Trivia:

She has the distinction of playing two characters that co-exist in Armistead Maupin's fictional universe. In Further Tales of the City (2001), she portrayed a bitchy newswoman who complicated "DeDe Day"'s mission to protect her twins, Anna and Edgar. In The Night Listener (2006), Oh portrays an adult "Anna Day". See more »
