Taylor Swift fans know that the singer is a huge fan of Law & Order: SVU –– after all, she named one of her cats Olivia Benson, after Mariska Hargitay‘s character on the long-running drama. So it’s no wonder that the show’s writers are all fine with the idea of a Taylor cameo.
A Taylor Swift fan tweeted to a few of the show’s writers and the show’s producer, “Petition to have @taylorswift13 star on @nbcsvu.” One of the writers to whom she directed the tweet, Warren Leight, replied, “Cosign.”
Many fans were excited about the prospect, though quite a few insisted that should Taylor appear on the show, she should play a villain. Others said she should only appear if her cat Olivia is allowed to guest star as well.
One fan with a good memory recalled that Taylor was “pretty good” when she appeared on CSI as a teen, adding, “So I’d be interested to see this.” Other fans said they’d rather see other female singers guest-star, including Sara Bareilles, Demi Lovato, and Amy Lee from Evanescence.
As a reminder, Hargitay played “Justice” in Taylor’s Bad Blood video, which included a head-spinning array of guest stars, from Gigi Hadid and Lena Dunham to Hailee Steinfeld and Zendaya.
