That’s right, the fact that black women do not age as rapidly or get attacked by wrinkles at a relatively young age is a source of jealousy of our melanin-challenged counterparts. I’ve been around Black women all my life so it came as a surprise to me when I discovered that many of my non-White college classmates and, later, my twenty-something co-workers were investing in expensive Estee Lauder anti-aging creams.This panic of aging and the idea that beauty had a fast-coming expiration date was an overshadowing theme in many of their lives.Michael Bruce Patrick Seater (born January 15, 1987), known professionally as Michael Seater, is a Canadian actor, writer, director and producer.He is most known for his lead role as Derek in the popular Canadian sitcom Life with Derek.In contrast, any discussions about beauty at my Sunday brunch outings involved sharing hair care tips and recommending moisturizing conditioners.Seater began acting in the late 1990s and appeared in the short films Night of the Living and The Stone Skipper, and had minor roles in the direct-to-video film Future Fear and the made-for-television films Rescuers: Stories of Courage: Two Couples, Vanished Without a Trace, On Thin Ice, Dirty Pictures, Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life, the Hanukkah-themed Jenny and the Queen of Light, as well as in episodes of several television series, including The Zack Files.
Seater then appeared in the recurring role of Owen on the series Re Genesis, which ended after its fourth season.
Seater garnered wider public recognition for his role as Derek Venturi on the popular Canadian family sitcom, Life with Derek, which was a hit with teens.
He also plays the recurring role of murderer and criminal mastermind James Gillies in the Canadian series Murdoch Mysteries.
Seater also recently had a recurring role on the Canadian TV series Bomb Girls.
