Sean Pertwee (born 4 June 1964) is an English actor. He is the son of actor Jon Pertwee and his second wife Ingeborg Rhoesa.
Pertwee was born in London, the son of Ingeborg and Jon Pertwee, who played the third incarnation of The Doctor in the television series Doctor Who. They moved to Stockton-on-Tees when Pertwee was twelve years old. He attended Teddington School in London.
In the early 1980s, Pertwee was cast as Captain Fitzpatrick in the play Tom Jones, based on the novel by Henry Fielding. After leaving Sunbury College, Pertwee trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and, after graduating in 1986, toured with the Royal Shakespeare Company for three years. He co-owned the Natural Nylon film production company along with Sadie Frost, Jude Law, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewan McGregor. The company folded in 2003.
Pertwee starred in the 2008 film Doomsday as Doctor Talbot. His voice is frequently heard in a variety of television commercials, documentaries and video games, including the medieval empire-building computer game Medieval: Total War and futuristic war games Killzone (as Colonel Gregor Hakha), Killzone 2 (as Colonel Mael Radec) and Fire Warrior (as Governor Severus). He is also the voice behind the Northeast's tourism advertisement which started broadcasting at the start of 2009. He is the current narrator of Masterchef: The Professionals, replacing India Fisher for the fourth series which began on 7 November 2011.
Sean appeared on the film Devil's Playground, a zombie horror film directed by Mark McQueen. He stars alongside Danny Dyer, Jaime Murray, Janet Montgomery and Craig Fairbrass. The film was released in October 2010. Pertwee appeared in the Nazi zombie film The 4th Reich which he filmed in spring 2010, directed by Shaun Smith.
In 2010, Sean Pertwee appeared in a Party political broadcast in support of the Labour Party. Sean's recent dramatic work for BBC Radio 4 includes playing the actor Oliver Reed in the play Burning Both Ends by Matthew Broughton.
He also is the new voice over for MasterChef: The Professionals.
Pertwee is the brother of Dariel Pertwee, grandson of actor and screenwriter Roland Pertwee, and is more distantly related to actor Bill Pertwee. He married make-up artist Jacqui Hamilton-Smith, daughter of Anthony Hamilton-Smith, on 12 June 1999 at the House of Lords. Jacqui gave birth to twins, Alfred and Gilbert, around Christmas 2001. They were born prematurely; Gilbert died in April 2002. The family lives in Stockwell. Pertwee has said that Alfred is a fan of Doctor Who, both of Tennant's Tenth Doctor and his father's Third Doctor.
