Sandra Bullock
Born Washington DC on July 26th 1964

Sandra is half Albanian, half German. Her mother was a well known opera singer so when Sandra was young, she and her sister would regularly travel to Europe with their mother when she was performing. Sandra always seemed to fit in at school and was even voted "Most Likely To Brighten Up Your Day".

After high school, Sandra went to East Carolina University and majored in drama. Shedidn't finish her degree and headed to New York to try and start her career. There she took intensive acting classes and worked in a bar to make some money. During the three years she tended bar, Sandra went to every audition she could.

In 1988, things started to look up, Sandra was given a good review for her part in the Off Broadway production 'No Time Flat'. Sandra got an agent and started to get television roles like the bionic woman on 'Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man And The Bionic Woman'

Sandra's next move was to LA where her first starring role was a bit of a flop and she had to start taking on casual work to pay the bills. In 1992 Sandra took a role in the film 'Love Potion No.9', it wasn't a big hit but it introduced her to Tate Donovan who became her boyfriend for the next three years.

In 1993 Sandra got a whopping five film roles but the biggest was in Demolition Man and it meant the right people noticed her. One of these people was the director Jan De Bont who gave Sandra her role in 'Speed' alongside Keanu Reeves.'Speed' became incredibly popular and helped Sandra to secure parts in 'While You Were Sleeping' and 'A Time To Kill' in which she started to command a film stars salary.

Unfortunately around 1996 Sandra made a few bad films like 'Speed 2' and took parts in films that just didn't do well. However Sandra is smart and formed her own production company, Fortis Films, which made 'Hope Floats'. It wasn't a blockbuster but it put her career back on track.

Sandra then made 'Practical Magic' starring with Nicole Kidman. Her next move was to provide the voice for the animated film 'The Prince Of Egypt' before starring on 'Forces Of Nature' with Ben Affleck. More recently she played a recovering alcoholic in '28 days'. Lets hope Sandra continues to make her unique films for a long time.

I've been doing research, although her father may be of Albanian descent. It says he was born and raised in America.

I cant find credible sources suggesting Sandra Bullock is of Albanian descent.
However I found this site showing she is of Irish,English,French American and German.

"The American actress was born to a German mother named Helga D. Meyer. Her father, John Bullock is of Irish, English, French American."
