An Emotional “Blue Bloods” Family Dinner

The Reagan family dinner is an essential part of “Blue Bloods.” In an interview with Pop Culture, Marisa Ramirez discusses what her first family dinner scene was like.

Joining the show just after her grandmother died, Ramirez had a hard time keeping her emotions in. Her grandmother was a huge fan of Tom Selleck.

“I so badly wanted to say something to Tom about the fact that, ‘My grandmother was such a huge fan of yours,'” she says. “But I knew I wouldn’t have been able to get out the words without crying. [I] didn’t want to look like a basket case at family dinner, but I kept thinking about her while I was there.”

Ramirez says that the cast and crew’s welcoming nature made her feel comfortable on set.

“And it almost made me feel more comfortable and calm, and just was able to really take in the surroundings and the warmth and the fact that they welcomed me there.”
