As the longest-running live-action scripted American primetime series ever, it’s no surprise that “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” has had its fair share of recognizable actors and actresses from other popular television series. “Law & Order” and “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” have historically served as a proving ground for some of the best up-and-coming actors the industry has to offer, and that hasn’t changed over the years.
Michael Shannon, Adam Driver, and Viola Davis are just a few of the award-winning names that have landed cameos in the procedural franchise. If you watched the latest episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and thought the character of Gabe Navarro looked like one of those familiar faces from another television series, you’d be right. That’s actor Rhys Coiro, and his new role on “SVU” certainly feels like a full circle moment after his first few of roles in Hollywood.
