Yvonne Strahovski plays Sarah Walker
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, who plays Sarah Walker in "Chuck," quickly established herself as a newcomer well worth watching.
Recognizing her talent, Australia's Channel 7 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 telefilm "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 psychological thriller "The Plex."
Strahovski also has a passionate interest in theatre as both an actor and a writer. She recently resurrected her cult play, "Kieslowski's Neck," which opened to rave reviews in Sydney.
Within days of her recent arrival in Los Angeles, Strahovski landed her role in "Chuck."
Strahovski stars in the upcoming "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 resides in Los Angeles.Chuck names, characters and related indicia are trademarks and © Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. TM & © 2008 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.
