Biography


Solidly carving her niche in Hollywood with a series of scene-stealing supporting roles in either television or film features, Sandra Oh certainly is one excellent example to point out the outstanding potentiality that Asian people really possess in the world of playacting. A Canadian native born to Korean immigrants on July 20, 1971 in a suburb of Ottawa called Nepean, Ontario, Sandra has started her involvement in performing arts since she was still a child, practicing ballet at age 4 then going on-stage at age 10 in a theatrical production of "The Canada Goose." More inclined to the latter field, the girl thus enthusiastically nurtured the interest upon attending her hometown's Sir Robert Borden High School where she eagerly took drama classes and joined its plays while became an active member of the drama club, even participated in the Canadian Improv Games, an education based format of Improvisational theatre for the country's high schools.

As screen roles came next in 1989 through Marc Voizard's short feature of "The Journey Home" also TV series "Denim Blues", Sandra in turn became really convinced to go professional in acting which subsequently prompted her to enter Montreal's National Theatre School to hone her craft persistently up to her graduation in 1993. A chance to materialize her aim afterwards came forward when CBC held an open audition for a lead role in its TV-movie production of "The Diary of Evelyn Lau" and decided to answer the call despite her parents' disapproval, she brilliantly secured the part out of other 1,000 hopefuls beyond everyone's expectation. Putting the opportunity into good use, this lively performer wonderfully strove to deliver such stunning portrayal of the title character in her problematic life that critical praise plus honors inevitably poured in heavily soon after the feature's airing in the same year.
