When you catch Chicago PD, do you have a moment where you see Jay Halstead’s ex-girlfriend and go “I’ve seen her somewhere”?

That is understandable, Outsiders.

Let’s see if we can crack this situation open with some help from Looper.

Anabelle Acosta plays Camila Vega and she’s had some previous appearances on the NBC crime drama.

They came in 2017 and 2018. Vega didn’t realize Jay was a cop. That changed, though, while Halstead was undercover as both formed a strong connection on Chicago PD.

Well, Halstead had his undercover status busted and it was during a drug investigation that involved Vega’s brother. Well, she also was part of it and got arrested, too.

Acosta has appeared in other shows, too. Among them are Breaking In, Supernatural, Quantico, and Ballers.

But Chicago PD continues to be a place for her to appear as Vega. The drama is part of NBC’s One Chicago night of programs, which also includes Chicago Med and Chicago Fire. Catch Chicago PD on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central.

‘Chicago PD’ Continues To Play Out Storyline Involving Voight, Burgess

One of the major storylines following Chicago PD right now has to do with Intelligence Unit boss Hank Voight, played by Jason Beghe.

Voight has been taking the heat for killing Roy Walton. Now, Walton shot Officer Kim Burgess, played by Marina Squerciati. Voight decided to be the one that talks about it while Hailey Upton, played by Tracy Spiridakos, actually pulled the trigger.

Burgess now has a role in the fate of Upton and Voight.

There’s a catch. She does not know that both of them were involved in the killing of Walton.

It happened to be that Burgess’ injuries helped pave the road for this interesting storyline on Chicago PD.

See, Roy kidnapped and shot Burgess.

Now, Walton is dead. You will have to watch Chicago PD, Outsiders, to see how this is reconciled.

Squerciati Shares Photo Of Two Co-Stars In Appreciation on Instagram

But Squerciati is also looking out for her co-stars, too.

In a recent photo from her Instagram account, co-stars Patrick John Flueger and Spiridakos made an appearance.

Squerciati writes “Two of my favorite people” as the photo’s caption. Flueger plays Officer Adam Reznek.

Another actress who has been appearing on Chicago PD for some while is Sydney Tamiia Poitier. She plays Detective Mia Sumners.

If the last name looks familiar, then yes, she’s the daughter of actor Sydney Poitier and his wife, Joanna Shimkus.

Sydney Poitier would be a guest star in some TV series to get her acting career off the ground.

In 1998, Sydney was part of Free of Eden, a made-for-TV movie that starred Sidney Poitier.
