Brittany Murphy Has Passed Away

According to Entertainment Weekly, 32-year-actress Brittany Murphy died Sunday morning from cardiac arrest.  She entertained many of us by playing her character roles in the movies Clueless, 8 Mile and Sin City, as well as the voice Luanne on the series KING OF THE HILL.  Soap viewers will recall one of her first roles as Abby on Fox's PARTY OF FIVE in 1994.

In recent years, Murphy dabbled increasingly in music, collaborating with Paul Oakenfold on the 2006 single "Faster Kill Pussycat" and performing on the soundtrack to the huge box office hit Happy Feet with covers of songs by Earth Wind and Fire and Queen

Here at We Love Soaps we send our blessings to Ms. Murphy's family and loved ones.  Another great talent has been taken from us way too soon.

Please share any memories or thoughts below.


  1. Very sad.
    I have only ever liked her in clueless.
    I don't want to sound harsh but I'm betting my right arm, drugs are involved.

  2. It's sad to see anyone go, especially someone so young and full of promise.

    I really hope it was just a tragic health issue and nothing more.

  3. Everything I've read says it is just a tragic health issue, and "natural causes" - if it can be 'natural' to lose someone so vibrant at such a young age due to cardiac arrest.
    My favorite role of hers has to be Luann Platter.
    My condolences to her family and friends.

  4. My earliest memories of brittany are actually pre clueless. She was one of the stars in the short lived series Almost Home and I think right prior to that she was in episodes of Blossom as well. She was a great actress and her death comes as a real shock. Wow cardiac arrest at 32 that is just crazy. my condolences to her family. she will be missed.

  5. It is sad to see someone so young die. I loved Brittnay Murphy, she was my favorite actress. People are so mean,someone has lost their daughter.You dont know if drugs was in her life, stop saying things you dont know.If you dont have anything good to say,you need to shut your big mouth, someone has lost someone they love.see if you like someone talking about someone you love. Brittnay was a very great actress, she deserved more then what she got frome holly wood.
