by Keeli Parkey

“Blue Bloods” star Tom Selleck is an actor who is beloved by his fans and his co-stars.

During his decades-long career, he has also been the star of the television series “Magnum, P.I.” as well as such popular films as “Three Men and a Baby,” “Quigley Down Under,” and “Mr. Baseball” and more.

Selleck’s star power has been very obvious to his “Blue Bloods” co-stars since the show debuted on CBS in 2010. And, it has been obvious for positive reasons. The 76-year-old actor is no diva!

In fact, according to one of his co-stars, the cast of the hit CBS family crime drama has not spent enough time talking about Selleck’s talents as an actor. That co-star is Vanessa Ray.

She plays the daughter-in-law of Selleck’s character in the show. Ray’s character, Eddie Janko, is married to Jamie Reagan, who is played by Will Estes. Jamie is one of the sons of Selleck’s character, Frank Reagan. As fans of the show are aware, Frank is the commissioner of the New York City Police Department.

Vanessa Ray Said Tom Selleck is an ‘Amazing Actor’

Ray shared her very high opinion of Selleck during a 2018 interview with CBS 58 WDJT-Milwaukee. “He’s the best, Tom is like the coolest,” Ray said.

She then went on to describe what about her “Blue Bloods” co-star Tom Selleck that has often gone unnoticed during his career. That is talent as an actor.

“We get to work with this amazing actor, that’s something that we don’t talk about enough, we talk about this incredible career and all these things but he’s an amazing actor,” the actress also shared.

These comments “Blue Bloods” star Vanessa Ray made about Tom Selleck in 2018 aren’t the only good things she has had to say about the man who plays her father-in-law on television. More recently, the 40-year-old Eddie Janko actress talked about how Selleck’s advice made one scene in the show’s 12th season a “masterpiece.”

“He’s a total actor’s actor. So he would never give anybody notes, but he’ll give you like a, ‘You know, I was thinking that I was going to do it this way, and I wonder how your character would react if I did something this way,'” Ray also shared.

‘Blue Bloods’ Stars Will Estes and Sami Gayle Also Praised Tom Selleck in 2018

Unsurprisingly, Tom Selleck has also left an impression on other members of the “Blue Bloods” cast.

One of these people is Sami Gayle. She plays Nicky Reagan-Boyle, the granddaughter of Selleck’s character, Frank Reagan. “He has been such an influence in my life, not only in terms of helping me develop as an actor, but academically as I went through college,” Gayle said about Selleck.

Will Estes, who as previously said plays Frank’s son, Jamie Reagan in “Blue Bloods” also admires Tom Selleck. “He’s our leader on and off set,” Estes shared.
