A.D.A. Serena Southerlyn

Elisabeth Röhm


Elisabeth Röhm stars as the brilliant and aggressively ambitious Assistant District Attorney Serena Southerlyn in “Law & Order.” While studying writing and European history at Sarah Lawrence College, Röhm accidentally discovered acting when she landed a role in the drama department’s production of David Henry Hwang’s “Bondage” (as Madame Butterfly). Röhm’s first professional break came when she landed a role on the daytime drama “One Life to Live.” Soon after, she starred in Dick Wolf’s network television pilot, “The Invisible Man,” followed by a supporting role in the NBC’s miniseries, “The ‘60s,” and a starring role in the BBC miniseries, “Eureka Street.” From 1999-2000, Röhm pulled double duty as she concurrently starred in the cable drama series “Bull” and played the recurring role of the young and beautiful detective Kate Lockley on “Angel.” Röhm has also starred in several movies, including “American Hustle” and “Miss Congeniality II.”
