We know Amy Carlson as Linda Reagan, the wife of Detective Danny Reagan on the hit series “Blue Bloods”. However, what many people may forget is that this talented actress is a television veteran of 21 years who has spent the majority of her career on the small screen. Ironically, she is adding another item to her resume because she has filmed a comedy movie, “Hits” that will come out in 2014. It is never too late to grow in your career and Amy Carlson is proving that with this move.
Amy could easily have been satisfied staying within her comfort zone. Since 1993 she has been a consistent presence on television starting with the daytime soap “Another World” and her television career is populated with roles on some of the most popular television shows such as “Get Real” and “Third Watch”. There was nothing pushing Amy to pursue other acting roles other than her own inner drive and that is likely why she has been an actress who has consistently worked.
To become an actress who is always remembered by fans, directors and producers one must push themselves outside their comfort zone and this is a characteristic that people do not truly appreciate about Amy Carlson. She is an actress who despite not wearing her motivation on her shoulder is never satisfied and this despite having a well established entertainment career.
When you look back at Amy Carlson’s acting career it is hard to believe that it has encompassed over 21 years and is still evolving in her career but that is a testament to Ms. Carlson. An acting professional no matter how adept can still learn and grow at every stage of their career and Amy Carlson is proof of this fact.
