PHOTOS: ' Grey's Anatomy' Cast, Creators Say Farewell to Sandra Oh What was your last day on set like? I sit in the exact same spot every time because I'm a creature of habit.
I will say, my last day, people asked if I was going to be sad. But by the end of the day — which ended up being late since we shot late — Kevin threw me this little party. Every single table read for 10 years — that's 200-odd episodes.
There was lots of celebration because the party was myself, [co-showrunners] Tony Phelan and Joan Rater, who [both also] left. It was this ritual that we have every week, to come together to read these words. What got me was, we were starting and as we're all sitting down, our casting director Linda Lowy came up to me — she cast the pilot and put me in a lot of stuff before she came up to me and hugged me.
Gaius Charles [Shane] and Tessa Ferrer [Leah] had left earlier that week. Then we read the script, and it was great, and I was filled with all these feelings. We usually have a big lunch, but we didn't have it this year so I gave out 250 gifts.
You've had the whole season and more to prepare for your final scene. My very final moment of shooting was with Kevin, and it was the final moment where Cristina says goodbye to Owen.
