Mariska Hargitay


  1. Stacey Nelkin, Get Crazy, 1983.      “Every role, there was an argument” – director Allan Arkush on his third movie. “The part of the little sister was supposed to be played by Mariska, who was so beautiful, you wanted to fall on the floor.” She is the multi-Emmy Award winning daughter of Jayne Mansfield.
  2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Seinfeld, TV, 1989-1998.
  3. Laura Dern, Jurassic Park, 1992.
  4. Sandra Bullock, Speed, 1993.      Although sharing the heroics and the driving of the bus-bomb with Keanu Reeves, most girls saw it as The Guy’s film. An amazing 35 others also refused to be Annie.  Mariska was hardly interested in speed driving…    Since age three, she’s  had a  ziz-zag scar on her head –  but no memory of surviving the terrible 1967 car smash that killed her mother: Jayne Mansfield.
  5. Gabrielle Fitzpatrick, Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, US-Japan-Australia, 1994.     When the Australian Fitzpartick required surgery, Hargitay took over as Dulcea at Sydney’s Darling Harbour. The suits did not appreciate her take and Fitzpatrick was back at work by January 1995.
