Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A willowy blonde, Stephanie March acted on stage in productions of "Death of a Salesman," "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Enchanted April" before landing a regular role on the popular spin-off drama series, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ). Although a theater actress at heart, the bubbly blonde more than mastered both film and TV genres, making an impression both on viewers and network executives and casting agents - specifically those from the Peacock network - who continued to place March in a wide variety of roles on the small screen. Born July 23, 1974 in Dallas to parents John Abe March IV and Laura Len Irwin, March was raised in San Angelo, TX, attending Highland Park High School - the same school as future franchise cohort, Angie Harmon of "Law & Order" fame would attend. As a young adult, March headed to Northwestern University outside of Chicago, where she found her greatest passion in studying theater. While in Illinois, she landed her first professional role, playing Helena in a Chicago stage production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." In 1998, she played Miss Forsythe in a Chicago production of "Death of a Salesman," reprising that role in the 50th anniversary Broadway...

Born July 23, 1974 in Dallas to parents John Abe March IV and Laura Len Irwin, March was raised in San Angelo, TX, attending Highland Park High School - the same school as future franchise cohort, Angie Harmon of "Law & Order" fame would attend. As a young adult, March headed to Northwestern University outside of Chicago, where she found her greatest passion in studying theater. While in Illinois, she landed her first professional role, playing Helena in a Chicago stage production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." In 1998, she played Miss Forsythe in a Chicago production of "Death of a Salesman," reprising that role in the 50th anniversary Broadway revival of the classic Arthur Miller drama. Having made her television debut in a 1997 episode of "Early Edition" (CBS, 1996-2000), March returned to the small screen when a performance from the Broadway run of "Death of a Salesman" was broadcast on Showtime in January 2000. A Hartford Stage Company presentation of "Enchanted April" featured the actress as the mysterious Lady Caroline in 2000 - the same year that she made her feature debut, playing a woman using a bicycle as a crutch to get over her broken heart in the independent drama, "Coasting." That fall, March made her TV series regular debut on the highly-rated "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," playing Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot from 2000-03. In the most important role of her career up until that time, she proved a versatile performer amidst the veteran cast, evincing her character's sympathy towards victims as well as her cool tenacity in the courtroom. After leaving the safety of her regular gig, March landed a role in the Chris Rock comedy "Head of State" (2003), as well as the part of a spy associate in the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt actioner, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (2005). In an odd, but reverential move, NBC wooed March back to TV to reprise her beloved Alexandra Cabot of "SVU," now a bureau chief, on the short-lived NBC courtroom drama, "Conviction" (2006). March returned again to the role, rejoining the cast of "SVU" for three seasons between 2009 and 2012. During this period, March also appeared in the Ricky Gervais comedy-drama "The Invention of Lying" (2009) and the Jesse Eisenberg/Tracy Morgan vehicle "Why Stop Now" (2012). After appearing in the final episode of cult sitcom "Happy Endings" (ABC 2011-13) as the eldest sister of Jane (Eliza Coupe) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert), March co-starred in indie horror "Innocence" (2013). She next appeared on TV in the recurring role of Mayor Carol Blanton in Jon Glaser's comedy "Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter" (Adult Swim 2015- ).
