Taylor Kinney Says He Wants to See Trudy Platt Break Severide 'Like a Stick'

It's a reference to the first time the characters ever met! 

By Tayi Sanusi

Chicago P.D.'s Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) is so much more than the front-desk sergeant at the Chicago Police Department—she's also the backbone of the District 21 precinct.

How to Watch

Watch Chicago P.D. on NBC and Peacock.

Platt is known for her strength, intensity, and can-do attitude. Although she cares for her team deeply, her unbreakable outer shell makes her hard to read. This tough exterior has left many viewers asking: Who is Trudy Platt? Here's what the One Chicago cast has to say about the loveably enigmatic character. 

"One of the most compelling things about Trudy Platt is that she has this tough exterior,” fellow One Chicago actor Oliver Platt (who plays Dr. Daniel Charles on Chicago Med) says. But most people I know who have tough exteriors, they’re just protecting a very soft, gooey, center. I wanna know what’s going on in there.”

In the series, Platt is married to Chicago Fire's Randall "Mouch" McHolland (played by Christian Stolte). Chicago Med actress Marlyne Barrett (Maggie Lockwood) thinks Mouch's moves in the kitchen drew Platt to him. 

"I think that [Mouch] is the better cook because of the firehouse, so he technically has culinary gifts under that, and she loves him for that," Barrett says. 

Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney (Kelly Severide) also weighed in on one of his character's most memorable interactions with Platt, and spoiler alert: It's hilarious. 

"One of the first interactions that Severide had with Platt was, he was at the police station, and she said if they went out, she’d break him like a stick," Kinney recalled. "I would like to see what that would look like."

One thing's for certain, the One Chicago cast absolutely adores both Platt, and Amy Morton, the amazingly talented actor who brings the character to life. 

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