The 47-year-old Law & Order:SVU star attended the university before starting her acting career.

Deadline reports that Mariska‘s SVU character, Olivia Benson, may be getting a female partner after Christopher Meloni announced his departure from the show.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, who guest-starred on the show, was also rumored to be joining the cast but Deadline adds that isn’t happening.

Mariska Hargitay. Hands down. This is one celebrity that I admire. Simple, humble, generous. It would be nice if all were equal to it. Ah! I almost forgot: she is still beautiful.

The TFT at UCLA is a unique special place and the #1 film school in the world. The MFA admissions ratio is tighter than Caltech.

Your comment is uninformed. If you knew what the school was you would understand why they chose her to speak.

Valeu girl. I admire you too. You’re great in all respects.

Love that they chose her, she is amazing!!
