A true renaissance man, Sean Kanan epitomizes the expression “triple threat“ having achieved success as an actor, producer and author. Sean’s first book, The Modern Gentleman: Cooking and Entertaining with Sean Kanan received rave reviews. His second book, Success Factor X, became an Amazon new release best seller one week after its release and was recently named one of the twenty most inspirational books in the last two decades by Book Authority.

Sean’s acting career exploded with his breakout performance as a villain, Mike Barnes, in the The Karate Kid III beating out over two thousand hopefuls in an open call to his iconic award winning roles in daytime television

playing black sheep AJ Quartermaine on General Hospital to his critically acclaimed portrayal of Deacon Sharpe on The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, television’s most syndicated show in history seen in over one hundred countries. Having appeared in more than one thousand episodes of network television and fifteen feature films, Sean is recognized around the world.

Sean has created and stars in the critically acclaimed and Emmy award winning, digital series, Studio

City exclusively on Amazon Prime. Sean won the Indie Series Award’s Outstanding Lead Actor in a digital drama for his heartbreakingly and humorous portrayal of Sam Stephens aka Dr. Pierce Hartley.

Sean is very active in numerous charitable organizations including The American Cancer Society, various animal advocacy groups and serves as the youth ambassador for Boo2Bullying. Sean and wife, Michele, split their time between Los Angeles and Palm Springs where he has a star on the walk of fame. He spends his free time practicing martial arts, cooking, traveling and studying multiple foreign languages including Italian and Mandarin.

Sean will challenge your audience…

Everyone has a masterpiece that exists within them. That masterpiece is their most authentic self that allows them to live their best life. In order to do this there are two truths that must be acknowledged. First: Where you are is who you are. You’re current life is a result of the decisions and choices that you have made. You must take responsibility. Second: The universe wants you to succeed. Success is in our DNA. The instinct to survive is the basis of success. Now that you’ve accepted responsibility for where you are and accept that the universe wants you to succeed there is no more room for victimhood. I will challenge the audience to create new associations and stories attached to the events in their lives that will motivate and propel them rather than frustrate and limit them.

I was a celebrity contestant on the Italian version of dancing with the stars. It was an absolutely amazing, difficult, and crazy experience. I lived in Italy for almost a year and made friendships which will last a lifetime. I also lasted nine weeks on the show which for a guy with two left feet ain’t too bad. Oh yeah, I had to do the entire show in Italian.
