BIOGRAPHY OF SANDRA BULLOCK

In the Alemannic town, Bullock began studying choral singing and, despite the constant changes of residence around Europe, she managed to perfect her singing and dancing skills by taking part in her mother’s theatrical productions. Back in America, Sandra attended Washington-Lee High School, where she graduated in 1982, and later East Carolina University in Greenville, where she graduated in Performing Arts in 1987.

In these early years of her career, Bullock received several leading roles in minor films, such as Who Shot Patakango? (1989) and Love potion (1992).

The sequel Miss FBI – Special Infiltrator, however, it does not achieve the same success as its predecessor.

Bullock later plays a book publisher who pretends not to be repatriated to Canada to marry her secretary in Blackmail of love (2006) and is nominated for the third time for a Golden Globe for Best Actress, an award that she will finally win in 2010 thanks to her performance in The Blind Side (2009), a film with which she also won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
