Sandra announced over the summer that this season would be her last — and as sad as we are to see her go, we're excited for all the career opportunities the 42-year-old star will have after wrapping up her ten-season tenure.
"I want this to be a celebration," she told The Hollywood Reporter in August. "I want us to get to that point where we see this character ride off into the sunset. Letting go of such a huge part of my life … I want to cry right now. Grey's has been the most important role of my life. Playing Cristina and growing her and growing myself in her, I want to usher her into the next section of her life in the best way possible. It's got to be Cristina Yang's happily ever after."
Sounds like we'll see what a few different "ever afters" look like!
