Sandra Oh on Leaving ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ at Season-End

Sandra Oh – well known for her character Dr. Christina Yang on the hit show "Grey’s Anatomy" -- stopped by to talk with Katie about the series and what she will do after she leaves at the end of the 10th season.

So why is Oh leaving Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital?

“I felt like all the avenues that a character that could possibly be explored,” she said, “I feel like we have done that.”

“Was that a tough decision to make?” Katie asked.

“Yes, it was. It took me a couple of years to come to that decision.”

Two years ago, Sandra started thinking about leaving "Grey’s Anatomy" when the show started renegotiating contracts.

“[I thought] If the show is going to come to an end, I need to start thinking about letting it go.”

But the hardest part will be saying goodbye to her friends and colleagues on the show.

“Will you miss all those people?” said Katie, “I imagine you’ve become kind of a family.”

“It makes my heart full and heavy at the same time," said Sandra. "[There are] so many long-term relationships that I have there. I will be really, really sad.”

The next chapter looks bright. Oh looks forward to the unknown and getting to work with different mediums such as film and theater.

While her career as Dr. Yang is coming to a close, she assures us that there is still a lot more work to be done at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

“There are still 24 more episodes to go,” she noted.
