Why Vanessa Rojas From Chicago P.D. Looks So Familiar

Read the article to know why Vanessa Rojas from Chicago P.D. looks so familiar!

With a case-load extending to nine action-packed seasons, “Chicago P.D.” has earned its place as one of NBC’s preeminent series. Zeroing in on the high-risk professional lives and often tempestuous personal challenges of its detectives and beat cops, the show has earned love from fans for its gritty take on the police procedural.

Portrayed by actor Lisseth Chavez, streetwise undercover cop Vanessa Rojas joined the 21st District team of “Chicago P.D.” in the show’s seventh season. And while Chavez only spent a single season on “Chicago P.D.,” fans may well have had a déjà vu the moment they saw her. Rojas appeared on both “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago Med” in addition to “Chicago P.D.” There’s also the possibility that they’ve seen Chavez the actor in one of the other TV shows or movies she has been a part of.

Considering the length of the series’ run and the number of personalities that have come and gone over time, tracking the comings and goings of the various characters can be tricky. So, even the most attentive fan could be excused for seeing “Chicago P.D.” intel unit member Vanessa Rojas and wondering why she looks so familiar.

Chavez’s early career includes an episode of Shameless

Chavez’s screen career began in 2009 when she made an appearance on the reality show “True Beauty,” which chronicled the world of beauty pageants. She would then go on to land her first small role as an actor in an episode of the short-lived series “The Baby” in 2011. After some downtime, things began moving quickly.

In 2015, Chavez got a notable one-episode role on Showtime’s family drama “Shameless”. In the Season 5 episode “Crazy Love,” Chavez portrayed Marita, a high school bully with a large chip on her shoulder, and a sketchy past that may have included some trouble with the law. Debbie Gallagher (Emma Kenney), who Marita and the other kids at school refer to as “Deadly Debbie,” gets on the bully’s bad side. But considering Marita was only a one-episode part, it’s clear who came out on top in that conflict.

After “Murder in the First,” Chavez began to appear in bigger roles on more high-profile shows.

Fans could’ve seen her in Grey’s Anatomy and S.W.A.T.

In 2017, she had a very special part in the Norman Lear hit “One Day at a Time”. On the episode “A Snowman’s Tale,” she played a younger version of Oscar-winning film and TV legend Rita Moreno’s character Lydia during a flashback. Chavez followed that up with a guest spot on the iconic medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” as a patient worried about the health of her newborn baby. That same year, she was also part of the ensemble of the cult-thriller “One of Us.”

2018 saw Chavez returning to a familiar genre when she guest-starred on a very timely episode of the first season of the crime drama “S.W.A.T.” Titled “Fences,” the episode sees the police officer characters in deep trouble after they unlawfully give information about an undocumented immigrant to ICE.
