Law & Order has been a staple television show for decades, and with so many spin-offs we’re sure you’ve been a fan of at least one. We had the pleasure of sitting down with one of the many beloved stars of Law & Order: SVU, blonde bombshell Kelli Giddish, to dish about her costars, her friendship with Ice-T’s wife Coco and what it’s like to star on one of the biggest shows on TV.
Playboy.com: Law & Order. Why do you think everyone is always too busy to talk to you guys?
Giddish: [Laughs] I don’t know; I know that my character can Google anything. They always tease me that I should write a book on how to find anything. I feel like my character is always coming into a scene saying, “Well I was just Googling this in the last ten seconds and have all the information that we need for act three.” The thing is that I’m such a dork when it comes to computers. My wireless internet has been down for a week and I have no idea how to fix it, but here I am playing this character on TV that can just do anything she wants.
Playboy.com: Your character is going through some epic stuff right now. What was it like reading the script for the first time?
Giddish: I read the script like it was a huge secret. I held myself up in my dressing room and I read the whole thing, front to cover, and just sat there. I was really excited and also nervous to be able to portray my character as the primary storyline throughout the episode; it was a real treat.
