VIEWERS cannot imagine NBC drama Chicago Fire without the Battalion Chief of Firehouse 51 Wallace Boden, played by actor Eamonn Walker.
After nearly a decade of watching the character’s loyalty to the firehouse, fans wonder if actor Eamonn Walker will be back to play him for the next season?
Who is Chicago Fire character Wallace Boden?
As one of the few remaining original Chicago Fire characters, Chief Wallace Boden is universally celebrated by fans for his reliability and leadership.
A fan took to Twitter, writing: “Wallace Boden, best boss and work dad in one Chicago.”
Fans love Boden’s attitude and willingness to protect his loved ones.
Another tweet reads, “Firehouse 51 wouldn’t be the same without chief Boden.”
In the season 10 premiere, Boden gets the promotion he’s been wanting. As the New Deputy District Chief, it is assumed that Boden’s office will no longer be at Firehouse 51.
Is Eamonn Walker walking out?
Does Chief Wallace Boden’s new career path mean the same for actor Eamonn Walker?
Before the season 10 premiere, Walker talked to King 5 News about his time on the show.
Walker said it’s “a dream come true to be a part of something good and something great,” and that he feels “honored.”
Leading producer of Chicago Fire Derek Haas talked to TVInsider about what to expect of the characters in season 10 of Chicago Fire.
“Boden cares deeply for the firefighters of Firehouse 51, but he also knows he can make major improvements to the CFD,” Haas said. “He’ll balance the two.”
Looks like Chief Boden will be able to handle his new position along with his relationships with the firefighters he leaves behind.
You can watch Chicago Fire on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
