The last season of Killing Eve left us wanting more. With the fourth season coming out next year, all we have left to do is binge-watch the show from season 1. However, if you really want to see more of Sandra Oh’s superb acting skills, there are many shows and movies out there that she’s starred in. We have right here a list of some of her older works that will surely entertain the fan in you!
First on the list, of course, is ABC’s hit Grey’s Anatomy which features Sandra Oh’s most iconic television role before Killing Eve.

She made us laugh and cry with her impressive performance which earned her both a Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award.
This one is one of Oh’s earliest films, dating back to 1994. It is a Canadian film about Jade Li, an up-and-coming actress struggling between her passion for acting and her ties with her conservative Chinese family. This film proves that early on, Sandra Oh already had the acting chops that earned her critical acclaim and the Genie Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for this film.
Drama may be Sandra Oh’s forte, but who knew she could also be so funny? If you’ve seen Princess Diaries, you may not remember Oh’s brief stint as Vice Principal Gupta. Though she only had a few scenes, she still shined as the funny, ass-kissing, kindhearted Vice Principal to Mia Thermopolis.
In this film, Sandra Oh plays Patti, Diane Lane’s character’s best friend who encourages her to go on a vacation to Tuscany. It’s pretty much like Eat, Pray, Love, but more awesome because Sandra Oh is in it! Fun fact: Oh’s character in the film is in a relationship with none other than Kate Walsh’s character. Talk about a Grey’s Anatomy crossover, huh?
American Crime is a unique anthology crime series with each season featuring a new plot, but having the same actors. Sandra Oh has a recurring role in season 3 as Abby Tanaka, a woman who runs a local shelter forced to turn away newcomers because of the lack of resources.

Sandra Oh finds herself in a psychological thriller in Hard Candy alongside another awesome actor Elliot Page. It’s about a 14-year old girl who lures, traps, and tortures a man she suspects is guilty of rape and murder. Talk about getting revenge, right?
