IMTA alum Sean Faris in Pawn!


IMTA alum Sean Faris stars in the feature film Pawn.  Anchor Bay Films picked up the rights (English-speaking territories) at Cannes 2012.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Pawn, directed by David A. Armstrong and written by Jerome Anthony White, centers on a petty robbery that spirals into a hostage situation after three gunmen hold up a diner that's a front for the mob. It stars Michael Chiklis, Common, Marton Csokas, Sean Faris, Stephen Lang, Ray Liotta, Nikki Reed, Jessica Szoh, and Forest Whitaker. "


Sean competed at an IMTA Convention in New York in 1999. When asked about his experience at IMTA, he has famously said,"I already had agents wanting to meet me and I hadn't even gotten my luggage yet!" Sean met and signed with Dino May Management and began starring in television and feature film projects. You may have seen Sean in Fox's Reunion, ABC's Life As We Know it, The CW's The Vampire Diaries or in the feature films, Never Back Down, Yours, Mine and Ours, Sleepover and Forever Young.

Sean was also recently announced to be the lead in the remake of Bonnie and Clyde.
