Get to know who is Sandra Oh, her family life, net worth and major works that she’s been in.
Who is Sandra Oh?
Sandra, 50, was born on July 20, 1971, and is a Canadian actress.
Born to Korean immigrant parents, she was one of three children.
She rejected a four-year journalism scholarship at the Carleton University to study drama at the National Theatre School of Canada.
Sandra promised her parents that she would try her hand at acting for a few years and if it all failed she would return to university.

Sandra dated filmmaker Alexander Payne for five years before making it official.
The pair tied the knot on January 1, 2003.
However, following their separation in 2005, Sandra and Alexander officially divorced in late 2006.
The actress has now been dating Lev Rukhin since 2016.
In an interview with The Gentlewoman, Oh spoke about how she chose not to have children.
She said, “I feel like there’s some sort of fog for women that they’re going to be able to have kids forever.
“It was like, ‘Do you want to be a single mom while you’re working on the show?’
“Because I was still working on Grey’s. Do you want to have that life?”
What’s Sandra’s net worth?
Sandra is worth $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
That equates to around £19.6 million.
Her wealth is down to the countless successful movies and television series she’s been in.
Most notable of these are Grey’s Anatomy, Arli$$, Blindness, and Killing Eve.
What else has Sandra Oh been in?
Sandra is best known for her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy.
Her role on the medical drama won her a Golden Globe Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and five Emmy nominations.
However, that’s not all as her credits as an actress are countless.
She also starred in the BBC America drama Killing Eve as the MI5 agent Eve Polastri.
Sandra received an Emmy 2018 nomination within the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for her work in Killing Eve and is up for a Golden Globe.
Her movie credits include The Princess Diaries (2001), Blindness (2008) and Rabbit Hole (2010).
