Mariska Hargitay on ‘Law & Order: SVU’

Hargitay has played Benson since 1999, when Law & Order: SVU first began. Her character has grown from a detective to Captain of the squad. She’s worked her way up the ranks and earned the respect of others. Fans love to watch Benson get justice for many survivors over the years.

Hargitay met her husband, Peter Hermann, an actor, on the set of SVU in 2002. They were married in 2004, and they have three children together named August, Amaya, and Andrew, and reside in New York.

Hargitay was recently reunited with her old partner, Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), who now has his own spinoff called Law & Order: Organized Crime. They worked together for over a decade before Meloni left the series over a contract dispute. Now reunited, fans have been treated to the two interacting together again, which has been a joy for fans.
