Type :  

  Summary  

Elizabeth Tulloch , known professionally as Bitsie Tulloch) is an American actress.

  Biography  

 early life and education
Tulloch was born in San Diego, California but grew up in Spain, Uruguay, and Argentina. Bitsie isn't a contraction of Tulloch's birthname, Elizabeth, but an homage to her unusually-nicknamed grandfather, a WWII bomber pilot. Her father, Andrew Tulloch, works in Latin American banking, which is why she grew up in Europe and South America. After returning to the U.S., she went to middle and high school in Bedford, New York. Tulloch attended Harvard University. She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard with a double-major in English and American Literature, and Visual and Environmental Studies. Tulloch is of Scottish descent on her father's side, and Spanish descent on her mother's side.

 acting career
 Film & Theater
Tulloch's first acting credit was as R2-D2's 'girlfriend' in R2-D2: Beneath the Dome, a mockumentary produced by George Lucas telling the life story of the fictional robot R2-D2 from the Star Wars film series. She starred as 'Sally' in the premiere of Sam Forman's play, "Quarterlife", which opened at the Pico Playhouse in March 2006. The L.A. Times wrote, "Superbly performed...the scene at the end of the play, between Sally and Jack , was heartbreaking and beautiful...The lead actress, Bitsie Tulloch, absolutely brilliant."

She was in Lakeview Terrace, directed by Neil LaBute and starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington, and Patrick Wilson, and worked with Barbara Hershey on a film called Uncross the Stars. In the fall of 2009 she filmed the romantic comedy Losing Control. Tulloch voiced one of the characters in Alpha and Omega, a 3-D computer animated film, which was released in September, 2010.

Tulloch appears in award-winning The Artist with John Goodman and James Cromwell, which is being released by The Weinstein Company in December, 2011. Her co-star Jean Dujardin won the Best Actor Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where the film premiered.

She recently wrapped an independent film opposite Marguerite Moreau and Jason Gray-Stanford, which she also co-produced. Movies Tyranny and Riding the Pine are in pre-production.

 Television
Tulloch played the lead role in Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz's drama, quarterlife, which premiered on NBC in early 2008. While the series was quickly pulled and moved to Bravo, Tulloch was hailed for her performance. The Los Angeles Times wrote: "She's the best realized of the bunch... Tulloch, who plays her, seems destined to be better known." She was often compared to the 'next' Claire Danes: "Will this be the first online show to create a real star? It looks likely: The gorgeous 26-year-old Tulloch clearly possesses Danes-like smarts and magnetism." "If nothing else, Zwick and Herskovitz have an eye for female talent who possess that rare combination of raw acting chops and killer looks. They discovered Claire Danes ("My So-Called Life") and Evan Rachel Wood ("Once & Again"), and they might have done it again in quarterlife with Bitsie Tulloch."

Tulloch has appeared on television shows House, Cold Case, The West Wing, Moonlight, and Outlaw. In 2007 she filmed a recurring role as a Dharma initiative scientist for the ABC series Lost, but her role was re-cast due to scheduling conflicts with quarterlife.

In 2009, Tulloch shot one of the 3 leads in HBO's comedy pilot Washingtonienne based on the book by Jessica Cutler. The pilot was produced by HBO and Sarah Jessica Parker.

In early 2010 she filmed Most Likely to Succeed, a 1/2 hour comedy pilot for Imagine Entertainment through the FOX network, and a recurring role on NBC's Outlaw.

She is one of the series regulars on NBC's series Grimm (2011-), described as a dark but fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist.
