In addition to our usual Chuck Year in Review feature, coming later this month, we thought it would be fun to take a look at what some of the Chuck cast and crew have done this year following the end of the series. See the complete round up here.
Chuck fans have known for a long time that Yvonne Strahovski was something special, and now the rest of the world is getting a chance to find that out for themselves. Yvonne spent her first year post-Chuck working on both the big screen and small screen, conquering Broadway, and gracing the pages of magazines. Here are the highlights of Yvonne’s very good year.
Yvonne kicked off the year as the new spokesperson for Sobe Lifewater with Coconut Water, sporting amazing bodypaint and a stunning smile in their ad campaign. She promoted that campaign and the end of Chuck in an adorable interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, then got emotional in our own countdown to the finale.
As the final episodes of Chuck aired in January, Yvonne was in Australia filming I, Frankenstein opposite Aaron Eckhart (coming to theaters September 2013). Upon wrapping that project, Yvonne laid low for a bit before the news broke in June that she’d landed a major recurring role on Dexter. Later that month she accepted the Breakthrough Award from Australians in Film.
In July, Yvonne was back in San Diego for the 7th time to promote the upcoming season of Dexter, and stopped by Nerd HQ for a Chuck reunion. She followed up that appearance with a panel at the annual Television Critics Association fall press tour to tease a bit more about her new role before returning to Miami to continue filming.
Even before Dexter premiered, we found out that Yvonne would be making her Broadway debut at the end of the year in a revival of the American classic Golden Boy. Her first episode of the serial killer series aired in October, and she’ll (possibly) wrap up her run with the season finale on December 16.
Meanwhile, Yvonne graced the pages of O Magazine‘s November issue modeling nine colorful looks in a beautiful fashion spread. That same month she appeared at a photo call for Golden Boy as rehearsals got underway in New York. The production officially opened in December, and reviews of Yvonne’s performance as Lorna are outstanding.
With Dexter wrapping up a rejuvenated season on Sunday, a movie she worked on last year – The Guilt Trip – opening December 19, Golden Boy running on Broadway through January 20, and I, Frankenstein coming next Fall, it’s a good time to be a fan of Yvonne Strahovski.
