10. The Honeymooners- One of her greatest comedic performances on the show. Her Texas accent was hilarious (she sounded like my sister's mother-in-law ya'lls). She also had some great romantic moments with Chuck.
9. The Cougars-Yvonne killed it as the awkward young Sarah and I love the scenes she had with Nicole Ritchie.
8. The Imported Hard Salami: Yvonne showed great screwball comedy skills in this one, with her hilarious acting in the trunk scene, followed by the "end of the world" kiss. Her awkward reaction and line delivery was awesome. Plus, there were two other amazing moments: Sarah fake crying after being "dumped" by Chuck and "seducing" Lester before scaring him off.
7. The Break Up- Yvonne gives another non-verbal acting masterclass here.
6. The Best Friend- Yvonne had two really moving scenes here: the scene where the car exploded and Sarah thought Chuck had died. The scene at the end gets me teary eyed every time. When she tells Chuck that she doesn't have any friends and Chuck said "yeah you do." And then the looks she gives him when they hold hands. Soooo good.
5. The Truth-One of Yvonne's greatest non-verbal acting scenes came at the end of the episode. I think that's when people realized she was a fantastic actress.
I have a FOUR Way tie for #1:
The Baby. In certain ways this may have been her best performance. She was soooooo good here. The rage she had at Ryker, the protectiveness she showed towards the baby, and the emotion she showed at having to abandon her mother (and again when they were reunited) was amazing.
Phase Three- Do we really need an explanation? She threw in everything, including the kitchen sink! Her breakdown at the end when she found Chuck was amazing.
Sarah/The Goodbye- A lot of people were upset that Sarah lost her memories, but this plot twist provided Yvonne with her most chilling and amazing performance we have ever seen. Yvonne did everything here: from losing her memories, but still pretending to remember Chuck and her friends (amazingly challenging task), her rage at Quinn for destroying her life, and her slowly regaining her memories back through the two episodes, she was brilliant. And the scene where she watches the video of herself talking about how she loves Chuck may have been her best acted scene of the series. Bravo!
Yvonne's performance on Chuck has to be one of the most criminally underrated performances ever. I wish the Emmy's would allow an actor to submit in the opposite genre of their series, because Yvonne could have contended there.
pna wrote:True, and you can absoutely say that about Chuck. About the writing being mediocre from times. Zachonne made it my all time favorite though despite that.
But I really agree and it's spot on with how she adds a depth to the character she's playing. Too bad that she didn't get a challenge in Killer Elite when playing with very big names, she did a wonderful job with what she got but it wasn't a lot of a challenge imo. So really excited for I, Frankenstein which will hopefully make us she a lot of her stunning talent and make her fan base bigger.
Wow, you really make spot on Natalie Portman, she's in my top4 actress league but yeah, I agree with her being in the Star Wars, it was farily sad to see her in that one imo.
But I got no idea about if any information is out about which other actor would be a name as Chuck and other actresses for the role of Sarah. Anyone know if there is?

When NBC’s nerd-spy comedy Chuck looked doomed in 2009, fans embraced commercialism to keep the show afloat. Rather than launch a letter-writing campaign at the end of the second season, die-hard viewers appealed to a higher power: one of the show’s advertisers. Under operation Finale & Footlong, Chuck’s “nerd herd” flooded Subway shops to buy sandwiches. Even the show’s star Zachary Levi got into the action, leading 600 fans to a shop in Birmingham, England.
Amazingly, the ploy worked. Subway liked the business so much that it struck a deal with NBC to sponsor Chuck’s third season, complete with increased product placement. Did fans love seeing the show saturated with sandwiches? Maybe not, but watching Chuck down a foot-long was better than not watching Chuck at all.
