From Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (the “Law & Order” and “Chicago” brands), “Chicago Med” is an emotional thrill ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s newest state-of-the-art trauma center and into the lives of the courageous doctors, nurses and staff who hold it all together.
April Sexton is another pivotal part of the drama-filled Chicago universe, taking her post as an important cog in Chicago Med.
April Sexton is the Emergency Department Nurse at the Gaffney Chicago Medical Centre on the show Chicago Fire. She’s committed and hard-working but manages to balance personal life with work duties. She is also much sought after by men on the show – first Kelly Severide, and then Ethan Choi. The dedicated nurse features in 61 episodes of Chicago Fire.
She enters the show in a fairly gentle way but leaves a big impression on fans, and adds an interesting dynamic to the unfolding of the narrative. It’s also through interactions with her that viewers learn about the true nature of certain characters, such as Kelly. Here are 10 things about April Sexton fans of the character might not know:
Judging by her, at times, bossiness and her superior organizational skills, it should come as no surprise that April Sexton is a big sister. She is the oldest of two children, having a younger brother, called Noah. She has made many sacrifices for her little brother, even putting her own agendas aside to help him through medical school. The determined nurse definitely shows that at the center of her success, is a big heart and loyalty towards her family.
April has strong ties in the community she serves. She and Kelly Severide are childhood friends, as evidenced by the narrative – and one of the reasons Kelly pursues her with such determination. The two have a history that stretches beyond the fringes of the series’ narrative, having known each other for years before working together as colleagues. They have a brief fling in the show and when this doesn’t quite work out, continue to maintain strong ties.
April Sexton enters Chicago Fire’s narrative in a fairly gentle way. She is first mentioned when a mutual friend of her and Kelly Severide’s mentions to him that she is working at Chicago Med.
Kelly is at the time serving in Squad 3. Perhaps he has always had a crush on her (since he has known her since childhood), but he heads straight for Chicago Med on hearing that she works there, and invites her for a drink at Molly’s, a pub in the area. This is how fans first meet her.
April breaks cultural boundaries all the time, even in terms of who she is and where she comes from. She is an American citizen but hails from Brazil, speaking Brazilian Portuguese and even Spanish. Then there is her choice of partners.
She dates Caucasian Kelly Severide and later, Asian Ethan Choi, and sets a fine example among her colleagues – and with viewers – that beauty is more than skin deep and that it takes all cultures and races to bring the on-screen magic to Chicago Med.
April is every bit the woman, in the eyes of childhood friend Kelly Severide of course. He doesn’t just give up his pursuit of her. At one stage, he surprises her at work and invites her to the pub Molly’s. In another episode, he asks her to attend an Eminem concert with him, to celebrate ‘the good old days’.
When this doesn’t work, one of their mutual friends invites April to a breakfast gettogether and guess who is there – none other than the determined Kelly. He definitely sees something in her worth pursuing.
