Is Sandra Oh Single? Here's What We Know About The Star's Love Life
Between her co-hosting gig and a nomination for her work in Killing Eve, Sandra Oh is the woman of the hour at this year's Golden Globe Awards. The former Grey's Anatomy star works alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Andy Samberg onstage on Jan. 6, but what with her being the spellbinding actress we've been sleeping on for years, you might be on the hunt for more info about Oh. What has she been doing since Grey's Anatomy? Is Sandra Oh single? We've narrowed down what a true Sandra Oh fan should know before her time as a Golden Globes host is up.
Although many of us were first introduced to Oh via her turn as a quotable vice principal in The Princess Diaries, her role as the brilliant Cristina Yang in Grey's Anatomy solidified her as a TV favorite. Following her departure from the ABC medical drama in 2014, Oh seemingly laid low in Hollywood before BBC America's Killing Eve came along. Now with at least one more season of the thriller in store, Oh is due back on our screens when Season 2 of Killing Eve premieres on April 7. Although she keeps her personal life fairly private, Oh staying low-key and delivering exceptional onscreen work is just another reason why we love her. Good luck to her and Samberg as they helm the Golden Globes!
So, here's the rundown on Oh:
1She's Rumored To Be Dating A Musician
Her official relationship status is a mystery, but the internet has recently linked Oh with musician Andrew Featherston. She didn't comment on the rumored relationship in an interview with U.K. publication The Times, but said she was "very happy." While it's tricky to track down clips of Featherston's music (this experimental piece on YouTube appears to be his doing), you can easily find paparazzi shots of him with Oh. We probably shouldn't count on seeing the pair on the Golden Globes red carpet together, but if the gossip is true, I'm sure Featherston will be supporting Oh's hosting stint from afar.
3She & Her 'Grey's Anatomy' Co-Star Kate Walsh Play A Couple In 'Under The Tuscan Sun'
No, this isn't a Grey's Anatomy dream sequence where Cristina and Addison end up together. 2003's Under the Tuscan Sun is travel porn at its finest, but the reason that Diane Lane goes to Italy in the first place is because of Oh and Walsh's characters. Oh's Patti is expecting her first child with Grace, who Walsh plays, preventing them from taking a planned trip to Tuscany. Patti convinces her heartsick best friend Frances (Lane) to go on the vacation instead, prompting the main character to revitalize her life. Although it foreshadowed Oh and Walsh's future as TV co-stars, Under the Tuscan Sun also hinted that had Cristina and Addison's romantic paths ever unexpectedly crossed, it probably wouldn't have ended well.
4Her Parents Were Her Dates At The 2018 Emmy Awards
As the first Asian person nominated for an Emmy Award for lead actress in a drama series, Oh brought her parents to the September 2018 ceremony. The presence of Mrs. and Mr. Oh, as they were introduced in a red carpet interview with Variety, clearly delighted Oh. Fingers crossed that we spot the adorable duo in the audience at the Globes!
5She Has Mixed Feelings About Returning To 'Grey's Anatomy'
Just in case you want her ex Owen's storyline to become even more complicated, Oh has acknowledged that the nature of Cristina's exit definitely allows for the character to return someday, but she's wary about doing so. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly before the debut of Killing Eve, she said, "I'm not sure... The idea of stepping back into the Cristina shoes, it doesn’t feel right to me right now. But honestly, who knows how long Grey’s is gonna go?"
Given the success Oh has met through Killing Eve, I definitely don't mind her Grey's Anatomy ambiguity. Good look to her this weekend!
The 76th Golden Globe Awards air on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
