Grey’s Anatomy is one of the longest running shows on television. After having spent many years in the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital from the show, actress Sandra Oh reveals that there’s no chance of her coming back to the show.
While appearing in the Asian Enough podcast by the The LA Times, Oh said the possibility of her ever coming back to the show is completely nil. The episode was posted on Tuesday, May 11, where she stated:
No. I love it, though, and this is also why I really appreciate the show … that I still get asked this.
While the actress’ character on the show, Cristina Yang, has had an amazing trajectory on the show, and has a deep and strong place in the legacy of Grey’s Anatomy, Oh wants to leave it unchanged.
It’s very rare, I would say, to be able to see in such a way the impact of a character. In some ways, you do your work as a bubble and you let it go. I left that show, my God, seven years ago almost. So in my mind, it’s gone. But for a lot of people, it’s still very much alive. And while I understand and I love it, I have moved on.
Oh’s run on the show lasted for 9 years, from 2005 to 2014. The actress has been focusing on other projects such as the critically acclaimed show Killing Eve, as well as being an ardent supporter and activist for the representation of Asian Americans in the U.S.[Via]
