Playing Serena Joy in the dystopian Hulu drama The Handmaid’s Tale, Yvonne Strahovski got the chance to go on quite an emotional journey with her character in the latest season. She started off season three having just given up her baby girl Nichole to June (played by Elizabeth Moss) to be taken out of Gilead and into Canada.
However, throughout the season she quickly realises that she is nothing without her baby and decides to campaign to get her back.
Seeing that her husband, Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) is quite a high ranking member of the Gilead government, the couple manages to mobilise international governments in order to get their child back.
The shift in Serena surprised many viewers, who truly believed for a moment she could betray her loyalty to Gilead for the good of her daughter.
And apparently, Serena’s actress was equally surprised by this change of heart.
