THE CHICAGO CODE 1.12 'Greylord & Gambat'
Teresa and Jarek launch a grand jury inquiry against Alderman Gibbons as Liam blows his cover in the field.
By Blair Marnell
May 19th, 2011




Episode Title: "Greylord & Gambat"
Writer: Virgil Williams
Director: Paris Barclay


Previously on "The Chicago Code":

Chicago PD Superintendent Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) made it her mission to clean up Chicago's infamously dirty politics and take down Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo). She received an early setback when Gibbons revealed that her first chief of staff tried to sell her out. But when Gibbons handpicked her new chief of staff, Lt. Kelly, Teresa was able to keep him out of the loop on the Gibbons investigation. At the same time, Detective Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) and Detective Caleb Evans (Matt Lauria) investigated other criminal activity and tried to tie it back to Gibbons.

The most promising leads came from Liam Hennessey (Billy Lush), an undercover cop in the Irish mob who had gained favor with Gibbons. Liam had also witnessed his boss, Hugh Killian (Patrick St. Esprit) murder a man in front of him. With Liam's help, the police arrested a city trash truck driver named Ronnie Underwood, who was trafficking in drugs for Killian. Despite offers from Teresa and Jarek to come in, Liam insisted upon staying within the mob even as his associates began to get suspicious about his true motivations.

Story:

This is the day that Teresa Colvin has been waiting for. In front of a secretly convened grand jury, Teresa lays out the case against Gibbons and tells them about the garbage truck full of drugs driven by Ronnie Underwood for Killian, with the knowledge and cooperation of Gibbons. But Teresa overlooked one important thing: Ronnie himself, who has apparently skipped town because she didn't leave a police guard on him. She orders Jarek and Caleb to track him down. But in order to buy more time with the grand jury, Teresa admits that she has an undercover cop in the Irish mob who witnessed Killian killing a man.

Jarek and Caleb gather a small group of trusted officers to fan out and find Ronnie. Across town, Gibbons is admiring the posters for his upcoming campaign for mayor when his aide lets him know that Teresa has launched a grand jury investigation against him. Elsewhere, Elizabeth Killian asks Liam to go on a date with her. He refuses, citing Killian's objections to mixing his daughter up with the mob. However, she reveals that she's already involved with the mob as her father's accountant. When she answers Liam's phone, she finds her father on the line ordering Liam to report to him.

At the truck depot, Ronnie's brother tells Jarek that Ronnie was soliciting advice on whether he should testify or run. He also lets him know that he has a girlfriend named Penny who works at a local massage parlor. In his office, Gibbons angrily demands to know why Lt. Kelly didn't know about Teresa's plans for him. He also threatens Kelly and his family if he doesn't discover who the undercover cop in the Irish mob is. At the same time, Killian orders Mikey and Liam to locate Ronnie and Penny; which they do fairly quickly. But when Mikey makes moves to kill them both, Liam is forced to fatally stab him.

When other mob enforcers show up at Ronnie's door, Liam is able to preserve his cover momentarily and get rid of them. Unfortunately, Kelly came through for Gibbons and Liam is revealed to be Officer Chris Collier to both Gibbons and Killian. On the phone, Jarek pleads with Liam to come in, but Liam insists upon making one last play for evidence. He approaches Elizabeth and claims that Killian sent him personally because the cops are after him. As Elizabeth takes Liam to her real ledger for safekeeping, Teresa has Killian arrested and tries to get him to break.

A phone call to Elizabeth reveals that Liam is really a cop. He tries to talk her down, but she shoots him. He shoots her in return shortly before other members of the Irish mob show up and proceed to beat him mercilessly. Tracking Elizabeth's phone, Jarek and Caleb arrive and narrowly save Liam. But on the way to the hospital, Liam loses consciousness after giving Jarek Elizabeth's ledger... that implicates Gibbons directly. In the ensuing chaos, Gibbons is missing. However, Jarek finds Gibbons waiting for him at an unexpected location: his own desk in the police precinct.

The cornered Alderman wants the grand jury investigation to go away. And in return, he offers Jarek "justice" for his brother, who was murdered while on an undercover assignment years ago. Jarek barely contains his anger as he orders Gibbons to leave. But as he goes, Gibbons promises to "be in touch."

Breakdown:

If you're a fan of television, there's always going to be a show that you love that gets canceled prematurely. It's inevitable. Either through low ratings or network mismanagement, some series just don't take off. This calender year in particular was hard for me, because I already lost "Terriers," "Stargate Universe" and "Lights Out." If "The Chicago Code" could have been saved, it would have made my spring.

Because this show is everything I want from a cop drama. It has sharp writing, great characters, compelling stories... "The Chicago Code" really has it all.

But there is one bit of good news. We're going to get an ending for this series. This week's episode and next week's finale are actually going to wrap up the Alderman Gibbons storyline that's been percolating since episode one.

"Greylord & Gambat" kicked things off with a beautifully intense hour of television. It wasn't quite perfect, but it was pretty close. I do have to point out how stupid it was for Teresa and Jarek to leave Ronnie unattended and without a police escort ahead of the grand jury. Their rationale was that Killian would know Ronnie was testifying if they assigned a protective detail to him. But Killian already knew the cops had grabbed Ronnie when his truck never showed up!

It felt like this was a cheap way to manufacture some drama as the grand jury got started. Aside from that, the plot held together really well.

Billy Lush's storyline as Liam could have been a modern day "Wiseguy" just by itself. And it would have been cool to see his relationships with Mikey, Elizabeth and even Killian himself go deeper. This week's episode kind of put Liam and Elizabeth's relationship in fast forward, but I love that it ended with them both shooting each other. If she had sided with Liam over her father, it wouldn't have worked. Mikey's death was also a little rushed after seeing him with Liam so many times. However, it still made for a great moment when Liam finally betrayed him.

Delroy Lindo was also at the top of his game as we saw Gibbons descend into desperation for the first time. He's been such a cool, calculating villain for so many episodes that it was unexpected to see him so clearly rattled by the turn of events. I'd say that Teresa outsmarted him, but the major conflict came back to her again when she revealed Liam's role in the grand jury. Do cops really expose the existence of their undercover officers in the field while they can still be discovered?

After last week's episode focused on his family life (and lack there of), Jarek took a backseat for most of the hour. But Jason Clarke made the most of his confrontation with Gibbons, which may actually be the first time they've been in open conflict since the beginning of the series. For a final card to play against Jarek, bringing up his dead brother was a brilliant move by the Alderman. On this show, there's really only one person that's already been seen who could have killed Jarek's brother (and the preview for next week's episode is pretty blatant about it as well).

Regardless, the undercurrent of anger and menace from both Jarek and Gibbons was fantastic. A hero is usually only as good as his villain, but both of these characters are a cut above almost any others on TV. I'm fully invested in this show and I want to see how it all plays out. I suspect that Gibbons is going to go down, but not without a fight. And Jarek and Teresa are both probably going to pay a price for their victory.

Are there any other guesses about how this is going to play out? Feel free to weigh in below!

The Chicago Code: 1.13 "Mike Royko's Revenge" Review

Posted by Brittany on May 23, 2011

I knew I was going to be moved by the finale of The Chicago Code. I didn’t expect just how much.

The show set up plenty of dominoes over the season, and in another display of its trademark efficiency, starts knocking them down within minutes. We learn that Liam/Chris isn’t dead yet (just missing a spleen), Lieutenant Kelly is finally getting arrested for being a tool, and both Elizabeth Killian and not-so-innocent secretary Lily have been found. Things would be looking up for our heroes, if Alderman Gibbons wasn’t on TV calling for Teresa’s resignation, and privately trying to convince Jarek that Hugh Killian is the man who murdered his brother. You can’t say this show skimped on delivery.

The heart of the episode is bringing the fight against Gibbons to a head, if not a definitive end. Given that at the time this finale was written, the show was still very much in contention for a second season, I wondered if things would be definitively concluded or left hanging. Imagine my surprise when the episode delivered the moment we’d been waiting for all season long – seeing Teresa and Jarek publicly arrest Gibbons. It was a stand up and cheer moment that was definitely worth the wait. Yet unlike a few other finales I’ve seen this season, achieving the show’s main objective didn’t throw The Chicago Code into disarray. Instead, the journey to finally get there opened up other stories that could’ve been told…not to mention that, as well as we know Ronin Gibbons by now, it wouldn’t have been at all implausible to see him still be a relevant figure in season two.

Equally as important to the finale is Jarek’s pursuit of his brother’s murderer. The Chicago Code took what would be a meandering subplot on any other show and elevated it to the quality of a second major season-long storyline. The scene between Jarek and Teresa as he argues with her over the case is heartbreaking, because in all honesty they’re both right. What she’s saying about him risking everything they’ve worked for is true, yet at the same time, he deserves the opportunity to get justice for his brother. There’s no winner in the situation, and the expression on Jennifer Beals’ face at the conclusion of the scene perfectly shows the pain that Teresa feels, because she isn’t just looking at Jarek as a colleague but also as a close friend. Likewise, when Caleb turns up and snaps some sense back into Jarek, Matt Lauria has such a confidence about him that we realize Caleb has risen to become Jarek’s equal, and their relationship has matured to the point where Caleb would risk his own integrity to save his partner. Who didn’t smile when Jarek referred to Caleb as “a friend”?

My best actor award, though, goes unquestionably to Jason Clarke, who turns in another riveting performance. Given the kind of juicy, emotional material actors kill for, he runs with it but doesn’t oversell it. It’s all the little subleties that have endeared Clarke to me, and they’re still here, from the look in his eyes as Jarek watches Gibbons walk away, to how his grip on his gun wavers as he debates whether or not to blow Killian’s brain out the back of his skull. Finding out that Vincent was a dirty cop may be a bit cliche, but I forgive it because to me, it’s really about Jarek, and watching him not just battle with that knowledge, but have to follow his gut and go after the truth about the person he loved most. It’s what he’d do and the fact that it’s his brother doesn’t change that. And I love how the show refuses to paint Vincent with the broad stroke of a villain; he’s a man who used the wrong means for good intentions, and one still worthy of Jarek’s love and respect – and ours as well.

In more personal news, Jarek’s ex-fiancee Elena (Camille Guaty) turns up busted on a DUI. She’s got reason to be drunk: not only has she lost Jarek, but her ailing mother that we heard about in the pilot only has a few weeks left. If I were her, I’d be out of sorts and belligerent too. The moment I saw her face, I said “Why did we have to bring her up again?” and I never felt like that question was answered to my satisfaction. On one hand, her return does give me hope that Jarek can have some real happiness in his life, but on the other, given how perfectly she left – and how I’ve never felt chemistry between the two actors to begin with – I didn’t need to see her again. She was the one thing about this episode that I’ll trifle with. Still, because I love Jarek so much, I’ll pretend that he managed not to screw this second chance up.

I’m not too sure how I feel about Teresa (Jennifer Beals) pretending to be somebody else in order to pick up a random guy at a bar. I somewhat understand it – as she points out early on, her own identity comes with way too much baggage for dating – but it still feels weird to me. That, and with the return of FBI agent Cuyler (the always fab Adam Arkin), I have to admit that I was pulling for the two of them.

All in all, The Chicago Code went out the way that it came in: as a strong piece of storytelling without any hype, bolstered by some fantastic acting. In its conclusion, it continued to do what I always loved about this show, which is that it flipped the middle finger at TV expectations. When it hit a note that could have been cliche, with the exception of Elena, it turned it into something stronger and more complex. And in an age when the TV season finale has become an over-hyped affair promising shocking plot twists, character deaths, and other often gratuitous plays for attention, this show treated it like any other episode, focusing on telling a good story and remaining faithful to its characters. It didn’t need to flail for our attention; the creative team had enough confidence in themselves to know that they already had it.

I have to admit that I’m typing this while wiping away tears, for a variety of reasons. For not just one but several of the main characters, people I’ve come to love who have closure and hope in their lives after we’ve watched them sacrifice and struggle all season long. For actors who got even better as their characters got richer, because I know that they’ll probably get overlooked by critics and awards season alike. For the ideas about season two that this episode put in my head and that I know we’ll never see. And for the fans who’ve loved and lost. This is not the first time The Chicago Code has made me cry. It’s just that damn good.

It’s the end of the journey, at least for now. But should this be the definitive end, I have no regrets. No unanswered questions. No moments I wish I’d take back. No weak episodes. This is as close to perfect as I’ve seen a TV show get. If this is all we’ll get, I can look back on this not just as one fantastic season, but taking it as a whole, as one of the great journeys I’ve taken in television.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to raise a glass for Jarek Wysocki, because I feel like I should.

The Chicago Code. Tiene en común con la anterior que las dos son obra de Shawn Ryan (The Shield). El propio Ryan se quejaba hace algunos días en su Twitter de la mala suerte que ha tenido esta temporada y como parecía haberse convertido en todo un especialista en miniseries. The Chicago Code tiene muchos de los ingredientes que hace triunfar a una serie: una historia de policías, corrupción, el apoyo de una cadena como Fox (que la lanzó como su apuesta de la midseason) y un plantel de actores muy solventes (entre ellos una renacida Jennifer Beals ). De las cuatro series de las que hablamos en este post es la más floja, pero sigue mereciendo un visionado. Su problema quizá ha sido que era un drama demasiado de manual y poco innovador (las series de policías no son precisamente escasas) y algunos problemas de ritmo en el guión. Los dos últimos capítulos prometían una segunda temporada mucho más sólida.

A Eulogy for The Chicago Code




I watched the Chicago Code for Jennifer Beals. I watched it because she played the Chicago police superintendent which made her the highest ranking female on the force. I continued to watch it for her battle of wills with Alderman Gibbons played wickedly by Delroy Lindo. I liked it because they made her a complicated character and as the first female and bi-racial leader she did have to be better than the guys and above reproach. I loved how she worked with her former partner Jarek Wysocki to try and bring down the bad guys. I loved that she didn’t care that people all assumed that they slept together. I also loved that some of the great young actors from Friday Night Lights are continuing to play cool parts like Matt Lauria did on this show.

But boy did I hate the ending.

Beal’s character Teresa Colvin turned down a date with an FBI agent because she thought that people would get the wrong idea and that they wouldn’t be able to separate their work and personal life. Ok. Whatever. But then she shows up at a bar in a local hotel all dressed up and literally picks up a guy from out of town who clearly has no idea who she is. For a woman who spent the whole series worrying about appearing above reproach could she really think that a one night stand in a Chicago hotel even if it was with a tourist would not get found out in some way is ridiculous. Was that what they were going to go with in season two (if they had one?) And aside from the fact it pissed me off personally, that that was the way wrong image of this strong woman they left us with. I’m all for women being flawed and real characters and figuring out how to have sex lives, personal lives and work lives, but this was a complete sell out in my book and made me so angry.

Did anyone else watch it or was I the only sucker who walked down that lane for 10 episodes?

Jennifer Beals, The Chicago Code

As solid as her work on Fox's cop drama was, the Flashdance icon has next to no shot at an Emmy nomination. It isn’t unheard of for the star of a canceled show to get a nod, of course. But the acclaimed crime drama lasted less than four months, which sadly was not enough time for regular viewers to discover it, much less Emmy voters.

An accomplished actress known for taking risks in a myriad of different roles, and winner of the 1999 San Jose Film Festival's Maverick Award, JENNIFER BEALS continues to remain a successful and hardworking actress. She was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People for 2011.

She was last seen on the big screen in Warner Bros. “The Book of Eli,” a post-apocalyptic western about a man fighting to protect a sacred book that can save mankind. She starred alongside Denzel Washington (reuniting them on the big screen) and Gary Oldman. She was also seen in the French film “Joueuse,” about a maid who becomes fascinated with chess through a vacationing couple in the Mediterranean.

Beals was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series by the NAACP two years in a row for her role in the critically acclaimed Showtime Original Series, "The L Word." The story centered on a group of lesbian friends in Los Angeles, including Pam Grier and Mia Kirschner and wrapped its sixth and final season last year. Throughout the series, Beals captured life behind the scenes in a photographic series, now available as a collection at lwordbook.com. The book includes over 400 never-before-seen photos, cast commentary, bits of scripts, callsheets and production memos that give fans a deeper look into the daily life of the show.

Her hard work and dedication on "The L Word" has earned her accolades, nominations and enormous appreciation from numerous groups including, the Power Up Award, the GLAAD Golden Gate Award and the Golden Satellite Award for Outstanding Actress.

She starred in VH-1's "They Shoot Divas, Don't They?" where her role as a has-been rock star on the verge of a breakdown earned her rave reviews. She also co-starred in two Showtime features: the adaptation of Anne Rice's praised "A Feast of All Saints," and the original film "A House Divided" starring as Amanda Dickson, opposite Sam Waterston and Lisa Gay Hamilton. "A House Divided" received a Writers Guild nomination in the original long-form project/movie and mini-series category, as well as nabbing Beals a Golden Satellite nomination as Best Actress in a movie/mini-series. She also did extensive research for the film in Sparta, Georgia, where the story is based and received an honorary 'key to the city.'

Originally from Chicago, Beals began her career after graduating from high school when she auditioned for "Flashdance," resulting in a role which earned her a Golden Globe nomination and an NAACP Image Award for "Best Actress." Understanding the importance of an education, she entered Yale University to study American Literature, where she graduated with honors.

She went on to make an indelible impression in Carl Franklin's critically acclaimed "Devil in a Blue Dress" opposite Denzel Washington, as well as in Alan Rudolph's "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" opposite Jennifer Jason Leigh and Matthew Broderick. Her performance in “Blue Dress” earned her another NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Motion Picture.

In recent years, Beals has had starring roles in a myriad of films, including the lead in "Twilight of The Golds" opposite Garry Marshall, Faye Dunaway, Brendan Fraser and Jon Tenney. Beals portrayed a strong-minded woman who has the difficult decision of whether to give birth to a male child who has the possible genetic makeup for homosexuality, a controversial role for which she won a Golden Satellite Award for Best Actress.

She starred opposite Campbell Scott in Artisan Entertainment's critically acclaimed "Rodger Dodger," winner of the 2002 Best Feature Narrative from the Tribeca Film Festival, and Best First Film at the Venice Film Festival. She was also seen in the critically acclaimed "The Anniversary Party," written and directed by Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cummings.

Additional film credits include "The Grudge 2, " "My Name is Sarah," "Runaway Jury," "Catch That Kid," Whit Stillman's "Last Days of Disco," Alexandre Rockwell's "In the Soup," which won the 1992 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Deauville Film Festival, "Four Rooms," "Vampire's Kiss" with Nicolas Cage, Claude Chabrol's "Doctor M.," Nanni Moretti's "Caro Diario" which won the Director's Prize at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, and Samuel Fuller's "The Madonna and the Dragon."

On the small screen, Beals appeared on the critically-acclaimed television series for ABC, "Nothing Sacred," playing opposite Kevin Anderson.

She most recently starred in the critacally acclaimed THE CHICAGO CODE, the compelling police drama from critically acclaimed creator Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”), which follows the Windy City’s most powerful and respected cops as they navigate the city’s underbelly to fight crime and expose corruption within Chicago’s notorious political machine.

Set and shot on location in Chicago, THE CHICAGO CODE is a fast-paced series centered on JAREK WYSOCKI (Jason Clarke), a local legend and a larger-than-life veteran of the Chicago Police Department who wields considerable power thanks to his relationship with TERESA COLVIN (Jennifer Beals), his ex-partner and the city’s first female superintendent, now in charge of a 10,000-member police force. While Teresa diplomatically governs amidst the complicated landscape of Chicago politics, Jarek works the streets on a crusade to clean up corruption and crime and avenge his brother’s murder. Along the way, they will stop at nothing to bring down their powerful adversaries, including ALDERMAN RONIN GIBBONS (Delroy Lindo), a building-magnate-turned-politician who has ruled his ward with a velvet glove for over two decades.

We will be screening the "O'Leary's Cow" episode.

Artículo de Dailymail con motivo al recientemente estrenado The Chicago Code en UK
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2006900/What-feeling-I-ve-got-47-Jennifer-Beals-sex-symbol-Flashdance-s-setting-TV-screens-alight-decades-later.html#ixzz1QGqs5NSX




What a feeling! I’ve still got it at 47: Jennifer Beals first became a sex symbol in Flashdance and now she’s setting TV screens alight almost three decades later

By Lina Das, 24 june 2011

Jennifer Beals was the star of Flashdance, one of the biggest movies of the 1980s – with one of the most memorable soundtracks – and although it’s hard to believe the film is nearly 30 years old, her place in men’s hearts is unassailed.

As Alex Owens – the legendary welder-by-day/dancer-by-night – Jennifer walked the tough-yet-feminine line with singular aplomb, and it’s a feat she manages once again in her new series The Chicago Code.
It is a crime drama (created by Shawn Ryan, the man behind The Shield) that focuses on the frictions behind the city’s police force. Beals is again thrust into a male-dominated world as Teresa Colvin, Chicago’s first female police chief and the woman in charge of a 10,000-strong force.


Comeback: Jennifer Beals first became a sex symbol in Flashdance when she was 19 and now at 47 she is making a return in her new crime drama The Chicago Code

Colvin fights corruption, moving her way round the convoluted politics of the city and kicking industrial amounts of backside. But, says Jennifer, ‘She and I are very different. She has a strong moral compass, but she just isn’t too good at balancing family and friends with her job.’

After a career spanning 30 years, with roles in films such as The Book Of Eli with Denzel Washington, The Chicago Code is Jennifer’s third regular TV role – her first was on The L Word, which ended two years ago. It was a critical and commercial success, and focused on the love lives of a glamorous group of LA lesbians, not dissimilar to the straight ladies of Sex And The City.

Her role as Bette Porter included a smattering of lesbian love scenes, and although Jennifer had a no-nudity clause in her contract (‘I was offered Playboy and told them I’d do it when there was peace in the Middle East’), she still engaged in some risqué moments on screen. ‘As you get older, any kind of sex scene becomes a concern,’ she laughs. ‘As for kissing women, at first I thought, “What do I do?” But then I decided, this scene is about me loving this person, so I just related it to that. I’m heterosexual and have not questioned my sexuality so the love scenes weren’t a problem.’

That the show revved up Jennifer’s sex symbol status is unquestionable, ‘and at my age, I’m just grateful if anyone still thinks I’m sexy.’ She is, of course, talking nonsense. At 47 and devoid of make-up, she is still immensely pretty, and in khaki capris, gingham shirt and flip flops, retains her svelte Flashdance figure. She hasn’t resorted to Botox or surgery: ‘I have no intention of doing so because I’d be the one they’d screw it up on and I’d end up looking like a Picasso.’

Jennifer has long had a reputation for guarding her private life (‘there are about three people who have my home phone number and they are all related to me’), and for tensing slightly at any mention of the ‘F’ word. It is noticeable how her chattiness dissolves when I speak of Flashdance. One can understand her wariness at having to discuss a film she made so long ago, but it was a huge success, making more than £60m in the States alone and turning 19-year-old Jennifer into a star.

‘I’ve done a lot since then, but it seems that people just love talking about it. I don’t think it makes me feel proud, because I didn’t write or direct it. But it’s nice that people remember the film fondly. I was offered lots of money to make Flashdance 2, but I just wasn’t interested. Money has never been a motivating factor for me but you have no idea what people around me were going through when I turned down the offers. They were losing their minds. But I don’t have any regrets.’

Jennifer beat 4,000 other girls to win the part of Alex Owens in Flashdance, but when the film became a worldwide hit and offers flooded in, she did the unthinkable: she turned her back on fame and went to Yale University to study literature, Italian and photography. What then does she make of the young Hollywood stars such as Lindsay Lohan, shuttling between parties, rehab and court appearances? ‘My advice to them would be just to stop!’ she says. ‘You can’t party every day. I suppose life is about the pursuit of pleasures and mine didn’t involve alcohol, they involved reading.’

At Yale, fellow students included Jodie Foster and David Duchovny of The X-Files. ‘At college he used to follow me around and ask me for dates,’ she laughs. ‘And then, when I went to acting class in New York, who was there but David Duchovny? He swore he wasn’t stalking me, but after that we became acting partners and friends.’

Born in Chicago to mixed-race parents, Jennifer, the middle of three children, was just nine when her father died. Despite being ‘unbelievably shy’, she loved acting in school plays. ‘I don’t know if acting helped me overcome my shyness, but you can’t afford to be shy in this business because you’re forever telling people to “p*** off”!’ She has been married to Canadian entrepreneur Ken Dixon for 13 years and says, ‘My husband does so many romantic things. One day I was on my way home and he knew that I had not had a great day, so he had a gazillion rose petals in the doorway that spelled out “I love you”.’

Jennifer was stepmother to his two children, now aged 18 and 23, and then, at the age of 41, she gave birth to her first child. ‘I won’t tell you her name. She’s five now and can tell you herself when she’s older. Even though I was in my 40s, I hadn’t given up hope of having children. I just always thought it would happen when it was supposed to. I don’t know if having a child later makes it more special because it’s special whenever it happens, but it’s amazing how your priorities change overnight.’

She insists she has no regrets about shying away from more lucrative roles early in her career. ‘I care a lot about my work. I’m just not someone who concentrates on my career. I think that’s a very boring way of looking at things.’ The very opposite then of her new character, Teresa Colvin. ‘Teresa is very driven and righteous and I’m not nearly as driven or organised. I need to talk out loud a lot just to get myself out the door.’

The Chicago Code is on Thursdays, 9pm, Sky1.
