Sean Harmon’s Early Life
Sean Harmon was born in Burbank, California on April 25th, 1988.
His father is renowned actor Mark Harmon whose most prominent role is Jethro Gibbs in the television show NCIS.
Though Mark began acting in the 1970s, he spent a large amount of time on NCIS, appearing on the show from 2003 to 2021.

Mark and Pam were married in 1987, having Sean just one year later. Sean has one brother, Ty Christian, who was born in 1992. Ty Christian is a screenwriter.
Mark and Pam have always kept a low profile when it comes to family life, rarely appearing in public with their children. However, it is known that Sean was raised in California, attending Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks. Not long after, he began following in his parent’s footsteps.
His most notable foray into acting was with his dad, Mark Harmon. Harmon, the elder, is most widely known for his role as Jethro Gibbs on the CBS police procedural television series NCIS.
In 2008, at twenty years old, Sean starred as a younger version of his father’s character on the episode “Heartland .”He would make seven appearances in total on NCIS, each time portraying a young Jethro Gibbs.
However, Sean seemed to ultimately decide that acting was not for him. Relying on his years of Muay Thai kickboxing training, which he began as a junior in high school, Sean turned to stunt work.

Sean is listed as the stunt coordinator for a short film he wrote and directed called Catholic Schoolgirl Chainsaw Showdown.
His other stunt coordinator listings include Golden Revenge, The Labyrinth, The Sweet Taste of Redemption, Micro, and Lady of Rage. His stunt performer titles include Alone, Haven: Origins, Dumb and Dumber To, and American Reunion.
