Bermudian actress on Law & Order: SVU

A Bermudian actress appeared on last night's episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Lana Young, who has appeared in hit shows like Vampire Diaries, Beginners and Jessica Jones, was featured in a small role on the NBC show.

The episode, titled “Something Happened”, focused Detective Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay, and her struggle to get a rape victim to talk about her ordeal.

Ms Young, who recently featured in a recurring role in the drama Greenleaf, said she was happy to earn a role on the long-running series.

“I was so excited when I got this audition for SVU,” she said. “I have been in New York for three years and never had one opportunity to audition in front of Jonathan Strauss, who is the casting director for Law and Order. “It was a thrill to be called back for a second audition and then finally booked.

“Even though it's a small co-star role, it's a foot in the door with this particularly busy casting office. This business is all about relationships, and they often bring actors back.”

She said she felt as though she has finally made it into a “special club”, adding that everyone on the show's set was welcoming and professional.

“My scene wasn't with Mariska but she paid a special visit and made a point of coming over and introducing herself to me which I found to be very gracious,” she said.

“It says a lot about her.”
