Dexter: Yvonne Strahovski crams for her role as ‘not just a regular girl’
Zap2it: As you begin your run on « Dexter » this week, how much can you reveal about your new character, Hannah?
Yvonne Strahovski: I guess the one thing I can say is that it’s completely different from what most people know me from, which is « Chuck, » playing someone who’s a member of law enforcement. I’m not just a « regular girl » here, which you find out fairly quickly.
Zap2it: Is any certain skill that you learned for « Chuck » proving helpful here?
Yvonne Strahovski: Not other than just the general experience of doing television for five years. That was the first big show I did here in the States, so I certainly learned a lot from it, even the most basic things about appearing on camera. I had only worked for three years in Australia prior to starting « Chuck, » so I guess I’m an old pro now! You learn something new every time.
Zap2it: Your new role keeps you in close proximity to Dexter himself, so how was it to work with Michael C. Hall?
Yvonne Strahovski: He’s such a giving actor … extremely generous, a real actor’s actor. He’s so easy to work with, and it’s really nice to have that. He’s super-talented, as is everyone who works on the show, so I feel really blessed.
Zap2it: Did you see much of « Dexter » while you were making « Chuck »?
Yvonne Strahovski:I watched all six seasons back to back over three weeks. I had seen bits and pieces, but I’d never seen it consecutively. I really wanted to get the history of it.Credit : Zap2it – Follow Zap2it on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest news and buzz
