March 30th will forever be a memorable day for Sandra Oh.

On March 30th 2019, the Killing Eve actress made her debut on Saturday Night Live by hosting for the first time, and on March 30th 2018 she finally became an American citizen.

Sandra was born in Ottawa, Canada and has lived and worked in the United States since 1997. Twenty-one years later she received her citizenship and chose to commemorate the anniversary during her SNL monologue.

“I love Americans. You are confident and direct. And now that I am an Asian-Canadian-American, I’m trying to learn a thing or two about tooting my own horn.”

And she has every reason too, considering that in the past year she has co-hosted the Golden Globes and won a Globe, an Emmy, and a plethora of other awards for her role in Killing Eve.

Luckily, SNL regular, Leslie Jones, was on hand to offer Sandra some advice: “You have to learn how to accept a compliment… It’s not about the brag; it’s about the swag. You just have to have confidence.”

Go get ‘em, Sandra!
