Brittany Murphy
11.10.1977 – 12.20.2009

Some of us were more influenced by Brittany Murphy as Tai Frasier in Clueless than others.

In a fight with her friend Cher, Tai spurts, “Why am I even listening to you to begin with? You’re a virgin that can’t drive!”

In a later interview about the role, Brittany Murphy said,
“It’s hard for me to believe it’s been 10 years since that movie. I really was a virgin who couldn’t drive. I was living in an apartment in the Valley with my mom – and I remember starting to see these huge billboards of us all over town. It was amazing!”

Murphy appeared on the following TV shows: Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, Frasier, Sister, Sister, Party of Five and Boy Meets World. If you grew up with TGIF early 90’s TV, or grew to enjoy King of the Hill’s Luanne, then this woman touched you.

Having memorized most of the lines to Clueless, I bow my head in rememberence of the quick flash that was Brittany Murphy’s contribution to the coming of age of myself and other 80’s babies.
