Sean Duffy

Actor, Director

Best known to the public for an extended career as an actor — he co-starred in Mortimer's Patch and won an award playing a dopey farmer in comedy Willy Nilly — Sean Duffy alternated acting gigs with two decades editing for television. Later he moved into directing, working on a range of shows from Heartland to one-off documentaries.

It was amazing how easy it was, to be honest. That's because I'd spent 18 years on and off in a dark room, looking at other people's mistakes. So I knew exactly what I needed to do. Sean Duffy, on making the transition from editing to directing
