Taylor Kinney: 'Bullett' Magazine Feature
Here’s what the 31-year-old actor had to share:
On training with firefighters for his show Chicago Fire: “Yeah, it was great. We went there a few months ago to film the pilot in March and we shadowed firemen within the city. We went to three or four different firehouses. The local community and firefighters were giving us a hand and showing us the ropes of the city and the districts, where they worked, and the differences between the rescue squad, the truck guys, engine guys, and paramedics. I really saw the camaraderie between these people. It’s in their blood to be able to go and do these things on a daily basis, to put themselves in harm’s way, and then to let go when they leave work. They’re a special breed of people.”
On what he spray-painted for a girl once: “’I love you.’ It was one of those things, like, a guy fighting for a girl’s affection and attention. It was a desperate attempt. I think the billboard was on Fairfax and Melrose. I had an accomplice; we dressed in black and had a few beers—it was maybe 4am—and we used our cell phones on speaker as walkie-talkies. He hoisted me on his shoulders to a ladder. It was a big bank billboard, so it was in all white.”
On how to get over a bad break-up: “Sometimes I go surfing. Everybody has a breakup story. It’s all relative to the individual how they take it and how it affects them. I think the biggest thing is what you take from it and what you learn from a breakup and how it can help you approach your next relationship. It’s also important to acknowledge if something wasn’t right and to not go back. I think a lot of people do that, too—go back.”
