What’s Sicily Sewell doing now? The Beginning vs. the future
One on One follows a single parent whose teenage daughter moves home with him when his ex-wife leaves for work.
Critics and fans praised the show. Five seasons were broadcast from September 3, 2001, through May 15, 2006.
The show featured great actors and actresses.
Sicily Sewell was a star. Four seasons as Breanna’s best friend Spirit Jones.
At 8, she began performing. She started on Sesame Street and starred in movies and TV shows like Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
Sewell later changed careers. Actress-turned-chef. She told The Shade Room on March 31, 2019.
Actress-turned-chef Sicily Sewell
Sewell had a 10-year acting career. On One on One and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, she had unforgettable moments.
Sewell was famous from One on One but didn’t realize her impact. Her character’s age helped her overcome her nerves.
She got to relive real-life experiences in the show. She starred with Angela Bassett, Whoopi Goldberg, and Taye Diggs in How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
Sewell learned a lot from outstanding stars. She became confident, worked hard, and “played the room.”
She learned her worth and pursued her goals. She did.
She married her five-year lover Chris Johnson on May 17, 2006. They had Madison in 2007 and Marlee in 2011.
Sewell didn’t want to act after having Madison. She pursued her passion, cooking.
She wanted to be a chef even as an actress. Even at Hollywood afterparties, she looked at cooks to see how they cooked rather than networking with other stars.
So she enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu’s culinary program. It was her best career move.
She joined the Los Angeles Times Test Kitchen after graduating. She then worked in food-related enterprises.
Sewell is descended from talented cooks. Her great-great-grandfather, Roe Duncan, passed along wonderful recipes.
Duncan cooked for a white Tennessee household in the 1800s. His eight daughters passed down his recipes to Sewell.
She used those recipes to create Pinky & Red’s in Berkeley, California, with her mother. Sewell also created The Sandwich Ministry and Food+People.
Now a chef, Sewell is open to acting if the opportunity arises.
