Brittany Murphy

Performer
( b. Nov 10, 1977 Atlanta, Georgia, USA - d. Dec 20, 2009 Los Angeles, California, USA ) Female
Actress Brittany Murphy starred in A View From the Bridge on Broadway. Born in Atlanta, Murphy rose to prominence as one of the young stars of the seminal 1995 teen film Clueless. In Amy Heckerling's updating of Jane Austin's Emma, she played Tai, and awkward new kid in a ritzy California school who is socially adopted by a popular girl Cher, played by Alicia Silverstone.

Her sole foray into Broadway was memorable. In 1997, she starred as Katie, the object of longshoreman Anthony LaPaglia's unknowing lust in Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge. In the role, the petite Ms. Murphy put her whiskey-voiced, natural girlish sensuality to good use. The New York Times' Vincent Canby called her "exceptional".

Ms. Murphy grew up in New Jersey and later moved with her mother to Los Angeles to pursue acting. In May 2007, Murphy married Brittish screenwriter Simon Monjack in a private Jewish ceremony.
