SVU's New ADA is Tough, But Has Heart, Says Actress

Melissa Sagemiller had a familiar feeling when she entered the Law & Order: SVU set, the show that gave the actress her first role 11 years earlier.

"I walked into the meeting for this role and Neal [Baer] and Ted [Kotcheff], the executive producers, remembered me. I was touched," Sagemiller says.

After playing a victim in the Season 1 episode "Russian Love Poem," she was cast in the current Season 12 as Assistant District Attorney Gillian "Jill" Hardwicke. Wednesday marks Sagemiller's second episode with this role.

Not only do Sagemiller and Mariska Hargitay have a past from previously working together, but so do their characters, Hardwicke and Detective Olivia Benson.
