Law & Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay Posts Emotional Goodbye To Kelli Giddish

Mariska Hargitay bid farewell to her Law & Order: SVU co-star Kelli Giddish after the actress' sudden departure from the show, with no clear reason given. Reports suggest that Giddish's exit may have been due to a call made from above, possibly related to salary negotiations, although nothing has been confirmed. As one of the show's producers, Hargitay objected to Giddish being forced off the show and expressed gratitude towards her in a heartfelt statement. Rollins' departure in the fall finale will undoubtedly affect Benson and the rest of the squad moving forward when Law & Order: SVU returns in January.
