Casting and creation[ edit ] Sandra Oh 's character was not supposed to be of Asian descent. On the creation of Yang, Shonda Rhimes said the character contained "a little bit of [her] personality". There's something interesting about a person who is that driven, a little bit emotionally disconnected but still a caring, sweet, and smart individual you could be friends with. From the beginning, I've been shaping Cristina around Sandra a little bit. One of my favorite things to do is take as much of her dialogue out of a scene as possible because she does so much nonverbally.
Then I just watch what she manages to do without having a word to say. Oh said her character was "a pert little blonde and the thing is the woman who runs the show, Shonda Rhimes, is a black woman, which makes a big [expletive] difference. It's a changing time on television because five or ten years ago you wouldn't have a major network show where half of the cast were not white. Online reported in Maythat Oh, as well as all original cast members, had signed on for two more years.
I mean, in real life there aren't many of them. But the ones you encounter are at the very top of their game.
You have to have a kind of ascetic personality to survive. Rhimes commented, "[We see] her struggle to suppress all of her humanity in pursuit of perfection. And in my mind, what we realize is that she is not cold. Scared that if she lets her emotions out, they will overtake her and she will be hurt. And you can't hate her. Because it's so incredibly human and understandable. This led to the two being dubbed "the twisted sisters".
At the conclusion of season threethe duo went on a "honeymoon" together, and Rhimes called it her favorite detail of the finale. It has long been her defining characteristic. If it occasionally makes her into a caricature, it has also unquestionably established that she would have an abortion in this circumstance.
As for the abortion in the eighth season, Rhimes commented: And I feel like that is a character who has never really wanted to be a mother. The idea that this woman would have a child that she did not want and resented for ruining her career and resented Owen for making her have [it] would have been hideous.
What I read when I read the season premiere, and this is just my take on it, is that it was very much two very analytical people, Owen and Cristina. They're very similar in a way, I think, as people. Two analytical people see each other over a crowded ER room and their eyes meet.
