Are Brian Tee And Nick Gehlfuss From Chicago Med Friends In Real Life?

One of the most interconnected universes on television has nothing to do with superheroes or science-fiction. Instead, it focuses on the emergency personnel who help keep the city of Chicago safe. "One Chicago" has had various series over the years, primarily with "Chicago P.D.," "Chicago Fire," and "Chicago Med." Characters from each series will crossover and interact with one another, doing an exceptional job of showing how these various positions actually intersect in real life. The franchise truly lives up to its name by showcasing how there's really only one Chicago at the end of the day.

Many found families have been forged through these shows, especially "Chicago Med," where the workers see some terrible things day in and day out. The doctors, nurses, and other people in the emergency department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center have to rely on one another, which goes double for the actors in real life. Many friendships have been forged on the show, if social media is any indication, and it would appear that Brian Tee and Nick Gehlfuss, who play Ethan Choi and Will Halstead, respectively, share a great deal of respect for one another.

Nick Gehlfuss and Brian Tee are clearly friends in real life

It's always hard to tell if actors are friends in real life if they play friends in a TV show. You never know if the chemistry is genuine or if they're just really good at their jobs. However, it would appear that Nick Gehlfuss and Brian Tee, who have had many scenes together on "Chicago Med" over the years, are, in fact, friends. 

The clearest example of this on social media is a post Nick Gehlfuss made on Instagram where he shared an article written by his co-star Brian Tee. In 2021, Tee wrote about the importance of Asian representation in media for Deadline. Gehlfuss shared an image of the article along with the caption, "I stand in solidarity with my Asian family, friends and communities. Please read my friend @brian_tee's powerful article." 

That's not the only time Tee has made his way onto Gehlfuss' Instagram feed. Gehlfuss has regularly shared photos of the two hanging out behind the scenes of their show, and it's always nothing but smiles and laughs. It would appear Gehlfuss and Tee aren't the only friendship that's formed on "Chicago Med." Everyone seems to get along, which should come as a great comfort to fans.
