Jocelyn Zamudio, a Waukegan native, landed a guest star role on a Chicago P.D. this week.
Jocelyn, who presently lives in Chicago, is a graduate of UIC where she majored in Theatre, minored in Law and Society, and was a student athlete on the cheer team.
“This is far from an individual achievement. This is a win for my parents, coaches, community, and agents—it’s a culmination of all our hard work,” said Jocelyn. “I’m proud to be the second woman and first Latina from Waukegan to earn a guest star role and I hope to shed light on all the many other talented individuals from there.”
The pandemic started only a year and a half after she graduated. Roles were scarce and harder to land for everyone—but even more so for those with less professional experience. Prior to the pandemic, Jocelyn landed a co-star role on Showtime’s The Chi and had steady work as a theatre actor. She knew she had the talent and work ethic to make it in this industry—she just needed the right opportunity.
Not much can be revealed about this weeks Chicago P.D. episode—but there will be blood, and there will be tears. See exclusive pics from the upcoming episode which will air March 31, 2021 at 9 P.M. CST on NBC.
Chicago P.D. produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment.
