Stunning Yvonne Strahovski of "Chuck" and "Dexter"
Yvonne Strahovski (born Yvonne Jaqueline Strzechowski (30 July 1982) is an Australian actress, though of Polish extraction.Yvonne's parents immigrated to Australia from Warsaw, Poland, and thereafter had baby Yvonne in Campbelltown, a suburb of Sydney. Yvonne has become a phenomenon in Hollywood, a talented actress who leaps from one recurring hole in a successful series after another.
Strahovski started her career in Australia appearing in local film and TV roles in the early 2000s.
Yvonne appeared on the satirical show "Double the Fist." She also had the recurring role of Freya Lewis in the Australian drama series "Headland" from 2005-6 as well as appearing on Channel Nine's "Sea Patrol" in 2007. Yvonne used various permutations of her name during her early roles before finally settling on Yvonne Strahovski for good around 2008.
Yvonne was developing a successful career Down Under, but the real action was across the Pacific. In the United States to audition for some television roles in 2007, Yvonne sent an audition tape to the producers of "Chuck." They immediately called her in and cast her as Sarah Walker. This serendipitous event was as close to an overnight success story as you get in the real world - an overnight success that she had been working on for several years.
After "Chuck" ended after a long run, Yvonne Strahovski took on the role of Hannah McKay in "Dexter." She played Hannah McKay during the 2012-13 season for 17 episodes.
After "Dexter," Yvonne was quite in demand as a character actress. She was in a succession of series.
First came a recurring role of Kate Morgan for a dozen episodes in "24: Live Another Day" in 2014.
After "24," Yvonne played Rene Carpenter for 10 episodes on "The Astronaut Wives Club" in 2015.
Then, Yvonne snagged the role of Serena Joy on "The Handmaid's Tale" in 2017.
In between her episodic television roles, Yvonne Strahovski also has continued a film career. She stars in "The Predator" (2018), "He's Out There" (2017) and "All I See Is You" (2016). She has top billing in all of those projects.
Fortunately for her many fans, Yvonne's roles somehow always manage to get her dressed in sexy leather jackets or leather boots or leather gloves or some combination of those things which shows her off to her best effect. One of the most stunning actresses working in Hollywood today, Yvonne has a long career ahead of her!
