Mariska Hargitay stays close to Julia Goldani Telles while filming an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, inspired by the trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
Mariska Hargitay was spotted Friday afternoon filming an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in Manhattan.
The 58-year-old star was joined by actress Julia Goldani Telles and character actor Radioman as they filmed the episode, which included the participation of numerous extras.
The episode will apparently be inspired by Johnny Depp’s libel lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Hargitay spoke about the popularity of the series during an interview with Processionwhere she gave her thoughts on why the program had taken so long.
She stated, “SVU resonates because it is a path to healing and a path to survival. Each week, Olivia Benson and the team envision an environment of compassion, sympathy and justice.”
The artist went on to say that the program also served to highlight cases of injustice and what could be done in the future.
‘The conversations that the show evokes have led to a greater awareness and understanding of the problem. And every revelation is an opportunity to show that a victim is to be believed,” she said.
