She’s Christina Yang on ABC’s hit show Grey’s Anatomy, but in reality her name is Sandra Oh. A Canadian born Korean ballerina turned actress who has won several awards for her performances in movies and television shows, Oh has earned a Cable Ace award and a Screen Actors Guild Award, among many other accolades.
The actress has had roles in TV shows and movies like the Princess Diaries (as Vice Principal Gupta), Judging Amy, Arli$$, and the Proud Family, but her 2003 performance in Under the Tuscan Sun made her stand out to the U.S. audience. The next year, she appeared in Sideways and in 2005 she landed her series regular role on Grey’s.
Oh was married to Sideways filmmaker Alexander Payne for two years, but they finalized their divorce in 2007 after a mutual split.
