Training: Sandra studied theatre at the Universities of Wisconsin and Boston and came to London in 1969. She was ‘discovered’ at the telephone switchboard of an advertising company by the then producer Julia Lisney, who cast her as a Gangster’s Moll in an ad for Birds Eye Beef Burgers. The commercial, directed by Alan Parker, ran for three years, won a gold award, and Sandra spent the next 35 years haunted by the role. Sandra then studied at the Central School of Speech and Drama and appeared in many more commercials and television series. Her unique vocal style brought her work in voiceovers and animated films and she played three characters in the animated movie Balto including the two dogs Sylvie and Dixie who conversed together. Sandra co-wrote and sang the theme tune to Button Moon and recorded three singles, one of which made it big in Japan.
