Coinciding with the release of her new Netflix series “The Chair”, Sandra Oh indulged in one of her most unique interviews ever when she took questions from L.A.-based punk group The Linda Lindas, known for their hit “Racist Sexist Boy”.
When a member of the all-female band asked if Oh plays any musical instruments, she responded with a hilarious anecdote.
“Growing up in a, you know, Korean immigrant household, myself and my siblings all played piano, but I did not want to,” the “Killing Eve” star recalled. “I hated practicing so much I would record myself and play the recording. And my mom, who would be in the kitchen, would just think I was, like, practicing, and I would just play the recording.”
Oh also revealed that she knew she wanted to be an actor from a very young age, and singled out her new series “The Chair” as one of her most enjoyable professional experiences.
“‘The Chair’ was really fun,” said Oh of the series, in which she plays the newly installed chair of the English department in a prestigious New England college. “It was bananas. It was so bananas trying to shoot, it was like, in the height of the pandemic. Because it was in some ways so tough to shoot ‘The Chair’, people would come up with crazy ideas, and we would just get on an energy flow and it would be a lot of fun, even though it was really hard.”
