Since the debut of Mariska Hargitay’s Law & Order: SVU character back in 1999, the Law & Order universe has maintained a dedication to showcasing strong female characters. The new generation of Law & Order stars came with even more female leads, including Danielle Mone Truitt and Ainsley Seiger. And in a recent crossover episode, the female leads of SVU and Organized Crime combined to create some serious girl power.
In a picture posted to her Instagram account, Danielle Mone Truitt posed with her Law & Order co-stars, Mariska Hargitay and Ainsley Seiger. In the caption, she shared her excitement for sharing the screen with such talented actresses. “It was Ladies Night with Mariska Hargitay and Ainsley Seiger on the set of SVU this Premiere Eve!” Truitt wrote. “We did some good acting and had some good girl talk! Saying that we are FIERCE is an understatement!”
In an interview with Today, Danielle Mone Truitt described the episode in further detail. “I think this episode is definitely, like, I feel like it’s a girl power episode,” Truitt said. “It’s me, Jet (Ainsley Seiger), Captain Benson (Mariska Hargitay), and Rollins (Kelli Giddish). And Captain Benson, of course, is pairing up with Stabler, or whatever, but I do love there’s so many women in this episode, like on the case, getting stuff done.”
