Sean McCann received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his recurring role in the series Night Heat at the 1987 Gemini Awards. It was the beginning of an incredibly active period for this fine Canadian actor. Just one year later he would land the role that quickly became one of his favorite. He was cast as Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, in The King Chronicles. Directed by Donald Brittain, the mini-series met with enormous popular and critical acclaim. In 1999, he won a Gemini Award for Best Guest Actor in a Series for Power Play. McCann was twice nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Pre-School Series, for 1998’s beloved Noddy where he played the role of Grandpa Noah Tomten.
