Happy Birthday to Len Cariou

Carlson, 51, posted a photo of her and Cariou smiling as she wished the actor a Happy Birthday and called him a "Prince of a Guy." The photo is found below. 

Carlson included the hashtags "Sweeney Todd" and "Tony winner." She also described Cariou as a "great friend" in the caption. The actress would know since she worked with Cariou for seven years on CBS' "Blue Bloods." 

Why Amy Carlson left "Blue Bloods"

Carlson left in season seven with the killing off of her character Linda Reagan. The news was a shock to fans as they had received no hints from the plotline before it happened. 

In real life, Carlson explained that she decided on her own to leave the show. She left the manner of her fictional death to the writers. Linda had an off-screen death from a helicopter crash.
