Tributes paid to former Brookside actor Sean McKee, who died at the age of 54 after epileptic fit

Tributes have been paid to Liverpool actor Sean McKee, who has died suddenly at the age of 54. The former Brookside and Liverpool 1 actor passed away yesterday after suffering an epileptic fit at home, according to the Liverpool Echo. Friends and colleagues have taken to Twitter and Facebook to remember him, with Mark Moraghan writing: “Sad to hear about Sean McKee. Great actor gone too soon #RIP “Thoughts with his family.” Lindzi Germain, who starred in Dave Kirby’s Reds and Blues: The Ballad of Kenny and Dixie with him, tweeted: “Goodnight godbless my reds and blues hubby the wonderful Sean Mckee xx” And fellow actor Michael Ledwich added: “Gutted to hear about the passing of Sean McKee. Great actor and a

lovely fella to boot. Sleep well mate. You went far too soon. RIP.” Speaking to the ECHO today, McKee’s partner Karen Brown said: “He was such a good person. Acting aside, he was just a really, really good human being. “He’d had epilepsy since he was 14, but it didn’t ever stop him working, He never had a seizure on stage, even though he did lots of theatre work.”

Meanwhile manager Joanna Aicher, of Liverpool’s Bananafish Management which represented the performer, said: “Sean will be well and truly missed. A lovely, genuine guy who was blessed with natural acting ability. “He could have had the pick of any of the so called “big” London agents because of his quality and the calibre of his CV – but he stuck with us in Liverpool. “His loyalty was rewarded as lately he’d had some massive auditions including Game of Thrones.” The actor had recently filmed Outlander for Sony, and was most recently cast by Nina Gold to appear in BBC mini-series London Spy with Ben Whishaw. He started his screen career in Willy Russell’s 1983 TV drama One Summer, which also starred fellow young Liverpool actors David Morrissey and Ian Hart. Other screen appearances included Jimmy McGovern’s drama Legal, two years as Jamie Henderson in Brookside, and roles in Nice Guy Eddie, Dead Man’s Cards, Justice, and as a ‘bitter blue’ in Dave Kirby’s short 15 Minutes That Shook the World. Jo Aicher added: “He was just so easy to talk to and down to earth. I’ll miss him a lot – I just feel so desperately sad for Karen and all of his friends and family. “And for Sean – because he was really on the up; it’s a tragedy.”
