Yvonne Strahovski Bio (Age)
Yvonne Strahovski was born on 30 July 1989 as Yvonne Jaqueline Strzechowski. She had changed her surname from Strzechowski to the phonetic pronunciation of Strahovski when she moved to America. Strahovski grew up in Werrington Downs, Sydney, New South Wales, where she was born to Polish immigrant Piotr Strzechowski, an electronics engineer, and Bozena, a laboratory technician. Strahovski speaks fluent Polish.
Yvonne showed a passion for acting as a young schoolgirl, and at the age of 12, she started taking acting lessons. Yvonne attended high school at Santa Sabina College and once played the role of Viola in a school production of Twelfth Night. Despite her commitment to acting, Yvonne remained an outstanding academic student; she was an A student.
After high school, she attended the University of Western Sydney’s Theatre Nepean, where she graduated in 2003. She then formed a theater company and started her professional acting career in Australia.
Yvonne Strahovski made her acting debut in a small role in the television series Double the Fist. She then played the recurring role of Freya Lewis in Headland. These two roles were enough to celebrate her debut on the big screen, which she gave in the British-Australian psychodrama “Gone” in 2007. Her portrayal of the role of Sandra twisted the minds of Hollywood producers, and it wasn’t long before she made it to Hollywood.
Strahovski found out about the casting call for NBC’s Chuck and sent a video of her auditioning for several roles. About a week later, the producers called her and offered her the role of Sarah Walker, which helped her become very popular. Strahovski received three awards for her role in the show, which lasted five seasons between 2007 and 2012, including a Teen Choice Award as Teen Choice TV actress.
After her Hollywood break, Strahovski’s parents moved to the United States to be close to her. Most of her family members still live in Poland. Yvonne made her Broadway debut in a revival of Clifford Odets’ Golden Boy in December 2012 and her role earned her a Theatre World Award.
Since 2009, Strahovski has embodied the character of Miranda Lawson in the EA Sports game franchise Mass Effect.
Is She Married, Who Is Her Husband?
Yvonne Strahovski is different from most Hollywood actresses because she leads a very private life. In recent years, however, she has become increasingly noisy in her love life. She is married to the actor and producer Tim Loden. The news of Strahovski’s marriage came as a shock to fans, as many thought that she and Loden, who was her long-time lover, were no longer together.
Strahovski and Loden’s relationship dates back to 2009 when their relationship is said to have started. The following year, 2010, Loden had his first major breakthrough thanks to a performance in the hit series of his wife Chuck. About two years after the news of their relationship came out, Strahovski and her admirer became very quiet; they disappeared completely from the limelight, and paparazzi cameras were not even spoiled with their occasional outings.
When Strahovski appeared with loden in hand at the Emmy 2017, the fans could no longer be shocked when rumors circulated that they had split up. An even bigger shock was when she revealed that she and Tim Loden had signed the covenant for life last summer.
Tim Loden began his acting career in 2007, and apart from his appearance with Chuck, he is best known for his recurring role as Vincent in Bloodlines. He had a role in the series “Vantastic” and is working on building his filmography.
As many of her fans already know, Yvonne Strahovski is a tall lady; she is 1.76 m tall. Compared to her husband Tim Loden, the couple is a pretty perfect match. Loden towers above his superstar wife with 6 feet 2 inches just a few inches.
