BIO

This auto-biography was written by Sean on February 8, 2002. He wanted to write a fictional bio of his life as he figured his wasn't too exciting.  After convincing him that some people might be interested, he came up with the following.

"The Life and Times of Mr. Sean Biggerstaff, Esq, MMus BME."

Born on the ides of March under a full moon in 1983 to a fireman and a community education worker, I initially suspected that I was the reincarnation of Julius Caesar. I soon realised that this couldn't be so as the idea of conquering Europe, or even living there, didn't appeal to me in the slightest. With the exception of a passing infatuation with the music of Michael Jackson, the 7 years immediately following my birth were fairly uneventful. Then I decided I wanted to act. So I did. 

I joined the local drama group in Maryhill which I attended for about 5 years. I got my first professional role as the son of MacDuff in Macbeth, directed by Michael Boyd at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow when I was 10. I then joined Scottish Youth Theatre and spent 6 years performing with them. I'm not ashamed. The shows were of a commendable standard and there really was very little nudity. It was at SYT that I was chosen for The Winter Guest. Alan Rickman (known to most of the kids as "the bad guy from Die Hard") popped along one day looking for two boys to accompany him to the coldest place on earth, Fife, for two months to make a film. Myself and the suspicious character that is Douglas Murphy were the lucky ones.

In 1999 I asked Alan if he knew anyone in London who may be interested in representing me and he put me in touch with Paul Lyon-Maris, his own agent at ICM. We met at his flat in Edinburgh and I apparently met his standards.  About a week later I successfully auditioned for Harry Potter. 

And the rest is history.
