Right here, 32-year-old Estes chats with ELLE about bulletproof vests, G.I. Joes, and braving NYC winters.
This is not the very first time you have played a cop—you're an Ohio police officer within the upcoming film Magic Valley—so how was the Blue Bloods prep various?WE: I am certainly one of the only individuals on the show who wears the vest below the uniform. When we began it was truly hot, and individuals had been going, Are you currently certain you would like to put on that? You are crazy, that factor is truly uncomfortable. But I like it simply because you are able to see it underneath the shirt, and it does alter your posture. It tends to make the uniform appear much more like the actual factor.
How do you relate for your character, Jamie?WE: Ultimately, he's a guy that grew up about the family members dinner table with his dad and older brothers telling cop stories, and he's somebody who had the courage to adhere to his convictions and turn out to be a police officer like his dad and grandfather. He's a beat cop now, but I am certain that is not his objective. I am certain he'd adore to create detective and he'd adore to function on larger and much more high profile crimes. I believe as a guy, a great deal of us can kind of determine. I certainly played with G.I. Joe figures when I was kid, and also the concept of becoming a cop is not that far off from that.
What is it been like operating with Mr. Magnum P.I.?WE: Thrilling!I saw Magnum, P.I. when I was younger so, obviously, I know Tom Selleck from some of his fantastic function.
You are from L.A., however the show films in NYC. How have you been adjusting to winter?WE: It is been difficult, but I really feel like I've climatized. I hacked out a parking space for myself these days, there was a bunch of ice, and individuals had been taking a look at me like I was crazy, however it only took me like 3 or 4 minutes after which I had a parking space that nobody else was prepared to cope with. I am taking issues into my personal hands out right here.
