The upcoming 10th season of "Gray's Anatomy" will be the last for Sandra Oh, one of the show's original cast members. She's opted to hang up her scrubs and leave the show she's starred in since 2005. The news of Oh's departure, which first appeared in the Hollywood Reporter, has been confirmed by ABC. Oh played sharp-tongued and ultracompetitive surgeon Cristina Yang, a role that earned her five Emmy nominations for supporting actress. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times In a statement, Oh said, "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. It was an emotional and deeply creative decision for me and I feel fully supported by Shonda and the writers.

Seven years after his controversial exit, Isaiah Washington is heading back to "Grey's Anatomy. " Oh, but it will be a short visit to Seattle Grace. The actor, who played Dr. Preston Burke on the ABC medical drama, will reprise his role in one episode set to air in May, an ABC spokesperson confirmed. The specific date of the episode was not revealed. It's sure to be an interesting return. Washington was fired from the Shonda Rhimes series in the wake of growing tension on the set - headlines circulated that he directed gay slurs at then-closeted co-star T.R. Knight and was involved in on-set disputes with his co-stars.

OH, YES! SANDRA OH IN THE SPOTLIGHT. The actress -- who was largely, and some might say unforgivably, overlooked for her helmet-wielding performance in the indie hit film "Sideways" -- earned an Emmy nod for her role as a doctor-in-training in "Grey's Anatomy." Other critical favorites who were nominated: CCH Pounder, the veteran character actress who plays a morally upright detective on "The Shield," and Blythe Danner as the sharp-tongued mom on "Huff."

Sandra OH wants to be Kathy Bates. Sweet. A pretty, bouncy, 32-year-old Canadian actress of Korean extraction has her sights set on being one of the grande dames of American theater and film. "She is a terrific person," says Oh. "I respect her as an actor. She's moved into other things. She's directing now. She continues to act. She had a gi-normous theater career." (Oh likes the expressive amalgam of "gigantic" and "enormous.") "I think most people think she was born when she did 'Misery.'

Sandra Oh may tell her guest that when it comes to training and experience as an actor, "I'm still really green." But moments later, the star of Mina Shum's new film, "Double Happiness," talks about how much she has already gone through in her 20-or-so years. Her memories sound awfully close to the struggles of Jade Li, the film's young Chinese Canadian heroine, who hungers for the double happiness of an acting career and pleasing her conservative Chinese-born parents.

Caught between a bunny and a new girl, the talk of TV this season has been double-X, as in chromosome. What's up with all the women? They're saying "vagina" and going all Count of Monte Cristo! "New Girl" is adork-able (or is she?), "Pan Am" is a female-centric "Mad Men" (or is it?), "The Playboy Club" glamorizes sexism and "Charlie's Angels" is even more ridiculous the second time around! After the 2010-11 season proved dismal for non-males, women came back with a vengeance. We were all so busy talking about the Big Trend that we missed the revolution.

SANDRA OH sits in a small upstairs room of Manhattan's Public Theater, amid the well-worn furniture and dirty white anti-glamour of a not-for-profit backstage. Makeup-free and nursing a V8, berry juice and coffee, Oh wraps her long, impossibly delicate limbs around herself as she perches on a vinyl couch, near the sparse dressing room she shares with two other actresses. Suffice it to say, the setting is a far cry from Oh's life in L.A. and her work as Dr.
