Local fans of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” a popular NBC program, may have noticed a familiar face on the Nov. 30 episode.

Lili Reinhart, a 15-year-old sophomore at Bay High School, was scheduled to make her primetime TV acting debut on the police drama. She played a principal role as a teenage character named Courtney Lane.

“It’s all pretty incredible, and I’m honestly very excited,” Reinhart said. “It was very different from everything I’ve done before. A lot more crazy — very fast-paced.”

Reinhart spoke with Sun News prior to the episode airing, so she couldn’t discuss details of her role. However, she had the opportunity to appear with most of the show’s major characters.

“I got to work with incredible actors and actresses who were so experienced, and they definitely taught me a lot,” she said. “It was really great to work with professional actors.”
