Christopher Meloni starred as the tough New York cop Elliot Stabler for 12 seasons before leaving Law & Order: SVU in 2011, while Mariska Hargitay has remained on the show, currently in its 21st season, as Olivia Benson.
She posted a sweet birthday and congratulations message to her former partner-in-solving-crime to Instagram on April 2. “Happy Birthday @chris_meloni Congratulations and welcome home Elliot Stabler #It’sBeenAWhile #MissedYou #ElliotStabler,” she wrote.
