You will seldom see them smiling on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” so the recent shots posted by actress Mariska Hargitay with her co-stars were a treat for the fans.
Recently, Hargitay took to Twitter to share to her 864,000 followers a sweet photo showing her reunion with two of her co-stars. Taken at a playground in New York, Hargitay was photographed with Ryan Buggle, who plays Hargitay’s adopted son on the show, and Philip Winchester, whose character is Assistant District Attorney Peter Stone.
As it looked in the photo, the trio was spending quality time together and seemed to be having fun.
The actress also took the time to accompany the photo with several hashtags, including “Crisp fall day in New York,” “A boy and his baseball coach,” “Proud mama,” “Stone on the mound,” “Buggle at bat,” and “SVU family.”

Fans couldn’t help but gush over the broad smiles of the “SVU” stars. Supposedly, they’re not used to seeing them flash their glowing grins a lot, especially on the show with its serious tone.
Apart from the first photo, Hargitay shared another one. This time, the photo is with the former “SVU” star, Raul Esparza. He played A.D.A Rafael Barba starting from season 14 up until season 19. Both stars looked adorable as they had big smiles plastered on their faces.
Once again, Hargitay wrote several hashtags to celebrate the reunion. She wrote, “Barba in the house,” “His face makes me happy,” “Always deeply adored,” “Star of screen and stage,” and “Sunday stage day.”
Meanwhile, aside from noticing how happy the stars were in the photos, fans also took notice of Hargitay and Winchester’s poses in the picture. They started speculating that perhaps their characters might become an item on the show.
Now on its 20th season, the show has been through it all. They have shot at many locations, including a real working prison in Goshen, New York. They had to use custom-made drones for the crucial scenes.
Also, it became the first episodic series that was allowed to film at the U.N. headquarters in New York City. Check out other fun facts about the show here.
