He was born in the Bethesda Navy Hospital in Maryland. Because his father worked in the army, he grew up on several military bases all over the world. For example, he even lived for a period in Australia, Singapore, London, and more.

When he was 15 years old, his parents divorced and he moved with his mother to Los Angeles. Sean wanted to be an actor from a young age. In the beginning, he got small parts.

His father, retired Navy Captain Craig Harland Murray, served more than 30 years in the military. His mother, Vivienne Lee, has dual citizenship with the United States.

Following her divorce from Sean’s father, she got married to American television producer Donald P. Bellisario, who became his stepfather. Sean has a brother as well, NSIS: Los Angeles producer Chad W Murray. He also has several stepsiblings, including actress Troian Bellisario and Michael Bellisario.

After getting some small roles, Sean worked hard to try and land a big role.

His first big role came in the crime television series JAG. But his biggest role was appearing as Timothy McGee in the NCIS drama series. Fun fact: his sister in the series is played by Troian Bellisario, his real-life stepsister.

Some of his movie credits include Hocus Pocus, This Boy’s Life, and Too Romantic.

Speaking about his personal life, Sean Murray met Carrie James, a teacher in 2004. They met at an event and got married the next year. Their first child, daughter Caitlyn Melissa Murray, was born in 2007. They welcomed their second child, their son River James in April 2010.
