Martha on Law & Order

Be sure to watch Martha guest star on Law & Order SVU tonight! Martha plays Eleanor Hastings, the headmaster of a private school. Hastings is interviewed by Officer Olivia Benson (played by Mariska Hargitay) about allegations regarding a former teacher's innapropriate relationship with one of the students. The episode airs at 10PM EST on NBC. Martha also guest starred on an episode of 2 Broke Girls (playing herself) and was featured on the PBS series Finding Your Roots, which I watched Sunday night. It was a very informative look at Martha's ancestral past. The findings of the show revealed that Martha's great grandparents may have been killed in Poland by invading Bolsheviks. As an orphan, Martha's grandmother journeyed by ship to New York when she was just 16 with only $2 to her name. There is also evidence that Martha may have had Muslim ancestors dating back to the time of Genghis Khan! You can see excerpts here.

Hi Andrew, I can't wait to watch Law and Order and 2 Broke Girls with Martha. Wow interesting to know about her ancestral past. I did not watch it, is there a link To the episode!


Rowaida, Martha was only on camera for 45 seconds but it was still fun to watch. You can see the PBS special at their website. I've now posted the link in the blog.
