Law & Order: SVU fans are still reeling from a terrifying encounter with "William Lewis" in seasons 14 and 15. Actor Pablo Schreiber portrayed the disturbed serial killer and rapist who threatened the life and career of "Benson" (Mariska Hargitay). Let's take a look at what the talented SVU actor is up to today.

"William Lewis" gave Law & Order: SVU fans a serious scare in seasons 14 and 15. "Lewis," a serial killer and rapist, was initially arrested for exposing himself in public. But the arrest escalated into a disturbing abduction of "Olivia Benson," which left her traumatized. 

She'd later face "Lewis" in court, where he was sentenced to 25 years, only to escape soon after. The ordeal, followed by more killings, led to another confrontation between "Lewis" and "Benson" where he forced her into a game of Russian Roulette. "Lewis" eventually killed himself, but framed "Benson" for the act.
