NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The hit CBS series Blue Bloods is back for a new season.
The show tells the story of the Reagan clan – a close knit family of New York City cops. The sole daughter of the family – the only one not in uniform – is Erin Reagan Boyle, played by Bridget Moynahan.
“I think what the audience really gravitates towards is the family,” Moynahan said of the series. “All the characters have very diverse and complicated personal lives and that’s what we get to show every week.”
On the show, Moynahan plays a single working mother. In real life, the actress has a child with former flame, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
She said her off-screen experiences help her in portraying her on-screen character.
“I think a lot of women are working and raising a child,” she said. “Unfortunately, more are doing it on their own. so I think a lot of people can relate to that role.”
