Hargitay Plans Return to Set Within Weeks

Mar 10, 2009 | 2:40pm EDT

Actress Mariska Hargitay is expected to make another swift return to the set of her hit TV series Law & Order: SVU -- just days after she was re-hospitalized for treatment of a partially collapsed lung.

The Emmy-winning star has been struggling with the injury since January, when she first underwent surgery after a sledge-riding accident.

Hargitay took two weeks out of her schedule to recover from the operation before heading back to work. But she was admitted to a New York hospital again last week after experiencing discomfort in her chest.

And, despite her previous experience, the 45-year-old is determined not to miss out on more work - she will rush back to the set in the next couple of weeks so she will only skip one episode of filming, according to her spokesman Gary Mantoosh.

Mantoosh has declined to say whether or not she remains hospitalized.
