    I would love to be an extra in Chicago Fire or PD, would you consider someone from out of state? I live in Montana, I’m sure this is a problem. I’m a huge fan of both shows. I’m a certified nurse assistant.

    I would love to be an extra on CPD or Chicago Fire . I have no experience in acting at all. I also live in NJ problem I’m sure. But I’ve been a huge fan since the show started. Absolutely love them. Is there any way you would consider a out of state person. I am retired and have nothing but free time. I am about 4 months from turning 60 but look younger. Please consider for one of your best fans.

While Boden is at the firehouse I dies but Boden misses the call because he’s fighting fires Boden goes to hospital to see me but I died and they already taken me to the morgue Biden insisted that he sees her. He has a full BREAKDOWN in the morgue till the doctors sedate him then they find out that he has had a heart attack for grieving over me…the team rally around him handling my funeral for him while he sits in a weak chair But with his strength and love and wording over the hose. From his hospital bed he still Swears To protect the house. After a weak he returns to work t his rightful place.
