Wow Bethany Butler is amazing!
10 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Law and Order SVU Great Stories and great characters. But, I recently watched an episode called the Lowdown. It highlights a family broken up by deceit and lies to avoid the truth. It is such a good message to be honest and avoid hurting those you love. But, this episode really stood out to me because of the performance of the wife's character, from actress Bethany Butler. It was powerful and so real, It brought me to a stop with tears streaming down my face. What a powerful actress. She really lights up the screen with her performance. I hope this review gets to her. I am definitely a fan. I have checked her profile and there aren't very many acting spots listed. But, she is an AMAZING ACTRESS...GO BETHANY!! YOU GOT IT GIRL!!
