Brown was a veteran of Chicago theater. She worked as a crisis counselor at a Chicago high school and led its drama program before winning the role of Connie on “Chicago Fire”. She played the assistant to Chief Boden, played by Eamonn Walker.

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, author of the best-selling book “A Brief History of Time," died at the age of 76 at his home in Caimbridge, England on March 13, 2018. “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today," Hawking’s children, Lucy, Robert and Tim said in a statement. “He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."

Brown also had a recurring role as nurse Kattie Welch in “Prison Break” and one-time guest spots on “Empire” and “Shameless.”


In a statement, “Chicago Fire” executive producer Dick Wolf said the show’s family is “devastated to lose one of its own.”
