Sandra Oh: I'm not coming back to Grey's Anatomy
Sandra Oh has "no plans" to return to Grey's Anatomy.
The 45-year-old actress sparked rumours earlier this year that she would be reprising her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on the ABC medical drama but she has now confirmed that she won't be returning any time soon.
She told ET Canada: "I've gotta tell you those rumours, I don't know who starts them but it really is tough. No, I have no plans to return to 'Grey's anytime soon."
Sandra revealed that she would be leaving the television series in 2013 and made her final appearance on the show in the series 10 finale, which aired in 2014, when her character moved to Zurich in order to work in a hospital there.
Speaking about her role, Sandra said: "Grey's Anatomy, it changed all of our lives. And it was an extremely stressful time. And in those times, it's very difficult to see what's happening in the present moment. It's only 10 years later when I get to say, 'Oh, I remember the first year was so magical in a way.' ...
"And then there was another section for the next few years, and now I feel like the past two years have been a section of time where it was like the end of work and the decision to leave. It's like leaving a relationship in a really healthy way. It's like, 'OK, I'm not growing in this relationship anymore. I love you, I know you love me, and I have to move on.'"
