Kelli Giddish stepped away from the role of Amanda Rollins on Law & Order: SVU last year Kelli Giddish is back … again! The actress is stepping back into the shoes of Amanda Rollins for the upcoming Law & Order: Organized Crime finale. Giddish was seen in action in a tweet from SVU star Ice-T, who will appear on Organized Crime as part of a franchise crossover. Giddish left NBC's SVU franchise last year after 12 seasons. Addressing her departure plan, she shared an emotional statement about her long-term involvement in the crime drama. "There is simply no other character on TV like Rollins," Giddish said in a previous statement to PEOPLE. Later explaining the reason for her exit, Giddish told Variety that it's just that "time in the Rollins storyline" for her to leave. "I felt like where it was heading, and where it headed last night, just seemed the right place to leave it right now," she said of her initial final episode.
