Fall TV Preview

Exclusive: Onetime One Life to Live Troublemaker Joins NBC's New Chicago Fire Drama

One Life to Live alumna Meghann Fahy is set to sizzle on NBC’s new fall drama Chicago Fire.

The actress — who played stalker/pill-popper/Statesville denizen Hannah O’Connor on the ill-fated ABC soap — has booked a multi-episode arc on the firefighter series, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Fahy will play Nicki Kahler, the very sexy but very engaged assistant to Firehouse 51 Chief Wallace Boden (played by Oz‘s Eamonn Walker). Jesse Spencer (House) and Taylor Kinney (The Vampire Diaries) also star on the freshman drama.

  • I know a lot of people hated her character on OLTL (and that was kind of the point), but she’s a FANTASTIC actress! I’m glad she’s been finding steady work.

    • She really is. I HATED her on OLTL and I HATE her on Political Animals. She plays really awful characters.

  • She is very talented and did a great job on OLTL. She was great fun to watch as crazy Hannah. I look forward to seeing her and the others you mention on this new NBC primetime show.

  • And she was absolutely brilliant in the Tony Award/Pulitzer Prize winning musical Next to Normal. She’s an extremely talented young woman with so much more ahead of her!
