Dylan Walsh born November 17, 1963 is an American actor. He is best known as Dr. Sean McNamara in the FX television series Nip/Tuck and for his role in the movie Congo. Walsh spent the first 10 years of his life traveling the world with his parents, who worked in the U.S. Foreign Service. After settling in Washington, D.C., the teen began appearing in high-school and professional stage productions, eventually landing a recurring role on the sitcom Kate & Allie. Film parts followed with his debut in the 1989 comedy Loverboy. In 1996, he starred in Eden with his current wife, Joanna Going, although he was married to actress Melora Walters at the time. His years of solid work impressed Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy enough to write a star-making part specifically for him. Walsh was born Charles M. Walsh in Los Angeles, California; his parents worked for the Foreign Service- they met in Ethiopia. As a result, Walsh lived in East Africa, India, and Indonesia before age ten. His family returned to the United States and settled in Virginia, where Walsh began acting in high school. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1986 with a degree in English. After graduating from college, Walsh moved to New York City to act professionally.
