In 1994, he left the show to take a starring role in the BBC drama series Dangerfield , playing Marty Dangerfield. He has also appeared in Holby City and Sunburn . In 1995, Maguire was voted "3rd person you'd most like to see get messy" by CBBC viewers and famously received a custard pie in his face from presenter Chris Jarvis dressed as "The Anorak." Barry Foy, who played Billinge Boy in Hollyoaks, was top.

Maguire then pursued a career in music, releasing three albums: his self-titled debut album in 1994, Spirit in 1996, and Greatest Hits in 1998. Maguire's biggest hit was Good Day, which reached number 12 in May 1996. During this time, Maguire appeared on the Childliners record The Gift of Christmas with acts such as the Backstreet Boys, E.Y.C., MN8, Deuce, Ultimate Kaos, Let Loose, East 17, Peter Andre, Michelle Gayle, Dannii Minogue and many more. Maguire announced his retirement from the music industry during his final performance at Maesteg Town Hall, part of his 'Chick N Bay 9T5 4EVA' tour . Emotional scenes were witnessed in the audience as Sean launched into his final song “Gone and Long Forgotten”. Not content with acting on TV, he has branched out into films.

In 2001, Maguire played the title role in the TV-film Prince Charming opposite Bernadette Peters, Christina Applegate and Billy Connolly – with Martin Short as his assistant, Rodney. In 2005, he also made The Third Wish – which co-starred actors Jenna Mattison, Armand Assante, Betty White and James Avery.
