With the series of comebacks seen in season 17 of the medical drama, many were hoping to reunite with Christina. The actress has settled the rumors.
If any of us had any hope of ever seeing Meredith Gray and Christina Yang together again, it seems that we should be forgetting about that possibility. Sandra Oh, who gave life to the surgeon, has been blunt about a return to Grey’s Anatomy: “I left that series, my mother, seven years ago. In my mind, it is already gone. For many people, it is still alive. Although I understand it and I love her, I have turned the page. ”
The actress has spoken about it on the Los Angeles Times Asian Enough podcast and, although she assures that she has very good memories of the series and has no problem about it – “I love her and for this, I also really appreciate her because they keep asking me” -, it is a stage of his life that has been left behind.
Many hoped to see her again at Seattle Grace -now Gray Sloan- during Grey’s Anatomy season 17, since throughout this installment there have been long-awaited returns, such as Derek Shepherd ( Patrick Dempsey ), George O’Malley (TR Knight), or Lexie Gray ( Chyler Leigh ). The script seemed to hint at her return since Christina is one of those who collaborate with the hospital team to try to cure Meredith, who has suffered devastating effects from COVID.
Although Oh does not plan to return to his character, he has no problem imagining what role he would have played in the health crisis. Without a doubt, he would be “in the front line trying to solve the big problems. This pandemic has created even more obvious and problematic wealth gaps, so he would probably be attacking the problems of the system, not just on a day-to-day basis.”
In recent years Sandra Oh has worked on Killing Eve as the heroine Eve Polastri, a role that also has many fans. On the other hand, she has voiced Debbie Grayson in Invincible, Castaspella in She-Ra, and the Princesses of Power, and Virana in Raya and the Last Dragon. For the next few years, he is preparing The Chair, a Netflix comedy about the Literature department of a university.
The interpreter still has time to appear in the medical drama in case she changes her mind since Grey’s Anatomy has just been renewed for season 18. Ellen Pompeo will return to be the protagonist in a new batch of episodes that, however, could be the last. And who knows if maybe he’s kidding us and his cameo has already been recorded?
