Born in the Washington, D.C. area to an opera singer mother and a father who teaches classical voice, Bullock grew up frequently playing children's roles alongside her mother on stages across Europe. After studying drama at East Carolina University, she made her screen debut in New York in the television series "Working Girl," which led to her moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in feature films.
