|While she's asked to be released early from her "Law & Order" contract, actress Angie Harmon isn't giving up on acting all the way.|
Before her fiance, New York Giants cornerback Jason Sehorn, taped his acting debut -- a guest spot on NBC's "Third Watch -- which aired Monday (April 16), Harmon gave him a few tips.
" I just told him to be yourself and don't be afraid of anything," Harmon admitted in an interview on the " Today" show.
Unlike many celebrities who make guest spots and play themselves, Sehorn got to try on a character for size -- that of an arrogant firefighter.
" I was excited for him," says Harmon. " He'd been wanting to do it for quite some time."
Harmon, 28, and Sehorn, 30, are getting married this summer. Sehorn proposed to the actress on the " Tonight Show" last March."
