The Washington Post has a new interview with Yvonne Strahovski highlighting her Broadway debut in Golden Boy. The online version of the article isn’t very long, but there may be more in the print version. Here’s an excerpt:
It was while filming “I, Frankenstein” in Australia that Strahovski went to a comedy festival and was reminded how much she adored performing live. Right about then, Broadway was calling — and she leapt. “There’s something completely raw and unique about live theater and it puts you on your toes,” she says.
Strahovski says the play is still revealing itself to her and she’s stretching her acting muscles alongside a cast of 19 that includes Danny Burstein and Tony Shalhoub.
Complex Magazine has a fun new interview with Yvonne Strahovski in their December/January issue, including gorgeous new photos and a cute video (below). Here’s an excerpt from the interview.
How do you punish people who do you wrong?
I drug them and take them out to a forest, where I wrap them in plastic and—oh, wait, that’s Dexter.
What’s the shadiest thing you’ve discovered about someone you’ve dated?
On our first date, one guy farted loudly in front of me. I considered that shady for a split second, before I burst into laughter and thought, Wow, he’s a keeper.
What do fans ask you to say most often in your Australian accent?
Everyone loves to hear me say “no.” When an Aussie says “no,” you can hear all the vowel sounds in the alphabet. I often get made fun of for it.
Showtime has a new video interview with Yvonne Strahovski talking about her character on Dexter and undertaking the challenge of playing someone “on the other side of the law.” Watch the interview below.
In their Fall TV preview issue, TV Guide Magazine caught up with Yvonne Strahovski to chat about her role in Dexter this season (her first episode airs October 14). It’s a brief piece, but she does let slip that her character, Hanna McKay, is an investigator who has a “checkered past” with her boyfriend. Apparently Dexter sees a kindred spirit in her and they form “a deep connection.” Click the image below to enlarge.

Yvonne Strahovski is the October cover girl for Maxim magazine. Here’s an excerpt from her interview:
They say you’ve only truly made it in Hollywood if you call Robert De Niro “Bob.” Did you?
I’ve called him Bob, so I guess I’ll tick that one off the bucket list.
How was meeting him?
I just knocked on his trailer door and there he was! I felt like a kid in a candy store; I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.
Is Jason Statham a total badass?
No, he’s not Mr. Tough Guy or anything. He’s not ready to punch someone at all times.
As far as love interests go, you could do worse than him.
Yes, you certainly could! But we sort of had a brother-sister thing going on, which is gross, because we play lovers in Killer Elite.
Your character works on a farm. Is that how you grew up in Australia?
Yes and no. I grew up in the suburbs of Sydney, but I spent lots of time in the bush, hiking and rock climbing and running around. So those scenes were very much in my comfort zone.
Emmy4Yvonne.com has an exclusive interview with Yvonne Strahovski talking about playing Sarah Walker, her exceptional performance in “Chuck vs. Phase Three”, and their Emmy campaign:
Episode 4.09 became a fan-favorite solely because of your powerful, emotionally charged performance. You revealed Sarah’s vulnerability and her utter devotion to Chuck, which are aspects of Sarah’s character never blatantly shown before. What was the most enjoyable part about exploring this unseen, emotional side of Sarah? What was the biggest challenge in conveying/depicting this unseen side?
“This episode, hands down, was certainly the most challenging because yes, it did ask me to push Sarah Walker to a completely new level. The thing that was extremely important to me, was making it clear that nothing mattered to Sarah Walker anymore. She didn’t care about ANYTHING except finding Chuck. She didn’t care what she had to lose, who she had to fight, or who she had to betray – nothing was more important then finding Chuck. The other aspect of the episode that was hugely important – was the scene where she finds him – the pay off – for all her hard work leading up to that point. I felt it had to match the extreme lengths that Sarah Walker had gone through, throughout the episode, and that’s why it was so emotional.
If I was going to say what was the most challenging? I would have to say it was the scene where I’m putting amonia in the needle and interrogating the Thai ambassador. Only because the director (Anton Cropper) and I wanted it to be a particular note – somewhere between chilling and determined and not caring about anything other then Chuck.
The most enjoyable? Definitely the fight scene! It took about 10 hours to shoot the fight scene in the pit and I had a blast every second. It’s for sure my favorite one so far.”
