"Blue Bloods," which debuted in 2010, is heading into its 13th season, and a well-loved show that's been running for years is bound to feature some incredible guest stars. You might not know that Season 12 of the police drama has a surprise cameo from a star who also acted in the iconic 1978 musical "Grease."
Didi Conn, who portrayed Frenchy in "Grease," can be seen as Mrs. Devlin in "Blue Bloods" Season 12, Episode 15, "Where We Stand." The episode's storyline involves Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) handling the public's demands to defund the NYPD School Safety Division, after an issue involving an officer and a student went viral.
Conn has acted in many projects, but "Grease" is so popular that generations of fans can recognize Frenchy's actor on sight. In an interview with Parade, Conn shared her surprise at the love for "Grease": "if I had known it was gonna be such a big success, I would have asked for points […] We only knew that we were really having a great, great time."
