One of the more delightful developments of 2015 has been the emergence of a friendship between pop princess Taylor Swift and TV queen Mariska Hargitay (who’s been starring in “Law & Order: SVU” since 1999).

It may have all begun when Swift named her kitten after Hargitay’s “SVU” character, Olivia Benson, but it definitely picked up steam when the pair met at the Met Gala and bonded. Hargitay has since appeared in Swift’s “Bad Blood” video and onstage during her most recent tour.

And as the Emmy winner told TODAY.com, the friendship endures. “It has been such a treat and a joy and a surprise,” she said. “She is so lovely and mature and has really inspired me.”

Taylor Swift is inspiring? Yep. And it’s all about a song.

“The song ‘Shake It Off’ touched me deeply, profoundly,” revealed Hargitay.

That’s right; while most of us were just finding goofy ways to parody the delightful dance tune, the earnest actress was looking deeper.

“I thought, ‘What a beautiful message to send to people,'” she continued. “I’ve certainly had thin skin at times, and things hurt my feelings and you sit there and go, ‘Why do you let that hurt your feelings? And you know what? Shake it off and move on.’ What a beautiful lesson. … There are certain things in life we need to put our attention on and there’s other things we don’t.”

A reaction that seems totally natural from the woman behind Olivia Benson, who was just voted the most popular (by a wide margin) female character on TV. Hargitay is set to return for her 17th season on Sept. 23 and is one of Olivia’s biggest fans.

“She is fearless, a lioness, a protector and she’s compassionate and empathetic,” she said. “So we feel safe with her and it’s all those feminine things we are and yet she is not pigeonholed, because she is a badass. … She does it all; it’s not easy, but she doesn’t quit trying. Takes the hit, gets up again. She’s really the Terminator.”

Still, even the Terminator might have been a little intimidated by joining Swift in the middle of her concert. “The first time I went onstage in Philly, I was like, ‘I don’t know what’s happening!’,” laughed Hargitay.

So will we get Swift — or other members of her posse — on board at “SVU”?

“We can only hope,” said Hargitay. But then she whispered behind her hand, “I think so!”

“Law & Order: SVU” returns to NBC on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. ET

There’s no doubt Taylor Swift is an unabashed fan of Olivia Benson, the Manhattan police sergeant on Law & Order: SVU played by Mariska Hargitay. Not only is one of her cats named after the character, Swift even invited Hargitay to be a part of her ever-growing squad, which includes Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, and Selena Gomez, when the actress appeared in “Bad Blood” music video.

So it made perfect sense to ask the 51-year-old actress if Swift would return the favor and appear on an episode of the long-running NBC crime drama.

“We just talked about it,” Hargitay told ET during a break from filming. “We’re going to wait until the end of the [1989 World] tour to see how it goes. But it’s in the air.”

While fans will have to wait mid-December before the show can finalize plans with the singer, executive producer Warren Leight offered the next best solution. “We’re thinking of naming a squad room cat Taylor,” he said.

“The squad room needs to get a cat or I need to get a cat and name it Taylor,” Hargitay joked, “either one.”

When asked about appearing at the MTV Video Music Awards with Swift and her “Bad Blood” co-stars, Hargitay simply said it was “an experience” before adding: “The best part of going with Taylor and the girls was that they were so supportive, wonderful and fun.”

“It’s a good posse to jump into,” Hargitay said of her new gal pals.

Even though they’re working on getting Swift for the show, both Hargitay and Leight confirmed a few upcoming guest stars during ET’s visit to the set. Virginia Madsen (Sideways) will appear in episode six as the mother of Det. Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Adrienne Moore (Cindy on Orange Is the New Black) is in the second episode.

The two-premiere will feature Dallas Roberts (The Good Wife) as a Robert Durst-inspired killer and mark the return of Elizabeth Marvel (House of Cards) as Counselor Rita Calhoun.

Meanwhile, cast members of the hit Broadway musical, Hamilton, will make their way through SVU. Daveed Diggs, who plays Thomas Jefferson on stage, will reunite with his Hamilton co-star Leslie Odom Jr., who recurs as Reverend Curtis Scott on the series.

“It was like SVU: The Musical,” Hargitay gushed about filming with the two stars just a day prior.

The new season of Law & Order: SVU premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m.
