Olympic gold medallist Lindsey Vonn swapped the powdered mountains of Vail for the skyscrapers of Manhattan yesterday after landing a part on her favourite TV show, Law & Order.
Vonn has made no secret of her love of the show in the past, and when the show’s creator, Dick Wolf, found out he created a role for the champion skier.
And the 25-year-old, usually so ice cool on the slopes, was clearly a little nervous as she updated her Facebook page en route to the Big Apple. “On my way to NYC and shooting Law and Order tomorrow!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it!! I hope I get my lines right.”
Apparently Vonn will get to share screen time with series stars Jeremy Sisto, Anthony Anderson and Alana de la Garza as she plays an administrative assistant with a vital clue to a terrorist plot, in the season’s final episode.
And, she was clearly enjoying her day in front of the camera as she later Facebooked that she was in ‘Law & Order heaven.’
The episode is set to air in May, in America, but if you can’t wait that long to see Lindsey in all her glory, click here.
