Jasmin has said:
I grew up in Springfield, Oregon, which is primarily Caucasian. I was raised by my white mom by herself. She did a wonderful job, but it wasn’t really until I moved to LA that I realized I didn’t even identify with my blackness. And that’s been a whole part of my acting journey and my internal journey up until right now, even. I’m still understanding more about who I am.

Arthur was born in Iowa, the son of Zenas Imla Brown and Lora Amanda McClintic. Martha was born in Indiana, the daughter of William Phillip Rarey and Mary Estelle Swain.
