Grey's Anatomy: What The Cast Looked Like In The First Episode Vs Now
Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang)
When Grey’s Anatomy first aired, we all knew Cristina Yang as the cold yet brilliant doctor who was essentially Meredith Grey’s sidekick. In a lot of ways, she was the more likeable counterpart to Meredith’s often annoying character. We didn’t often get to see Cristina’s vulnerable side, but when we did, these moments were truly golden and made for the most memorable scenes in the show.
Everyone remembers that episode when Burke ditched her at the altar, and although it sent Cristina into meltdown mode, we got to see Sandra Oh channel her best self to give an incredible performance as her character Cristina.
After a decade of drama, Cristina decided to leave Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital and became the head of heart surgery where her former fiancé worked. In terms of appearance, Cristina didn’t change all that much, but there was definitely a visible resilience and strength that she developed over the years.
