Sandra Oh Equates Finding the Right Job to "Falling in Love" | Close Up With THR

  • Published on May 25, 2018
  • Sandra Oh ('Killing Eve') joins Close Up with The Hollywood Reporter for this season's Drama Actress Roundtable. She discusses using her "economic power" from 'Grey's Anatomy' to allow her to "say no" and wait for the right projects. "I have a little bit more awareness, a little more consciousness: I want this out of a relationship, and I'm just going to wait till they show up, because I feel like they'll show up," Oh told THR.

    I remember saw sandra oh fist time as additional character since mr bean go to america (i forgot the real title). And she never aged ever since. When she said she had to take any crappy job for eat it eas true. Many of her movies wherr she had short time screening. But boy her scene always remembered by the audiance

    It's nice to see Sandra Oh coming into her own. I was
    so glad she won at the Golden Globes.

    I think Sandra Oh has a very strong screen presence. She is not a beautiful woman in a conventional sense of the word, but has a very unique beauty which verges on an intellectual dimension. Not sure whether she is actually an intellectual person, but certainly exudes that air. In other words, she seems educated, smart, thoughtful and strong, all of which give her that unique beauty.

    What a humble, honest and thoughtful approach to both acting as well as career wise. To take every opportunity to grow in your job and as a human being while staying true to yourself. I feel like these are life lessons applicable to many situations really. It's such a pleasure to hear her speak as well. She comes across as that one person in a group of new people where you immediately feel like you could have long and interesting conversations with them :) Nice vid!

    I love moments like the "mmmm" -- where you can see they all really identify with what the speaker is saying. I love seeing that shared connection of experience. It pulls you in too, a little.

    I love Sandra but I'm astounded Jodie Comer has been ignored.

      Right? I mean Sandra Oh is brilliant and I'm thrilled at all the attention she's getting, but it does seem like the world is still sleeping on Jodie Comer. She's such an astounding actress and embodied Villanelle so perfectly, she really deserves so much more credit.

    The rest of the table seem so moved by Sandra especially when she briefly explains how much training she still does even until this day. The work ethic is something that I remember the Grey’s Anatomy cast commending Sandra for...

    Unfortunately SHE LOOKS LIKE A HUMAN PENIS !!!!
    1 day, a close friend of mines made a joke, "Just watch...1 day you'll marry her". I took that joke, as huge insult. Took me weeks to recover !!!

  • Anderson C

    I think Sandra looks better today having aged. having put on some weight. Yes, it should be about the acting......but looks always matters. Especially for some one in entertainment. In the public eye. Because not only do we want to see good acting but someone we like to look at for 30 minutes or on the big screen for 2 hours. Or someone we can stomach.
    Angela Bassett ...always beautiful IMHO. Good actor.

    Love Sandra, but this kind of "round-table" circlejerk debate where one person speaks and others have little to no say except always mindlessly nodding is beyond me. And even Sandra sometimes feels pressured if "she'll say the right thing", It's dishonest and doesn't do justice to anyone trying to share their experience.

    Why dlid she get an eye surgery? She looks so weird and "wicked" whereas before she had her natural and unique beauty with soft look. Really, really a bad decision. Now, she lost the "aura" that she had before with her natural beauty. She looks like a wicked Asian mom.
