Yvonne Strahovski on Prepping for Her Role on ‘Dexter’

dexter-yvonne-strahovskiLet’s be clear about one thing—Yvonne Strahovski has learned a thing or two about how to get away with murder after playing a serial killer (and a girlfriend to one) on Showtime’s .

“I think poison is a pretty good option.  Either that, or a lethal injection,” Strahovski joked (we hope) in an interview with Vulture.

Before starting her role as Hannah McKay, the Aussie (formerly of Chuck ) did some to get in the mindset of a murderer.  “Aside from the entire six seasons of Dexter, I watched a couple of movies—Natural Born Killers, Monster,” Strahovski said.  “They’re all very different, and I took elements from each, like the heart that put into Aileen Wuornos.”

“Watching Dexter back-to-back, like six or seven back-to-back at a time, I would end up having weird dreams about serial killers.  It really infiltrated my brain.  And then I got to the set, and I had a hard time remembering the actors’ real names!  I wanted to call them by their names.  I don’t know if they noticed.”

Even if they did, they probably shouldn’t do anything to make Strahovski mad.

The season finale of Dexter airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
