Jake Allyn Reveals 'The Quad' Behind-The-Scene Secrets!

Plus, why he knew the BET series was going to be a major success.

It didn’t take Jake Allyn long to realize BET’s drama ‘The Quad’ was going to be a hit!

The Texas born actor who plays Bojohn Folsom, the school’s first white starting quarterback in the critically acclaimed series, revealed to OKMagazine.com exclusively that he knew the show was going to a success as soon as he filmed the pilot.

“I remember one scene when Bo was in the library at this school he doesn’t want to be in and he’s looking at all these black and white photographs on the wall and it’s showing the history of historically black colleges and showing how far back these schools go and how rich the history and culture is,” he said. “You could feel when we were shooting it that they were really getting the small town Texas kid taking that in.”

Allyn added, “That was one of the first times, at least me that that I thought ‘oh this is going to be a lot bigger and more important and meaningful than a college soap.”

Be sure to tune in to Season 2 finale of The Quad tonight at 10pm/9c on BET!
