Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Outside of Grey's Anatomy, Sandra has kissed two Grey's Anatomy stars: Kate Walsh and Brooke Smith.
  • In a Blooper with Katherine Heigl, Sandra Oh almost kissed her. Either it was a joke or they really kissed.
  • Though she originally auditioned for the part of Miranda Bailey, Sandra later mentioned that she was glad that the role was given to Chandra Wilson.
  • Sandra does not like watching herself, so she never really watched the show when she was on it. 
  • Despite leaving after the tenth season, she added she would like to come back for the series finale.
  • When she left the show, she wanted to take her scrubs, her stethoscope, her lab coat, Cristina's wedding dress from her wedding to Burke, and the Stanford pants. However, she was told she could only take one item.
  • According to Kevin McKidd, Sandra lives about 10 minutes from the Prospect Studios where they film the show.
  • She and Kevin remain good friends and regularly meet up.

    • I believe she officially lives in Canada but my guess is that she probably resides in LA during the show's production. I'm not sure though.
    • Her Twitter bio calls her a Los Angeleno, so I assume she lives in LA.
