Sandra, who played Dr Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy for ten years, is also well known for her starring role in Killing Eveand Disney’s animated film Turning Red.
This isn’t the first time Sandra Oh has represented Canada, in 2019 she also fronted Air Canada’s “Travel Like A Canadian” global campaign.
The light-hearted campaign poked fun at the politeness of Canadians - and their very Canadian phrases such as “loonie-toonie” and “ketchup chips.”
The global ad featured Sandra walking through an airport and teaching other cultures how to act like a local.
Whilst Sandra Oh was one of the few Canadian guests, ten local Australians were also invited to the Queen’s state funeral service.
Alongside Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, disability advocate Dylan Alcott was also in attendance.
Dylan famously made the Queen giggle during a zoom call earlier this year, where he made a number of cheeky quips.
During the call, he joked about his tennis career and retirement, telling the Queen he was “looking forward to coming to Wimbledon and drinking a Pimms this time rather than playing the whole time.”
His quip earned a chuckle from the monarch who replied with an “Oh, right!”
