I grew up in Los Angeles, so in a lot of ways it picked me more than I chose it. When I started getting older and all my friends were picking what they wanted to do for work or going to school, I realized there wasn’t anything else I wanted to do. It’s a lot of fun and I feel like I learned a lot. There were just a lot of things about it that I really loved. I began to view it as a craft and as a career and I’ve been doing it ever since.

How Will Estes prepares for his role on Blue Bloods

In an interview with Men’s Journal, Estes said he prepares for his Blue Bloods role by staying active. He also practices on a shooting range and does his own stunts.

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.
