NBC hosted it’s first virtual ‘One Chicago’ Day event and all of our faves were in attendance. The cast of Chicago PD, Chicago Med and Chicago Fire gave us an exclusive look at what we could expect on their new seasons and how the pandemic has played a major role in it. The real question is how many cast members could actually be first responders in today’s pandemic?
Chicago Fire’s Miranda Rae Mayo kept it all the way real when we asked her.
“The first part of the pandemic I really got into my head a lot and there was a lot of anxiety and stressing about the what ifs and first responders they just go. You know what I mean,” Mayo said. “They just show up. Um, I don’t think that I have what it takes to be a first responder.”
Her costar Taylor Kinney didn’t really give us a yes or no…
“They’re the ones on the front line, they’re the ones putting themselves in danger,” Kinney said. “They’re also the ones who can’t see loved ones like we can so I think that would be my only… that would be a big downside.”
As far as the rest of the cast from each show, they seemed to be very enthusiastic about the possibility of being first responders in real life.
“I thought your question was given what you know now could you take that knowledge and go be a first responder and I was going to say n… absolutely,” Chicago Med’s Nick Gehlfuss joked.
Chicago PD’s LaRoyce Hawkins said he’d also keep the same energy if he had chosen criminal justice as his path.
