  • Quotes

    • Sandra: (On her relationship with actor Jared Padalecki) Nothing we achieve or accomplish, good or bad - it wouldn't matter if we didn't have each other to share it with. We both are very open, emotional people and I think we compliment each other perfectly. To be honest, I don't know if anyone else could deal with either one of us!

    • Sandra: (Commenting on her dance abilities in March 2008) I like doing choreography, but I'm just too old to pick it up like I used to do.

    • Sandra: I never planned on being an actress. I just moved down to Los Angeles to take a break before going to grad school after college and I fell into doing commercial work.

  • Sandra McCoy is a very talented actress.

    I admit I didn't really like her at first because she is dating Jared Padalecki but then I came to the realization that we will probably never be together(I'll keep my fingers crossed). So I decided that she wasn't so bad. She is actually very talented. She has appeared in more than ten music videos including two for *NSYNC and another one for Justin Timberlake. She has made countless guest appearances on TV shows like CSI, CSI:NY, and CSI:Miami. Not to mention hundreds of commercials. That's just the beginning, she has also been in several movies. She did all this without a family too. In 1993 when Sandra was only 14 her whole family was in a plane crash. Both her parents and her younger brother died. She was the only survivor. Tell me that's not heartbreaking.moreless
