Carter teams up with actress Estella Warren to play a ruthless mother-daughter team of con-artists who manage to escape prosecution on SVU, but get their comeuppance on Law & Order.
The 54-year-old actress says shes been waiting for a bad-girl role after playing the heroine for 30 years.
She says it was about three or four years ago she decided she wanted a role much more out of the box, but despite being evil, she says she still had to make the character likeable.
In Carters words, You cant be a good grifter unless youre likeable.
Carter may leave her goodie-two-shoes hung up for a little while longer: She makes her London stage debut today (Sep. 26) playing the corrupt prison matron Mama Morton in Chicago.
The SVU episode airs tomorrow (Sep. 27) on NBC while the Law & Order episode airs Wednesday (Sep. 28).
