For years, Sandra Oh has been a fixture on our TV screens — and she's played a variety of different characters who have all earned both critical and fan praise. The actress earned her first Emmy Award nomination and win for playing heart surgeon Cristina Yang in the medical drama series, Grey's Anatomy. She left the popular ABC show after 10 seasons in 2014, and her next acclaimed role would be as agent Eve Polastri in the spy thriller, Killing Eve.

Now, Sandra is taking on a completely different part in the Netflix series, The Chair. She's playing a chairperson in the struggling English department at a university, and her performance already has many convinced that she'll be getting even more Emmy nods.

While Sandra's professional accolades are obvious, and they speak for themselves, her personal life is much more mysterious.

The actress is famously private about her personal life, but we've managed to do some digging about her romantic interests. We can finally answer the "Is Sandra Oh married?" question on everyone's mind.

So, is Sandra Oh married?

Although she tries to keep her love life as under-wraps as possible, even Sandra isn't immune to paparazzi and media gossip. Back in 2003, the public learned that the actress tied the knot with Oscar-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne, after the two dated for five years.

But at soon as they made it official, things started to sour. In fact, the couple only lasted two or three years, until their official divorce was settled in 2007. Back in 2005, People reported the two had separated in order to settle their finances, a process that took the Hollywood couple as many years as their marriage lasted.

Alexander has since gotten remarried. In 2015, he tied the knot for a second time with Maria Kontos. The couple welcomed their first child together in 2017, when Alexander was 56 years old.

Once her divorce was finalized in 2007, the actress quickly moved on and began dating The Hereafter band member, Andrew Featherston. Although the two were notoriously private, the paparazzi did photograph them together several times.

It's unclear when the Under the Tuscan Sun star and Andrew parted ways, but the Emmy Award winning actress has been in a relationship with Lev Rukhin for quite some time. Sandra and Lev have reportedly been in a relationship since 2016, though they don't appear together in public very often.
