Yvonne Strahovski of NBC’s Chuck has an ideal first date in mind. And though it might be impossible for you to ever get a date with her (especially since she has a boyfriend) it’s always good to be prepared like the Boy/Girl Scout you try to forget your parents forced you to be that one year in second grade… Um, back to Yvonne!

During a behind the scenes video for Maxim photoshoot (at a porn ranch!), Strahovski talked about her ideal guy. “For a guy to impress me on a first date I’d say he’d have to take me to a scrumptious fine dining restaurant, preferably French or Italian – you know with the cheese and the red wine and the whole bit. I love it all. And then, we’d probably go dancing.” Any kind of dancing? “I love dancing. I love a guy who can dance. Every guy should learn how to dance. If you don’t know how to dance, learn how to dance. That is my advice.” And we all know that on Chuck she gets to dance a lot. (And leading man Zachary Levi dances plenty, as well.)

For Chuck season 5, Strahovski will be sporting a new haircut that is blonde, short, and slightly wavy. It’s anyone’s guess whether her hair was too damaged from filming Killer Elite to keep it both long and blonde, or if she just wanted a change. Either way, she’ll be the same old Sarah Walker no matter what. That is – Sarah Walker Bartowski. The newlywed to Zachary Levi’s Chuck only has a half season on screen before the Chuck series finale airs and millions of loyal nerds begin weeping. Viva la Buymore!

Strahovski has a new movie coming out which is called Killer Elite. The movie costars Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro (this is definitely not a shabby role for Strahovski!), and features the lovely actress with light brown hair.

What is Killer Elite About?

When his mentor (Robert De Niro) is taken captive, a retired member of Britain’s Elite Special Air Service (Jason Statham) is forced into action. His mission: kill three assassins dispatched by their cunning leader (Clive Owen)

Notes: Yvonne Strahovski plays a country girl named Anne in the movie, gets to wear comfortable boots, and speaks with her natural Australian accent.

Here are some Yvonne Strahovski pictures of her in Maxim with her newer, short hair. At first I was inappropriately upset about her haircut, but now I think it’s kinda cool. She can be very Marilyn Monroe this way. Although, I serioulsy doubt Monroe could kick as much ass as Strahovski can.

She’s a rebel without a cause! (But she is actually very involved with animal charities!)
