Jesse Lee Soffer | Chicago PD
There were numerous instances in this week’s gripping episode of Chicago PD where Jesse Lee Soffer’s acting choices could’ve changed the way the audience reacted towards his character, but with each scene, he played the emotions just right. And that’s always something I find vastly significant because if the portrayal is overdone then I’m taken aback. Also, if an actor’s eyes do not reflect what the character wants the audience to see, then the scene falls incredibly short. Soffer presented Halstead’s heartbreak, rage, disbelief, and satisfaction impeccably.
While Halstead’s always been a cop who’s valued honor, that didn’t change in this week’s episode, but Soffer illuminated the contentment in knowing Lonnie would never hurt anyone else again. His subtle yet phenomenally expressive acting choices were noteworthy on all grounds.
