‘Law & Order: SVU’: Mariska Hargitay Reflects On ‘Magic’ Of Her & Chris Meloni’s Onscreen Bond

Mariska Hargitay is going into her 25th season of “Law & Order: SVU”! Ahead of the landmark season, the actress told Access Hollywood guest correspondent Emily Orozco about hitting such a milestone and how she feels “strong in a new way” this year: “The lessons that I’ve been learning my whole life – but also for 25 years on this show – have started to land.” Mariska also detailed the “magic” of the onscreen chemistry between her and her longtime screen partner Christopher Meloni – who has recurred his role as Elliot Stabler on “SVU” in recent seasons – and how “grateful” she is for their journey. She also detailed what she loves about her co-stars Ice-T, Peter Scanavino, Octavio Pisano and Kelli Giddish and shared how much fun they have on set. Ice-T also chatted with Access, reflecting on his friendships with his co-stars – and how he’s been known to fall asleep on set! “Law & Order: SVU” returns for Season 25 on Jan.18 at 9/8c.
