Yvonne Strahovski is known for her role as Sarah Walker, the CIA Agent in "Chuck" but when she accepted the role of Kate Morgan, the demoted CIA Agent in "24: Live Another Day" she took her career to the next level of stardom and scrutiny. The character is one who is more than just a beautiful face who runs around shooting people. This character is dealing with some serious inner conflict that she has to convey to the audience while also demonstrating that she is a great CIA agent despite the fact she is in her current position because of a demotion.
When interviewed about the new role she admitted to enjoying it immensely and revealed that she the role helps keep her in shape as she is constantly running from place to place on the set and also instead of taking the 'Tube' to travel around London she walks around the city. Another aspect of the show that caught her attention was the fact that she now gets her hair cut every 3 weeks in the exact same style as it cannot change nor can her body.
Entertainment insiders so far have been impressed by how she has been able to handle this 'heavy' dramatic role as similar to Jack Bauer, she is impulsive and to get the job done she is willing to bend the rule and will take matters into her own hands. Her ability to reveal the different dimensions of her character such as the challenge of trusting others after missing the signs in her past marriage that led to her demotion is what has filmmakers now looking at her as an actress who could be a lead actress on the big screen.
Her performance in '24" Live Another Day" has been outstanding and the role has enhanced her considerable appeal to an even larger fan base and in the process made her an in-demand actress for filmmakers. Look out for Yvonne Strahovski because her performance as Kate Morgan has made her a commodity not just on the small screen but with the decision makers of the big screen.
