Awesome Characters - Sarah Walker

" I'm just a needy love-crazed girl on a husband hunt - who's trained in over 200 ways to kill you."

There are characters we fall in love with. The perfect mix of actor and writer that breathes magic onto the screen or inside the television.

She was chosen by the CIA to protect him, but despite her best attempts she couldn't help falling in love.

Agent Sarah Walker (not her real name) has lived a life of aliases since her childhood. After her con man of a father (Gary Cole) was put away Sarah went to work for the United States Government.

Here's what we do know:

Her real first name is Sam and her real middle name is Lisa, but, like so much of Sarah's past, her real last name remains a mystery.

She served on the C.A.T. (Clandestine Attack Team) Squad alongside her volatile friend Carina (Mini Andén). As Casey has noted, she has a knack for falling for people she works with including Bryce Larkin (Matthew Bomer) and then Chuck (Zachary Levi).

She's an expert at hand-to-hand combat, guns, throwing knives, and the use of various other deadly weapons as well. She looks great in almost anything, hates discussing her past, and she cooks a mean-looking weinerschnitzel.

Sarah is played by the beautiful and talented Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski. We never had to wonder why Chuck immeaditely fell for Sarah the first moment he laid eyes on her because we did as well. As Chuck's brother-in-law would say, she's awesome.
