"I learned a lot from that role and I learned a lot from ‘The Lion King' itself. It's a very communal experience because the show is 52 cast members," Segers said about the differences that arise with so many coworkers. "But at the end of the day we all come together to put this product on. And there is very little to none in respect to animosity while on stage, and I owe ‘The Lion King' a huge debt of gratitude."
Segers is now playing the role of Mason in Disney's "Pair of Kings" on television. It took him a while to finally commit to acting, and he went through an off time in New York City while trying to decide what it was that he wanted to do. While visiting in New Zealand his old agent told him about a role that Segers would have been perfect for, and he told Segers to go ahead and send in a tape to Disney. Segers did the tape, sent it off, and when he arrived back in New York; he had over twenty messages from Disney. Segers went out to Los Angeles and landed the job.
On his incredible experiences, Segers said, "It's all in an effort to not be Joe Pump. To not just settle for anything."
