Grange Hill and EastEnders star Sean Maguire looks totally unrecognisable 33yrs after playing Tegs Ratcliffe

EX EastEnders and Grange Hill star Sean Maguire is completely unrecognisable from the telly roles which rocketed him to fame.

The actor, who is now based in LA and aged 45, joined BBC kids TV as angel-faced Tegs Ratcliffe in 1988.

Yet his character was forced to quit Grange Hill school in 1991 when his step-dad secured a job in Germany.

The English-American performer later spent a year in Albert Square as troubled teen Aidan Brosnan.

Joining the soap as a 17-year-old in 1993, Sean took on tough storylines focused on homelessness and drug abuse which culminated in a near suicide attempt.

While he was stopped from taking his own life by girlfriend Mandy, he blamed her for ruining his life and fled to Ireland.

Sean became a pop star after leaving Walford, scoring eight top 30 hits including Good Day which peaked at number 12 in the UK.

Yet after his absence from the limelight, brunette Sean has completely transformed his look.
