by Matthew Memrick

“Law & Order: Organized Crime” star Ainsley Seiger’s latest “dirty mirror” selfie has her showing off an all-black dress.

She captioned it, “happy monday have a dirty mirror pic.”

One fan joked, “That’s right. Don’t waste that queen of the small screen money on Windex.”

It was her second selfie with a black outfit this month. On Aug. 2, the star posted a previous photo, this time with a leather jacket and glasses.

In a June Carolina Coast Online article, she said while easy to be mean on the internet, she thought it was “astounding” that people were friendly to her as a “Law & Order: Organized Crime” newcomer. 

‘Law & Order’ Star Is A NC Native

Seiger has taken to her first starring role in stride. The recent North Carolina School of The Arts graduate talked to Carolina Coast Online about her role on “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”

She has a primary role in supporting Christopher Meloni’s Detective Elliot Stabler role as he goes after villain Dylan McDermott’s Richard Wheatley character.

Seiger plays Jet Slootmaekers, a computer technology expert with a particular New York Police Department unit investigating organized crime. 

Seiger grew up in a Raleigh suburb and started acting in summer theater. Her mother is an opera singer and private voice teacher.

“I thought Broadway and off-Broadway would be where I would find my place,” Seiger told The (Raleigh) News & Observer

She told the newspaper that though she loved singing, her career went down a similar path. She also told OneChicagoCenter that she started theater at a very early age and her first musical was in the sixth grade.

Since then, she said she knew she wanted to be an actor. 

With production on “Law & Order: Organized Crime” wrapping up months ago, she related a desire to go back to North Carolina for “a little bit of spring” and “to see my family for a little bit. But for right now I’m just happy to take things as they come my way.”

‘Law & Order’ Star Made Most of Pandemic 

Seiger submitted an audition tape for the Dick Wolf series, and she said things took off from there.

“I did two scenes from the show, and I sent it in, and then the carpet just kind of unrolled before me, and I was in New York,” she told Carolina Coast Online.

Grateful for the TV franchise opportunity, Seiger said, “the gratitude that I feel and the thankfulness that I feel for having what I have right now” is tough to put into words. 

Seiger said she’s taking the character’s role seriously while figuring out how to weave Slootmaekers into a team player with the rest of the cast. All the while, she’s hoping to make the character relatable to “Law & Order: Organized Crime” fans.

“Law & Order: Organized Crime” Season 2 premiere is Sept. 23.
