WWOBD? What would Olivia Benson do?

SVU actress Mariska Hargitay recently had her art become her reality when a little girl got separated from her mother in the park and asked Mariska for help. The actress was in her SVU outfit complete with badge and filming a scene with her partner, actor Ice-T, when  the little 10 year old went up to her hoping for help to find her mother.

Hargitay stopped SVU filming for 20 minutes while they searched and found her mother who was also frantically looking for her daughter.

Mariska Hargitay’s character, Olivia Benson, is the longest-running character on a prime-time drama series. The show is also the longest-running drama series in TV history.

The show has been renewed for a record breaking 26th season.
