I first saw Brittany Murphy on the Disney Channel television show, The Torkelsons. Many people don't quite remember this show, but my mom and I loved it and tried to watch every episode. She wasn't a main character but her character did out shine many on the show. She had such a quirky and bubbly yet lovable personality. This also followed her to the television show Sister, Sister with the Mowry twins, Tia and Tamara as the friend who was able to tell them apart when nobody else knew the difference. My most memorable role of her to this day is her role as Tai on Clueless. She was the main one that couldn't fit in to the one who became more popular than the best. In this film she kind of reminded me of me in my small circle of friends. The klutz, the awkward one, the geek, but yet the one with true inner beauty that shined throughout. I really loved the movie and she played the hell out of that part. it nearly had me convinced. :-)
But this girl was multi-talented and versatile playing any type of role to the fullest that came her way. From her angelic singing voice in Happy Feet to her sinister role in Sin City and from her innocence in Clueless to her rawness in 8 mile, this woman will be remembered. May she rest in peace and my prayers go out to her friends and family.
