Canadian-born Sandra, 47, is probably best known for her roles on TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve, but we feel it’s our duty to remind you she’s also starred in big-screen movies like 2003’s Under the Tuscan Sun.
Her recent role as an MI5 spy in Killing Eve had viewers fawning over her acting skills, which had been pretty well honed in Grey’s Anatomy as well, if anyone remembers the scene where she cuts herself out of her wedding gown after Dr. Burke leaves her at the alter.
Audiences and big names alike took notice of Sandra Oh after she starred in the BBC thriller, and nominated her for Best Actress in a Drama, a category that had never before seen an Asian actress. The ultra-private star gave the world a glimpse at her family life that night when she brought her proud parents along to the awards.
While most viewed this as a thoughtful and adorable gesture, others wondered whether Sandra’s decision to bring mom and dad had anything to do with the fact that she didn’t have any romantic interests to ask as her date.
