Grange Hill star Sean Maguire unrecognisable 33 years on after Hollywood fame

Sean Maguire broke Grange Hill viewers hearts when his character Tegs left the BBC school drama in 1991.

Tegs had to leave when his step dad secured a job in Germany and actor Sean Maguire is now 45 and lives in LA with his family.

After Grange Hill, Sean spent a year on EastEnders as troubled teen Aidan Brosnan.

Joining the soap aged 17 in 1993, Sean took on tough storylines focused on homelessness and drug abuse which culminated in a near suicide attempt for Aidan.

While he was stopped from taking his own life by girlfriend Mandy Salter (Nicola Stapleton), he blamed her for ruining his life and fled to Ireland.

Sean then became a pop star pin up after leaving Walford, scoring eight top 30 hits including Good Day which peaked at number 12 in the UK.

Now, decades on from his soap and pop fame, Sean looks all grown up.

His Instagram page shows him bearded, with blonde hair and a moustache. He likes to wear lounge tops with blazer jackets and a handful of loudly-printed shirts.

Sean married former police detective Tanya Flynn in 2012 and the couple have two sons Flynn Patrick, 5, and Leo James, 3. They also recently welcomed a baby girl.

In an emotional message on September 8, Sean wrote: "Feeling very grateful to my incredible wife Tanya for bringing our beautiful daughter Amélie Rose into the world.

"The boys & I couldn’t be more in love with her. Our family is complete."

Sean moved to California in 2000 and last year finally became a US citizen just in time to vote in the presidential election.

His career has gone from strength to strength in the States.

He played the lead role in 300 parody Meet The Spartans, starred alongside Kevin Hart in fantasy comedy Krod Mandoon, and took over the part of Robin Hood in ABC's Once Upon A Time.

In addition to acting, he also teaches aspiring thespians through his business The Players Conservatory.
