Sebastian Ryan Plumb "Bassy" is a Simmy award-winning actor and musician based in Bridgeport. He was born and raised in Sunset Valley. He is the youngest child of renowned composer Nathan Plumb and his longtime wife and partner, Shandra Bellingham Plumb, the former conductor of the Sunset Valley orchestra. His older sister is author and adventurer Savannah Plumb and his older half-brother was musician Noah Plumb. He is the grandson of Jamie Jolina and Nigel Plumb. He is of English, French, Irish, German, and Native Simerican descent.
Like his older sister, Sebastian is a child of privilege. His birth was a surprise, as his sister was a teenager at the time. His mother wanted to name him Johann Sebastian, after the composer Bach. His father refused, and they compromised on Sebastian. He grew up in the exclusive Summer Hill Court area of Sunset Valley, and was educated under the strict tutelage of his mother, who fully expected and desired him to go into the family business. But Sebastian had other plans. In addition to his guitar lessons, which were overseen by his mother, he took cooking lessons on his own, and also learned painting and charisma as well as other skills. Sebastian was given the nickname "Bassy" by his older sister Savannah, and it stuck.
Sebastian first became interested in acting in high school, when he played Romeo in his school’s production of Romeo and Juliet. But it wasn’t something he considered seriously as a career. He graduated from Sunset Valley's Community School for the Gifted with the highest marks in his class. He left the cozy confines of Sunset Valley for the bright lights of Bridgeport immediately after graduation. Indeed, when he first arrived, he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do with himself. It wasn't until he enrolled in a class taught by Kristy Verhoeven that he was sure of his path as an actor.
Like most young actors, Sebastian got his head start in soap opera. On 'As the Sims Turn' he played a variety of roles, including the dastardly John, who, among other things, slept with his brother's fiancée and got her pregnant. He then won a role as a young hot-shot doctor on the TV show "Bridgeport General" and then won the coveted lead in the movie version of 'Zombies? Zombies!' He is now set to play Dacian Landegraab, one-half of a pair of star-crossed lovers, in the upcoming period drama Pirates and Nobles, currently shooting in Barnacle Bay. He won the Sim's Choice Award as newcomer of the year, and followed that up with a Golden Simmy.
Sebastian's calling card as an actor is his versatility, his ability to play roles in many different settings and time periods. He's done everything from historical period pieces to space opera. This versatility has allowed him to become one of the most decorated and accomplished actors of his era.
Sebastian's love life has been all over the tabloids. When he was a teenager, he was involved with childhood friend Daisy Ramsey (granddaughter of Gage Briody and Dave Ramsey), Jeannine Ratliff, and town newcomer Noel Hong (who went on to date his nephew, Neil). Shortly after his arrival in Bridgeport, a video of him dancing with the notoriously reclusive pop superstar Lola Belle leaked over the internet and went viral, sparking persistent rumors of a romance between them. The publicists for both insisted that they were only friends. In an effort to dispel the rumors, Sebastian began dating one of Lola's backup singers, Kyra Foster, and their romance was the talk of the town. They dated for a few months until a family emergency called Sebastian back home to Sunset Valley. While in Sunset Valley he reconnected with Daisy Ramsey, who he never actually broke up with. He returned to Bridgeport two months later.
Kyra Foster learned about Sebastian's relationship with Daisy Ramsey and broke up with him. Angrily, she told her story to a tabloid, which angered Sebastian. She also leaked to the tabloid that she was pregnant with Sebastian's child, a claim that Sebastian denies to this day. After breaking up with Kyra Foster and leaving Bridgeport, he met Madison Westley, an aspiring singer from Starlight Shores who had been vacationing with her mother in Hidden Springs. The two of them shortly moved to Starlight Shores together, where they gave birth to a daughter, Kaydence Michele, the middle name coming from Madison's mother, Michele Guyton.
When pictures of Madison surfaced in Sim Gossip Today flirting with a number of random men in Lucky Palms, where she was doing a show, Sebastian broke up with her. He has returned to Starlight Shores in an attempt to revive his flagging movie career.
Rumors have spread that Sebastian has secretly married a singer named Cherise Hall in Sunlit Tides. The hasty wedding would be in keeping with his impulsive behavior on the romantic front.
Sebastian's first love, however, was food. This has some precedent in the family: His maternal grandmother, Daniella Bellingham, was a short-order cook in Twinbrook, and his mother, Shandra, is also excellent at the stove. He began cooking as a teen and was revered by his girlfriends for his culinary delights. He decided to open his restaurant "Bassy's" in Bridgeport.
His relationship with his precocious teenage daughter, Kaydence, is interesting and unusual. At times it has seemed more like Kaydence is the parent, as she currently manages his finances and has basically taken care of him since he won the custody battle with her mother Madison. He is in awe of her intelligence and maturity and she has loved his fun-loving ways but lately she has grown impatient with his seeming irresponsibility. In a stunning rant she let loose on him, telling him he needed to "start acting like a dad and less like an overgrown frat boy."
