The "Killing Eve" star will be the third Asian American woman to host the NBC show.

Sandra Oh will host “Saturday Night Live” on March 30.

The “Killing Eve” star will be the third Asian American woman to do so, following Lucy Liu in 2000 and Awkwafina in October.

Oh will make her debut on the NBC show with Australian band Tame Impala as the musical guest. In an Instagram post, she wrote that the experience will be “terrifyingly fun.”
