Chicago P.D. star Tracy Spiridakos (Upton) had an early birthday celebration this week and showed fans what she’s been up to. 

How to Watch

Watch Chicago P.D. Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

On February 15, the actress took to her official Instagram page to share some sweet photos from the lunch, which was thrown by costar Marina Squerciati (Burgess) and attended by Amy Morton (Platt). 

The first snapshot shows Spiradakos holding up some food towards the camera. The second shows her smiling while holding up a drink and giving “cheers” to the pals with her. Then, we catch a glimpse of Squerciati and Morton taking a selfie.

The next post is a zoomed-out photo of all four women smiling up to the camera, looking like they’re having a great time. Spridakos puts an arm around her friend in the next picture before we get another adorable group selfie. And finally, Spiradakos and Squerciati pose together while visiting The Art Institute of Chicago.

“Early birthday celebrations with these beauties 🥳 Thank you @marinasqu for organizing ️ and @artinstitutechi for being fabulous as always and @eatatandros for having us! The food was delicious,” she gushed in the caption.

Happy early birthday, Tracy!

Tracy Spiridakos has been posting a lot to Instagram lately. On February 6, she made another post that shows some behind-the-scenes action of her beloved former co-star Jesse Lee Soffer during his directorial debut on Chicago P.D. Soffer is set to direct Season 10, Episode 16 of the show. 

In the post, she shares a sweet selfie of themselves in a car. We then catch a glimpse of Soffer closely focusing on a piece of production equipment before we see a post of him talking to some people on set while sitting behind more large equipment. Then, Soffer poses with someone on set with a thermos in hand, bundled up in winter clothing.


“Director Jesse made his debut, and he killed it you guys! 👏🏼👏🏼 We are all so proud,” an adoring Spiridakos captioned the post, proud as can be. “DIRECTOR JESSE!!” NBC’s official One Chicago Instagram page commented in support. “yeahhhh!!” Chicago Fire star Daniel Kyri chimed in after commenting some heart eye emojis.
