This is what Jesse Spencer and Kara Killmer’s relationship looks like in real life

Sylvie Brett and Matthew Casey – also known as “Brettsey” on the show – are a favorite relationship of Chicago Fire fans. But with Casey not only toying with Brett’s feelings on the show, but fans as well, fans are now wondering what these two actors’ relationship is like in real life.

Since Chicago Fire debuted in 2012, Matthew Casey, played by Jesse Spencer, has been a mainstay of the series. In the role of Casey, Spencer portrayed the serious lieutenant for the first six seasons before taking on the role of captain beginning in season 6. Sylvie Brett, played by Kara Killmer, joined the show as a paramedic for Firehouse 51 in season three. But while the show follows the jobs of these dedicated firefighters at Firehouse 51, the show doesn’t stop following the intertwined love lives of these first responders — including these two as “Brettsey.”

While it took a while for things to warm up between Casey and Brett, sparks officially flew when the two first got together in the show’s eighth season. But although their relationship is the end game for many One Chicago fans after Casey hung up his uniform and left the show for the final time, the Season 10 finale left fans on a cliffhanger, wondering if these two are still together or not. Which left many fans wondering if the “Brettsey” relationship reflected Spencer and Killmer’s real-life relationship with Spencer leaving the show?

Chicago Fire fans are certainly concerned because “Brettsey”‘s on-screen relationship isn’t going too well — leading many to wonder if Jesse Spencer and Kara Killmer’s relationship is still going strong in real life ?

At the end of Season 10, fans saw Spencer return as Matt Casey after leaving the show mid-season, according to NBC Insider. On the show, Casey had decided to leave the firehouse and go to Oregon to raise his late best friend’s children while he and Brett entered a long-distance relationship. Offscreen, Spencer lamented his relationship with Killmer when discussing his departure, telling TV Line in 2021, “It’s been difficult because I really like Kara. We’ve built a really, really nice relationship. I loved working with her.”

Speaking to Starry Magazine in 2020, Killmer expressed similar sentiments — revealing that she loves working with Spencer and will do whatever it takes to keep it that way. “If they’re in a romantic relationship, that means I’m more than great to work with Jesse. If they remain friends, it means I get to work with Jesse more than what I want. Whatever scenario allows me to work with Jesse, that’s what I want.” But since Spencer left the show in 2021, where do these two stand today?

Jesse Spencer and Kara Killmer’s strong friendship

While Jesse Spencer and Kara Killmer are no longer Chicago Fire colleagues and their relationship as Matt Casey and Sylvie Brett is shaky, these two remain strong — but only as friends.

In fact, both Killmer and Spencer have their own off-screen relationships as Spencer is married to Kali Woodruff Carr and Killmer is married to fellow actor Andrew Cheney. Even though they have other relationships, that doesn’t mean there isn’t mutual love and respect between these two! Exclusively releasing a behind-the-scenes look, Killmer took to her Instagram in May to post a video of her and Spencer that lightened the hearts of all “Brettsey” fans when she captioned it “Best of All Time.” The post featured the pair dancing side-by-side at Chicago Fire’s Stellaride wedding, and had Brettsey fans loving every moment of it!

And since these two are just friends and not really dating, what’s in store for them on Chicago Fire? Now that Spencer’s character is just moving to Oregon — and not getting killed — there’s a chance he could return to the fire department and back to Brett, but not anytime soon. “That’s a three-year commitment that he made when he left this season,” Haas told Deadline. “He’s not going back to 51 permanently anytime soon.”
