Date of Birth : Aug 14th 1979
Sandra McCoy was born in San Jose, California (where she was also raised) to a Filipino/Irish family. Her mother, Madeline McCoy, was a high school P.E. teacher, tennis coach, and aerobics instructor. Her father, Gary McCoy, was the director of database management at the county Sherrif’s Department and a private pilot. Her brother, who was two years her junior, enjoyed playing basketball and wrestling. All three passed away in the fall of 1993 in a tragic airplane accident that left McCoy as the sole survivor.
McCoy has trained in dance and gymnastics since she was eight years old, and was on the cheerleading squad at Independence High School, as well as soccer and diving teams.
McCoy moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in show business after attaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Santa Clara University. Though her first attempt at Hollywood success, a four-girl pop group, fell through, McCoy has continued to enjoy several other successes in the film industry as both an actress and a dancer. Her first real break into the business was booking the lead role in ‘N Sync’s “Pop” music video, from which she will forever be known as the “Dirty Pop” Girl. In addition, she also cheered for the Los Angeles Lakers in the season of 2002–2003, and appeared in Music Video Beauties of 2004, her calendar debut.
