Chicago PDs Tracy Spiridakos opens up about the UptonRuzek romance

first_img I understand you’re a gamer. Are you playing anything right now?I have a PlayStation 4, and I just finished playing God of War. I’m obsessed with all things God of War, and Uncharted. I love all of the Uncharteds. It’s so good.Are there other ways technology plays a role in your life?We are all attached to our phones in such a big way. I try to put it down and limit my time on it so I can be more present when I’m sitting down. But I will say the PlayStation has been my favorite tool for connecting, especially with my brothers — they live in Canada, in Winnipeg. We gear up for the weekend and get a bunch of our friends together. We log on and put our headsets on and do a raid on a Saturday night on Destiny. It’s just one of my favorite ways to stay connected. And even if it’s just me and one of my brothers, we’ll start talking. How’s your day going? How are you? What’s going on at home? We can get into all that while we go through the different worlds of Destiny.

They have that familiar Law & Order procedural feel, with more exploring of characters’ emotions and relationships. And that combination is key to Chicago P.D. as the sixth season hurtles towards its climax.In this Wednesday’s penultimate episode of the season, Detective Hailey Upton and Officer Adam Ruzek roll up on a crime in progress and find themselves caught in a full-on gun fight. The badass Upton even hood-slides across her car. But its not the flying bullets that have fans on the edge of their seats — it’s the secret romance between Upton and Rezek. Comment I got to talk by phone with Tracy Spiridakos, who plays the smart and charismatic Det. Upton in the NBC show. The Canadian actress opened up about the challenges of portraying a detective, the pride she feels playing a strong woman who’s allowed to be vulnerable, what’s going on with Officer Ruzek and how the PlayStation 4 is her go-to device for staying connected with friends and family.Q: What does it mean for you to play the forthright Hailey?Spiridakos: It’s awesome. It’s important to portray all sides of a woman, and what I find appealing about Hailey is yes, she has this unapologetic feature, but she’s also very vulnerable and she’ll show that. She’s a badass, but you’ll see her cry. That combination makes her a complete person.How has playing Hailey pushed you as an actress?I’ve learned so much from all of my castmates, just watching how they react to things, their processes and how everyone works. With Hailey, one of my favorite things is her unapologetic nature. She has a very strong moral code. She doesn’t care if you like what she has to say or not, she’s just going to say it.How have fans reacted to the surprise Upton/Ruzek romance?It’s been either really positive or really not. There are a lot of fans who were really invested in [Kim] Burges and Ruzek’s relationship, and I totally get that. But there are other fans who were excited about Upton and Ruzek. There’s no in the middle. Patty [Patrick Flueger], who plays Ruzek, is one of my favorite people on the planet, so it’s been really fun getting to work with him on everything.How are you trained on police protocol and details like carrying a gun, or the way a detective might stand?We have this amazing human being named Brian Luce, he’s our tech advisor on the show and a police officer. He helps us with everything: how we stand, how we hold the gun, how to clear a room. What you’re thinking about in an interview, what you’re thinking about when you walk into a room. He really helps us get into the headspace and make it authentic.last_img read more

Election Commission showcauses Dilip Ghosh

first_imgKolkata: The Election Commission (EC) has served a show-cause notice to BJP state president Dilip Ghosh for his controversial remarks regarding the Commission itself.The office of the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) in the state has sought a clarification as to why he made such an obnoxious comment regarding the EC. The remarks came from Ghosh two days ago after the election personnel removed a banner that was allegedly carrying his photograph and Ram Navami greetings. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataWhile talking to a private television channel, Ghosh said he would have taken off the trousers of the election personnel who had dared to remove the banner, had he been present there at the spot. The CEO office has taken a strong objection to Ghosh’s remarks. According to a senior official at the CEO office, Ghosh’s statements were derogatory in nature and hence, he has been asked to clarify why he made such a statement. Ghosh had allegedly used Ram Navami greetings and posters during his election rally flouting the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) set up by the Election Commission of India. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe state has once again witnessed processions where weapons were brandished during the Ram Navami celebrations this year. After his controversial remarks, Ghosh had, however, claimed that he did not flout any MCC violation by putting a banner greeting people on the occasion of Ram Navami. He went ahead and added that he is entitled to put out a banner as he has been a local MLA. The Commission, however, seems unmoved and has show-caused him. The CEO office wanted to know from Ghosh if he has conducted an election rally using various posters of Ram Navami or if any weapons were used during the rally. Earlier, Ghosh was seen displaying swords and maces during Ram Navami celebrations in Kharagpur. The Kolkata Police along with its state counterpart said no political, apolitical and religious organisations have been allowed to carry out rallies with arms. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, while addressing a rally in Siliguri, criticised the BJP for taking out armed rallies and said they were trying to “sell religion” for political advantage. “Whose throat do you want to slit with swords? Whose head do you want to smash with the mace,” she had questioned while addressing a rally in favour of party’s Darjeeling Lok Sabha seat candidate Amar Singh Rai.last_img read more
