Sean O'Kane grew up in the back streets outside Glasgow, known as Cambuslang, in a family with twelve siblings. Needless to say casting was easy when putting on small plays for the relatives. He continued these plays during school, then at the tender age of 19, after a stint in the territorial army, Sean set off for a world wide adventure turning his hand to stunt work, modeling and acting in student films - constantly honing his skills as a thespian. Arriving in Hollywood in the early 80s. Read more... Precinct cop Det. McKenzie on Cagney and Lacey. When cast and crew discovered his young age and the fact that he lived in the parking lot in a truck, they took him under their wings and for three years and forty-five shows featured him in many episodes. Having a thick Glasgow accent impeded his chances of speaking on the show, which soon changed later on in his career. After laying down the Prime of Miss Jean Brody on Tape at the request of Tyne Daly, in return she encouraged the young actor to learn more accents to broaden his talents. Advice well heeded. He left the show Christmas of 1985 after being scouted by LA Models who sent him to Europe, and for the next three years he traveled the world non-stop modeling. As luck met preparation, Sean landed his first leading role in a madcap British TV show called Interceptor (1989). Starring and co-starring in films such as Magic Island (1995), Stone Soup (1993), and TV's Dream Team (1997), Sharpe's Justice (1997) and Taggart as well as countless voice overs on such films as Million Dollar Baby, Patriot Games and Blown Away. His career has gone from strength to strength.
