By Jackie Manno

Tracy Spiridakos (Hailey Upton) recently added some sunshine to her life. Literally! 

How to Watch

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

On August 28, the Chicago P.D. star took to her official Instagram page to share the most gorgeous snapshots of her relaxing on a beach. In the pictures, she holds up the camera and smiles while sporting some cool aviator sunglasses. Then, she shows us some closeups of an amazing bright orange sunset above some peaceful-looking water. 

"Beautiful sunset 😍 Also, that last one is not a filter, just a zoom in. Crazy huh? The sun had a lot to say that day," she said in the caption. 

Spiridakos is currently living her best life. She recently shared some cute clips to Instagram of herself playing fetch with her adorable Rotweiller, Nala. In one post, Spiridakos tosses a tennis ball in the air before zooming in on Nala's goofy, determined face as she tries to catch it with her jaw wide open. 

"Nala is known for her gracefulness," Spiridakos wrote in the caption.

In an interview with Variety, Spiridakos opened up about how her character is coping after her on-screen partner Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) left for Bolivia. 

“I think she’s going through the motions and she’s getting up, going to work and getting up, going to work, but there’s a lot of inner turmoil happening,” she told the outlet. “This ultimately will change her in some way, which I’m interested to see how. We’re still in the change. She finds out that he’s extended his stay and has that breakdown moment of having this hope and then all of a sudden, that’s gone. It’s the first time we see her break down since he’s left, since their goodbye. I think there’s gonna be some changes for her over the next little while.”

She continued, “She still considers herself still married. I think her taking it off, I’m sure there will be a moment that will come. I assume that’s coming. I’m interested to see what that will be like. Is that a goodbye? Is that self preservation? … I’d like to explore what that feels like to have been in such a raw place and she’s not overly open anyway. I feel that she probably will just shut that door for a long time.”

"On a personal level," she added, "I can imagine that there’s gonna be a part of her that shuts down emotionally. As far as a relationship and even getting close to people, I can see her being somebody that will keep people at a distance while she’s going through what she’s going through."
