Green was born and raised in West Philadelphia, a section of the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His parents are Barbara, an artist, and Herb Green, a math teacher. His parents divorced when Seth was 15, causing havoc in his personal life. However, he found refuge in URJ Camp Harlam in Kunkletown, Pennsylvania, where he had been going since he was five years old. His mother worked there for a couple of years as the art director. There he discovered that performing was his true calling. After his parents' divorce, he said that camp was a place where he could reinvent himself and be good at anything he wanted.
Green's first movie role was in the 1984 film A Billion for Boris. At eight, Green landed his first film assignment, a co-starring role in the 1984 film The Hotel New Hampshire with Jodie Foster and Rob Lowe. He appeared in the 1987 film Can't Buy Me Love.
