I have never seen a credit for the actress who plays Baker on ‘Blue Bloods.’ What is her name? What is her resume?
Abigail Hawk, who plays the same-first-named Detective Abigail Baker, is officially a recurring player on the series, not a regular. In the credits you see her name among the guest stars. (By the way, she was called Melissa in the series’ earliest episodes before getting a name change.)
From her bio: Originally from Atlanta, Hawk was been performing since she was 6 and had her first TV role at 12 in the syndicated series “Reality Check.” She has a bachelor’s degree in theater performance from the University of Maryland, and has an array of stage credits, including as a founding member of New York’s Rachel Klein Theater Ensemble.
On TV you may have seen her in “Body of Proof,” “Law and Order: SVU,” “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “The Beautiful Life” and “Are We There Yet?” Her movie credits include “Captain of the Land of Make Believe,” “Bubble Girl” and the now-in-production “The Apprentice,” which has nothing to do with Donald Trump.
She sings, writes songs, loves distance-running, hiking, camping, caving and kayaking, and is involved with several charities. She lives on Long Island with her husband, son, two cats, two fish and two snails.
