Giddish further stated her working relationship with Scanavino helps the process for the actors and adds to their chemistry: "We make the most out of it, because we are good friends in real life, and I do rely on him and his friendship.
"So I think that shines through any time we get a chance to act together on screen."
"Peter and I talk about, 'Oh God, what if they ever put our characters together?' And it's such a solid friendship that you don't get to see [on TV much]," she teased.
The Law and Order star did add, however: "So we're... for lack of a better word, it is precious to us. And to treat that with respect, is what it is.
"I think there's a little thing about Rollins that she has the fast-and-loose in her, and the impulsiveness. So if I had to answer your question, I guess I'd say Rollins."
