Fans of “Blue Bloods” have watched Sami Gayle – and her character Nicky Reagan-Boyle – grow from a youngster to a young woman.
The now 25-year-old actress took to Instagram recently to show off a new outfit. The adorable blue jean outfit, complete with cute high heels, and a colorful mask, looks like the perfect thing to wear on a summer day or night out on the town. It’s also an ensemble that other members of her family would also like, according to what she posted.
“If the shoe fits… Something I’m sure you’ve noticed is that I love fashion. For me, it’s a way to express our individuality. Many of you ask how I’d describe my style. Personally, I follow one rule (but to each their own — the point is to differ!),” the “Blue Bloods” star posted.
So, what is this very important rule?
According to Gayle, it is: “Don’t wear anything my grandmother would not approve of. She’d definitely approve of these.”
We agree Sami! And so do her Instagram followers. The post by the young “Blue Bloods” actress had almost 2,500 likes and almost 150 comments as of the afternoon of Sunday, June 27.
‘Blue Bloods’ Actress Sami Gayle Shared Her Thoughts About Growing Up While On the Show
When Sami Gayle began playing Nikki Reagan-Boyle on “Blue Bloods,” she was only 14 years old. Being a star on television is difficult for most actors. However, Gayle has had a positive experience during her time on the hit CBS family drama.
Gayle talked about growing up on the show during an interview in 2017.
“Oh my goodness, well when I watch reruns, it’s crazy to see me at 14 years old and to now have just turned 21, it’s been quite the whirlwind. But look at the people I get to go to work and see every day,” the “Blue Bloods” actress said. “I mean I have grown up surrounded by the most consummate professionals and role models and a second mother in Bridget (Moynahan). … She is the most elegant mother…other than my own.”
In addition to making her a star, working on “Blue Bloods” has taught Sami Gayle a lot about herself and about acting.
“But I’ve learned so much about the craft and what I do,” Gayle said. “But also what it means to be a good person and have a life outside of what you do onset. And also to become family with the people you share the set with.”
Unsurprisingly, her “Blue Bloods” costars have been very protective of Sami Gayle. In fact, she said in 2018 that some of her fellow actors made sure her dates were worthy of her. Moynahan, Tom Selleck, and Donnie Wahlberg watched out for her. And, she referred to her “Blue Bloods” costars as “a whole other” family.
