In a 2022 interview with Looper, Mayo opened up about joining Chicago Fire in Season 4 as Stella Kidd

"The crew was so loving and warm and welcoming and really wanted me to succeed," she said. "That's also what we saw onscreen with Stella Kidd's character is that, from the jump, there was the support of Dawson's character. Since Dawson was supportive, everybody else hopped on board and was very quick to embrace her. That's very much how my experience was off-camera. The people who really welcomed me the most were Uri, who played Otis, and David Eigenberg, who played Herrmann. And Brett [Kara Killmer]. They were very warm and, 'Come in, meet the family, meet my family, come over for dinner.'"

She continued, "But I think that, when doing a show and pushing characters who live in the culture of the CFD, it's hard not to exude that, because that's very much how firefighters are. It's all about family, it's all about helping people and the community. It's been a great team to be a part of."

In the interview, Mayo also talked about channeling the demanding profession that is firefighting into her acting process. "I feel like I've just been more curious, if that makes sense, just about the process of how people operate in this profession," she said. "I think maybe the most challenging part for me, or one of the more challenging parts is, I'm a very ... I love to talk about the process with other people. It's the archetype of an actor. 'Let's talk about our feelings, let's talk about our process, let's be in this together.' And that is the antithesis of the culture of the people who work in the CFD that I've met."
