Chicago PD and Chicago Fire are teaming up for yet another exciting crossover!

On Wednesday, Feb. 20th, Intelligence and Firehouse 51 will work together after a string of robberies lead to a building fire.

However, Tracy Spiridakos, who plays Hailey Upton, revealed that the situation might get more personal when Voight suspects a firefighter may be involved.

But aside from dosing out justice and catching bad guys, Upton’s had a pretty tough season; she’s dealt with personal childhood trauma, falling hard for a co-worker, and getting abducted.

When we spoke to Spiridakos, she not only dished about the upcoming crossover, but also elaborated more about the brewing love triangle, the state of her relationship with Burgess, and even gave us some insight about Upton’s unique relationship with Halstead.

She also addressed the #Burzek fandom who have shown a bit of animosity towards her character.

And most importantly, she told us about her love for deep dish pizza.

Check out the interview below — you won’t regret it.

We have to address Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 14. Upton and Burgess were abducted, and it was one of a few times where the two ladies shared a really powerful scene together. Tell me about that. How did that feel?

It was great. We got to do some stuff in Season 5, the one where we’re PIs both of us approached, but this one was especially intense due to not only being abducted but also Burgess finding out about Ruzek at the beginning of the episode and the tension that came with that.

But I really like how at the end, they’re bonded beyond anything they’ve ever been and they’re stronger together which is really cool!

Save Yourself - Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 14

Yeah, I love how Burgess and Upton handled their “guy drama.” Rarely do shows allow two grown women to handle something in such a mature fashion. Why was that so important for Chicago PD and specifically, for these two characters?

I think it’s important to just show exactly what you just said that two women can have a conversation about something that’s going on like that and can walk away from that and just be like “things happen, and I understand where you’re coming from and thanks for talking to me about it and we’re good.”

After what they went through as characters in being abducted and not knowing when Burgess walks in and sees Upton tied up and bleeding and not knowing what happened to her and if she was going to survive or what was going on, I think you get sort of stronger bonded going through something like that.

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on ‘One Tree Hill’ After Divorce

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on 'One Tree Hill' After Divorce

Sophia Bush may have just gotten married, but she’s reflecting on a past, high-profile relationship on the Drama Queens podcast.

Specifically, her marriage and divorce from One Tree Hill co-star, Chad Michael Murray. 

While chatting with her former co-stars, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton—who are all too familiar with what went down between Biush and Murray—the actress opened up about the hardships of having to work on set after the couple divorced in 2006. They got engaged in 2004 and married in 2005. 

In fact, Bush said it was even more difficult because their characters, Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott, started dating around the same time their relationship was hitting a rough patch that it would never bounce back from. 

“Not for nothing, you were going through a breakup with the person that you were playing a romance opposite of,” Joy Lenz said. 

“And regardless of what all those circumstances were, that’s incredibly difficult — emotionally to be able to be vulnerable and be there in that moment. There’s lots of actors who have done that — who’ve done movies and TV shows and things, they date their costar or whatever, it doesn’t work out. But the fact that you were able to just be that raw and open and vulnerable, it’s a real credit to you as an artist.  You put your art in front of everybody and just were like, ‘Look, this is it. I’m just sharing my heart and here we are’. I thought it was really beautiful,” she said. 

Bush gave a very mature answer, explaining that regardless of what was going on in her personal life, she prioritized the show and the character that resonated with so many young women.

“People can call it whatever they want. They can say it’s strength, they can say it’s pride, they can say its professionalism — you can put a positive or a negative skew on I, but I was always going to put Brooke Davis ahead of everybody and everything else. Nothing mattered to me but being honest for her,” she explained.

The actress, who recently wed Grant Hughes in a stunning and poignant Oklahoma wedding, previously refused to speak about her marriage to Murray as she didn’t want her career to be defined by a relationship. 

 “I refuse to let that one relationship define me, which is why I’ve done my best to avoid discussing it for 10 years,” she began, while acknowledging that it was a “massive event” in her life. 

She added: “The trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who’d been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up.”

 
Bush remained on OTH for the show’s full nine-season duration, which wrapped in 2012. Meanwhile, Murray exited the teen drama in season 6. He has since started a family with Crackle co-star Sarah Roemer. The duo married in 2015 and share two children.
