Elizabeth “Bitsie” Andrea Tulloch (born January 19, 1981) is an American actress. She is known for her role of Juliette Silverton in Grimm.
Tulloch was born in San Diego, California, but grew up in Spain, Uruguay, and Argentina. “Bitsie” is not a contraction of Tulloch’s given name, Elizabeth, but a homage to her oddly nicknamed grandfather, a World War II bomber pilot. Her father, Andrew Tulloch, works in Latin American banking, which is why she grew up abroad. After returning to the U.S., she went to middle and high school in Bedford, New York. Tulloch graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University 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.
In December 2014, Tulloch confirmed she was in a relationship with her Grimm co-star David Giuntoli. In July 2016, she and Giuntoli revealed they became engaged in April 2016.
During her time living and working in Portland (where her drama Grimm is filmed), Tulloch became a fan of the Portland Trail Blazers and is often seen attending games with her co-stars. Tulloch is bilingual being fluent in English and Spanish.
