Chicago P. D. Season 8 Cast: Real-Life Partners And Lifestyles

Chicago P. D. Season 8 Cast: Real-Life Partners And Lifestyles

Nov 25, 2020Zhenia Lis

What made Jason Beghe's co-stars complain about him? Who of the cast prefers dating Chicago Franchise co-stars? And who is rumored to have a child with their co-star from Chicago P. D.? It’s time to reveal all about the Chicago PD cast.

JASON BEGHE AS HENRY "HANK" VOIGHT 

Have you ever wondered about Voight's raspy voice? It’s not common knowledge, but in 1991, Jason was intubated after a near-fatal car accident - and that’s what caused that gravelled tone! On another note, you’d probably NOT want to infuriate Voight, right?

Well, in one way at least, the actor shares a similarity with his character... In 2011, fellow cast members filed complaints of “anger issues” against Beghe. The actor has apologized for his on-set behavior, and it seems is currently keeping his emotions in check.

So, how about his love life? Sadly, he and his wife of 20 years, Angeline, finalized their split last year. When the couple first filed in 2017, the second round of reports surfaced about his anger issues. So, who knows, maybe that had something to do with their split?

In any case, some good news! They’re sharing joint legal and physical custody of their sons, Bix and Bear. However, things seem a bit awkward, because the court forbade them to speak disparagingly of the other parent in front of their kids. Ouch - seems tense!

Regarding Jason’s current relationship status, the fact that he’s not on social media doesn’t help... But it would appear that he’s single. On a different topic, can you guess how the 60-year old actor stays in shape? He plays soccer and jumps on the trampoline on his ranch with his sons.

But - wait for it - he also plants trees, mends fences, and bales hay—activities he calls gardening. He told Muscle and Fitness: “Gardening is badass, man! It’s not a half-hour workout. It’s a full day. It’s rough and tough.” So, anybody wants to get a ranch and give it a try now?

TRACY SPIRIDAKOS AS HAILEY UPTON 

Wondering whether Tracy and her character Hailey are at all alike in real life? I’ve got the answer for you! And it’s a definite - “no”. In real life, Spiridakos says she’s a tomboy who loves to make people laugh. Furthermore, she’s so environmentally conscious, she brings her own water bottle and coffee tumbler to the set!

She says she was shocked by how badly plastics pollute waterways when she went scuba diving off the coast of an Indonesian island - nine years ago. So, wanna hear what she does to manage her stress? “I really unwind when I’m playing video games. I like to sit down, have a glass of wine and become part of another realm, another story”, she told Knockturnal.

Now for her love life. To put it mildly, it’s pretty complicated, but here’s the short version, OK. In 2012, she dated her co-star from The Boy She Met Online - Jon Cor. They were together for a few years and then announced their engagement. But, sadly, called it quits shortly after. We’re not sure why!

Currently, it would appear she’s with the singer, songwriter and film producer, Justin Ruane. The details are a bit murky, and we’re actually using his IG posts as proof. For one, they both often post pics where they’re posing with the same dog, Nala. Like this one by Tracy, and this one by Justin. Since they haven’t confirmed anything, it’s up in the air, though. 

JESSE LEE SOFFER AS JAY HALSTEAD 

Before we get to his dating life, let’s check out this man-crush and get an idea of what he’s like in real life. Since he’s very private about his life in general, Insta is the only actual source! And from that, we gather he’s got a great sense of humor, and loves a nice round of golf.

A recent caption read: “Some people have inquired about my health and well being. I get questions daily like “Jesse, are you alive?” I can confirm. Yes, I am alive. I am alive and well.” And then… it seems like he’s really close to both his Mom and his two sisters, calling himself an “overprotective brother”.

So, does he have a significant other to protect? First, let’s just say: his character, Halstead, would probably benefit from separating the job from the personal. And Jesse might be wise to follow the same advice. It’s pretty well-known that he and his Chicago P. D. co-star, Sophia Bush, dated for over two years before parting ways in 2016.

Great news: they’re still good friends. Then, he also dated the Chicago Med star, Torrey Devito, for about a year until they separated last summer. Keeping it in the same franchise, it seems! At present, it doesn’t seem like he’s dating anyone, although we can’t confirm for sure.

MARINA SQUERCIATI AS KIM BURGESS 

This actress’s private life is somewhat of a mystery, so understandably everyone has their own opinions about her romantic relationships. Let’s start with what we know for sure. Which is, she’s a proud mom to a baby girl! Her daughter was in 2017, and while she’s notoriously private, when it came to this momentous occasion, she announced it via Twitter and Insta.

In her off time, she enjoys yoga with her kid and her little friend. At present, she’s married to Eli Kay-Oliphant, an attorney, and they were also college sweethearts. But the real mystery is: who’s the father? One possibility that’s been mentioned, is Patrick Flueger.

Knowing that she plays Burgess on the show, and he Ruzek, you’ll remember that many fans shipped “Burzek”! They had great on-screen chemistry. But the real reason for the speculations was a former Insta post that left everyone confused.

The caption read “Burzek and our baguette baby” - and fans still aren’t sure whether it hinted at onscreen childbirth, or maybe the real-life one! Whoever the father is, let's just acknowledge that Marina looks really happy in her role as a mother.

In any case, she’s admitted that she had a tough pregnancy and that it was challenging to get back in shape after the birth. "Because I was fit beforehand, I thought I would just bounce back. I’d be like, 'I can get back to the gym… I don’t think I went back until eight months [after]." Well, it seems she succeeded, because she is looking as good as ever today!

PATRICK JOHN FLUEGER AS ADAM RUZEK

Did you know that Patrick is not only an actor but also a musician? Yeah, he sings and plays the guitar - and was the lead singer for a band called Sleeper 7. In his private time, Flueger is adventurous and loves travelling. To relax, he enjoys watching the NBC comedy, Superstore, and he’s also a fan of The Mandalorian.

But wait, let’s check out his dating life next! Flueger’s character’s personal life has been tumultuous if you count the failed relationships. Does the actor share a similar fate in real life? Pretty much! He dated two Hollywood stars, Carly Pope, and Briana Evigan. He and Carly were an item from 2005 and split after three years. Next, he followed a similar pattern with Briana.

They were together for a few years before he broke up with her. You’ve already heard that many believe Patrick and Marina Squerciati are not only dating in real life but that he's also a father to her child. Whichever the case, it’s safe to say they’re not together now. Currently, it looks like Flueger found love with the actress and model, Reem Amara.

The two’s photos on their respective IG pages suggest they’re very close. For example, she recently wrote a throwback post on a trip to Greece: “Not travelling with you this summer has left me parched.” And also captioned this photo with: “you're something else - I love doing this life thing with you”. They look so happy together.

LAROYCE HAWKINS AS KEVIN ATWATER 

What's missing in his character Atwater's life is well, a life outside of the Unit! The same can’t be said of LaRoyce, who’s an actor, stand-up comic, spoken word artist,  a musician.  When he’s not working, he’s giving back to the community. He’s mentored and spoken in schools around the Chicago area and supports various charities.

For one, he’s campaigning to help clean up his hometown of Harvey, and he wants to inspire others to overcome adversity. “It’s my assignment, in my humble opinion, to counter as much of that as I can. That’s what ‘Be Powerful’ is here for – to add relief to spaces that need it.” Impressive indeed.

On the dating front, we know little to nothing about his love life, yet it appears he’s not married. Who can blame him with such a busy schedule? But he does have a beautiful son! LaRoyce looks like a proud dad, as he often posts pictures of him and his stylish baby on Insta. About the mother? No idea! The actor hasn't said a thing.

AMY MORTON AS TRUDY PRATT 

Who certainly deserves an honorable mention as one of our favorite deadpan characters. In reality, Morton is married to Rob Milburn, a theatrical sound designer. These two have known each other for nearly 40 years! When they first met, though, it certainly wasn't love-at-first-sight.

According to her, she initially disliked him because she thought he was arrogant as hell! Clearly, she got over her misgivings, since they eventually became a couple, and tied the knot during a tough period when she lost her parents. After more than 20 years of marriage, they look happy! The actress is very private about her personal life.

The fact that she doesn’t maintain a social media presence also means we’re left in the dark about other details pertaining to her personal life. There is one cool detail, though! Two of Morton’s best friends were the original Bosom Buddies, Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari. According to Taddlr, they remain to be two of her best friends, decades after the show went off the air.

SOPHIA BUSH AS ERIN LINDSAY 

Though the actress left the show at the end of the fifth season, it hasn’t stopped fans from hoping she’ll return one day. One midseason cliffhanger from Season 7 intensified those feelings. Without further ado, here’s the scoop on Sophia’s love life. Back in 2005, she dated and married her co-star from One Tree Hill, Chad Michael Murray.

Unfortunately, their marriage ended up after a brief five months. Years later, in 2012, Bush dated Google executive, Dan Fredinburg, for about a year. Tragically, the 33-year old Dan was one of the first casualties. of a severe earthquake that hit Nepal in 2013 On Instagram, she’s called him one of the great loves of her life.

Back then, she expressed her grief, saying: "Today I find myself attempting to pick up the pieces of my heart that have broken into such tiny shards, I'll never likely find them all.” As you already learned, she was involved with her colleague Jesse Lee from 2014 to 2015.

News alert! She was recently seen smooching a new love interest, Grant Hughes, who according to his Instagram account, is founder of FocusMotion Health. The couple was spotted holding hands and sharing a meal in Malibu. You’ll be the first to know if we learn more!
