Chicago PD star Sophia Bush was over the moon about her character appearing on Chicago Fire.
TV fanatics were treated to a crossover between the aforementioned shows earlier this week. Although this certainly isn’t the first time Bush’s character has jumped to another series — Chicago PD did a crossover with Law & Order: SVU earlier this year — the actress loved the concept showrunners put together.
“They did a heart-wrenching and beautiful job with the script. It’s tough, it’s beautiful and it’s really something… I was excited to do it, because I don’t think it’s been done before. I just thought, ‘What an interesting idea and concept.’ Character-wise, it’s really fitting,” Sophia Bush recently told TV Line.
She added, “You hear from everyone on social media that Lindsay’s the female Severide, which I had joked about with our bosses. When they pitched the idea, I was like, ‘This is perfect, because he’s never met a woman like her.’ They can go toe-to-toe. I think the fans are really responding well to it.”
It’s obvious that Sophia Bush loves her job. The Inquisitr previously reported that the actress was more than a little thrilled to work alongside Law & Order: SVU alum Mariska Hargitay earlier this year.
“We have a case that we need a little bit of help with that began in New York City. And we’re now finding the M.O. in Chicago. SVU was investigating it when he was up there and now it’s on our hands,” Bush explained.
The actress continued, “To have Ice-T and Kelli Giddish come down to work with us, and to be going to work with Mariska Hargitay, I mean I feel like it’s my birthday.”
However, just because Sophia Bush has a role on a big television series doesn’t mean she’s perfect. The 31-year-old actress recently told Today that she’s learning to “embrace my body and own it for me.”
“I’ve spent so much time talking to women about, ‘Hey, I may be on TV and I may be photographed for magazines, but I don’t think I’m perfect. I don’t wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and go, ‘Hey, I’m amazing!’ That’s not how it is. I’m a women and it’s a struggle for all of us,” she said.
