South African born actor, Sean Cameron Michael, started acting professionally at the age of twelve in musical theatre. Today, with over thirty productions under his belt, highlights include the Vita Award winning, On the Open Road, at the Civic Theatre in Johannesburg and recently as Father Huddleston in the Naledi award-winning musical-opera, The Mandela Trilogy (based on the life-story of Nobel Peace Prizewinner, Nelson Mandela). Michael trained at the Maas-Phillips College of Speech and Drama, as well as privately with Peter Kelley (New York), Paul Weber (Los Angeles) and Joe Bill (Chicago). He became a household name in his home country as a TV presenter on SABC's Teleschool, as well as playing the recurring role of Brett in the popular soap opera, Egoli: Place of Gold (1991), and the leading role of Miles Stuart in the South African version of the UK cult drama This Life (2004). In 2006 Michael played Fergus Buchan in director Regardt van den Bergh's multi-award winning feature film Faith Like Potatoes (2006). This was followed by Mnet's dramatic mini-series, Ella Blue (2008), for director Darrell James Roodt. Internationally, Michael was first seen back in 1997 in the popular US TV series, The Adventures of Sinbad (1996), as Young Timur. He then played a number of cameo roles in British and American TV series and features, including CI5: The New Professionals (1998), Shark Attack 2 (2000), Pirates of the Plain (1999), Blast (2004) and Charlie Jade (2005). In 2005 he landed the support lead role of Don Beatty in Bryan Singer and Dean Devlin's Emmy winning sci-fi mini-series, The Triangle (2005) opposite Bruce Davison and Sam Neill. 2008 was a bumper year for Sean internationally, playing psychotic Cockney mutineer, Nolan Moore, in NBC's Golden Reel Award-winning Crusoe (2008) and as French United Nations worker, Charles Solenz, in Fox's multi Emmy and Golden Globe winning feature, 24:Redemption, based on 24 (2008), opposite Jon Voight and Kiefer Sutherland. Over 12 million viewers tuned into FOX for the film premier, while the NY Post was quoted as saying that 24 had found a new villain in Africa and that Michael's character was "possibly the most spineless character ever created for the series." This was followed by the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated Invictus (2009) for director Clint Eastwood; the Prism Award-winning Natalee Holloway (2009) for Sony Pictures; Albert Schweitzer (2009) for Warner Bros; and Outcasts (2010) for BBC America.

In 2012 Michael played the lead in Animal Planet's TV special, Mermaids: The Body Found (2011), scoring the highest viewership ratings for the channel since 2003. Other credits included Death Race: Inferno (2012) for Universal; HBO's Golden Globe nominated The Girl (2012); and the popular Strike Back (2010) series for HBO/Sky opposite the legendary Charles Dance (Game of Thrones). He also provided the voice of the Landlord in Universal's global hit, Safe House (2012) opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Upcoming releases include The Challenger Disaster (2013), opposite Oscar winner William Hurt for BBC Films, Jimmy in Pink (2013) for Light & Dark Films and The Salvation (2014) opposite Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green and Jonathan Pryce for Zentropa Entertainment.
