Wilson Jermaine Heredia: (on why RENT has a profound effect on many different audiences) I think it's because it's about timeless universal themes encompassing real people. These people in the film were all Jonathan's friends. He wrote about his life, he wrote about his friends, his environment. Some of these things happened, and I think people identify with ... if you don't identify with the drag queen you'll identify with Collins' character, if not with Collins's character, you'll identify with Roger. If not Roger, Mimi. There's something in this film for everyone.
Wilson Jermaine Heredia: (when asked about influential people in his career) It may be a cliché, but it would have to say Michael Greif and Jonathan Larson. They definitely inspired me and through example allowed me to learn what this business was about, and also I really have to say ... Jesse [L. Martin], seriously. He really helps me up my game and never let me drop the ball. I learned so much working with this man.
