WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Mare of Easttown.

Frank Sheehan is the ex-husband of Mare who he has two children with but sadly their son Kevin died by suicide.

He remains close with the family as he lives close by in a new house he shares with his fiancé.

At the end of episode two, there is a major twist as Mare interviews Jess (Ruby Cruz), the best friend of Erin McMenamin (Cailee Spaeny), the teenager who was killed.

Jess revealed she believed the father of Erin’s baby wasn’t her high school boyfriend Dylan but Frank who was her maths teacher, giving him a motive for murder.

Who is Frank Sheehan in Mare of Easttown? 

Frank is portrayed by actor David Denman who has made multiple small appearances in some of the best-loved shows.

These include ER, CSI: Miami, Bones, Grey’s Anatomy, The X Files and Brothers and Sisters just to name a few.

However, fans are most likely to remember him for starring as Roy Anderson in the American sitcom The Office.

He is engaged to Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) for most of the series before she calls it off and ends up marrying colleague Jim Halpert (John Krasinski).

The Office isn’t the only popular series actor Denman has starred in either.

He portrayed Tony Nicastro in Drop Dead Diva, Ed in Parenthood and Mark Holter in HBO’s Outcast.

In terms of his movie career, Denman featured in the 2017 Power Rangers movie as Sam Scott and 2020 action film Greenland as Ralph Vento.

Mare of Easttown is Denman’s latest project with no other films or shows in the pipeline as of yet, according to his IMDB page.
