Brooke Shields shares behind-the-scenes pic from 'Law & Order: SVU' set

Brooke Shields gave her Instagram followers an inside look into what it's like on the set of Law & Order: SVU. 

The 52-year-old actress nabbed a recurring role on season 19 of the long-running NBC series, and shared a pic earlier this week of her shooting with SVU's leading lady, Mariska Hargitay. 

"Back to work! In deep discussion with @therealmariskahargitay #BTS," Shields captioned the behind-the-scenes photo.

Shields announced last month that she would be joining the show, and hinted as to what fans can expect from her new role. “I play a very different character from any I have ever played,” she said in a statement. “I'm excited to stir the SVU pot a bit.”

Though specific details on her part are being kept under wraps, Shields' character is expected to shake things up for Olivia Benson (Hargitay).
