He’s known for his role as Jameson “Jamie” Reagan in the hit CBS series Blue Bloods. But that seems to be all that Will Estes wants in his entertainment industry career – for now at least.

“I’m only interested in acting right now in terms of the entertainment industry,” Will declares.
Prior to joining Blue Bloods in 2010, Will Estes took various roles on other TV series. Which includes Full House, It Had to Be You, Boy Meets World, Kirk, and The Secret World of Alex Mack.

Also during the interview, Will Estes discusses his journey on Blue Blues since it began in 2010. “It’s been a blessing,” Will declares. He calls himself grateful to call the show “home” for the past decade. Estes then says that Jamie has evolved from rookie to veteran and now to sergeant. “And the synergistic creative process between actors and writers continues to make Blue Bloods what it is,” he continues.
When asked how he compares Season 1 Jamie to Season 11 Jamie, Will says he would use descriptive words like young, hopeful, idealist, and naive to describe season 1 of his character.
“In season 11, I would use words like experienced, capable, humbled, and persistent. I think he’s funnier now, too.”
Will Estes also says he finds a compliment from a Blue Bloods crew member to be both the most honest and infrequent. “They aren’t easily impressed from that ground floor vantage point.”

After a while, Will says he got used to the relationship. He then reveals he and Vanessa Ray, who plays Eddie on Blue Bloods, are close friends. “Vanessa is one of my favorite things about Blue Bloods. We are fast friends, we laugh all the time between takes. We have an incredible shorthand, and I love her.”
