Bonus Trivia

.

"In the beginning, not knowing much about the business, I didn't really know what I was able to do. But Darnell [Martin, the director of 'I Like It Like That'] is a person I was really able to work with as a director to create a character. She opened me up to a new level of acting, it's very important to have a relationship with the director. If it takes working with a woman director like Darnell, then I may work with women directors forever." - Jon Seda quoted in Forehead magazine, May 1995
