Sandra Oh – Blue Before Grey’s

But for those who don’t follow Sandra’s character, Dr. Christina Yang, on the Emmy Award-winning show, Grey’s Anatomy; just last night she said her final farewell to Grey Sloan Memorial after 10 seasons.

Her portrayal of Dr. Yang on the show since its debut in 2005, has earned her a Golden Globe and two Screen Actor’s Guild awards and the above scenes sure aren’t from Grey’s Anatomy. They’re from the 2000 film, Dancing at the Blue Iguana, in which Sandra played Jasmine, a poetry-writing stripper.
