Sean Astin (CARL)
Sean has appeared in dozens of motion pictures. His first major appearance in a feature film was as “Mikey Walsh” in The Goonies, one of the most popular kids’ adventure films of all time. In Where the Day Takes You, his portrayal of a strung-out, homeless kid on the streets of Hollywood marked a dramatic evolution in his career. Then, in 1993, he starred in TriStar Pictures’ Rudy, which established him as a working-class hero and an inspirational role model to people around the world. He is known worldwide as Samwise Gamgee in New Line Cinema’s blockbuster trilogy The Lord of the Rings, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s immensely popular book.
