Yvonne vs. The Final Scene. [x]

“Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) sends Scrabble pieces flying as she confronts her husband (Joseph Fiennes) for his illicit activities with their handmaid Offred (Elisabeth Moss), hurling the tiles as hard as the insults. It’s their final scene together, and over in Serena’s sitting room set, the actors’ chairs sit side by side — Strahovski’s is draped with a knitted scarf, a ukulele (her guitar already had been shipped back home to Australia) and a giant bag of pretzels (a parting gift from craft services).”

Yvonne vs. THAT Scarf.

Extract from Yahoo Style article.

She filmed the series during her first Canadian winter and like Serena Joy, she learned how to knit, crafting a scarf that she gave to the showrunner as a wrap gift. Picking up her character’s hobby helped her connect with Serena Joy, in a way.  “Because it’s so unrelatable to me, I’ve had a hard time trying to understand her,” says Strahovski. “What made her heart hurt and what made her heart happy?”

The miniseries explores her backstory in greater detail then the book, showing her earlier life in flashback scenes, when she had a career as a champion of traditional values and a platform, and hot, passionate sex with her husband (Joseph Fiennes). She’s a former author who, as all women, was then forbidden to read and write.
