Sean Kanan (on General Hospital, Karate Kid, Studio City & New Book)


Sean Kanan steps Behind The Rope. Let us start at the beginning. Sean moved to LA many years ago to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. His first big break came in 1989 when he was cast in The Karate Kid Part III. The following year he starred on the Fox television series “The Outsiders”. As brilliant a show as that was, it was cancelled way too soon which led to an audition for a little show known as General Hospital. Sean got the job to play the infamous A.J. Quartermaine and the rest is history. Sean is kind enough to entertain our many questions about his General Hospital Co-Stars Ricky Martin, Vanessa Marcil, and Antonio Sabato Jr. He also discusses some of his other “Soap Opera” friends such as Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. Sean discusses the differences between being on General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless. He should know as he has had starring roles on them all. One of the roles he is most proud of is his current role in Studio City, a stellar Emmy Award Winning Amazon Prime Dramedy that he also created and spent many years trying to get off the ground. A Daytime Soap Show within a show, Sean created an alternate world he knows everything about getting the help of some of his soap friends such as Tristan Rogers. Finally, Sean, author of “The Modern Gentleman” and “Success Factor X”, has a third book coming out soon and if it is anything like the first two, it will be a must read.@sean.kanan@behindvelvetrope@davidyontefBonus Episodes Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetropeMerch Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198This episode is brought to you by http://www.eliterapidfatloss.com Menton David Yontef & Behind The Velvet Rope Podcast when contactingSee acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
