Sean Fletcher the actor!

Sean tried his hand at acting for the series Keeping Faith.

He appeared in two episodes of the 2020 series as Sean Jenkins QC.

On GMB he said he thought he was mainly offered the role because he speaks Welsh.

He told his co-host Charlotte Hawkins: “This was in the summer. I had the chance to appear in Keeping Faith which is a BBC drama.

“One of the main reasons I got it was because the drama is filmed in English and Welsh and I speak Welsh.”

But Charlotte praised his acting skills, responding with: “I am sure it was your acting ability.

“It could be the start of something you never know. I watched it and it was a proud moment. Well done.”

Sean and Kate Garraway are close

Sean said that he was deeply moved by Kate Garraway’s husband Derek Draper’s COVID-19 battle.

He said that it made him realise the importance of family.

He relayed a heart to heart conversation he had with Kate to the MailOnline: “We’ve sort of got talking about how you can plough on in your life with all sorts of things and so many things feel really important and then something will happen.

“So for me I was talking to her about my son and it was like ‘oh my gosh none of that other stuff matters’ and of course her with Derek.

“Suddenly something happens and all those other things you thought were absolutely crucial are just not important and you know, we didn’t have a moment we weren’t hugging or anything like that, but I just thought there was a moment of just ‘oh yeah.’
