Fuck I am who I am / Sean Edwards
Sean Jefferson Edwards, age 49.
Sean was born in Leeds,Yorkshire and raised in Acton in West London by his single mother and two siblings. Music, dance and theatre were big factors in his life growing up, so it's no wonder he became a performance artist (actor, dancer, clown, musician). After a brief stint as a child actor, Sean went on to become an integral member of a local community theatre group, representing the UK in various international theatre festivals, resulting in a scholarship to study mime and physical theatre at age 18. Since then Sean has worked extensively in video, film and theatre, with such luminaries as STOMP, George Michael, Guy Ritchie, Secret Cinema and PunchDrunk.
