Sean Flynn is an American actor. He is known for playing Chase on the Nickelodeon show Zoey 101.
He is the son of Gideon Amir, who is from a Jewish family, and Rory Flynn, who has Irish, Scottish, English, Welsh, and one quarter Mexican, ancestry.
Sean’s maternal grandfather was actor Errol Flynn (born Errol Leslie Thomson Flynn, the son of Theodore Thomson Flynn and Lily Mary Young). Errol was Australian, and was born in Battery Point, Tasmania. Theodore was the son of John Thompson/Thomas Flynn, whose parents were from Tipperary, Munster, Ireland, and of Jessie B. Thomson. Lily was the daughter of Capt. Frederick George Young, who was born in Sydney, City of Sydney, New South Wales, to an English-born mother, from West Haddon, Northamptonshire; and of Annie Edith Madden, who was born in Victoria, to an English-born father, from Holborn, London, Middlesex, England, and had Irish ancestry. Sean’s half-first cousin is actor Luke Flynn.
Sean’s maternal grandmother was actress and socialite Nora Eddington (born Lenora Verna Eddington; the daughter of Jack Alma Eddington and Rebecca Ruth Carpio). Nora was American, and was born in Chicago, Illinois. Jack was from a Mormon family, and was the son of John Alma Eddington, whose parents were English, and of Leonora/Leanor N. Wadsworth, whose father was English and whose mother was born in Wales, to an English father and to a Welsh mother. Rebecca was of Mexican descent, and was the daughter of Jose Maria “Joe” Carpio and Jesus Bargas. The family lived in Globe, Arizona.
Sean’s grandfather Errol was sometimes said to have been a descendant of midshipman Edward “Ned” Young, a mutineer who participated in the HMS Bounty incident, and of Ned’s Tahitian wife Mauatua. It appears that this genealogical link is not accurate.
