Abigail Hawk on ‘Blue Bloods’

Hawk was not an original on Blue Bloods, but her character has become one of the more interesting on the show. We know what the character is now, but what did. it look like for Hawk when she first took on the role? She told Starry Mag, “Originally, she did not have a last name. She did not have an age. She did not even have a gender. She did not have a race. She did not have an anything. She was Either detective Mel or Melissa. So, no first name. Definitely not my first name. I got the role and about two to three episodes in Tom [Selleck] decided to change it to Abigail because he thought Melissa was too ordinary, which I guess is a compliment – so I’ll take it.”

So, that was that. There was not a lot there early on, but things changed in a hurry.

She continued, “Then he cleared with the lawyers the last name Baker. He obviously thought it was very important for me to have a last name since I was a person on the show. So, they gave me a full-fledged identity and that was all him.”

How The Show Changed Her Life

She concluded, “It’s changed my life! I went in very green. I had lived in New York for six or seven years. I had a retail survival job that understood I was an actor and let me audition on lunch breaks and things like that. They were lovely and it was stable. I had my health insurance and my 401K, but I wasn’t being fulfilled and I wasn’t thriving. I went on this audition for a new show. There was nothing remarkable about her and it was just supposed to be this one episode, but Tom liked me and so he brought me back a second time and then he brought me back again.”

Abigal certainly paid her dues and now she stars on Blue Bloods.
