Mariska: I remember getting the script for SVU and, uh, with a, with a warning from my manager at the time who said, “Mariska, this is, uh…I don’t know if you’re going to appreciate the subject matter, this is very dark.”  I read the script and, uh…felt a connection…to the material, uh, unlike any other script I’d ever read and was so excited to go in an audition for it and, uh, met Dick Wolf and the rest is history.  

James Lipton: What in the character of Olivia Benson made you want to play her?

Mariska: *with emotion, sighs* I know, right?  It’s deep.  Her…uh…need…to…right the wrongs of the past.  Her need for justice.  Her compassion.  And her love.  She’s love.  

The fact that they were doing a show about sex crimes and things that people continually sweep under the carpet, I thought, ‘That’s a show that I want to be on, that’s a show that is going to talk about issues that nobody wants to talk about,’ and it did … and boy am I glad I’m on it. —Mariska Hargitay (via mariska-chris-olivia-elliot)

It’s simple physics: the greater the number of people willing to lift, the lighter the load that each individual must carry. —Mariska Hargitay  (via castle-tvd)
