‘Blue Bloods’ Star Sami Gayle Throws It Back to Her Dance Routine as a 6-Year-Old

by Quentin Blount

If you think actress Sami Gayle is cute on Blue Bloods, just wait until you see six-year-old Sami Gayle putting on an impressive dance routine.

If you have been following along with the popular CBS show Blue Bloods, then you exactly who Sami Gayle is. As a matter of fact, the 25-year-old actress has basically grown up on the set of the show, first appearing on it when she was just 14. Of course, Blue Bloods is not short on star power. Gayle stars alongside several other big names like Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, and Will Estes. Gayle plays Nicky Reagan Boyle, the daughter of Erin Reagan (Moynahan) and the granddaughter of Frank Reagan (Selleck).

There is no denying that Sami Gayle has come a long way since her journey on the police procedural first got started. And when we say a long way, we mean it. It turns out that Gayle was a competitive dancer in her early years and she recently posted the proof on social media.

“I present to you mini me, age 6, shaking it like no one is watching :)” Gayle captioned the adorable clip. “Thank you, @nicole_pollock_, for sending this my way and for keeping this for so long.”

Fellow ‘Blue Bloods’ Star Comments on Sami Gayle’s Cute Video

Speaking of Blue Bloods stars, even fellow actress Abigail Hawk made her way to the comments section of Sami Gayle’s post. For those who don’t know, on the show Hawk plays Abigail “Abby” Baker, a detective with the New York City Police Department. In addition to that, she also serves as the top aide to police commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck). She is responsible for setting the commissioner’s official schedule, and nobody gets to see him without going through her first.

“Oh em gee Sami!!!!!!!!” Hawk wrote in the comments.

Nicole Pollock, the woman Gayle credited the video to, commented as well.

“Always the brightest shining star!!” she said.

And finally, a third fan left a message saying, “OMG!!!! Seriously???? You are the cutest thing ever!!!!! I love this!!”

Sami Gayle Living Her Life to the Fullest

We love everybody on the cast of Blue Bloods, but when it comes right down to it, Sami Gayle has to be one of our favorites. Not only is she a talented actress (and evidently a talented dancer), she’s also an incredibly hard worker. How hard you ask? Well, she studied for her college degree simultaneously while filming the show.

“We shot Wednesday to Sunday schedule,” Gayle told Hollywood Life back in 2018. “I did this for about seven weeks. On Sunday night, we’d finish shooting, I don’t know maybe at three or four in the morning. I’d get on a plane at 6 a.m., I would come to New York, shoot ‘Blue Bloods, in the morning, then I would go to school.”

Fun fact: Gayle actually attended the same college in real life that she did on the show — Columbia University.
