Mariska Hargitay returned to work on Monday after nearly three weeks away from the hit NBC crime drama, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, where she’s starred as Detective Olivia Benson for the past ten seasons.
The 44-year-old Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress first underwent surgery after suffering a partially collapsed lung in January. She returned to work later that month. Mariska was hospitalized a second time on March 3.
The cast of SVU will spend the week on-location in New York City, shooting an upcoming episode that will feature guest appearances by actresses Hilary Duff and Gail O’Grady.
