Actor Sean Murray is an especially low-key celebrity even though he stars on one of TV’s biggest shows. Since entering the hit series in the seventh episode of the first season, Murray has become not only a main character, but one of the ones to stick it out after the exit of a few NCIS stars. When he isn’t in front of the camera, however, he lives a very regular life, and spends his time being a husband and father. Get to know more about the talented actor with these 8 things you never knew about Sean Murray:

8. Family Connections

Although he didn’t exactly follow in his father’s footsteps when it comes to his career path, the actor’s work and his father’s crossed in a unique way. Murray’s father, Craig Harland Murray, spent 30 years as a naval officer, and of course now Sean stars as a special agent for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). Although his father didn’t understand wanting to be an actor, Murray says his dad enjoys the connection. “My father gets such a kick out of that.” He added, “To my father, the whole concept (of acting) was just insane. To be a kid and not have any desire to do anything but, I really had no backup plan. I said, ‘This is it, this is what I want to do.’ I remember my father many times saying to me, ‘You realize you have nothing to fall back. If this doesn’t work out — and it doesn’t work out for most people statistically.’ My dad is a very logical person. I said, ‘Yeah, but it’s all I can think of. It’s the only thing I want to be a part of.’”

7. Early Life

Sean Harland Murray was born on November 15, 1977 in Bethesdan, Maryland, to Vivienne Bellisario and Craig Harland Murray. With his father in the military, Murray moved around a lot as a kid and lived in Australia, Singapore, London and California with Murray explaining, “I was never in one place for more than two years,” but he never felt like he missed out on anything. “I remember all kinds of positives for it. I remember very specifically being conscious of the chance to re-create yourself whenever we started someplace. So it was almost like it went toward an acting kind of nature. I remember thinking about that stuff as a kid. Bottom line is, you are who you are, but every time assimilating to new kids and going through those ages is a hard thing, but that’s what I grew up doing. It was always just what I did.”
