Sean Kanan's interest in show biz began in high school, where he participated in stage productions and performed in area comedy clubs. He went on to Boston University as a political science major, but continued to study acting. Kanan relocated to Los Angeles and got a role in the low-budget horror flick Hide And Go Shriek in 1988 and The Karate Kid III in 1989. In 1993, Kanan got his first steady daytime gig as GENERAL HOSPITAL black sheep AJ Quartermaine, a role he played until 1997. Two years later, he resurfaced on SUNSET BEACH as Jude and in 2000 shook up BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL as smarmy, tormented Deacon Sharpe.
