On December 4, Ryan Buggle β€” who plays Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) adopted son, Noah β€” shared some snapshots of himself and Hargitay behind the scenes filming Season 25 of the show. First, we see Buggle and Hargitay looking intently at a camera before he and Hargitay smile and pose for a picture on set. 

"Bensons πŸ’™," Buggle captioned the post.

Four days before this, Buggle posted sweet pictures of himself outside of his trailer on the SVU set, grinning and jumping up into the air. 

"25!! Let's go!" he captioned the post. 

"Be still my benson heartβ™₯️" Hargitay captioned in support. 

Buggle and Hargitay seem to be very tight-knit. Hargitay even posted a heartfelt tribute to Buggle on his 13th birthday in February. 

"Happy birthday to this newly minted teenager! @ryanbuggle, you’ve always been wise β€” and magnificent and inspired and inspiring β€” beyond your years," Hargitay captioned the slideshow. "I cannot wait to see what your 13th year has in store. It’s been such a joy working with you and getting to know your beautiful heart. I love your spirit and I love you. Happy happy birthday! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽˆ #13 #Teenager #BestKidEver #Benoah #MyNoah." 

Buggle is living his best life as an SVU cast member. Not only is he besties with Hargitay, he gets to attend fun events, like New York Fashion Week this September. While he was there, he even had an unexpected reunion with his co-star, Ice T (Fin)

"Reunited with the coolest," Buggle wrote about the run-in.

Ryan Buggle talks working with Mariska Hargitay 

Buggle has nothing but kind words to say about his on-screen mama. "Working with her is like a dream," Buggle told People in April. "My favorite part of being on set is definitely creating the friendships that I have, the friends and family."

"Something recently I learned about acting β€” from Mariska, actually β€” is to always act with your heart and come from a real natural place," he said. "My favorite thing about her is that whenever we're on set, it's always an acting class. I really love her kindness."

He continued, "Mariska definitely knows me, Ryan, because sometimes when we're filming a scene instead of saying 'Noah,' she's like, 'Oh, Ryan.' Then she's like, 'Oh, I messed up!'"
