‘Blue Bloods’: Bridget Moynahan Auditioned for Classic Show with One Line

by Joe Rutland

When it came time for Blue Bloods star Bridget Moynahan to audition for a classic show’s role, she simply did it with one line.

Moynahan, who plays Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan on the CBS police drama, actually played Natasha Naginsky on HBO’s Sex and the City.

The role of Mr. Big’s second wife (Chris Noth played “Mr. Big” John James Preston) gave the actress her first television role. Moynahan talked about how that role came about when she stopped by Live with Kelly & Ryan earlier in December.

Oh, the one line? “Nice to meet you.” Listen to the Blue Bloods star talk about it with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.

Moynahan recently appeared in an episode of the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That.

Don’t worry Blue Bloods fans. She is not leaving the Reagan family at all.

The CBS police drama is on hiatus from premiering new episodes.

‘Blue Bloods’ Star Just Didn’t Even Talk About Show Until Series Order

By the way, Moynahan does not let herself get too far ahead of what might happen.

The Blue Bloods actress talked about this in a 2013 interview. Moynahan chatted with Steve Adubato on One on One. This interview took place when the show was in its fourth season on CBS.

Moynahan was asked how she handles rejection.

“Um, I think I’m OK with it,” the Blue Bloods star said. “I kind of go in with everything of, ‘Well, I’m going to go do my best and most likely I’m not going to get it.’ There’s a lot of people going out for the same role.”

Adubato asked Moynahan if she goes into auditions with a negative mindset.

“That I’m not going to get it,” she said. Adubato asks her, “You don’t walk in, ‘Hey, this is mine?'”

Moynahan said she does go in with that attitude “but I don’t marry myself and start spending the money that I think I might be earning.

“Or, like calling the press and say, ‘Hey, I got this role,'” she said. “I really, even with (Blue Bloods), I did not talk about it until it went to series, because you never know.”

Anyone who has watched a Blue Bloods episode knows that those family dinner scenes are very popular.

Why is this so?

Moynahan talked about it in an interview with CBS This Morning.

“I think it’s the moment that people A) get to see the characters as real humans and the most vulnerable because you’re with your family,” she said. “But I also think it’s a moment they reflect and think, ‘Gosh, I wish we were able to do that.'”
