    I will love my daughter to be on this show! She is a good actress. A very good one. She has been in numerous school plays. And even better we live in New York. The court house that you guys sometimes film in is on the grand concourse and is the supreme court of New York. She loves law and order. All of them. If you asked her about the series (SVU) trust me she can answer all your question. She used to watch it with her dad right before he died on her 5th grade graduation. Please just give her a shot. She deserves it. She is 12-years old and amazing.

  3. Mahala Joy Douglas

    I am Mahala and im 16 years old. I am 5’3 with blonde hair, blue eyes, and a average build. I have been casted in my hometowns high school plays and have also worked on the tech portion of plays. Acting has always been a dream of mine since I was 5 years old as well and cosmetology. If I was to have a chance to play a role in Law And Order SVU it would mean the world to me. I have watched every single episode in every season. If you were to consider me for any role i would be so honored. Thank you.

  4. Kate Rishoff

    Hi, my name is Kate Rishoff. I reside in Boca Raton, Florida. I have a resume actually, butthere is no place for an attachment here, but to tell you about myself in a nutshell, I am a Nationally Certified Paralegal so I am familiar with legal parlance and vernacular, so that could be helpful. In every production for school had it been for Grade, Middle or College, whenever I tried for a part I always was successful….but not at home convincing my parents that I was really into acting. My parents are both gone home to the Lord now, and the one thing in my life that I will regret forever until I die is not going against their wishes and just going for it… but I was a goodie goodie two shoes and never went against my parents’ wishes…Like NEVER. I left work for six years to take care of both of them, one with Alzheimer’s and one with various physical problems. They are with each other now, and I am by myself, still looking for work in the “regular normal world” which my parents wanted for me, but I always hated. I am very creative…and very dramatic…. I know I had it in me. Now after taking care of them….It is my turn to take care of myself. I would desire greatly to audition for a role and prove to myself more than anyone that I had it in me always to do this, but never given that opportunity. I know I can do this…I know it….and for the first time in my life I am answering to myself and no one else. I would like to prove it to the world. Thank you.. My best regards, Kate Rishoff.. My love to the cast by the way.. They are all fantastic. .. Break a Leg!

    Please contact me and I will be happy to provide for you any materials you may be requesting, inclusive of a resume. Being that I never fulfilled my dream, I never did head shots or anything like that, I was always studious so I paid for Paralegal School instead. I have a really interesting background, and I can do German and French accents from studying German and French for 4/3 years. Thank you. I appreciate your kindness and consideration in regard to my aspirations.

  5. Chase Hull

  7. Taylor S

    I am easy on the eyes. I binge watch Law and Order:SVU. I recently beat chronic Lyme disease. I work as a pre-employment specialist that helps transitioning veterans. I would love to cross this off my bucket list. F, 24, kinda short but not too short ;D.

  8. Morgan Forte

    I am 20 years-old, dark brown hair, blue eyes, I’m 5’5”, average build, and have very little acting experience. I’m also a makeup artist, so being on or around movie and television sets in places such as New York, L.A., and Atlanta would be an amazing opportunity. Even if at first I would be just standing in the background as an extra. I’ve seen almost every episode of SVU and it’s by far one of the best produced shows I’ve ever seen and it would be a dream come true to be apart of it.

  9. Courtney

    I’m a NYC court reporter and would love to be a court reporting extra!

  11. Jasmine Dietelbach

    Hi I am Jasmine. I am 14 years old, I haven’t had to much experiencing with acting, but I can learn fast. May sound weird but I can make my self cry, and my friends say I am very good at making this up and acting as if it were true. Any role! It would literally be the biggest dream of mine to meet and experience time on Law and Order Special Victims Unit. Watching this show has honestly made me comfortable talking about sticky situations, and learning how to say NO if i’m ever stuck in a situation involving sexual intercourse. I hope this works!! Thank you all and have a fantastic day.

    I’m not a ‘professional actor’, but I was an extra in ‘Wonder Boys’ (Michael Douglas, Robert Downey, Jr.) and to be on L&O SVU is on my Ultimate bucket list! Gloating rights are pay enough:-) I work in Early Childhood Ed., so I’d be excellent as a nanny.

  36. Elizabeth Stewart

    In case I wasn’t posted:
    -My name is Elizabeth, I’m 19, and I have seen every season of Law&Order: SVU. It is very important to me and holds a special place in my heart.
    -19 is an optimal age. I can play from the age of 15 to early twenties. I also am well versed in adolescent culture due to the fact that I am an adolescent.
    -I’m artistic, creative, and agreeable as heck.
    -I’ve played minor roles in school plays and am accustomed to performing onstage. I’ve edited *so* many essays and provided lots of artistic critique. I can be a consultant or a script doctor or I can just do exactly what I’m told to do without protest. I am REALLY good at doing that.
    -I love Law&Order: SVU with all my heart. I’ve watched it for as long as I’ve been allowed to (my parents didn’t take too kindly to me watching a show about sex crimes) and I’ve loved every minute of it.
    I am ready and willing to take on any role, however small. Other than school I’m not a busy gal. I’m deciding between pursuing a career in the arts or psychology/criminology; a minor role on this show would be absolutely exhilarating.

  37. Elizabeth Stewart

    My name’s Elizabeth, I’m 19 and I love Law&Order: SVU so much my friends have made a running joke of it. I have seen every single episode. And as you know, there are a lot of episodes. I have made a serious emotional investment in this show.
    I can offer you as much as anyone else, which is my time, money , and energy (plus my entire soul channeled into the few seconds I might be onscreen). I can look years older or younger depending on if I wear makeup. My experience is in the arts (once almost went to a prestigious art school before being booted across the country via my parents’ jobs). I’m a good actress in that I will easily tear up if hassled, and starred one (1) time in a school play. In elementary school we were forced to sing and participate in stage productions. I…was in the front row on Dr. Phil once? I starred in several of my dad’s parody productions he made for his coworkers? I’m used to being onstage at the very least. I play in a symphony. I will perform a flute solo, honestly, if you want me to.
    In all seriousness, I am extremely interested in film, tv, musical theater, writing screenplays, etc. I have taken film classes, art classes, and drama classes, which is as close as I can come to being a practiced actress.
    OTHER:
    I am extensively trained in the art of sitting or standing in one place for long periods of time with a pensive look on my face.
    -Crime shows are the bread & butter of my day-to day life. I’m studying to be a criminologist.
    I don’t need the money, or any incentive, I just need the experience. I love New York– I have a lot of family that lives there, plus it’s been romanticized to hell and back, how could I not be–& being featured on the show is a life dream.I wrote this on a whim, but please contact me if you’re serious about making an offer. I will literally do whatever–I am open to anything and everything.
