‘The Goldbergs’
Sean Giambrone Got Big Break In Sea World Commercial (WATCH)

"When I was there it seemed like a great place to work and the animals seemed to be happy"


Sean Giambrone owes everything to Shamu!

The teenage star of THE GOLDBERGS says he wouldn’t be starring in a hit ABC comedy were it not for getting his big break in a series of commercials for Sea World.

“I did four or five commercials…it got me noticed by a manager,” he tells TheTVPage.com.

“I also got on the Jay Leno show because of that. They showed a clip of Osama Bin Laden and [in a spoof of the commercial] I was pointing to Osama.  It was so much fun.”

Sean, 16, says he hasn’t received any backlash from animal rights groups who vocally oppose marine theme parks.

“I have heard things about [the controversy] but when I was there it seemed like a great place to work and the animals seemed to be happy,” he says.

“But I guess not.”

THE GOLDBERGS airs Wednesdays at 8:30 PM on ABC.
