Mariska Hargitay has revealed she now has a host of stunt doubles to help her out on the “Law & Order: SVU” set after she injured herself earlier this year performing her own on-set athletic feats.
“I’ve got a stunt double,” she told Access Hollywood on the red carpet at the Gracie Awards in New York City on Wednesday night. “I’ve got like three!”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the actress suffered a partially collapsed lung earlier this year, which she later revealed was the result of performing her own stunts. Mariska eventually had surgery for the condition and returned to work earlier this spring.
“Yes, I’m back,” she confirmed. “I’m fine. I had a little set back a couple of months, but all is well and I’ve full recuperated.”
Back to her old self, Mariska said she plans to take care in the future.
“I’m going to be very careful from now on,” she noted.
