Date of Birth : Jun 26th 1964
Born in a Virginia suburb of Washington, DC to German opera singer Helga Meyer and American voice teacher John Bullock, she grew up on the road with her parents and younger sister Gesine.
Sandra would often perform in the children’s chorus of whatever production her mother was in. That singing talent would later come in use for her role of an aspiring country singer in “The Thing Called Love” (1993).
Sandra graduated from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia, USA in 1982. She later enrolled in East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, USA where she studied acting. Shortly thereafter she moved to New York to pursue a career on the stage. This led to acting in television programs and then feature films.
Her earlier memorable performances were in “Demolition Man” (1993) and “Wrestling Ernest Hemingway” (1993) but did not achieve the stardom that seemed inevitable for her until her work in the smash hit “Speed” (1994). She now ranks as one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood and won an Academy Award in 2010 for her role as Leigh Anne Tuohy in “The Blind Side” (2009).
