Sean is scheduled to be with us all weekend long, May 8th to May 10th.
This is what Ottawa Comiccon says about Sean…
“Born in Pleasantville, New York, Maher trained at New York University, earning his drama degree in 1997. His initial foray in television was starring as the title character on the short-lived TV series RyanCaulfield: Year One, opposite James Roday (Psych). In 2000, he was part of the main cast on the Fox series The $treet, which also starred Jennifer Connelly, Giancarlo Esposito and Tom Everett Scott. That same year he appeared on the last season of the hit series Party of Five, as Adam Matthews, love interest to Julia (Neve Campbell).
It was in 2002 that he was cast on the much-loved space-western series Firefly as Simon Tam, a top trauma surgeon, who gave up his career in order to rescue his little sister, River Tam (Summer Glau), becoming a wanted fugitive in the process. He reprised his role from Firefly in the film Serenity (2005).
After Firefly ended, he took on guest roles in several high profile series, including CSI: Miami, Ghost Whisperer, Drop Dead Diva, The Mentalist, Human Target, and Warehouse 13, as well as important roles on NBC’s The Playboy Club and ABC Family’s Make it or Break it. In 2012, Firefly creator Joss Whedon in his award winning film Much Ado About Nothing, a modern retelling of William Shakespeare’s play of the same name. The film also stars several alumni from Joss Whedon-helmed productions, including, Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Tom Lenk (Buffy/Angel), Fran Kranz, Reed Diamond (Dollhouse), and Clark Gregg (The Avengers). April 2014 saw the release of the animated film Son of Batman, in which he voices DC Universe’s Dick Grayson (aka Nightwing), an adaptation of the Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert 2006 Batman and Son storyline. Most recently, Arrow fans may recall his guest-starring villainous turn as Mark Scheffer (aka Shrapnel), a serial bomber from Starling City.”
