Mariska Hargitay can currently be seen as Detective Olivia Benson on Law and Order: SVU. Her official website Mariska.Com has everything to make fans happy.
Mariska has the usual bio and photos, but also offers things like “Ask Mariska.” Fans can submit questions and Mariska answers them. She also has a blog, used to keep fans updated on what she is doing.
Mariska also talks about “The Joyful Heart Foundation,” established in 2002 by Mariska to help victims of sexual assault with dolphin therapy.
There is also a store on her site, you can view journals, a notebook, and a photo album with Mariska’s site logo. She provides links to the NBC store for SVU items and a site for “Joyful Heart Foundation” jewelry.
The site provides a self-esteem quiz and polls on topics of general interest. There are also screensavers any fan would love to have. I’m most impressed with her “Resources” section. It has links to sites that provide assistance to rape victims, those with eating disorders, and even some for sexual orientation.
I’m a fan of SVU and of Mariska’s. I was pleased to see that Mariska’s site makes it clear she takes her position as a role model very seriously. Her site is informative but also a safe place for fans. Mariska isn’t just a really good actress, she is a really good person. She appears to embrace her fan following a show like SVU brings forward. As the Public Service Announcement on her website and her foundation demonstrate, you can see Mariska cares!Powered by Sidelines
