One Chicago has one of the most gracious ensembles in all of TV. The actors who make up each show are constantly interacting with fans and sharing their theories/thoughts on what is going to happen to their characters. Chicago PD is particularly good at connecting with fans on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram.
Because there are some many cast members who actively post behind-the-scenes photos, we felt it would be fun to look at each of their Instagram profiles and determine which Chicago PD star has the biggest and most fervent following! We have to admit, we were surprised with the results.
How many Instagram followers does Jesse Lee Soffer have?
Tracy Spiridakos (Hailey Upton) seems like a good starting point, since the actress has confirmed that she’ll be leaving the show in season 11. She’s been a part of Chicago PD since season 4, and is always posting fun tidbits about the stunts she has to perform, or the silly things she has to do during otherwise very dramatic scenes. Spiridakos has an impressive 514K followers on Instagram.
Patrick John Flueger (Adam Ruzek) and LaRoyce Hawkins (Kevin Atwater) have similarly strong IG followings, which makes sense given how beloved their characters are on the show. They drove a lot of the storylines in season 10, and were arguably the two most important people in the season finale. Flueger has 546K followers, putting him just ahead of Spiridakos, and Hawkins leaps both of them with 640K followers.
Here’s a ranking of each main cast member and their respective following:
8. Amy Morton – 7K followers
7. Jason Beghe – 17K followers
6. Benjamin Levy Aguilar – 98K followers
5. Tracy Spiridakos – 514K followers
4. Patrick John Flueger – 546K followers
3. LaRoyce Hawkins – 640K followers
2. Marina Squerciati – 840K followers
1. Jesse Lee Soffer – 1M followers
Halstead for the win! Jesse Lee Soffer left the show in season 10, but his character has been referenced since, and he’s one of the original PD members, so it seems fair to include him.
Soffer is less active than Marina Squerciati (Kim Burgess), who we really thought was going to take it, but Soffer has kept fans updated on the status of the actors strike, and he posted some heartwarming set photos when he came back to direct an episode of PD. Soffer clocks in at a staggering 1M followers!
