"They actually paid me to bring me out in L.A. to wait around and audition for their shows; it was such a sweet deal," the actress tells EW. "Lost was one of my first auditions but Grey's Anatomy was my first. I did not audition for Sandra Oh's character (Cristina Yang), it was for Izzie. And I got a callback." When Kim auditioned for Lost she actually was up for the role of Kate, which eventually went to her co-star Evangeline Lilly. "My character was written after my audition; Sun became Sun after my audition," Kim says.
