In her interview with Starry Constellation Magazine, Abigail Hawk revealed that her character is five years older, which presents an interesting acting task of trying to figure out how Abigail Baker would respond to situations having five more years of experience in her life. She also revealed that she and Tom Selleck spoke in depth about what caused Frank to bring Baker on as his Assistant to the Commissioner. The actress has shared how much she “adores” working with Selleck and called him a “huge champion of mine” when speaking with Pop Culture.
One thing that stands out when it comes to Baker is her dynamics with Frank, Garrett, and Sid. “The thing that I love about her is that she’s just so capable of reading the room and reading people. Like Tom calls Baker like Frank’s Radar from ‘MASH’ — she almost has this sixth sense about people that are going in and out of that office and what he needs and what he doesn’t need. I love their relationship. I love the relationship between all of us — looping in Garrett and Sid Gormley. Particularly we’re all just really in tune and he keeps us because we’re good at very specific things,” she adds. It’s no wonder that fans want to see more of Hawk’s character going forward.
