Yvonne Strahovski is an Australian actress best known for her starring role as Sarah Walker in the television action comedy series Chuck, from 2007-2012.
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, Strahovski quickly established herself as a promising newcomer.
Australia's Channel 7 soon snapped her up for its drama series, Headland, in 2006. 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 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 writer. Earlier in 2007, 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.
In 2008 she filmed The Canyon opposite Eion Bailey, a thriller directed by Richard Harrah.
She is of Polish descent and speaks fluent Polish. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
