the making of a smash hit

IT’S A HOLLYWOOD ADAGE that sex sells. But what about sex crimes? Did America have an appetite for watching heinous offenses play out in prime time? In 1999, television producer Dick Wolf was determined to find out. The New York native was eager to expand his empire at NBC, where his police-legal hybrid drama Law & Order was thriving as it entered its 10th season on the air. Inspired by the so-called Preppy Murder case of Robert Chambers, which had dominated New York City tabloids in the late 1980s, Wolf devised a spinoff that would feature a team of NYPD detectives focused on solving sex crimes. “SVU was ahead of its time, as sexual violence has become one of the most important topics of conversation today,” Wolf tells People. He…

mariska hargitay as olivia benson

SHE’S ACUTELY SENSITIVE TO THE NEEDS of the victims she serves—but don’t cross her. The courageous and emotionally complex Olivia Benson, the character created by Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning Mariska Hargitay, has never had qualms about shedding tears—or, when necessary, blood—in her fierce pursuit of justice for the victims of sex crimes, rising from detective to sergeant to lieutenant and, now, boss of the Precinct 16 squad room during the course of her record-breaking run on air. The daughter of Hollywood screen siren Jayne Mansfield, who died tragically when Mariska was 3, and professional bodybuilder Mickey Hargitay, she was a California girl with dreams of making it as a comedy star when she won the part of the street-hardened Manhattan detective that would make her world-famous at age 35. Twenty-one…

ice-t as odafin ‘fin’ tutuola

ICE-T COMES NATURALLY BY THE STREET credibility that his character, Sgt. Fin Tutuola, brings to the SVU. Born Tracy Lauren Marrow, he was orphaned at a young age and became involved in Los Angeles gangs before breaking out as one of the creators of West Coast gangster rap and the controversial single “Cop Killer,” released in 1992 by his thrash-metal band Body Count, who were nominated for a Grammy two years ago. As Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’s street-smart Sgt. Fin Tutuola—who has also appeared on the Dick Wolf-produced Chicago P.D.—Ice-T has been chasing after bad guys since joining SVU in the last episode of the show’s first season in 2000. You’ve been on this show since the last episode of the first season. How has Fin changed over those…

kelli giddish as amanda rollins

BORN AND RAISED IN GEORGIA, Kelli Giddish appeared on All My Children and had guest spots on both Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Special Victims Unit before joining the SVU cast in 2011 as Detective Rollins, an ambitious cop with a backstory fraught with family issues and an addiction to gambling. As Fin’s partner on the job, Rollins has grappled with a problematic romance with her superior, been the victim of a vicious assault and has given birth to two daughters—both times when the show’s producers wrote the actress’s real-life pregnancies into the script. Giddish, 39, and husband Lawrence Faulborn live in New York with their two sons, Ludo, 4, and Charlie, 1. “[ON SVU], ALL YOU DO IS JUST SIT BACK AND LET THE GREAT WRITING COME IN AND…

peter scanavino as dominick ‘sonny’ carisi jr.

ROCKING A FAT TIE AND A WIDE-WALE MUSTACHE, Dominick “Call Me Sonny” Carisi first introduced himself to the squad in season 16 by passing out pastries and boasting: “I can do that whole empathy thing.” He quickly lost the facial hair and eventually won the loyalty of his skeptical colleagues, thanks to his passion for justice and sharp-eyed powers of investigation. As season 21 began, however, Carisi turned in his badge to begin a new career as a sex-crimes prosecutor. For Scanavino, 39—who has appeared on and Off-Broadway in productions including the Tony-nominated Shining City and Eric Bogosian’s Suburbia and TV’s Blacklist and The Leftovers—his character’s feelings of familial loyalty to the SVU are strongly held. A Colorado native, he lives in New York with his wife, artist Lisha Bai,…
