Yvonne Strahovski talks 'I, Frankenstein': 3 highlights (Video)
TV fans know Yvonne Strahovski from her roles in shows like "Chuck" and "Dexter." The actress recently sat down with OTRC.com to talk about her role in the new film "I, Frankenstein."
The film, which hit theaters on Jan. 24, follows the story of Frankenstein's monster (played by Aaron Eckhart), who is called Adam in the movie. It is set in the modern era and Adam is caught in the middle of a battle over the fate of humanity.
Check out three highlights from our interview with Strahovski below and watch a video of the interview above.
1. Strahovski plays "kind of a modern day Victor Frankenstein"
The 31-year-old actress explained that her character, Dr. Terra Wade, is an electrophysiologist.
"I guess she's loosely, kind of a modern day Victor Frankenstein, who created the creature back in the novel," she said. "She's a girl with a very strong belief system and she doesn't believe in gargoyles and demons and Frankenstein being real."
Strahovski later added, "Her journey is one where her world gets thrown upside down and she has to deal with that."
2. Terra initially refers to Adam as "It."
"She's very scientific and very analytical and based on the facts that are in front of her, he's not the greatest person or being, rather," Strahovski said. "He's scary. He's a monster. He's not real and to her, it's an object. She refers to Adam as 'It.'
"I mean, he's an 'It' with a heart, you know," the actress later added. "That's the heart of the story so, he does become a 'He' in her eyes."
3. Aaron Eckhart mostly kept to himself on the set of the film to get into character.
"He kept to himself a lot in this movie," Strahovski said of Eckhart. "I think maybe that was part of his process playing this character, you know, to develop someone who had been rejected by all forms of life and had lived all these 200 years not really being part of a community."
