In April, Strahovski revealed that playing Serena Joy on the hit Hulu series delayed plans of becoming a mom in real life.
“[The role] hasn’t put me off at all, it’s definitely something I want for my future,” she told Stellar magazine about her Handmaid’s Tale character, who is unable to conceive herself.
“[Serena Joy] has made me wary of starting that process. I just always imagine if I have a child at work – screaming at people or throwing things around – how on earth will that affect something growing inside of me?” she added.
