With nearly 100 episodes of CHICAGO FIRE under his belt, series star Daniel Kyri (who plays firefighter Darren Ritter) has gotten to do a lot of things during his tenure on the long-running NBC series.

“There’s always a handful, really, of gems in every season—just stuff that I love doing either the challenge of it or I think it’s cool,” Kyri tells Give Me My Remote in the video below.

When it comes to his favorite part of season 11, which concluded in May, the actor points to the arc that kicked off in “Run Like Hell,” as Ritter accidentally discovered a cheating politician (played by David S. Lee) at the scene of a fire.

“We sort of see Ritter stand up for himself in a different way than we have before,” Kyri explains. “There is a storyline with a certain politician and his goings-on…it was just really fun to play with a different side of Ritter that hasn’t been so fully on display before, where he’s really going toe-to-toe with this guy. And so that was just really fun.”

“Even though Ritter faces a little bit of some consequences later on…I still think it was pretty cool and pretty fun,” he continues. “So that was…something I got to do this season that I really love.”

The actor was also clear about his hopes for Ritter’s storyline in season 12: “Now, more than ever, I do believe that that sort of representation and real, unflinching look at what queer love can actually be like…is very important,” he previously shared.
