Ever since Sylvie Brett joined Firehouse 51 throughout Season three, we have seen her play a personality on the NBC drama who’s variety, who is sweet to her pals however who usually appears to be surrounded by people who find themselves profiting from her in a roundabout way. This most not too long ago has come within the type of her hometown buddy Hope and the physician she goes on a date with who is definitely married. Tonight’s episode was a giant fall finale occasion episode, and we caught up with Kara Kilmer, who performs Brett, at One Chicago Day, to ask her what it’s about her character that causes her to be surrounded by the Hopes of the world. Here is what she mentioned:
This final episode, I really feel like articulated it the very best in that when she goes out with this physician and it would not even happen to her to be suspicious in any manner. As a result of she simply needs to consider the very best about [people], take folks at face worth. And I feel , we have all had expertise with lifelong pals or folks that we have been pals with ceaselessly, and you continue to wish to “hope” the very best, no pun meant.
Over the previous few episodes, it is turn into pretty clear that Hope is a nasty egg.

That is what the subsequent portion of Chicago Fireplace Season 6 will discover. In response to Sylvie,
I feel even on one other degree, one thing that I feel folks will see this season for Brett, she’s actually holding on to the issues that matter to her, however she is basically departing from her hometown expectations. So this season is basically about her coming into her personal. She’s having to be confronted with, ‘What do I actually worth, what do I wish to preserve in my life? What do I wish to go forward and shed off?’ And I feel Hope is the system that is actually articulating that.
Nonetheless, even though Hope triggered a number of chaos, getting Stella Kidd transferred and bringing in a extremely annoying new firefighter for a quick interval, each Kara Kilmer and Miranda Ray Mayo, who performs Kidd, will miss working with Eloise Mumford, who has performed Hope on the present. Per Kilmer,
What’s nice is that we beloved working with Eloise Mumford. She’s acquired her freckled, strawberry shortcake, angel face. You wish to pinch her cheeks, then you definately wish to slap her.
