by Courtney Blackann

“Blue Bloods” actress Sami Gayle was recently enjoying a day out on the town in New York City and she made an unlikely friend. In an Instagram post, the actress shared a piece of street art in the form of an animal.

The colorful creature seems to be on par with the holiday season. With sparkly blues and greens, the cool art project is something Gayle said she really appreciates about the Big Apple.

“Casual friend sitting next to me! The creativity around NYC never ceases to amaze me…” Gayle captioned the post.

Dressed in a black overcoat and hat, Gayle poses with her new “casual friend” amid a chilly-looking background.

Creativity is something the “Blue Bloods” actress thrives on. Prior to joining the cast of the show as a Reagan, Gayle appeared on several Broadway and off-Broadway shows. The 25-year-old began her career early portraying Baby June opposite Patti LuPone in “Gypsy.” She also dabbled in the soap opera world on “As the World Turns” and starred on Netflix’s original production “Candy Jar.”

The actress most recently showed up looking bright herself at the “Dexter: New Blood” premiere, which just aired last week. The highly anticipated show reprises Dexter Morgan as he embarks on a new life in upstate New York. Gayle’s appearance at the premiere drew lots of praise from her fans.

“Blue Bloods” Actress Opens Up About Vulnerability

Sharing through social media can be therapeutic. Sami Gayle often opens up and shares her thoughts on social media platforms.

Recently, she posted a message about being vulnerable and learning to live her best life.

“Lately, I’ve found myself reflecting on moments when I haven’t taken action to shield myself from vulnerability. After all, when we put ourselves out there, whether at work, in our personal lives, etc., we open ourselves up to the possibility that things will not work out, the actress wrote in a post on Instagram.

She went on to say:

“But, as a friend of mine reminded me yesterday, the result is that we often forego potentially wonderful experiences and opportunities, just because we’re afraid to fail.”

The “Blue Bloods” star shared a video of herself playing basketball and discussed fears we all go through.

“In the end, if we try and fail, we won’t regret having exercised courage… the only thing we might regret is not having tried in the first place.

“So as we think about the week to come, let’s figure out how we can celebrate and embrace vulnerability instead of shying away from it… I bet we’ll make some slam dunks along the way,” Gayle said along with the post.
