When you think of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), you immediately think of them as the dark twisted sisters. Sandra and Ellen showed the people what being anyone’s ‘person’ really means. Even when Christina’s character exited the show, we missed her and their friendship.
However, as much as we’d like to believe that only Sandrah Oh and Ellen Pompeo’s characters showed true friendship, it isn’t true. Fans have pointed out that there’s another character on the show that shared a more wholesome friendship with Christina.
William Daniels played the character of Dr. Craig Thomas and shared a wholesome bond with Sandra Oh. Dr. Thomas pushed the limitations of Christina Yang to next level. He helped Christina achieve her best potential and realize her true caliber.
Even more, it was only Dr. Thomas that did not see Sandra Oh‘s obsession with surgery weird. He was just what she needed on the show to feel validated. He gave a heart touching speech where he asked her to train people just like he trained her. He said she’s meant to do great things and she should never disappoint.
