He is best known for his lead role as Derek in the popular Canadian sitcom Life with Derek.
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 said he thought he'd seen everything Leggat could do as an actress, but she kept surprising and impressing him with her performance.
"I don't think [she] had ever done something that was raw and indie like this, and her gutsiness in going forward was incredibly impressive and shows on camera," he said.
