The actress’ character, Gail McLeod, is in charge of monitoring budgets and performance at the city’s fire houses. That may spell trouble for the men and women at 51, which is definitely under her microscope.

Forbes’ other TV credits include True Blood, In Treatment and Prison Break.

      • It starts off kind of slow (the pilot is actually the worst episode, LOL) but it gets SO much better as the season goes on. IIRC, you can watch the whole season on NBC.com or Hulu right now. It’s a fantastic show and I think you’ll enjoy it! =)

  • I hated her character on True Blood, which means she was freaking amazing at playing that villain, so I’m excited to see her.

  • I didn’t watch Chicago Fire last year because the reviews weren’t that great and it was on at the same time I was watching something else. However, I marathon-watched the season this summer and really enjoyed it, so had planned on watching this fall anyway. However, now that Michelle Forbes is going to be on, that just increases my interest. She was the best thing about The Killing. And I remember her as Ro, too.
