Texas Beauty adds Verve to Chicago Fire

It’s early afternoon in California and actress Dora Madison is in her yard yelling at her dog. “She keeps getting into my neighbor’s yard,” Madison says with a normalcy that belies her status as the new character “Chili” on the wildly successful NBC hit “Chicago Fire.”

If there’s a takeaway that Madison can add from her experience as the new paramedic on Chicago Fire, it’s the Heimlich maneuver. “I can do it on someone who’s in trouble,” Madison says.

“There’s a paramedic trainer on set and she has taught me a lot of things,” she adds. Even though Madison spends some of her time in Los Angeles she lives in Chicago while she’s filming the popular television series. The show is so popular, it’s added spin-offs and Madison’s spitfire character. In fact, viewers will serve learn to love Madison, a comely Texas actress, and she’s certainly learning to love Chicago winters as opposed to those in Los Angeles.

Madison was born and raised in Hutto Texas, the youngest of seven kids. “I worked with one actress who moved to Chicago from a warmer climate and she’s having a hard time getting used to the cold,” Madison says. But, even being from Texas, Madison says she’s getting used to Chicago’s chillier climate. She will next be seen, according to her film biography in the “Untitled Terrence Malick Project” and Paramount’s “That’s What I’m Talking About” from director Richard Linklater. She also has starred with actors James Marsden and Karl Urban.
