Kara Killmer

Sylvie Brett, "Chicago Fire"

Kara Killmer returns this season as Sylvie Brett, a young paramedic who transferred to Firehouse 51 in the third season of “Chicago Fire” from a rural fire department in Indiana after the sudden break up of her engagement.  

Born and raised in Texas, Killmer graduated with a BFA in performance from Baylor University.  

She moved to Los Angeles and was selected from thousands of young actors to star in the Hulu original series, “If I Can Dream,” a show created by Simon Fuller that explored the lives of aspiring actors.  Following the series, she was immediately cast in the leading role in the independent film “Beyond The Mask,” and she followed the film with a role in the USA pilot “Horizon,” produced by Gale Ann Hurd.

Shortly thereafter, she was cast in her first leading role in the NBC pilot “Tin Man.”  

When Killmer is not working, she enjoys writing, painting, hiking and spending time with family and friends.
