The annual One Chicago Day was held on Monday, October 7, 2019, and it did not disappoint, as cast members from Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD came out to celebrate their new seasons. We’ve got the scoop on Monday’s festivities, including who was there, what was said, & much more!
First thing’s first: What is NBC’s #OneChicago Day?
For those that don’t know, NBC hosts an event called #OneChicago Day, which brings together cast members from all 3 shows: Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD. They conduct interviews, do press photos, and even play some fun games or take cool candids.
The event was hosted a bit later than usual this year, as it’s usually held prior to airing the new seasons. This year’s day was well planned though, as NBC also released the trailer for the #OneChicago crossover special on the heels of the event.
So, who attended this year’s #OneChicago Day?
In attendance from Chicago Med were: Torrey DeVitto, Nick Gehlfuss, Brian Tee, Yaya DaCosta, S. Epatha Merkerson, Oliver Platt, Marlyne Barrett, and Dominic Rains.
Representing Chicago Fire were: Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Eamonn Walker, Miranda Rae Mayo, Kara Killmer, Annie Ilonzeh, David Eigenberg, Christian Stolte, and Joe Minoso.
Last but certainly not least, for Chicago PD were: Jason Beghe, Jesse Lee Soffer, Tracy Spiridakos, Marina Squerciati, Patrick John Flueger, LaRoyce Hawkins, Lisseth Chavez, and Amy Morton.
The casts were interviewed by various media outlets, from news crews to podcasts; not to mention individual entertainment journalists and TV buzz sites. Social media has been filled with tweets of “ship sightings” and posts about Q&A sessions that were conducted.
If you’re wondering what some cast members are wearing, they are in fact dressed in their show “uniforms.” For Med, that means maroon or black scrubs with blue or gray jackets; Fire insists upon navy jackets with the CFD logo; whereas PD‘s “officers” catch a break in “plain clothes.”
What went down at #OneChicago Day 2019?
Aside from all the interviews, cast members posed alongside their respective show’s backdrops, and took selfies with reporters for Instagram Stories. Some of the cast even posted their own photos for Instagram – check out Marina Squerciati’s adorable trio photograph below:
Attendees got in on the fun when the casts of Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD did live demonstrations of skills from their shows. Chicago Fire‘s David Eigenberg, Joe Minoso, and Miranda Rae Mayo showed how to do a fireman’s carry out of a room.
Meanwhile, Chicago Med‘s Nick Gehlfuss and Brian Tee showed off their CPR and defibrillator skills; and Chicago PD‘s Marina Squerciati, LaRoyce Hawkins, along with technical advisor Brian Luce discussed proper police procedures.
And yes, the cast even tried out each other’s demos – you can see Marina in some scrubs and David assisting the “doctors” in the photo gallery below.
Some cast members also played a “not so newlywed” game with NBC’s Chicago TODAY. On hand for that were Chicago Med‘s Torrey DeVitto and Nick Gehlfuss (#Manstead), Chicago PD’s Tracy Spiridakos and Jesse Lee Soffer (#Upstead), as well as Chicago Fire‘s David Eigenberg and Joe Minoso.
