Bio

Sean Berdy is an American actor and comedian best known for his starring role as Emmett Bledsoe in the family drama television series Switched at Birth.

Berdy was born to perform and has never let his deafness get in the way of him following his passion for entertaining. His first stage as a young boy was his parents' bed where he put on shows for delighted family and friends alongside his younger brother Tyler, who would handle DJ and lighting needs for the events.

At a young age, Sean also became fascinated by magic, honed his skills in the art, and shared with his brother, Tyler the top award for young magicians at the World Deaf Magicians Festival held in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Sean received his first big break in acting when a casting call went out for a young deaf actor for The Sandlot 2, the 2005 comedic sequel to The Sandlot.

Sean's formal acting career was launched, and he went on to play roles in films including The Bondage (2006), The Deaf Family (2007), and The Legend of the Mountain Man (2008).

In addition to Sean's film career, he has been featured in numerous public service commercials.

In between filming engagements, Sean toured the country performing with highly acclaimed musical groups. His inspired dance rendition of Michael Jackson's The Way You Make Me Feel performed entirely in American Sign Language was a tremendous hit among his deaf peers.

Sean was named Mr. Deaf Teen America. In this role he was asked to make public appearances across the country for one year.
