Erika Discusses Blue Bloods’ Role
As a matter of fact, the veteran actress recently told Soaps in Depth in an interview, “It gave me the awesome opportunity to work with the great Len Cariou. We shot on location at a lovely private home in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, which is actually a kitty-corner to the house that is used as the Reagan’s home.”

Slezak adds that the experience “was wonderful. The entire crew, the director, John Behring, and the writer, Daniel Truly, could not have been more delightful and helpful. And I worked with a wonderful young actress, Tana Sirois, who played my granddaughter. All in all, I had, simply, the best day! What fun to be back at work with such talented actors and on such a fabulous crew.”
Slezak Has Stayed Busy Over The Years
The last time fans saw Erika in action as Victoria Lord was back in 2013. She played the character on One Life to Live from 1971 through the television finale in 2012 and again during it’s brief revival in 2013.
