Who Plays
Santini On
Blue Bloods?
By STEVEN BOHNER
CBS’ “Blue Bloods” is already well past its tenth season of following the Reagan family, but what is often overlooked about the show is its supporting cast of characters. The police procedural drama has many memorable side characters — and one of those characters is the technical officer, Santini, but who is the talented actress that portrays her?
Santini is portrayed by Kristina Bartlett who has appeared as the reoccurring tech in the Technical Assistance Response Unit or "TARU" — in Seasons 9 thru 11 of "Blue Bloods." While her most prominent role to date is on "Blue Bloods," the actress actually began acting in 1996.
Bartlett’s career started on an episode of "Boston Common," and the actress has since appeared in several movies including "The Second Degree” and "Welcome to California." She’s also appeared in several television commercials and is an operatically trained singer who played a role in "The Grapes of Wrath" for the West Coast Ensemble theater company.
