Mariska Hargitay Gets Emotional at 'SVU' Paleyfest Panel: 'The World is Changing Now So Much Because of This Show'

Mariska Hargitay dons an all black ensemble as she hits the red carpet at the Paleyfest New York Presents Law & Order: SVU held at the Paley Center For Media on Monday (October 13) in New York City.

The 50-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-stars Danny Pino, Raul Esparza, Peter Scanavino, Ice-T and his wife Coco, as well as writer/producers Warren Light and Julie Martin, and show creator Dick Wolf.

During the panel, Mariska got emotional talking about her role and how much it has changed her life.

“These issues were now being spoken about at the watercooler at work because they were on TV the night before. That was so deeply exciting to me,” Mariska expressed. “Here we had this platform to talk about issues that were normally swept under the rug. The world is changing now — so much because of this show — and I’m grateful for that.”
