Age and Location: 17, actor. Providence: Los Angeles. From Daytime... : Bruckner got her start at the age of 11 on The Bold and the Beautiful. Of the soap, she says, "It was a really good experience, and I basically learned everything I needed to, bit it wasn't my cup of tea. About a year and a half into it I decided I wanted to leave." ...To the big time: Next month, she stars with David Stratharin in Blue Car, a dark coming-of-age drama that made the film-festival rounds last year. "I never expected it to get into Sundance and the Toronto Film Festival-it was really great. I'm really proud of the film." All work and no play: I'm shooting a movie in North Carolina right now called Stateside with Val Kilmer, Rachael Leigh Cook and Joe Mantegna, and Carrie Fisher. And I just finished doing a movie in Russia called The Long Sunset, with Anne Archer and Gérard Depardieu." in a few years everyone will be speaking Hungarian: "we shot The Long Sunset in St. Petersburg. I grew up in L.A. but my mom is Russian, so I’ve been there before-it's beautiful. And I speak Russian. And Hungarian ... my father lives in Hungary."
