Played by: Sean Lock

Sean, the main character in 15 Storeys High, is a misanthropic, cynical recluse.

He is an anti-social eccentric who wants to live by his own peculiar set of rules, and ensure that his henpecked lodger Errol abides by them too.

Sean works as a lifeguard at the local swimming baths where he takes pleasure in spoiling peoples fun and upsetting the swimmers.

He has an acute phobia for being touched and does his best to avoid dealing with other people.

Thanks to his lack of social skills, Sean manages to get himself into a succession of awkward situations: from teaching a swimming student with a psychotic husband, to conducting a bitter feud with a gang of kids intent on destroying him.
