Mariska also shared a series of photos of herself and Ice-T on the set of SVU – see below.

The “Law and Order: SVU” actors have worked together since the premiere of the NBC drama’s second season in 2000.

Back in 2018, Hargitay and Ice dished about their friendship and two decades of working together in an interview with E!

“People through the word family around, but after 20 years its true, it’s the real deal,” Hargitay said about working with Ice. She went on to praise his work ethic.

“I’ve never seen—in 20 years—this man come to work in a bad mood, not be grateful, always ready to work…he’s never complained, I’ve never heard him complain,” she said.

“Also, I think, your gift, he has the ability to no matter what we’re talking…about to distill it down to its purest essence” Hargitay added.

Ice also noted the best advice he’s shared on the set.

“I just believe everybody needs a reference point to f—k up, right?…We’re on a set, we’re making movies and you can feel bad, but I’ve been through some bad things, so I always use that as a reference point to be like, ‘Shut up. Relax. You’re lucky. You’re fortunate.’ And then…You know what I’m saying? You got fans. Like, what? You got a lot of nerve to be upset. So, I just bring it right back and then I try to transfer that to everybody on set. Like, ‘Look, we’re all very lucky and let’s just be blessed, you know? And take advantage of it,” he said.

“That is the truth,” Hargitay added.
