Biography by Cammila Collar

Actor Sean Murray began filling up his resumé when he was just a young teenager, making small appearances in movies like Hocus Pocus and This Boy's Life. He continued to steadily wrack up small and midsized roles in films and on television until 2004, when he joined the cast of the series NCIS playing Timothy McGee. His stepsister, Troian Bellisario, has appeared in NCIS as Murray's character's sister.
