Bruce Lovat Seton was born in Simla, British India, the younger of two sons of Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Bruce Seton of Abercorn (1868-1934), 9th Baronet and his wife, Elma Armstrong, (died 1960) and was educated at the Edinburgh Academy and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst.


He met fellow actor Tamara Desni Willhelm (1911-2008) on the set of Blue Smoke in 1936, became her second husband in 1937 in London and divorced in 1940.


Bruce was commissioned into the Black Watch in 1929 as a 2nd Lieutenant, but resigned his commission in 1932. A brief interruption in his acting career came during the Second World War and in November 1939 he held the rank of Captain in the 10th Battalion, Cameronians (Scottish Rifles), ending the war as Major (temporary). His Service number was 44304 and he was awarded the Medal of Freedom.


Bruce began his acting career in the chorus line at Drury Lane Theatre and in 1935 he starred in Ralph Ince's film Blue Smoke as character Don Chinko.


On the death of his brother, Alexander (Sandy) Hay Seton (1904-1963) who had no male heirs, Bruce inherited the former's Seton Baronetcy. He married second wife actor Antoinette Cellier (Florence Antoinette Glossop Cellier) in 1940 in London. His address at this time was 15 Learmonth Gardens, Edinburgh. They had a daughter Lydia Antoinette Gordon Seton, born on 14 November 1941. Since he had no male heirs on his death in 1969, the title passed to his cousin, Christopher Bruce Seton (1909–1988).


He played Inspector Fabian of Scotland Yard in 1950s TV series Fabian of the Yard. The series was based on the career of the former Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Robert Fabian, who usually appeared briefly before the final fade-out to wind up the story.
