Sean Cavanaugh, portrayed by Josh Henderson, is a supporting character seen on 90210, the fourth series of the Beverly Hills, 90210 continuity.


Season 1

After arriving in Beverly Hills, Sean claimed to be the son of Harry Wilson and Tracy Clark, as the two had a child together while they were both teenagers.

Sean introduced himself to the Wilsons at the 16th birthday party of Harry's daughter, Annie Wilson, also meeting Tracy's daughter Naomi Clark. He was soon invited to stay with Wilsons while in town. His arrival initially prompted a degree of jealousy in Dixon Wilson, due to the amount of time spent between Sean and Harry. However, Dixon and Harry eventually resolved the matter with a discussion, leading Dixon and Sean become friends. During a private phone call, Sean later informed someone that he'd arrived in Beverly Hills and had won over the family.

Annie and her mother, Debbie Wilson eventually began growing suspicious of Sean's identity, particularly when Annie overheard one of his phone calls. Sean then claimed that he was being harassed by men who wanted him to pay his adopted father's gambling debt, and that going to the authorities for help would be risky. When Harry and Tracy offered to give Sean the money, Debbie and Annie confronted Harry and requested a paternity test. Sean agreed but suddenly left town the next morning without telling anyone. It was also revealed that he'd received a lot of money from the Clark family. This led the Wilsons, Naomi and a reluctant Tracy to conclude that Sean was not who he claimed to be, but someone who'd intended to scam them.
