Bridget Moynahan (Erin Reagan) and Will Estes (Jamie Reagan) emphasize the importance of regular exercise and healthy eating. Jennifer Esposito, Sami Gayle, and others share their personal and professional growth stories, highlighting how they balance the demands of their roles with their physical and mental well-being.


Donnie Wahlberg

Donnie Wahlberg plays lead character Danny Reagan. He shared with TODAY that his success came from his strong work ethic. "I think when I was younger, it wasn't so much, the success I dreamed was possible. I wouldn't have worked so hard at it if I didn't think it was possible. So, I did it, and I committed to it, and got there."


Bridget Moynahan


Bridget Moynahan plays Erin Reagan on the show. She tells Us Weekly that health and wellness are important to her. "I know everybody would love to hear about a secret pill or great cleanse," she said of her wellness routine. "It's just going back to what we were taught in school … eating and working out. I've just always been active. It's been part of my lifestyle my entire life. It's been instilled from my childhood."


Will Estes

Will Estes plays Jamie Reagan on the show. He shared his training process for roles with Men's Journal. "I try to train based on the role. I played a marine once so all I did was running, pushups and boxing. I did anything that was combat-oriented. I would go shoot and box and just sort of get into the whole mindset. In general I just like to run around and stay active. I did a little gymnastics when I was a kid so I'll run around and find a bar and try to do as many pull-ups as I can do. In terms of nutrition, I just try to eat clean."


Jennifer Esposito

Jennifer Esposito played Jackie Curatola on the first three seasons. In an interview with Variety, she talked about dealing with career setbacks. "I just got so frustrated with where my career had gone and where it was supposed to go — the way I feel it should have — and I thought, 'Instead of complaining about the stuff that you're not getting and not seeing, I can't complain anymore,'" she says. "It was like you're either quitting or you're going to do something about it. I would say, without being dramatic, 'I don't think I'd be able to die unless I do this.' It was something that needed to be done."


Sami Gayle

Sami Gayle played Nicky Reagan on the show's first ten seasons, and has made a couple of guest appearances since. She is also a Broadway star, recently appearing in Bad Cinderella. Gayle talked about her goals in an interview with Broadway World. "I think the goal of having the MBA is to be able to make content that I'm passionate about, and I think it's useful to be able to produce to ensure that I can do that in today's world, where there are so many different streaming platforms, and platforms for performance. So, my hope is to be able to use that degree and producing background – I've already co-produced a movie called Candy Jar that my brother wrote, and we have a couple more movies currently in development- to continue doing that producing work. And continue telling stories that I'm passionate about for myself, and also empowering other actors and other playwrights, and screenwriters, and crew members, all that stuff in the process, to be able to tell the stories they want to tell too."

Tom Selleck plays Frank Reagan on the show. He has been in the public eye for years, however, he values his privacy. "I knew intellectually what it would mean in terms of being a public person, but until you've lived it, there's no way to understand it," Selleck told People. "I had a feeling of, 'I don't think I'm cut out for this.' I quit Magnum, not because I didn't like it or I was tired of it. I was tired from it. And I wanted a three-dimensional life because I didn't have one."


Marisa Ramirez

Marisa Ramirez plays Maria Baez on the show. She joined the show in season three, and was promoted to main cast member in season four. In an interview with Pop Culture, Ramirez talked about how she booked the role. "There was a phase where I was the crying girlfriend. It was the sad girlfriend. It was like a bunch of guest star roles that was happening for a little while. Then maybe something happened in my personal life, where I just kind of evolved as a person and found some strength that was being seen in these casting rooms, and I just kept being cast as a cop."


Vanessa Ray

Vanessa Ray has played Eddie Janko-Reagan since the third season. In an interview with Long Island Weekly, Ray talked about how she prepared for the role. "Our producer, James Niciforo, who is the unsung hero of our show, took Marisa [Ramirez], Will [Estes] and I to a shooting range," said Ray. "It was the first time I ever shot a gun since I didn't really grow up with guns. I also did some SWAT-type training and learned how to clear a room. I have so much respect for police officers with the amount of gear that they're wearing on a day-to-day basis and being in such great physical shape."


Abigail Hawk

Abigail Hawk plays the recurring role of Abigail Baker. She talked about working on the show in an interview with "I feel as if I've almost grown into myself as a woman in this decade that I've been working," she said. "Really, everything that I've learned as a professional actor has happened on my time on the show. It's a personal triumph for me, but it's also a professional and creative triumph. It's incredibly rare for a network show to make it to 100 episodes, let alone 200."


Megan Ketch


Megan Ketch played the recurring role of Kate Lansing. She spends a lot of time outside and loves to go hiking to stay in shape. She shared this photo on Instagram of herself walking in the woods. Ketch also shared this set of photos of herself going on a hike with her dog and baby through a field. She captioned the post, "Wildflowers."


Lorraine Bracco


Lorraine Bracco played Margaret Dutton on the show. She shared her secrets for getting in shape in an interview with ABC News. "I started off very slow. My feeling is also, you sign up to go to the gym and you go to two classes and then you can't walk. It's just not the way to do it. Now, I go to Pilates class three times a week. I love that there are women who are in their 80s in my class and there were kids who are 23."
