Monica Raymund is one of the stars of the hit show Chicago Fire, and she seems to be on fire herself. She’s been in the business for a while, but she’s never been as famous as she is now. We think that her star is just now rising and that it will continue to do so for quite a while. She is more famous, more popular and more in-demand than ever before, and it is because her acting skills are on fire. We wanted to get to know a bit more about the actress, so we did a little digging.
She’s a Florida girl
She was born and raised in the beach community of St. Petersburg, Florida. She lived there her entire life, focusing her entire career on acting even as a child.
Her family is successful
She clearly learned the value of hard work from her family. Her father is the CEO and chairman of Tech Data Corp. and her mother is the co-founder of a famous dance studio in Florida.
She went to good schools
Her family was well off growing up, and Monica Raymund went to the best schools money could buy. She attended the Shorecrest Preparatory School and followed that up with four years at Julliard in New York City.
She’s been married
She married a man by the name of Neil Patrick Stewart in 2011, but she divorced him in 2014. There is no real official reason as to why their marriage did not work out.
However, the fact that she has come out as a bisexual woman might have something to do with that. Raymund’s friends and family have known for many years, but she was never publicly out until recently.
