Bridget Moynahan Joined ‘Blue Bloods’ After Donnie Wahlberg Persuaded Her


Bridget Moynahan’s route to her position as Erin Reagan on “Blue Bloods” was not always straightforward.

Despite the show’s eventual success, Moynahan initially declined the position, expressing reservations about being away from her newborn son.

Moynahan, known for her roles in ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Coyote Ugly,’ had taken a hiatus from television before joining the cast of ‘Blue Bloods’ in 2010.

As a new mother to a three-year-old son, she was hesitant about committing to a TV series that would require significant time away from her family.

However, her co-star, Donnie Wahlberg, who plays her brother Danny Reagan on the program, persuaded her to reconsider. Moynahan finally accepted the assignment after his urging.

Despite her initial reservations, Moynahan’s portrayal of Erin Reagan has been a pivotal part of the show’s success over its 11-season run.

Her blend of strength and vulnerability has resonated with audiences, solidifying her place in the ‘Blue Bloods’ family.

Donnie Wahlberg’s Persuasion of Bridget Moynahan to Join ‘Blue Bloods’

In a 2019 interview, Mark Wahlberg discussed the uncertainty around the fate of “Blue Bloods,” saying that they were first assured the show would not proceed to series.

However, the scenario suddenly shifted, with Wahlberg learning only two days later that it was definitely being picked up.

Wahlberg also spoke about his efforts to persuade Bridget Moynahan to join the cast as his on-screen sister.

Despite her initial hesitancy, he made her an irresistible offer: if the program couldn’t film in New York, he would give her his whole payment. Fortunately, they were able to shoot in the city, securing Moynahan’s role in the series.
