Aussie Jesse Spencer, 34, heats things up on the May 15 season finale of the NBC series Chicago Fire and chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing” …

Last Sunburn
I’m really good at not getting sunburned because I wear zinc cream. On vacation in Indonesia, I ran out of skin-colored zinc, so I used green and locals called me Hulk.

Last Splurge
I bought a ’68 Camaro last year. My first car was a ’69 Holden, which is an Aussie car. I’ve been looking for a muscle car for ages. [I call it] the silver bullet. It’s beautiful.

Last Romantic Gesture
I bought my girlfriend [Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira, 26] two presents today. She was in Brazil for her birthday, so I’ll have something for her when she comes back.

Last Thing I Cooked
I cooked myself scrambled eggs. I work 14-hour days on-set, and when you go home to an empty apartment, the last thing you’re going to do is cook a meal. I eat cereal, eggs or smoothies. That’s my routine.
