Strahovski, who co-stars on NBC's Chuck, says she can relate to the physicality of her character. "I've always been a bit of a tomboy, so I think all of the action and stunts have always been a part of me. I love doing that stuff, and now my character has sort of evolved from being very comfortable in the spy world but not very comfortable with being a normal person with family and a boyfriend and stuff. She's evolved into a more natural human being and more easygoing in social situations. It's nice to be bringing that into it … to be more normal on the show but still being the spy."

Jack Bauer will have some company in London in Fox's upcoming 24: Live Another Day revival.

Dexter and Chuck alum Yvonne Strahovski has boarded the miniseries starring Kiefer Suthlerland, Fox announced Monday.

24: Live Another Day will film in London and pick up with Bauer several years after the events in the final season of 24. Strahovski, who is fresh off a two-season arc on the final run of Showtime's Dexter, will portray Kate Morgan, a brilliant but impulsive CIA field operative tasked with hunting down the fugitive Bauer.

Strahovski is repped by Paradigm and McKeon-Myones.

A premiere date for Fox's 24: Live Another Day will be announced soon.
