Sophia Bush tackles subject of Chicago PD exit, supports majority of cast, crew

Sophia BushIt’s been over a year since the final episode of Chicago PD with Sophia Bush aired, but even with that in mind, we do still think that she is missed. She was a valuable part of the show and the one thing that makes her departure even sadder is the way in which it happened. She has been careful against saying anything specific regarding for the reason for her exit, but in a new interview with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM show she got (slightly) more candid on the subject.

Take a look at some of Bush’s comments both in text / video form below, referencing Cohen’s own question that she left over the behavior of one of her co-stars:

“It’s a complicated question to answer only because 99.9 percent of the people who are on that show are my family, and they are people I would go to war for. They are people who I will protect and have chosen to protect very specifically, who I love very much … What I will say is – compared to most women that I know, and women that work in industries that are far less supportive of women than mine, if you can imagine – it’s all gravy. To have encountered two really terrible people over the course of my career, is kind of a cakewalk.”

The other “terrible person” Bush is referring to here is likely One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn, who she and other co-stars have accused of sexual misconduct.

The tone of the conversation between Bush and Cohen is a reminder that she is intent on doing everything that she can in order to continue to support her other co-stars who still have jobs there. She was extremely complimentary of the crew in this interview, and it is another reminder that you can support your former show even if you don’t support someone who worked on it or his actions. Prior to the start of this past season, for example, Bush wished good luck and congratulations to many of her fellow actors.

While we’d obviously love another appearance of Erin Lindsay on Chicago PD, we do agree that Sophia’s happiness comes first and we applaud her for seeking that.
