Subscribe To How Sandra Oh Feels About Rumors Saying She's Returning To Grey's Anatomy Updates
For ten seasons, Sandra Oh's Cristina Yang was one of the most watchable characters in primetime, bringing lots of spunky bravado to the hospital hallways. Four years after her Grey's exit, Oh is set to take on another big leading role for the excellent-looking BBC/BBC America thriller Killing Eve. No amount of new roles will likely stop rumors that Oh will return to Grey's anatomy at some point in the future, however, but the actress doesn't get upset about such false reports, as they imply how much people still love Cristina. In Oh's words:
It's perhaps telling that Sandra Oh used the concept of relationships to speak about Grey's Anatomy rumors, considering that series saw roughly a billion of them during her decade there. (Her Killing Eve character also has a mighty interesting relationship with Jodie Comer's Villanelle, though it's far less positive than the Grey's fandom situation.) In any case, at least Cristina's biggest adorers can take comfort in knowing she has the fondest appreciation for their consistent and lasting feelings about the character.
But for all that she graciously accepts her fans' adoration for Cristina, Sandra Oh isn't exactly in the position to drop everything and dive back into Grey's Anatomy scrubs, even if she wholeheartedly wanted to. Interestingly, she spoke of focusing on her new project and being committed to Killing Eve, as opposed to speaking negatively of heading back to her old stomping grounds.
Sandra Oh is at least keeping the door open on possible returning to Grey's Anatomy, which is likely only going to fuel further rumors, keeping the Cristina-loving cycle alive. And then one day, in Season 18, maybe she'll pop up when Cristina calls Meredith via Skype or something.
Sandra Oh's Killing Eve will debut on BBC America on Sunday, April 8, at 8 p.m. ET. While Grey's Anatomy airs at its usual Thursday night slot on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET. To see what other new and returning shows are on the way, head to our midseason premiere schedule.
