The new season only aired on 24 February but is already causing excitement among fans who have been waiting a long time for the return of the original show. 

Odelya took some time away before Law & Order returned 

This is a huge break for Odelya, who was born and raised in Israel but moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. 

It wasn't an easy transition, however, and she told Jewish Journal. "At the beginning, it was a real struggle. I worked at a restaurant. I met a lot of people there and took acting classes. 

Odelya stars alongside Hugh Dancy 

"I did a student film. I worked on my English while I was waiting for my green card. I got a commercial agent and I started doing commercials. I felt like I was ready for the next step."

Odelya has also landed a role alongside Dwayne Johnson in the DC movie, Black Adam, which will be released in July 2022. 

She's also had parts in NBC's Midnight, Texas, Good Girls Revolt and New Girl.
