After three years at the prestigious National Theatre School of Canada, Oh beat out more than 1000 other hopefuls and landed the coveted title role in the CBC telefilm, "The Diary of Evelyn Lau," based on the true story of a tortured poet who ran away from home and ended up a drug addict and prostitute in Vancouver. Her performance brought her a Gemini (Canada's Emmy) nomination for Best Actress and the 1994 Cannes FIPA d'Or for Best Actress.

Oh won her first Genie (Canada's Oscar) for her leading role in "Double Happiness," a bittersweet coming-of-age story about a young Chinese-Canadian woman.

On the big screen Oh can be seen starring alongside Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart in the recently released drama, "Rabbit Hole," as the teacher in "Ramona and Beezus," as well as "The Night Listener," "3 Needles," "For Your Consideration," Alexander Payne's "Sideways," for which she received a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, "Hard Candy" and "Sorry Haters." Other feature films include "Under the Tuscan Sun" with Diane Lane, "Rick," "Bean," "Guinevere," "The Red Violin," "Waking the Dead," "The Princess Diaries" and "Pay or Play." She also starred in Michael Radford's improvised "Dancing at the Blue Iguana," a bleak and raw view of life in a strip club in L.A, and in the independent "Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity." For "Last Night," a Canadian film about the end of the world, Oh won her second Genie Award for Best Actress in 1999.

In 2006 Oh starred in the play "Satellites" at New York's Public Theater for playwright Diana Son, and received both Drama Desk and Drama League nominations for her performance. She starred additionally in the world premieres of Son's "Stop Kiss," for which she received a Theatre World Award, and Jessica Hagedorn's "Dogeaters" at the La Jolla Playhouse. She was also seen in the "Vagina Monologues" in New York.

Oh resides in Los Angeles.
