‘Dexter,’ ‘Chuck’ star Yvonne Strahovski onstage
Question of the Day
Strahovski: I can’t reveal much. It’s so hard to talk about. And I haven’t even caught up with the last two episodes. My cable didn’t turn on last night and I was on hold for 40 minutes with Time Warner. You should print that! I was on hold for 40 minutes and nobody answered the phone.
AP: Were you a fan of “Dexter” before you landed a job on it?
Strahovski: I had seen bits and pieces but I had never watched episode after episode. So I actually sat down and watched all six seasons back-to-back for three weeks before I started shooting.
AP: What kind of mood were you in after that?
Strahovski: I was mixed. I was having some weird dreams and when I finally got to the set, everyone was their character. I had a really hard time calling Jennifer `Jennifer’ and not Debra, and Michael `Michael’ and not Dexter. I was so in that world.
AP: Your accents are always pretty good. How do you do it?
Strahovski: My first language was Polish _ my whole family is Polish. I’m the only Australian. So I think because of that, I have maybe an ear for different types of sounds and my mouth is used to using different muscles.
AP: What strange skills have you learned in your career?
Strahovski: I know how to punch properly. I know how to kick really well. I now know how to use a gun, especially a 9 mmm Smith and Wesson. I like to think I can defend myself if I ever got mugged, but who knows? In the moment I might shrivel up.
AP: When you have any downtime, where can we find you?
Strahovski: If I got a small amount of time, I would usually probably veg out on the couch to some sort of brainless television. But my cable hasn’t been working so I’ve been spending a lot of time on Skype with my friends. I switch off with my friends and my parents. I seem to live on Skype because my dearest are so far away.
