Chuck star Yvonne Strahovski talked with the Chicago Tribune’s Mo Ryan about last night’s episode of Chuck, the season so far, and what’s on the way, plus she answered some fan questions. Here’s an excerpt:
There was a lot for Sarah to deal with in Season 3 — opening up to Chuck, then him choosing not to run off with her, her watching him change and contending with her own feelings and all that. Was this the most challenging season for you as an actress or was it on par with the previous seasons?
I loved this season. I feel like it just gets better every season. The more complicated it gets, the more fun I have as an actress doing it. There were so many layers. The journey this season was kind of more complicated. She wanted to [run off] and Chuck rejected that idea, and I don’t think she was expecting that at all. That was a big, giant slap in the face. I think she wanted to open up but that kind of stopped her and she went back to square one.
After [Monday's "Chuck" episode], I think it’s such a relief for her. She tried to find something else with Shaw but it’s just not the same. They both realized that whatever they were trying to look for in other people, they’re never going to find it, because it’s right there in front of them.
