If a Daniel Durant fan club mobilizes during his Dancing with the Stars run, he can count on Camryn and Milo Manheim to lead the charge.

Camryn, 61, told PEOPLE she and her son are "rooting" for Durant's success — an especially strong endorsement since Milo, 21, and his partner Witney Carson finished second on DWTS back in 2018.

"Milo and I are rooting for him," the Law & Order star told PEOPLE Monday night — just hours before DWTS's season 31 premiere. "We have definitely made it known he's our guy."

Camryn previously worked alongside Durant, 32, in Deaf West Theatre's 2015 Broadway revival of Spring Awakening. While she hasn't given him any advice on navigating the dance show just yet, the actress has complete faith that Durant will go far.

"He's going to be great," she said. "I did a play with him, and he is so talented and brilliant and he could dance. So he's going to be good."

Durant is the third deaf person to compete on the series after his CODA costar Marlee Matlin and model Nyle DiMarco, who won the Mirrorball Trophy in 2016.

Durant is currently partnered with pro dancer Britt Stewart. The pair performed a tango to "Barbra Streisand" by Duck Sauce and received a score of 27 out of 40 from the judges.

As Camryn continues to cheer fro Durant from the sidelines, fans will soon be able to see her appear in Law & Order's highly anticipated three-hour crossover. Casts from Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Organized Crime will come together in the historic TV event.

"It was exciting because I hadn't done anything like this before," said Camryn, who plays Lieutenant Kate Dixon. "I've been around the block. I have, and I get to do something that's so brand new. I've done a crossover before when I was on The Practice and Ally McBeal, but our studios were right next door to each other. We all knew each other. That just seemed like no big deal."

Teasing the epic TV event further, Camryn said that "this seems really out there" compared to the previous crossover project she appeared in.

"We were jumping from the Law & Order set to the SVU set," she recalled. "It's rare we're all in the same place, so it was really great to know we could tell a story that was bigger than each of us, and we could use each others' resources to tell it and give justice to it."
