Turns in two continental features – Middle of Nowhere and The Plex – had Hollywood beckoning, and in 2006, Yvonne Strzechowski officially moved to Los Angeles and signed for a plum role in her first Tinseltown series: the NBC sci-fi comedy Chuck (2007), about Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi), a computer nerd turned highly unlikely teenage spy.
