Sandra Oh on a Possible Grey's Comeback: 'Today My Answer Is No'

Sandra Oh Grey's Anatomy Season 15

When (or perhaps if?) Grey’s Anatomy closes its doors for good, Cristina Yang will not be among the familiar faces popping back in for a series-ending encore. In a forthcoming TVLine Podcast Q&A, Sandra Oh — whose work in BBC America’s breakout thriller Killing Eve is attracting deafening Emmy buzz — admits she’s ready to put Yang behind her.

“I get [the Grey’s] question regularly, and I answer it really based on what I’m feeling that day — and today [my answer] is no,” the actress shares, before explaining that her desire to keep Grey’s in her rearview mirror is tied to the enormous affection she has for her current gig. “I love Eve. I really love her.

“I also love Cristina Yang,” Oh is quick to add. “I’m constantly stunned at the response I still get from [Grey’s fans], you know? It’s so fantastic, and it pleases me. It gives me a tremendous amount of satisfaction that, you know, you did work that actually continues going on past the time that you’ve left it… It’s really phenomenal. And the only way that I think I can continue doing good work is just staying true to my own compass. And that compass is pointing north.”

Oh was much more amenable to the idea of a Yang encore on the eve of her Grey’s exit in 2013, telling TVLine at the time, “Eventually [Grey’s] will have to come to a close, and I would love to come back [for the series finale].”
