It wasn’t Jesse Spencer’s original plan to go from a long stint on the Fox medical drama “House” to another long stint as a firefighter in the windy city, but when “Chicago Fire” came calling, Spencer couldn’t say no. But as “House,” was coming to a close in 2012, “Chicago Fire” was set to premiere, and according to the Sioux City Journal, the actor had this to say about the experience: “I was filming the pilot of ‘Chicago Fire’ on the weekend while we were still doing ‘House.’ When I look back on it, it was probably the right thing.”
After another impressive run of 10 seasons on “Chicago Fire,” Spencer decided it was time to move on and used a talent outside his acting ability to bid farewell to the long-running drama. Spencer, who grew up in Melbourne, Australia, was first nurtured in his singing ability, which eventually led him to pursue musical talents. He is proficient in the guitar and piano, but it’s the violin he’s been playing since he was 10.
To say goodbye to his character and the show, Spencer wrote an original song he titled, “Firebug (si ca te fait plaisir)”, which translates to “if it pleases you,” per Us Weekly. In the song, he showcases his violin skills as he sings, “Well that flame forever burns in my heart … just would not have been the same without you all right here.”
