"Chicago Fire" Star Jesse Spencer To Be Honored by Chicago International Film Festival TV Awards April 10!

"Chicago Fire" Star Jesse Spencer To Be Honored by Chicago International Film Festival TV Awards April 10


Jay Levine and Mary Ann Childers to Host Festive Evening, April 10, 2014 at Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel

  The Chicago International Film Festival Television Awards will honor Jesse Spencer, best known for his portrayals of Matthew Casey on Wolf Films/Universal Television drama "Chicago Fire" (which airs Tuesdays, 8 p.m. CT on NBC) and Dr. Robert Chase on "House," with the Artistic Achievement Award. The celebratory evening will be April 10, 2014 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel (221 N. Columbus Dr.).

The awards presentation will be hosted by Jay Levine, CBS 2 Chief Correspondent and Mary Ann Childers, a media consultant and veteran Chicago journalist.

“Jesse Spencer is a dynamic and versatile performer with an undeniable ability to seize an audience’s attention,” said Festival Founder and Artistic Director Michael Kutza.  “Performers like Spencer, who can develop a character over the course of many years, evolving and becoming increasingly complex as the series advances, possess a very special gift.  We are pleased to present him with this award for his artistic achievements on television.” 

In 2014, the Chicago International Film Festival Celebrates 50 years of honoring the best in television.  Other honorees this year include “CSI” Executive Producer Carol Mendelsohn, who will receive the Commitment to Excellence Award for Television, the production company STORY, which will receive this year’s Commitment to Excellence Award for Television Commercials, and the WTTW11 Audience Choice Award.  All awards will be presented at the Awards Ceremony on April 10.

An Australian native, Spencer made his American television debut in the critically-acclaimed Fox series “House,” playing Dr. Robert Chase opposite Hugh Laurie for all of the show's eight seasons until the series ended in May 2012. Spencer is currently starring in the NBC hit drama “Chicago Fire” as Matthew Casey, a strong, intuitive Lieutenant who leads the Truck company and is unwavering in his commitment to the job.

Spencer's film credits include a starring role in "Uptown Girls" with Brittany Murphy, the biopic "Swimming Upstream" with Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis, as well as Spike Lee's independent feature "Girl Is in Trouble."  He has worked extensively in the U.K. and Australia, both in television and theater.  He starred in the acclaimed BBC drama "Death in Holy Orders" and has had starring roles in the BBC adaptation of "Lorna Doone" and Hallmark's "Stranded."  He began his career starring in the long-running Australian soap, “Neighbours."
