Another fan, @Morgs2102 wrote of Winter's performance:

"I'm really loving her. She's so adorable, and her performance is amazing!!! #SVU21 #WinterIsComingToSVU.”

WINTER EXPLAINS THAT REAGAN IS "SPECIAL TO ME"

Just the day before the episode aired on October 3, 21-year-old Winter took to Instagram to share that getting to play Reagan is a critical task for her.

That can perhaps explain why she gave such an excellent performance onscreen. "Reagan is wildly different from any character I've played," Winter wrote on Instagram.

"She's special to me because she's a realistic person. She's not perfect, she's still figuring herself out." She continued by writing,

"She likes to go out and drink and experiment, and like many of us, she struggles with accepting herself and being honest."

The "Sofia the First" star further explains that it was a bit challenging to bring Reagan "to life" because "I have a fear of failure and a hard time relinquishing control."

She then commended long-standing SVU actress Mariska Hargitay, who is especially known for her ever-evolving hair looks on the show, for helping her get comfortable while filming the episode.
