Sami Gayle’s Mentor

Sami Gayle is not just known for her character on “Blue Bloods.” The actress was in the 2011 film Detachment, playing the role of a prostitute named Erica. She credits actor Adrien Brody for becoming her biggest mentor in the industry. The two performed alongside each other in the intense film.

“Adrien has been the biggest mentor to me so far and continues to mentor me offscreen. Honestly, working with him felt like I was going to Julliard. But instead of going for four years, I went for four weeks,” she says. “He was like the Albert Einstein of acting professors and I was a sponge soaking it all in. It was like a flood and I took as much as I could.”

She recalls positive memories about working with Brody.

“Every single day, Adrien said to me, going into a scene, ‘It has to be you and me against the world in this scene,’ and what he taught me is the importance of intimacy between the actors in a scene … I think Adrien is such a present actor that it was easy to portray the feelings that I had to portray in the film.”

The ‘Blue Bloods’ Star’s Challenge

Gayle was concerned about playing Erica at first. The “Blue Bloods” star did not know how to feel about the possibility of performing nude. However, both Brody’s mentorship and the film’s writing made her feel comfortable throughout the experience. It turned out that nudity was not required in any of her scenes.

“It was amazing to take on this role and have Adrien there to mentor me through the entire process.”

Nicky Reagan fans can catch the sweet “Blue Bloods” star in this completely different film now on Amazon Prime Video.
