Mariska Hargitay To Get Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hargitay will have her hands imprinted on Hollywood Boulevard in a special ceremony on November 8. Law & Order creator Dick Wolf and close friend Hilary Swank will present the Emmy nominee with the award.

Mariska Hargitay’s star will be placed next to her late mother’s, actress Jayne Mansfield. The elder Mansfield, who died in a car accident on June 29, 1967, received her star on February 8, 1960.

The 49-year-old has been playing Detective Olivia Benson on Law & Order: SVU for 15 seasons. The fate of her character was left hanging in the air during the season 14 finale, which found Liv staring down the barrel of a gun before the screen faded to black.

Hargitay was still in contract negotiations when the series was renewed for its 15th season in April, which left fans wondering if she would survive the encounter. While the financial terms of Hargitay’s deal haven’t been disclosed, she was making $500,000 per episode last season, making her the highest-paid actress on television.
