Sophia Bush of Chicago PD fame has worked on screen with Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay in crossover episodes of their respective shows before, but it was during NBC Universal’s 2015 Winter TCA Tour last week that the two met up again.
NBC advertises both Sophia Bush and Mariska Hargitay’s shows–along with The Mysteries of Laura, starring Debra Messing–as ‘woman crush Wednesdays,’ and it’s easy to see why. Each of the three cop shows features a good-looking, really sharp woman at its helm.
The Chicago PD star paid the Law & Order: SVU star quite the compliment while they were together in L.A. last week, however. She referred to Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson on the show) as a ‘badass.’ She shared the comment as the caption of an Instagram post.
“#fbf working with my idol @therealmariskahargitay who is now my friend (whaaaat?!) for the first time on @NBCSVU,” Sophia captioned, adding, “She’s the epitome of a badass. An example. And a courageous heart. #ilovemyjob #gratitude #pinchme #badbitches.”
Sophia Bush is pretty ‘badass’ herself. In her role as Detective Erin Lindsay, she recently transferred from the Chicago Police Department to the FBI. However–and this is a spoiler alert–on Wednesday night’s episode she banged on her father figure, mentor, and former boss Hank Voight’s back door late and night, and asked for her job back.
Fans didn’t expect–or at least they didn’t hope–that Erin Lindsay would stay away from her old stomping grounds for long.
Are you a Chicago PD and/or a Law & Order: SVU fan? Which of these two female detectives–Sophia Bush or Mariska Hargitay–would you call the most ‘badass?’
