Love Out Loud for Sean Kanan

Soap Opera Digest had the right idea in nominating Sean Kanan as outstanding newcomer back in 1992 for his portrayal of General Hospital’s A.J. Quartermaine. Corbin Bernsen also knew what he was doing when he cast him in the feature film Carpool Guy. Other feature film credits include, Sons of Italy, as well as Hack and Jack Rio, both of which he produced. He recently completed a four month run in the hit play, It’s Just Sex. Look for the Antonio Banderas produced web series, Camera Café, an office comedy shot solely from the angle of a coffee machine. This new web series has already been popularly adapted in several other countries and is backed by some heavy hitters, giving it a pretty good foundation. Camera Café also allows Sean to utilize his comedic skills. Source

For five years he portrayed the studly cad Deacon Sharpe on The Bold & The Beautiful, a character he has now brought to The Young & The Restless. Michael Fairman’s interview with him is not only revealing but indicative of the regenerative nature of the astrological sign of Scorpio of which Sean is a native. In addition to acting, Kanan frequents the comedy club circuit and makes numerous appearances at the world famous Hollywood Improv and the HaHa where he offers his perspective on his 10 years in daytime television, as well as living in Italy and getting beaten up by Daniel Larusso in The Karate Kid III. He also travels with the USO, entertaining in places such as Bosnia and Kosovo.

Mr. Kanan is no stranger to the healing process and his stepping up to our fund-raiser for AIDS Walk Los Angeles is his expression of solidarity with that very process. We are very proud to have him on our team. He'll be at H-Wood on October 15, 2009.

Here is his official site, the source of much of this information.
