Sandra Oh, 48 (Grey's Anatomy, Sideways), is dealing with socially distant living, and exulting in the return of her hit show Killing Eve (AMC, BBC America, April 12, 9 p.m. ET). In Season 2, her assassin-hunting MI5 character Eve Polastri got shot by the gorgeous, impulsive, dressed-to-kill, completely insane assassin who's in love with her, Villanelle (Jodie Comer). But Eve survived — and in real life, Oh intends to do so, too.
Surprise! Eve's alive
Eve did not die, but she is forever changed. The naive bounce that she had, and even her go-getterness, has gone underground. She's very much a broken person. This season there is a harrowing event that energizes her to continue the pursuit of Villanelle again. During this time when people are at home and spending a lot of their time being entertained and positively distracted, I am very, very happy to be a part of that.
Last night I had a Zoom cocktail date with friends and then a Zoom dinner. It was really great. And I talk to my parents in Vancouver every day now. It's hard to be away from them. More than ever and deeper than ever, I am leaning into my meditation practice. The community that I already know shifted online, but it's much more frequent. I feel like if I don't keep the mind in a growth-brain, mindful space, the propensity to fall into anxiety or negative stories is quite high. I'm sure, as it is for everyone.
You go, “I have never watched The Sopranos.” When it was on I didn't have HBO — even though, for God's sake, I worked for HBO. It's been an amazing time to go back and look at all the classic films on the Criterion Channel. With so much production down, there are so many films and shows worth watching that have already been done. Like, why not watch The Wire again?
