An all-new episode of Chicago P.D.
aired last night on NBC. The series, police procedural drama, which is a spinoff of Chicago Fire
, follows the patrol officers and Intelligence Unit who work at the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department, led by Detective Segergeant Henry "Hank" Voight, played by Jason Beghe. Jesse Lee Soffer plays the role of Detective Jay Halstead in the series.
Beghe and Soffer recently talked to reporters during a junket promoting the show where they teased about romance for their characters and more.
Be sure to check out our portion of the video interview below.
Beghe talked about the possibility of Voight having a love interest this season. He told SciFi Vision that he doesn’t think it will happen. “I can tell you, quite honestly, that stuff comes up from time to time, but I've always felt that Voight, [and] it seems to be changing a little bit, but in my understanding of the character, he really is still kind of devoted to his dead wife. I think it's changing to some degree, but he's always, from my viewpoint, felt still married, and not out of any kind of ethics or, you know, feeling about that, it's just the way he fell in love with her. He’s not a guy who is vulnerable to temptations that others are. He’s fairly rooted in the present time.”
He continued on, telling journalists “I think the truth is his heart and focus is consumed with Chicago and keeping it safe. I suspect, there may be a time where he will, you know, get hit by bow and arrow, but maybe not. You know, let's see. A lot of us think about those things a lot, and as I understand playing Voight, that's not something that he's consumed with. Most of us think about that a lot, and he does not, which I find is an interesting part of him, and it adds to a lot of who he is, because it's rare to find a person like that. It's a conscious choice, as I tried to create the guy, but we're all vulnerable to [it].”
