Diversity On Grey's Anatomy

Grey's Anatomy star Sandra Oh has been outspoken about her Hollywood struggles and that show's concerted effort to reflect the cultural diversity of the US.

‘‘What's great about our show is that you can have two people who are not white talking together and they're main characters,'' she says.

‘‘It's a tremendous change. Hopefully people appreciate it."

‘‘It's hard in Hollywood if you're different in any way. Being Asian-American it poses tremendous challenges and difficulties. "

‘‘I don't think it's temporary,'' she says of the move to more diverse casts. ‘‘It's a change but it's a very slow change because there are other casts that are reflecting that, like Lost. I think there's some in House.''
