Sophia Bush played privileged and rebellious high-school cheerleading captain-turned fashion designer Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill for almost a decade. But while it may take time for some fans to wrap their heads around her new role as a street-smart cop, her Chicago P.D. alter ego isn’t all that much of a stretch.

“I have a concealed weapons permit in 32 states and sleep with a loaded gun under my bed,” she told reporters earlier this month. “This feels much more close to sort of my soul than anything else ever has before.”

Buh-bye Brooke Davis, indeed. On Chicago P.D. (Wednesdays, 10/9c, NBC), Bush is hundreds of miles away from her old Tree Hill stomping grounds both literally and figuratively as Det. Erin Lindsay, a former confidential informant for Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) from the wrong side of the law who has since risen quickly in the ranks up to the Intelligence Unit. “That’s where all her street smarts come in,” Bush said of her character’s sketchy past. “It does inform a lot of her work though because the thing that I’ve learned from spending so much time with these undercover officers is that your intuition has to be so on point to be good at your job. … Lindsay comes from the street so she already knows how all these people work.”

It’s that same intuition that led Bush to the project after her long run on One Tree Hill and, more recently, the short-lived sitcom Partners. “I felt it in my bones,” she said. “I got four pages [of the script] and I was like, ‘I know who this person is. I didn’t have to think about it. I just knew she who she was.’ I thought if I can be so deeply connected to something in four pages, I have to read this script, I have to do this show.”

That connection has already come in handy for Bush, especially it comes to figuring out Lindsay’s mysterious life before her turn as a C.I. “[The writers] had told me a few things, and then I sort of came to them a few weeks later and was like, ‘Listen, in my brain these are all the things that have happened to her and this is the experience that has sort of shaped her. I just want to know if I’m making sh– up that is so out of left field,” Bush recalled. She wasn’t. “[Series writer Tim Walsh] was like, ‘Literally, 90 percent of what you have said to me is sh– we have written for you. This is not normal.’”

More of Lindsay’s history will be uncovered as time goes on. “It won’t happen quickly,” Bush said. “It will happen in layers, and there’s some great stuff with Lindsay and Halstead in Episode 6. She gives him the most backstory that she’s given to anyone and it still just kind of scratches the surface. It just talks about her life from when she met Voight. She still doesn’t give him anything about who she was or where she was before that.”

The new trailer for NBC’s Chicago PD has been released! Thanks so much to Bri for the heads up!

She recently hosted the VH1 Do Something Awards on July 31, and now Sophia Bush is dishing on her community service efforts.

During a recent Q&A session with ELLE magazine, the former “One Tree Hill” star dished about becoming a spokesperson for Give With Target and her reaction to meeting the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Bush’s interview below. For more, be sure to visit ELLE!

On teaming up with Target:
“I was joking a couple of months ago saying, ‘If I had millions of dollars, I would just be working on education in America.’ Then, a group of us were having dinner for Lauren Bush Lauren’s FEED launch with Target, and I was talking about education. One of the creatives from the office was like, ‘Do you know what we do in September? We give away millions of dollars.’ It was sort of a perfect thing. Target commits five percent of its profits to charity every year.”

On her other career aspirations:
“I mean, who doesn’t secretly want to be a musician and make music like Johnnyswim or The Lumineers and just play the guitar acoustically all day? But if I wasn’t an actor, I’d probably be working in journalism. [I would write about] Current events: issue-based, expository things happening in the world. Some are hard, some are uplifting, some are really inspiring. I love that whole space. I just spoke at a conference for 1,500 young people about what it means to be a global citizen—to hold a passport that gives you entry into every country in the world. That’s a luxury we have now. If it were my job to run around and explore that, I would be pretty excited.”

On meeting Michelle:
“I just froze. I died. I’ve met [the President] once before, and I’ve worked with them on a few things, but I hadn’t met Michelle. [When I was introduced to] the First Lady, she said, ‘Well, look at you with your bangs! You know I’m just trying to be you!’ And pointed to my bangs and back at her face. And then I died. And I realized I was just staring at her. I think I actually audibly said, ‘I love you.’ And then I realized I was being awkward, and I turned around and walked away. Some Secret Service person was going to be like, ‘You’re having a seizure, you have to go.’ It was a pretty great compliment.”

On politics:
“I would like to work on policy, but I find politics to be incredibly frustrating and slow-moving, and all of that bureaucracy and red tape just makes me crazy. I would be the first one to show up and just start yelling, ‘This is ridiculous!’ I don’t know if that would be the thing [to do]. I’d sort of prefer to affect it, outside in. We’ll see—who knows. Ask me in ten years!”
