Sean Faris : Beck Merchant

For actor Sean Faris, life as he knows it has kicked into high gear. He received an MTV Movie Award for his lead role in Summit Entertainment’s hit “Never Back Down,” and starred as Betty White’s grandson and Jennifer Love Hewitt’s love interest in the CBS Hallmark Hall of Fame telefilm “The Lost Valentine.” In addition to his central role in the rugby-inspired feature “Forever Strong,” he appeared as Dennis Quaid’s eldest son in Paramount’s hit remake of the classic “Yours, Mine & Ours” and previously starred as the hunky object of affection in MGM’s comedy romp “Sleepover.” He most recently starred in the crime thriller “Pawn” opposite Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker.

In direct contrast, Faris starred as the lead in FOX’s acclaimed drama series “Reunion” which followed six close friends from their high school graduation to their 20th reunion. He previously led the cast of ABC’s dramatic series “Life As We Know It.” Based upon British author Melvin Burgess’ controversial novel Doing It, the acclaimed show chronicled the sexual antics of a group of high school friends in Seattle. For his role as sensitive jock Dino Whitman, he was heralded as a breakout talent by the likes of Daily Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, and USA Today. More recent forays into television included a multi-episode arc on The CW’s top-rated “Vampire Diaries” and ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars,” “Leverage,” and the broadcast “Supernatural” spin-off pilot.

No stranger to television, Faris has also guest-starred on such shows as “Smallville,” “One Tree Hill,” and “Boston Public,.” His big screen debut featured him alongside the likes of Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett in Michael Bay’s epic “Pearl Harbor.”

A Texas native, Faris moved to Ohio at age 12 and has been honing his craft in Los Angeles since moving four years upon his high school graduation.
