Farewell, Cristina: Sandra Oh and 'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes say goodbye to a beloved character

She’s an ambitious woman, to say the least. A straight-talker whose tough spirit has carried her to the top of a field that requires a most delicate touch. A woman who mends hearts for a living and, ironically, has had to work the hardest to fix her own. And, all the while, she’s one half of a friendship so pure and honest that it has brought us to tears (several, several times).

Above all, Cristina Yang, the doctor portrayed fearlessly by Sandra Oh for 10 years on Grey’s Anatomy, is a survivor — and not just because she managed to be one of few people to survive the show’s numerous disasters. So when Cristina’s former mentor and love, Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington), offered her the position of a lifetime two weeks ago, we couldn’t fault her for jumping at the chance to lead a top-of-the-line research facility. As Burke said, she’d earned the opportunity. And as Cristina prepares to hop on a plane and leave Grey Sloan Memorial for good, EW spoke with Oh and show creator Shonda Rhimes about the journey that’s led to the bittersweet departure of a fond friend, doctor and dancing buddy.

All this time, Cristina Yang had a 20-something daughter?!

Okay, not really. Still, after 10 seasons on Grey’s Anatomy, it’s still a little jarring to see Sandra Oh in street clothes — and even more jarring to learn that soon, she’ll be playing someone’s mom. (Meredith, of course, probably encouraged her to take the part. Because Meredith and Cristina are real, right?)

'Grey's Anatomy scoop': Sandra Oh teases conflict between Cristina and... Spoiler!

Sandra Oh, who plays the brainy, acerbic Dr. Cristina Yang, will be departing Grey’s Anatomy at the end of this tenth season, but not before the show rips open one of its central relationships: the friendship between Cristina and Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo.) From the sound of it, the conflict will be as messy and difficult as any of the show’s toughest surgeries.

“A beautiful storyline is coming up about the friendship between Cristina and Meredith, and I love it,” says Oh. “I love it because it’s challenging and it’s like a real growing pain that they go through. … At the beginning of the season they have quite different lives: Meredith is married and has two children, and Cristina, who has now parted ways from Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd), is a non-parent and is very focused on her work and life, so that causes a riff.” READ FULL STORY

Sandra Oh to leave 'Grey's Anatomy'

Seriously.

EW can confirm that five-time Emmy nominee Sandra Oh — and onetime Golden Globe winner — Sandra Oh will depart ABC’s venerable medical drama in 2014, after 10 years of playing prickly, brilliant surgeon Cristina Yang.

“It’s been a great privilege to play the character of Cristina Yang on GA and I am both sad and excited to see where this, her final season will take her,” Oh said in a statement. “It was an emotional and deeply creative decision for me and I feel fully supported by Shonda and the writers. It’s so rare in an actor’s life to be able to explore and grow a character so fully, so completely. I am profoundly grateful to everyone at GA for the opportunity.”
