Yvonne Strahovski To Star In Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” Series

Yvonne has landed a starring role in Hulu’s upcoming series “The Handmaid’s Tale”. This sounds like a pretty interesting show and role for Yvonne. I can’t wait!

Yvonne Strahovski is set as a lead opposite Joseph Fiennes and Elisabeth Moss in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the upcoming straight-to-series drama based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel.

Strahovski will play Serena Joy, wife of Commander Waterford (Fiennes) and the head of the household staff. As an influential public figure, she fought for traditional values and the establishment of Gilead.

The series tells the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

Strahovski next will be seen in Marc Forster’s All I See Is You, opposite Jason Clarke and Blake Lively. She is currently filming Screen Gems’ suspense thriller He’s Out There. She is repped in the U.S. by Paradigm and McKeon/Myones Entertainment and by Sue Barnett & Associates in Australia.

The Handmaid’s Tale comes to Hulu from MGM Television. The series is created, executive produced and written by Bruce Miller, with Warren Littlefield, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, and Ilene Chaiken serving as executive producers. Atwood is a consulting producer for the series. Reed Morano is set to direct the first three episodes.

The 10-episode series is scheduled to go into production in Toronto this fall, with premiere slated for 2017.

Yvonne Predicts the Fate of Her Characters In ‘Dexter’ and ‘Chuck’

As all cinephiles know, every film noir needs a femme fatale. Like Double Indemnity has Barbara Stanwyck’s Phyllis Dietrichson, the new thriller Manhattan Night has Caroline Crowley—portrayed by actress Yvonne Strahovski.

Manhattan Night—a film that put its own unique modern spin on the classic genre—follows a jaded tabloid journalist Porter Wren (Adrien Brody) struggling to make a living off his print articles in the digital age. But after meeting the enigmatic Caroline, he finds himself enwrapped in her life, simultaneously bedding and helping her solve the mystery of her late husband Simon Crowley’s (Campbell Scott) death.

However, Porter ends up not only putting his life, but that of his wife, Lisa (Jennifer Beals) and kids, in jeopardy for the charming stranger. However, Caroline isn’t your textbook femme fatale because there’s more to her story than meets the eye—and it’s quite a twisted story to say the least.

This isn’t the first time Yvonne Strahovski has played a seductive woman with a complex history. The actress is also known for playing Hannah McKay on Dexter and Sarah Walker on Chuck—both badass ladies with mysterious pasts.

WhoSay talked to the 33-year-old actress about her Manhattan Night role, news consumption in the 21st century, her iconic characters’ possible fates, and more. Check out our exclusive interview below.

WhoSay: Manhattan Night talks a lot about how hardcopy newspapers are being replaced by videos and viral content? Do you personally still read print stories?

Strahovski: I was never really into newspaper reading to begin with. Social media is a system where you follow [what] you’re interested in. Then I read all of the articles off of my phone, basically. But I am a fan of reading books. I can’t seem to get through books online or on any kind of device. I grew up on reading books, holding them in my hand, [and] the smell of the paper.
