Curt at Show Patrol has a new interview with Yvonne Strahovski that asks some serious Chuck/Sarah questions balanced with some silly geek questions. Check it out an excerpt:
First off, I need to clear something up. When they pitched this interview they wrote in the email “things are heating up” between you and Zachary Levi. What does that mean? Do they mean the characters or you two? They giving me some romance scoop?
Oh, God no. [Laughs.] Yes, we’ve announced marriage. [Laughs.] No, no no no–the characters! Yeah, things are getting heated in more ways than one because now we’re a couple. We’re boyfriend and girlfriend. We’re living together. We’re going through all the couple drama that one would expect a new couple to go through, so there are the things that we explore with that.
Will Chuck and Sarah be asking Ellie and Awesome for advice?
I don’t know if Sarah would be open to that. [Laughs.] It’s funny, because I think my character likes being part of a relationship. Obviously she loves Chuck a lot and she likes having him as her boyfriend, but at the same time it’s such new territory for her because he is such an innocent guy still and he is not like the other men that she’s been with who have all been spies. To her this is a far more normal relationship and she is a little bit of a fish out of water in some ways, so I think they’re sort of discovering their needs and wants and that maybe some of their needs and wants are different from the other. It makes for some good drama.
Last season when you two were split up there was a lot of fan uproar. I wasn’t one of the fans who was totally freaking out, but I do like it better when Sarah and Chuck are together. How do you feel about that?
I like Chuck and Sarah together. I think there is more fun to be had with that and also, like you said, all the fans want them together more so than apart. There was a big uproar when we had Daniel Shaw come in and threaten to take Sarah away from Chuck for good. … I get to be closer to more of the fun stuff on the show. I’ve always been part of the serious stuff and the spy stuff and I feel like now that Chuck and Sarah are together I’m seeing the scripts come in and I’m getting to play around with the fun things, like the whole sexting thing that was going on in the first episode with Morgan and even in one of the episodes last season where Chuck and Sarah were together on the mission in Europe on the train and we played that southern couple.
