    Lahti is an exceptional actress, but it seems like she would be wasted on this series where she might be lucky to get 15 minutes of airtime.

    Christine Lahti is a fabulous actress. And I’ll enjoy watching her on SVU as much as I did watching Kelly Bishop. But as far as I’m concerned, you could stick Elmo in that role, as long as it leads to Stephanie March coming back!!!

    Meh. Bring back CASEY NOVAK !
    Novak was fired to cut the show cost, but now you bring on Lahti who Im sure charges more. WTF ?

  • Matthew C

    now THAT is some good casting. I can only imagine what kind of complex, layered character she will create. She and Meloni and Hargitay all on one show sounds like perfection to me.

    Ok, I know I never did see the episode this season that brought back Stephanie March, but what happened to the last ADA (Miceala – can’t remember last name. Sorry)?
    And did they explain how Stephanie’s character left the Witsec program?
    And better yet, when will they book her husband Bobby Flay to play a role?

    I really like christine lahti, but i really like casey novak….bring her back i like the relationship between her and olivia…..ciao

    Alexandra Kabbot is my favorite ADA. But Casey Novak was a close second. The third one though, didn’t care for her character at all. So I’m interested to see if I like these first four episodes.

      If you really did like Alex CABOT u would have spelled it right. Are u still in pre-school now….

    Alex had to get out of witsec to testify against the guy who shot her. Then she was on Conviction as the Bureau Chief.
    Bobby Flay WAS on one episode, where this girl was giving famous guys roofies and cattle prodding them for their sperm. He played a famous chef. :) It also had Mark McGrath and some athlete I should have recognized.

    The episode that brough back Stephanie March as Alex Cabot was season 10 “Lead”. Michaela McManus’s character, Kim Greyleck, was written out as having been recalled to Washington by the Department of Justice. They didn’t really explain how Cabot left the program on SVU.

    Not really a waste of Lahti. Actors who do a lot of theater love these gigs because they pay very well and give them the freedom to do off-off-Broadway shows that tend not to pay very much.

    omg, eat a sandwich!

  • Marsha

    Thank goodness Lahti is only temporary, I much prefer Stephanie March.

  • Isolde

    It will be interesting to see what Christine Lahti does in her short-term role. She’s always good in whatever she’s doing. But I’m happy to have Alex back full time! She was the best ADA hands down. I liked Casey as well, but Alex will always be my fave.

  • laura

    and thank god the rumours about diane neal coming back were just rumours, because she was the worstt
