Born and raised in family working in the showbiz, Sean Flynn started working early in his life. He first appeared on a commercial that needed a kid to leap from a high rock into water and to appear in frame of the camera on the surface of the water.
Before turning 10, Sean was spotted as a guest in a December 1996 episode of FOX/Sci Fi Channel series "Sliders," as well as featured in the films "Simon Birch" (1998; starring Ian Michael Smith, Joseph Mazzello, Ashley Judd, Oliver Platt, and David Strathairn), a drama by Mark Steven Johnson inspired by John Irving's novel, and "The Grail" (1999), a short film by Joie Gharrity in which he co-starred with Tony Denman.

He then appeared as a guest in a February 2002 episode of Fox animated sitcom "Family Guy" and supported Alicia Silverstone, Rachael Leigh Cook, Woody Harrelson, and John Cleese in Gavin Grazer's crime/comedy film "Scorched" (2003).
2005 proved to be Sean's breakthrough year when he snagged the role of Chase Matthews, the main guy character who has a "secret" crush on the title character, on Nickelodeon's Emmy Award-nominated live-action sitcom starring Britney Spears little sister Jamie Lynn Spears, "Zoey 101" (2005-2008).
