Most of the time, Blue Bloods fans see Abigail Hawk offering insights or suggestions to Frank Reagan as part of his “dream team” of advisers.
Hawk, who plays Abigail Baker on the CBS police drama, dropped this sweet picture on her Instagram account on Sunday.
Take a look at Hawk in a snap that shows her in a different light than her Blue Bloods character.
The song lyrics, in case you could not guess, are from the song “Pure Imagination.” It debuted in the 1971 movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder as Wonka. The song was written by British composers Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley.
As for Hawk, she can be seen every Friday night on Blue Bloods. Yes, her boss is NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck. Hawk is joined on Frank’s “dream team” by Garrett Moore, played by Gregory Jbara, and Sid Gormley, played by Robert Clohessy.
Right now, Blue Bloods will not be airing any new episodes before the year’s end in 2021. But you better believe there will be new ones in 2022.
What trouble will Frank run into in future episodes? Will Erin Reagan, played by Bridget Moynahan, run for the District Attorney job after all? And will Henry Reagan, played by Len Cariou, stay around or get shipped out to a retirement community?
We don’t know any of those answers.
Still, Blue Bloods will come back with a bang next year. Catch it on CBS on Fridays at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central.
‘Blue Bloods’ Star Talks About Her Character Early On In TV Series
Would you believe that Blue Bloods star Abigail Hawk didn’t have an idea about her character early on in the series?
We all know that Abigail Baker has a key role in the show.
But her name at the start was really Melissa. She really didn’t have a part but Selleck stepped in and fixed that up.
Hawk says that “originally, she did not have a last name” in an interview with Starrymag. “She did not have an age, she did not even have a gender, [and] she did not have a race, she did not have an anything.”
Well, what was she? Hawk said that “she was either detective Mel or Melissa. So, no first name. Definitely not my first name.”
So, Tom Selleck fixed that as he realized a few episodes in just how much detail, or how little we should say, there was of Hawk’s character. He went to work and, after two or three episodes into the series, Hawk had a full-fledged character in Abigail Baker.
