‘Chicago Med’ Cast Members Once Became Real-Life First Responders On Set
It’s one thing to play a first responder and an entirely different thing to be trained as one. However, during filming for a previous episode of “Chicago Med,” several of the medical drama’s cast members became real-life heroes when they had to evacuate a building.
Earlier this season, the cast and crew of “Chicago Med” were working on filming for the episode, “Just as a Snake Sheds Its Skin.” At one point, actor Edward Freemon, who plays one of the transportation team members at Gaffney Medical, smelled smoke.
Freemon, alongside two other “Chicago Med” actors, Pauli Blanco and Chris Sammarco, departed the set in search of the smoke. Not far away, the fictional first responders found an apartment building had caught on fire.
Together, they conducted a search of the building, checking each unit to make sure everyone got out safely. And it was a good thing they were there, too. Amid their search, they came across two elderly women who needed help exiting the building.
Pauli Blanco spoke about the experience with Wolf Entertainment.
“The taste and the smell…It was almost mesmerizing. I’m getting choked up,” he admitted. “The right people were there at the right time. Somebody put us there. Something put us there.”
