Blue Bloods stars Will Estes and Vanessa Ray, who play Officers Jamie Reagan and Edit “Eddie” Janko is two of our favorite characters on the show and we just love their relationship!!
Will and Vanessa audition stories for the show is two of the beat audition stories we’ve ever heard so we had to share them with you guys in honor of the premiere.
In an interview with WATCH, the two were asked the million dollar question
Do you remember your very first auditions to play Jamie and Eddie?
Vanessa shared: I auditioned on tape and then went to meet with CBS in Los Angeles. The day I went in for my callback, the casting director got stuck in an elevator and they were like, “Maybe we should reschedule for tomorrow.”
But sometimes as an actor you’re like, No! I’m ready right now and I don’t want to come back tomorrow. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow, but I know today I can get this job.
So I waited on the CBS lot for two hours until the fire department got the casting director out of the elevator and then I was like, “Ready?” And I got it!
Will shared: I auditioned for what felt like 11 times, but it was actually just four. I remember the script was my favorite thing I’d read all year. I don’t think I ever told anyone this, but I was totally broke. After reading with Leonard [Goldberg, Blue Bloods’ executive producer], I remember he said, “I believed you.” That was an endearing vote of confidence.”
The two got married in Season 9 and been holding strong, heading into the Season 13 premiere the two will face tons of obstacles this season and we can’t wait to see how they both make things work.
