With 12 seasons under its belt, it's no wonder the Chicago Fire cast and crew have become so close over the years. Firehouse 51 fan favorite Miranda Rae Mayo, who plays Stella Kidd, chatted about the Chicago Fire crew and cast in a 2022 interview with Looper.

"The crew was so loving and warm and welcoming and really wanted me to succeed," Mayo 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 Yuri [Sardarov], 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.'"

Taylor Kinney, who plays Chicago Fire OG Kelly Severide, echoed this sentiment in a 2022 interview with Us Weekly, explaining that the massive success of the One Chicago franchise is largely thanks to the family-like camaraderie of the show teams.

"It’s never lost on me how special it is to be a part of something with the longevity this has," Kinney said. "It’s a testament to [show creator] Dick Wolf and the team of people he puts together.”

Vivienne Marie was an exemplary member of the Chicago Fire family who will be sorely missed.
