Bullock kick-started her movie career in 1987, with a small part in the movie, Hangman. From here she appeared in the TV film, Bionic Showdown (a spin-off of The Six Million Dollar Man/The Bionic Woman), before appearing in Who Shot Pat?.

At this stage in her career, Bullock was not a house-hold name, and for the most part was very much a bit-part player. However, it was here in the 1980s that she began to find her feet, paving the way for a much bigger career to come.

  • Hangman (1987)

  • Who Shot Pat? (1989)
  • The Preppie Murder (1989)
  • A Fool and His Money (1989)
