When asked what she found most challenging about working on “Chicago PD” in 2017, Sophia Bush explained, “Honestly, it’s starting to become a little bit of a quality of life thing” (via YouTube). She went on to say that as an adult of 33, she looked back on her early career and saw an actor just starting out who was willing, even eager, to endure things like no sleep, coffee instead of meals, and grueling filming schedules. “And now I’m an adult and I think I have different and deeper connections to my family and to my closest friends and I live 10 months a year away from those people and work 16 hours a day,” Bush said.
Bush added that she appreciated having the dream job of being a full-time actress on a hit television series. But she said spending hours photographing outdoors in minus 25 temperatures when she had pneumonia was still no walk in the park. And while Bush’s eventual exit from the show hinged on her allegations of on-set harassment from co-star Jason Beghe (via Deadline), her main complaints at the time of the aforementioned interview about the filming of “Chicago PD” had to do with nasty Chi- Town weather, long hours, and a serious lack of contact with family and friends.
