John Schlossberg, the only grandson of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy, made his acting debut in the crime drama series "Blue Bloods."

Schlossberg took to Instagram and shared a photograph of himself along with his fellow actors. He appeared in the season 8 finale of the show.

Schlossberg is the son of Caroline Bouvier Kennedy and Edwin Schlossberg. He is the only grandson of the 35th President of the United States of America.


"I don’t make the rules, I just pretend to enforce them – Cash [sic] me tonight on season 8 finale of Blue Bloods my dream come true!! Best show in the entire world," Schlossberg captioned his Instagram post.

Comic Book reported that the eight seasons of the crime drama would stream on Netflix, which gives the fans an opportunity to "relive all the twists and turns from the first episodes" without Danny Reagan’s wife, Linda.


All the 22 episodes of the show from the 2017 to 2018 season were available for streaming on the online video watching platform.

The eighth season of the show begins with the events following the shocking death of Linda Reagan. A source informed that the death plot was fitted into the show because the actress did not renew her contract.


Since the actress did not even return to shoot a death scene, the story was adjusted to show that she was killed in a helicopter crash offscreen.

Another report from ET Online suggested that Schlossberg is a student of law at Harvard. He wants to follow in the footsteps of his famous grandfather and make his family proud.


According to Schlossberg, he has a lot to "figure out" as he "makes his own way" in the world.

He made his first TV appearance alongside his mother on the "Today" show. During the presentation, the duo discussed Schlossberg’s potential future in politics.


Schlossberg has always shown a keen interest in the family business, and he considers family tradition to be of high importance.

He has traveled to Japan in the past to visit his mother, who was the then U.S. Ambassador to the country. They toured the Fukushima nuclear plant and visited an orphanage.


Schlossberg first made name for himself when he co-founded ReLightNY at the tender age of 14. He then aimed to provide energy-efficient light bulbs to low-income housing developments.

He graduated from Yale University and has a degree in history and is passionate about politics. He takes an active part in various philanthropic causes, following the famous footsteps of his grandfather and mother.

His grandfather, former President Kennedy, was famous for donating his presidential and legislative salaries to various charities.

Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, while his motorcade was driving through Dallas, Texas. He was pronounced dead just half an hour after the attack.
