55 Hottest Women in Television

1. Yvonne Strahovski what can I say…I’m a Chuck fanboy! Australia…you’ve done it once again! Bravo! The daughter of Polish immigrants was relatively new to acting when she moved to Los Angeles, and three days later got the role of Sarah Walker, on Chuck! Has the cutest little buck teeth that lets us know she’s only human. But I’m not buying it! Now that Chuck has ended, it looks like her career will only get stronger. Might be seeing her more on the big screen than television. Currently filming, I, Frankenstein. Side note: Ironically she moved her parents to California to be closer to them, and now her current film is shooting in Australia.

Yvonne Strahovski Interview in askmen

Talk to me about My Mother’s Curse, your upcoming comedy with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand. 

It was really exciting! I auditioned for that and got it, and it was great working with Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen. I feel lucky that I got to work with some of the big legends in town. 

What was it like working with Seth Rogen?

His laugh is the greatest thing ever. It’s so unique! He was very chill, and the dynamic between Barbra and Seth was great. I’m excited to see what they’re like on-screen. It’s a very cool combo.

Why do you think so many Australians have found success in Hollywood?I think most of us come from a training background, so we studied it, and we have a real sense of the art of it, and most of us are trained to do an American accent, which is something you definitely need. I think, especially for males, they tend to be quite rugged and scruffy, and I think the industry here likes that kind of energy for their leading men.
