While her marriage off-screen continues to thrive, fans are wondering what will be the outcome of her character’s longtime flirtation with Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni).
During the interview, she also addressed the speculation and potential romance the characters could explore.
Mariska stated: “He is free, and I think he’s got eyes for me, but Olivia Benson is hurt! I mean, he left me in a lurch for 10 years. She’s frightened.”
Unfortunately for fans, they will have to wait a while before they will see any sparks fly as the Law and Order franchise is on a mid-season break due to the Winter Olympics.
Law and Order SVU will return to NBC on Thursday, February 24
