Back in October, Deadline reported Stella Maeve (Golden Boy) had been cast as an 18 year old escort, named Nadia, who is suffering harsh withdrawals from an addiction to heroin. Maeve’s role will be recurring on the midseason drama. She has shared photos of her time with some cast members via her Instagram.
Another report via Deadline from earlier this month states that Sydney T. Poitier (Kendra; Veronica Mars) has been cast for a multiple episode arc with “an option to become a regular”. Poitier will be playing a new detective and her role will crossover on ‘Chicago Fire.’
This isn't the first time Poitier will be carrying a badge. In "I Ka Wa Mamua (In a Time Past)" (Season 3, episode 6) on 'Hawaii Five-0,' she played Danny Williams' (Scott Caan) partner, Grace Tilwell, who was killed before the attacks on September 11, 2001.
‘Chicago PD’ premieres Wednesday, January 8 at 10/9c on NBC.
