Sandra Bullock biography

On July 26, 1966 at Arlington, Virginia, a beautiful baby girl was born. Her full name was Sandra Annette Bullock. The mother was Helga Meyer. She was a German opera singer. The father was John Bullock. He was an American voice teacher. Three years later, young Sandy got a little sister. Her name was Gesine.

Young Sandy was raised both in Salzburg, Austria (since her mother worked in Germany) and Arlington, Virginia (since her father worked in America). At the age of eight, she performed on stage for the first time. She played the role of a gypsy child, along with her mother. Then, young Sandy would perform at the children’s choir at her mother’s production. At the age eleven, Sandy got a scar on her forehead (above her right eye) from tumbling into a creek. Since the 6th grade, she set her mind on acting.

When Sandy turned thirteen, they moved to Arlington, Virginia. She attended Washington-Lee High School and joined a cheerleading squad. Sandy graduated from WLHS at 1982. She was voted “The Girl Most Likely to Brighten Your Day.” Sandy (an above average student) later pursued higher learning in East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. There, Sandy majored in Drama. She studied under the instructions of Don Biehn. Here, she performed Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Sandy was three credits behind from graduating. She moved to New York, to study method acting. She was instructed by Sanford Meisner. She then dishonestly became a bartender and a waitress. Four years after leaving ECU without a degree, Sandy moved to Los Angeles, and got the lead-role for “Working Girl”.

Now, Sandy is one of the BIGGEST movie stars in the world! She’s made many great movies. But, Sandy says, “I really think I shouldn’t be called a superstar.”

“I chose roles that were similar to what was happening in my life.”
