Tracy Spiridakos on what to expect from Upton's love life on Chicago P.D. Season 11

In an interview with Variety, the actress opened up about how he character is coping since her onscreen beau, Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) ghosted her after leaving for Bolivia

"This ultimately will change her in some way, which I’m interested to see how," she told the outlet. "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 is 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.”
