Sandra Oh is set to leave her hit series Grey’s Anatomy after the upcoming tenth season, she tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go,” the 42-year-old actress said. “It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well. [Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the Grey’s writers to think of why she’s going to go.”
Sandra says she told her co-stars about her plan to leave the show during their table read for the 200th episode today.
“I seriously think I need that much support over processing it over this next year for me to be able to leave fully and leave in a way that I feel like Cristina deserves,” Sandra said. “For the first time, at least for my character, you actually have an endpoint, which in series television you never or very rarely have.”
