Sophia Bush plays a detective on Chicago P.D., and during her run on the successful NBC show she has met her share of police officers. During last season’s finale, Erin Lindsay (Bush) was not in a very good place, as she handed over her badge to Voight (Jason Beghe) after harboring guilt over a recent tragedy (this is a spoiler free post!).
Although one would assume that Lindsay’s back to law enforcement will be a rocky one, she’s much too determined a person to let life’s challenges overtake her spirit. Sophia Bush attended NBC’s Summer Press tour to promote Chicago P.D., and during the interview I asked her if she had any idea how any police officer can get gratification from such a highly stressful and exacting job:
“There’s something I think that’s a through line for anyone who works in the public service sector. And now that we work with police, we work with firefighters, we work with so many people in the medical space with (Chicago Med) coming into Chicago as well. All of these people have incredibly strenuous, incredibly taxing – almost unbearable at times – careers. But when they save somebody, it makes everything (else) worth it to them.
When they’ve been able to stop something catastrophic from happening in a community, to a family, to a patient, to a citizen – it defines their whole existence. And to interact with so many people so regularly that are so shockingly selfless. When you see it up close and personal the way that we do. It’s humbling, and it makes us really want to do our jobs well because we want to do justice to the people whose stories we’re telling.”

#FashionFriday @mrselfportrait by day & @smythejackets by night. I wore @ismellgreat #wildhoney with both! ? I had a blast talking all things #ChicagoPD at #TCA15, and was so honored to present grants to film schools and students with the Hollywood Foreign Press at their dinner.
