Glimpse into 'Chicago Med' Star Nick Gehlfuss' Marriage to Lilian Matsuda
Nick Gehlfuss, who is best known as the hunky doctor on "Chicago Med," got married to his girlfriend in complete mystery.
Nick and Lilian Matsuda tied the knot secretly in Ohio in 2016, but the actor finally decided to break the news to PEOPLE.
"I wanted to invite a lot of my cast mates, but, because we're a franchise, I would have had to invite the entire Chicago franchise," he explained. "I started on P.D. and I went to Fire, and now with Justice, it would have been crazy."
Nick added, "It rained that day in the morning, which is good luck. And then it was perfect after that. And it was on Friday the 13th, and the next day it dropped twenty degrees and then Sunday, blizzard, snow on the way here."
For their wedding day, Nick, who never had a core group of companions, gave Lilian pearl earrings. During the interview, the actor also opened up about their honeymoon.
"Besides the one we're having right now, we're going to go to Japan probably at some point," he said.

Man and woman are like the earth, that brings forth flowers in summer, and love, but underneath is rock. Older than flowers, older than ferns, older than foraminiferae, older than plasm altogether is the soul underneath. And when, throughout all the wild chaos of love slowly a gem forms, in the ancient, once-more-molten rocks of two human hearts, two ancient rocks, a man's heart and a woman's, that is the crystal of peace, the slow hard jewel of trust, the sapphire of fidelity. The gem of mutual peace emerging from the wild chaos of love. -DH Lawrence #matsufuss2016
Nick likewise posted romantic photographs taken from his wedding on social media, according to Daily Mail.
The actor once correlated his work to his life during an interview in 2015, The Detroit News reported.
"My personality is I enjoy constant change and mixing it up," he said. "I get bored too easily. With acting, you don't. The thing I love about it the most is that becoming a better actor really means I'm becoming a better person."
According to him, the reason was that an actor should ceaselessly study the world around him. Nick said, "It broadens you as a human being, makes you more sympathetic and empathetic."
"You become really at one with your surroundings because this is my classroom. And so I can go to school every minute every day if I want to," he added.
Nick was an athlete when he was in junior. However, one of his instructors urged him to try out for a school play, and that's how the role of Red Dog turned into his first acting credit.
