On December 9, Tracy Spiridakos (Hailey Upton) posted some cute pictures of herself and her adorable Rottweiler, Nala, hanging out behind the scenes of filming Season 11. In the pictures, the two laid down on the floor together while Spiridakos gave the pup a big smooch on the face. We then catch a glimpse of Nala looking up at the camera with her big brown eyes. 

"Nala came to work with me today," Spiridakos wrote on the post.

Spiridakos is very fond of sharing sweet snapshots of Nala. In July 2022, when Spiridakos started filming Chicago P.D. Season 10, she also brought the pup behind the scenes. 

"And we're back!" she captioned the post.

Then, in August, Spriridakos posted the funniest update of Nala hilariously catching a tennis ball. In the pictures, Spirirdakos zoomed in on Nala making a goofy face while she was determine to catch the toy. 

"Nala is known for her gracefulness," Spiridakos captioned the post.

Tracy Spiridakos on how Upton is coping after Halstead's exit

In a January interview with Variety, the actress opened up about how her character Upton is dealing with her intense emotions after her on-screen partner, Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) made a sudden departure to Bolivia in Season 10

“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 break down 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.”

"On a personal level, 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,” she added.
