Who is Sandra Oh?

Sandra, 47, was born on July 20, 1971, and is a Canadian actress.

Born to Korean immigrant parents, she was one of three children.

She rejected a four-year journalism scholarship at the Carleton University to study drama at the National Theatre School of Canada.

Sandra promised her parents that she would try her hand at acting for a few years and if it all failed she would return to university.

What's the Golden Globes 2019 host's net worth?

Sandra is worth $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

That equates to around £19.6 million.

Her wealth is down to the countless successful movies and television series she's been in.

What TV and film has the Killing Eve actress appeared in?

Sandra is best known for her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on Grey's Anatomy.

Her role on the medical drama won her a Golden Globe Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and five Emmy nominations.

However, that's not all as her credits as an actress are countless.

She also starred in the BBC America drama Killing Eve as the MI5 agent Eve Polastri.

Sandra received an Emmy 2018 nomination within the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for her work in Killing Eve and is up for a Golden Globe.

Her movie credits include The Princess Diaries (2001), Blindness (2008) and Rabbit Hole (2010).

In 2019, the actress hosted the Golden Globe awards as the first host of Asian descent alongside Andy Samberg.

Apart from hosting it, she also accepted the award for Best Actress in a TV Drama for her part in Killing Eve.

This, together with her Golden Globe for Grey's Anatomy, made her the first woman of Asian descent to have multiple Golden Globes.
