Sean Brosnan is an actor, artist, poet and filmmaker.
Sean received his BA degree with Honors from The Central School of Speech and Drama in London England at the age of 21. Sean Studied Poetry underneath Rick Bursky at UCLA and has been deeply immersed in the arts since the death of his mother (Cassandra Brosnan) at the tender age of eight.
After drama school Sean landed the role of Romeo, with the British Shakespeare Company’s production of Romeo and Juliet. It toured Europe for six months and Sean found himself garnering the attention of Hollywood casting directors.
Soon after, Sean was cast as Cpl. Daniel Redman in the critically acclaimed HBO miniseries "Generation Kill", which was nominated for eleven Emmys and won three. Sean then went off to star in a number of films: "My Horizon", starring Nick Nolte, "Don Peyote" with Anne Hathaway “What dreams will Travel” with Val Kilmer and “UFO” with Jean Claude Van damn.
Having grown up in Hollywood visiting and working on movie sets, Sean has maintained critical alliances in the industry and decided to set up a production company with his wife (writer and producer) Sanja Banic.
Knightmarcher was established in 2012 when Sean made his writing and directorial debut with the featurette, "The Kid", which had its world premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in London. “The Kid” went on to win Festival Darling at the Louisville International Festival of Film, won the Director Breakthrough Spotlight Award at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and best Original Screenplay at the Malibu film festival.
Sean’s insatiable appetite for filmmaking and his celerity for putting films together allowed him to write and direct “63 Lbs”, starring Michael Madsen, “The Face of C” which deals with the ideas and taboos of death, and produced alongside his wife and business partner Sanja Banic eight short films within a three year period. All of which were accepted and awarded in prestigious film festivals from Cannes to Rotterdam.
Sean’s Feature film debut MY FATHER DIE, which Sean wrote, directed and produced, will be premiering at SxSw in 2016. Simultaneously, he will be announcing his comic book series “We were all Gods,” of which Sean is the writer and creator.
Sean and Sanja, the founders of KnightMarcher are set to start pre-production on their next film titled ABASHED AND AMUSED later this spring, which is written by Sanja Banic and is based on true events.
When Sean is not on set he is either writing, painting or reading and most recently spending as much time with his beautiful baby daughter (Marley Cassandra Brosnan) as humanly possible.
