"Gal" Friday! Yvonne Strahovski

Australian born Yvonne Strahovski speaks both Polish and English, thanks to her immigrant parents. After graduating from the University of Western Sydney, she acted in three Australian television shows before her successful audition for the role as Sarah Walker in the NBC television series, Chuck. Her acting career includes roles in both Australian and American movies, including a featured role in the upcoming action flick, The Killer Elite opposite Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro.

Yvonne was primarily selected as my "Gal" Friday this week due to her prominent voice role in the popular Bioware game that I've become addicted to, Mass Effect 2, in which she appears as the likeness & voice of Cerberus agent, Miranda Lawson. Yvonne is talented, sexy, and apparently quite smart; earning straight "A's" for her Bachelor of Arts degree.

That would all be more than enough to earn her a space, but the killer Aussie accent just sends it right over the top. I wonder if at twenty-eight, she would be foolish enough to blow off this whole acting gig and run away with me to some tropical island for a few decades?

Nah, but one can dream.
