Episode 15 | Jamie Gray Hyder is the New “Bulldawg” in Blue on Law & Order: SVU

Actress and UGA grad Jamie Gray Hyder joins this episode to talk about all things UGA and what it’s like to be the new bulldawg in blue on Law & Order: SVU! As the new series regular, she talks about what it’s like work with Ice-T or “Uncle Ice” as she thoughtfully refers to him as and Marsika Hargitay. She also reflects on her days at UGA, being on the international sensation True Blood, and how she became the star of one of the most successful video game franchises ever – Call of Duty. As an ethnically diverse female actress, she also opens up about the sense of responsibility she feels when representing her Lebanese-American roots in the characters she plays, and she shares about the rollercoaster that being in the entertainment business can take you on, including the time when she had to file for unemployment. Oh and by the way she is not only smart, savvy, mutli-talented, and successful, she gives back by lending her star status to helping various veteran causes as well.

If you were a True Blood fan, you may remember her as the strikingly beautiful and badass werewolf Danielle on Seasons 5 and 6! For fans of hers and the show, she gives us a little insight on what it was like to be on the set and work with the infamous cast, which starred Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgård, to name a few.

You can catch the accomplished UGA graduate from the Franklin College of Arts & Sciences (with a degree in Theater & Film Studies) in her latest role as Officer Kat Azar Tamin in Law & Order: SVU.
