“Blue Bloods” is a police drama followed by many fans who love the Reagan family. Before acting on the series, some famous actors started off on soap operas, let’s have a look at who they are.


Before appearing on television, some actors started off on Broadway and other avenues. Six “Blue Bloods” stars began their careers on soap operas before starring in the police drama.

“Blue Bloods” season 10 was released on September 27, 2019, and concluded on May 1, 2020. CBS then announced the renewal for season 11 but production got sidelined due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease.

On “Blue Bloods” Ramirez plays the role of Maria Baez, however, she started off on several soap operas. In 1997, she appeared on “Port Charles” as Gia Campbell.

From 2000 to 2002, the actress starred in “General Hospital” as the same character. She later appeared on “The Young and the Restless” as Carmen Mesta whose role ended in 2007 when she was killed.



Gayle had her first television appearance on “As the World Turns” where she starred as Hayden Lawson. She was a 13-year-old teenager at the time and she only starred on three episodes.

Gayle, who played Nicky Reagan-Boyle on “Blue Bloods,” has since been rumored to be on her way out of the show. She started on it when she was only 14.



Before her role as Linda Reagan on “Blue Bloods,” Carlson first showed up on “Another World.” From 1993 to 1998, she featured as Josie Watts.


On “Guiding Light,” Clohessy played the role of Gil for six episodes. Then he went on to star on a single episode of “All My Children” before landing on “Blue Bloods” where he appeared as Sid.



Selleck, who was born in Detroit, Michigan, also started off on “The Young and Restless” where he appeared as Jed Andrews. His character featured on the show for a short time from 1974 to 1975.

The star is well-known as the private investigator Thomas Magnum on “Magnum, P.I.” He also had reoccurring roles on “The Closer” and “Friends” later on.



From 2006 to 2010, Ray appeared on “As the World Turns” as Teri Ciccone. The actress had the pleasure of featuring on the soap opera through to its finale.

Ray also had a theater career at Disney World where she toured with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. She eventually also had a chance to star on Broadway by playing Crissy in “Hair.”
