He said that the first scene following her death, which took place off-camera in between Seasons 7 and 8, was an emotional one to film.

"The first dinner scene without Linda was really emotional, just genuine emotion," Wahlberg said when asked about the most memorable family dinner scenes. "Nobody was acting that day. My tears were real, because even though in real life, Amy Carlson was still around, I was going to be moving forward on the show without her. I wouldn't have a partner anymore to help me with these boys — on-screen and off, to be frank. It's a big loss, and I'll always remember the emotion of that day."

Fans took to's Facebook post about Wahlberg's quote to react. "It has made such a difference without her at the table and the whole story line itself," one fan wrote alongside a crying emoji.

"We all cried when linda died. It was so sad like losing one of our love ones," wrote another.

Blue Bloods debuted in 2010 on CBS and is currently in its 10th season. The series will return from a temporary hiatus on Friday, Jan. 3.
