The talented teenager has achieved his dream, taking the first steps towards a career in acting and film. He will be based in Sydney for the next two years.

Sean topped the school in drama and also topped the Narooma RFS brigade’s call-out efforts being the fire fighter who responded to the most incidents in the last few months.

“His dedication, commitment and enthusiasm for serving his community will be put to good use when he embarks on a new chapter in his life,” brigade spokesperson Gillian Kearny said.

“Quite a lot of actors have played the role of firefighter on the small and big screen but Sean won’t even have to act if he lands a part as a firefighter - he is the real deal."

A photo has been taken and will be kept for “posterity” as the brigade members are certain that Sean will one day be famous.

Former brigade Captain Mick Marchini posted on Facebook that: “There will always be a hook for you here for your helmet on your return”.

Sean hopes to join the brigade on his breaks for Film school when he can but recognises that he will be very busy for the next two years.

“Our loss will be the small and big screen’s gain,” current brigade Captain Adrian Cooper said. 

“We proudly call Sean one of our own, Narooma’s very own connection with the bright lights and glamour of the film and acting world. Good luck Sean. You will be missed, come back soon.”

It’s been a big week for Sean not only graduating from high school but also leading the Narooma Theatrics group at the annual Narooma Christmas carols. Check out all the carol pics
