Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan

In a recent fan Q&A, Tom revealed his favourite episode of the series so far. "Special for me was being able to shoot at the 9/11 memorial," the actor said. "We were the first film company to ever do that. It was a very important show, very emotional for Frank. I'm very proud of that, but I'm proud of all that we do."

Will Estes as Jamie Reagan

Will Eastes plays Jamie, the 'Golden boy' of the Regan family who is following in father Frank's footsteps as an NYPD Sergeant. Before joining the cast of Blue Bloods, Will had supporting roles in many drama series including Line of Duty, American Dream and even appeared in The Dark Knight Rises.
