Sean Maguire is the British actor who portrays Robin Hood and Robin of Locksley (Wish Realm) on ABC's Once Upon a Time and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.


Sean Martin Michael Maguire[2] was born on April 18, 1976 in the town of Ilford in the county of Essex in the United Kingdom. He is one of six children; his siblings are Darren, Ciaran, Michael, Ellie and Katherine Maguire.[2] Sean began acting at the age of five in John Mortimer's autobiographical television adapted film A Voyage Round My Father. At eleven, he became well known as Terence "Tegs" Ratcliffe in the British television drama Grange Hill from 1987 to 1991 followed by his appearance in British soap opera EastEnders as Aidan Brosnan. Briefly, in 1994, Sean pursued a singing career with his debut album entitled Sean Maguire, which continued through into 1996 to include both a second album and a compilation album in 1998. Overseas, he was well received in the 2008 American spoof film Meet the Spartans.[1]

He is married to Tanya Flynn.[3] On January 20, 2015, Sean announced his wife's first pregnancy.[4] On July 14, 2015, Sean and his wife have welcomed their first son, Flynn Patrick Maguire.[5] On June 21, 2017, Sean announced his wife's second pregnancy.[6] On December 16, 2017, Sean and his wife welcomed their second son, Leo James Maguire.[7]


Sad to hear that Once upon a time is coming to an end. It was a great honor playing Robin Hood. I will cherish the incredible friendships I have made and always be indebted to the incomparable fans around the world who have given me so much. I wish love and the best of luck to everyone on their new ventures. @OnceABC @onceabcofficial[14]
