Sandra Oh, one of the original cast members on ABC’s long running medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, is hanging up her scrubs once season ten wraps later this season.
Oh informed her co-stars about her upcoming exit during Tuesday’s table read for the show’s 200th episode and told The Hollywood Reporter in an exclusive interview that the decision “doesn’t feel real” yet.
The 42-year-old actress has played Dr. Cristina Yang since the show’s inception.
She told THR “Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go. It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well. [Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the Grey’s writers to think of why she’s going to go.”
