An OG cast member as the Intelligence Unit's second-in-command, Dawson proved to be a fan favorite on the show with his defiant attitude. 

However, Dawson departed the unit in Season 6 after it was revealed that the character had been struggling with substance abuse. His last episode was the Season 7 premiere, titled "Doubt." There, Voight takes Dawson to rehabilitation center as the only one aware of his circumstances.

Following his P.D. exit in 2019, Seda wrote a reflective farewell on his X (formerly known as Twitter) account. "It’s been an honor portraying Det. Antonio Dawson in the One Chicago world. To my cast family, I’ll always treasure the time and stories we shared. To all you Chi-Hards out there, THANK YOU for being the best of fans! We’ll always have CHICAGO."

In a January interview with Us Weekly, Seda opened up about what his run on Chicago P.D. as Antonio Dawson meant to him.  

“It’s always with me. It was a great time working on Chicago shows. It was incredible, amazing cast. That whole universe is incredible. It was so unique. But it was so unique and to be a part of it from the beginning was really something special,” he told the outlet.

Fans also may recognize Seda from another NBC show, as he played Dr. Sam Velez on the sci-fi series La Brea. In an interview with Deadline, Seda discussed how playing Dawson on Chicago P.D. helped him prepare for other roles, no matter how different they may be. 

“I think the shows are so different,” he told the outlet. “Being part of something that is such an adventure, mystery, drama is exciting. I’m just glad to be a part of it. And yeah, maybe not in cop mode, but I think Dr. Sam will tend to want to help as many people as he can.”
