Yvonne Strahovski was honored with the Breakthrough Award at the Australians in Film gala earlier this week, along with The Hunger Games‘ Liam Hemsworth. TVLine caught up with her on the red carpet and got some scoop on her post-Chuck career, including her mysterious new role on Dexter:
“I feel very lucky to have come from Chuck, and then gone straight into a movie, I, Frankenstein, and then to something completely different again with Dexter,” Strahovski said of her transition from one cult fave to another.
“Dexter is respected for the quality of work that the actors and the writers and everybody brings to that show,” she continued, praising the series she now calls home. “It’s just really nice to be part of something that’s so celebrated in this industry.”
… She did tease, cagily, that her character, Hannah McKay, is “a woman who is haunted by her past, and [becomes] involved in solving a murder through Dexter.”
Check out these gorgeous photos of Yvonne, practically glowing in her white evening gown.
