Upon graduating from the renowned Theatre Nepean (the prestigious actor training institution within the School of Contemporary Arts at the University of Western Sydney) in 2003, Yvonne Strahovski quickly established herself as a newcomer well worth watching.
Recognizing her talent, Australia’s Channel 7 soon snapped her up for its new drama series, “Headland.” Although the show was short-lived, it was enough to help get her cast opposite Colin Friels in the television movie “Blackjack-Dead Memory.” She then went on to play Martina in Channel 9′s drama-series, “Sea Patrol.”
Two short years later, Strahovski landed her first feature film, playing Sondra in “Middle of Nowhere.” This was closely followed by the soon-to-be-released psychological thriller, “The Plex.”
Strahovski also has a passionate interest in theater as both an actor and writer. Earlier this year, she resurrected her cult play, “Kieslowski’s Neck,” which opened to rave reviews in Sydney.
Within days of her arrival in Los Angeles just a few short months ago, Strahovski immediately landed her role in NBC’s “Chuck.” Currently, Strahovski is filming “The Canyon” opposite Eion Bailey, a thriller directed by Richard Harrah. As her name suggests, she is of Polish descent and speaks fluent Polish. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
