Sandra Oh is Actress of the Week

by at . Comments

The terrificly talented Sandra Oh was chosen by AskMen.com, the popular online men's journal boasting 5 million monthly readers, as its Actress of the Week. The Canadian actress is profiled on the website looking terrific and being recognized for her craft. Here's what AskMen.com has to say:

Sexy Sandra
WHY WE LIKE HER:
Sandra Oh's obvious talent is matched by her penchant for choosing complicated roles, and it's certainly easy enough to forget that Cristina Yang -- her Grey's Anatomy alter ego -- is merely one of the hundreds of parts she has tackled over the years.

WHY SHE'S FAMOUS:
Although she stepped into the spotlight thanks to her gig on Grey's Anatomy, Sandra Oh is actually a veteran of the entertainment industry having appeared in over 45 movies and television shows since the late 1980s.

Unlike some of her co-stars on Grey's Anatomy, Sandra has been working within the entertainment industry long enough to ensure that this sudden burst of fame has little chance of going to her head. The actress has, slowly but surely, built an impressive filmography, effectively ensuring that she'll never be thought of as a flash in the pan.

IN HER OWN WORDS:
"In this line of work, you can't expect that if you get something -- some kind of recognition for your work -- that you'll work again. That's the insanity of being an actor; who knows when you're going to work again?"

I agree, purplemerder, I can't imagine anyone else in the role of Cristina. I loved Sandra Oh in Sideways. She can play either humor or drama with equal skill. Both Sandra and Isaiah Washington are veterans of 20 years in the business with many movies under their belt. This must be a fun ride for them and very well deserved on both of their parts, but I do think they know their priorities and understand how fickle this business can be. This is a really nice honor for Sandra.

I remember when she did the television show Arli$$. She was great then but she is even better now. And I am glad that she's aware of how the hollywood thing works because most actors and actress aren't which is why some burnout quicker than others. Sandra will never burnout.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
