Yvonne-Strahovski-I-Frankenstein-interview

One day she’s taking out her enemies using rat poison in Dexter and the next, she’s trying to re-animate a rat Frankenstein-style in I, Frankenstein.  In the Stuart Beattie-directed film, Yvonne Strahovski steps in as Terra, an electrophysiologist employed by Bill Nighy’s Wessex to figure out a way to bring the dead back to life. She manages to make some progress with the aforementioned rat, but it isn’t until Victor Frankenstein’s monster, Adam (Aaron Eckhart), comes back to town that Terra gets closer than ever to cracking the code of re-animation. However, that doesn’t mean the code is necessarily safe to share. Hit the jump for more from the I, Frankenstein star.

At the recent New York City press day, Strahovski sat down with us to discuss going from not being very “scientifically minded” to playing a believable electrophysiologist, her first go-around on a CGI-heavy set, how she felt about the way Dexter went out and more. Catch it all for yourself in the video interview after the jump.

Yvonne Strahovski:

  • On portraying an electrophysiologist.
  • Using practical props during her rat re-animation scene.
  • Her experience working on her first big, CGI project.
  • When imagination takes the place of physical props and effects on set.
  • Her thoughts on the series finale of Dexter.

    I love this woman.

    She’s part of what ruined Dexter.

      It wasn’t her. She didn’t play the part wrong, It was a poorly written character and story arc. It’s not like a different actress in the role would have saved the finale seasons.

        I agree, I loved her on “Chuck” but for the producers/writers of Dexter to continue with that character even though there wasn’t a shade of chemistry between them was horrible and a huge contribution to how awful that show became and ended.
