Medium is crossing over into Law & Order: SVU territory. Find out which star of the canceled show will be making an appearance on SVU.

Sofia Vassilieva on Law & Order

Actress Sofia Vassilieva, who played Patricia Arquette's daughter Ariel Dubois in Medium for six seasons, has been cast in an emotional role on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU.

Vassilieva, 18, will be playing a middle-class teen that comes from the suburbs to New York City on a piano scholarship when she is attacked and raped in her apartment. Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age) will be making his debut performance as a defense lawyer that is hired by her attacker.

The young actress is used to emotional roles, as she also played Kate, a girl with leukemia, in the movie My Sister's Keeper, starring Cameron Diaz.

Law & Order: SVU is gearing up for big changes next season, as Christopher Meloni, who has played Detective Elliot Stabler for twelve years, will be leaving the show.

"It is true -- 12 great years and time for the next chapter," his rep reports.

Mariska Hargitay will continue to be on the show -- but it will be scaled back so she can spend more time with her family. Jennifer Love Hewitt is rumored to be in talks to have a lead role in the show.
