Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode ‘Dare’ airs this evening — and here’s all the cast details.

The episode, Season 19 Episode 16, sees a criminal case launched when a girl tragically dies and a surgeon harvests her organs without getting consent from her parents.

Janel Moloney guest-stars as Dr. Lorraine Franchella. Moloney will be know to fans of The Leftovers, in which she played Mary Jamison, and American Crime, in which she played Raelyn.

Meanwhile, Callie Thorne guest-stars as Nikki Staines. Thorne is probably best known for her roles as Captain Nancy Santiani in The Mysteries of Laura and Dr. Dani Santino on the USA Network series Necessary Roughness, as well as for playing Elena McNulty in The Wire and Detective Laura Ballard in Homicide: Life on the Street.

She has also appeared as Nikki Staines in three previous episodes of SVU over the years.

Dare also sees relative newcomer Eloise Lushina play Lily Winterburn, and Jennifer Gambatese as Meredith Bergkamp with Alfredo Narciso as Dylan Bergkamp.
