Yvonne Strahovski scooped Emmy, Golden Globe and Critics' Circle nominations for her star turn as the villainous Serena Joy in The Handmaid's Tale, which famously tackles the role of patriarchy and religion in suppressing women's rights.
And the Sydney-born actor is happy to comment on the increasing similarities between the fictional dystopia and our current reality: "There are things happening now that directly reflect the themes of the show. It's a scary world we're living in," she says.
Of the current debate raging in the US over women's reproductive rights, she says, "No one and no law has the right to make a decision on behalf of the woman."
But parenthood isn't all roses: the LA-based actor says, "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't terrified just like every other parent is of [my child] growing up in a country where gun culture is rampant and we have mass shootings every day. Thinking about school, where children are being affected, it's a very scary position for a parent to be in."
That's not her only fear for the future: speaking to the theme of ELLE's August issue, climate change, Yvonne says, "I think we're at a critical point where if we don't make some hard decisions and if the people in power don't make a plan to move forward, we're in danger. We can do so much better."

I wouldn’t kick her out of bed, but I would probably stuff a sock in her mouth while we copulated.
She’s been coached to say all the right stuff to keep her career on an upward trajectory.
Witches be Bitches and yes, witches eat children.
There are multiple ‘mass shootings’ every day but they have nothing to do with traditional American gun culture...
waiting to see if Adam Baldwin tweets to her. He commented about Joss Whedon.
What a shame. Shes a true beauty and plays a great tough girl character. All phony.
Why does anyone listen to people who play pretend for a living?
Yes, she is beautiful. Her character in Chuck was one of my favorites.
So, a woman is immune from all laws and social conventions? She may murder, injure, steal, lie, disobey traffic laws and anything else she wants, merely due to possession of a vagina?
Smith and Wesson 5906, who is the lady holding it?
I take it that you’re pro-choice, Yvonne. I guess your child got lucky!
How many of your child’s siblings didn’t dodge that bullet?
Yeah I think that’s likely. A lot of commenters on this video through she was uncomfortable discussing politics in this interview (from 2017). But she has discussed politics in several interviews since.
"But on the other hand I'd be perfectly happy of [my child] growing up in a country where gay culture is rampant and we have addicts shooting up every day. Thinking about school, where children are being affected, it's a welcome introduction to real life."
That’s Yvonne when she was on the show Chuck. Adam Baldwin had one of the lead roles on the show.
She’s got her left eye open and holding the gun in her right hand, she’s not looking down the sights at all.
Criminally stupid infanticidal bimbo.
Moonbat idiot... Unless she's talking about the muslim world.
