TORONTO — Canadian actress Sandra Oh is leaving Grey’s Anatomy.

The 42-year-old native of the national capital region announced this week she will leave the series at the end of its upcoming 10th season.

“Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go,” Oh told the Hollywood Reporter, referring to her character Cristina Yang.

It is not yet known how Oh will be written off the show.

The star has collected five Emmy nominations for her work on Grey’s Anatomy since the medical drama debuted in 2005. She won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award in 2006.

Oh was honoured with a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2011 and she was presented with the Key to the City of Ottawa in July.
