Schitt’s Creek star Annie Murphy loves this actor so much she got him tattooed on her arm
Murphy says Jimmy Stewart ‘just has one of the most beautiful, kind, expressive faces I’ve ever laid eyes on’
When Annie Murphy stopped by our CBC Arts studio, things got a little emotional for the Schitt’s Creek star. After joking that as an actor she has “a bit of a problem with crying,” she unwittingly discovered a way to bring on her tears: talking about the actor who changed her life, the late Hollywood icon Jimmy Stewart.
The American actor is known for his roles in countless Hollywood classics, including Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), The Philadelphia Story (1940), Rear Window (1954), It’s a Wonderful Life, Vertigo (1958) and Anatomy of Murder (1959) — to name just a few. But it was his role in the 1950 film Harvey that made a lasting impression on Murphy.
Harvey is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Mary Chase and tells the story of Elwood P. Dowd (played by Stewart), a man who is best friends with an invisible rabbit named Harvey. “It’s just this kindness and this love that kind of radiates from Jimmy Stewart as he plays this part,” says Murphy.
She was so moved by the film that she had a silhouette of Stewart with his arm around his invisible friend tattooed on her arm, and thinking about Stewart’s performance still brings her to tears — something she realizes might come in handy when she needs to get emotional on camera. Although she doesn’t seem to need any help with her craft — she’s nominated for playing Alexis Rose on Schitt’s Creek in the Best Lead Actress, Comedy category at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards.
The cult comedy will air its final season in 2020.
Schitt’s Creek will have its last laugh in 2020.
Pop and the CBC have renewed the show for a sixth season, but creators Daniel and Eugene Levy say it will be the final run for the cult comedy.
The 14-episode season will begin filming in a few weeks and is set to air sometime next year. The creators said they’re happy to end the story on their terms: “We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning,” Daniel and Eugene Levy said.
“Schitt’s Creek is that rare zeitgeist show that creates incredible fandom, catalyzes culture and receives best-of-television critical praise for its intelligence, character development, laughter and heart,” said Brad Schwartz, president of CBS-owned Pop. “Schitt’s Creek has given all of us a joyous gift that, in my opinion, places the show among the very best. Everyone at Pop could not be more proud than to have been associated with what Dan Levy and Eugene Levy created alongside this amazing cast and crew. While we will miss this gem with all our heart, we are thrilled that the show will end its run exactly as the show’s creators intended.”
Originally commissioned by the CBC, Schitt’s Creek became a signature show for Pop. The current season, which concludes in April, draws about 200,000 viewers for initial airings, well above the cable net’s primetime average.
The show’s cast includes Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliott, Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Dustin Milligan, Sarah Levy and Karen Robinson. Daniel and Eugene Levy executive produce with Andrew Barnsley, Fred Levy, David West Read and Ben Feigin.
The creators’ full message about the final season is below.
To Our Dear Fans,
We are very excited to announce that Schitt’s Creek is coming back for a sixth season on CBC and Pop in 2020! We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we’ve decided season six will be our last. We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning. It’s not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow. We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways that you have.
We are all so excited to begin shooting these last fourteen episodes and can’t thank you enough for the overwhelming love and generosity you’ve shown us. We hope you continue to enjoy the rest of our fifth season as we prepare to shoot our sixth!
Best Wishes and Warmest Regards,
Dan and Eugene Levy
I am personally super sad about this news. This series has meant SO much to me. It has helped me through some difficult times. I am personally grateful to Dan and Eugene for creating this gem and introducing a wonderful set of characters and talented cast to play them. If it were not for this series I would not have been introduced to the body of work of so many talented actors. Thank you! I’m excited to see what the future holds for the entire cast as I truly believe they are all talented and amazing. This fansite will not be closing with the ending of the series and will continue to support Annie in her future endeavors.
I’ve added screencaps and stills of Annie from the last 3 episodes of Schitt’s Creek. Sorry for the delay! I’m in the middle of moving so my time online is limited.
You can also buy Annie’s song A Little Bit Alexis which was featured on Schitt’s Creek. So funny! You can purchase the single here. I am loving this season of Schitt’s Creek. How about you?
We all buy clothes, but no two people shop the same. It can be a social experience, and a deeply personal one; at times, it can be impulsive and entertaining, at others, purpose-driven, a chore. Where do you shop? When do you shop? How do you decide what you need, how much to spend and what’s “you”? These are some of the questions we’re putting to prominent figures in our column “How I Shop.”
It’s a travesty that it took me (and a few others) so long to start watching “Schitt’s Creek.” The Canadian gem of a sitcom chronicles the Rose family relocating to the rural town of Schitt’s Creek — which patriarch Johnny (co-creator and comedic legend Eugene Levy) bought as a joke for his son David (Levy’s real life son, Dan, also co-creator) — after losing the family fortune.
Yes, the series — now entering its fifth season — is stacked with laugh-out-loud dialogue, ridiculous scenarios and awkwardly heartfelt family moments, but “Schitt’s Creek” also brings some serious fashion with a capital F. It’s as if the outrageous designer wardrobes are a fifth member of the Rose family, joining former soap star and Daphne Guinness-esque matriarch Moira (Catherine O’Hara) and socialite daughter Alexis (Annie Murphy), who always looks like she wandered out of the VIP tent at Coachella.
“That was a big thing for Dan [Levy] and costume designer Debra Hanson: Let the clothes speak for themselves, so you don’t have to keep reiterating that this family is not from this town,” explains Murphy, in New York celebrating Canada Goose Project Atigi, which showcases Inuit craftsmanship through a limited-edition parka collection. “They walk into a room wearing completely inappropriate clothes and you’re reminded constantly that they’re fish out of water.”
The Canadian actress is just as delightful as her character, and generously shared where she found her favorite purchase that would probably elicit an “eww” from Alexis, as well as what it’s like to shop with facial expression master and oft-Rick Owens-clad Dan Levy, who procures the designer pieces for the show. Read on for the highlights of our conversation.
“I would describe my style as ‘bag lady chic,’ in the sense that it’s ‘the baggier the better’ a lot of the time. Comfort is paramount. I love fashion; I love looking at it. I love watching it walk by on the street. But when it gets down to it, I find that there’s so much of it and it’s so overwhelming to me that my fallback is just jeans and a t-shirt. I like to branch out of my comfort zone if I’m shooting, though.
The show has certainly opened my eyes as to what’s out there. Sometimes I do pick something up off the rack that I wouldn’t otherwise. I’ve seen so many things on the rack of costumes and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, never in a million years would that look good,’ and I put it on and ‘Oh my God, there it is!’ It’s also inspired me — and Dan Levy might contest this — to put in a little more effort when going out of the house. Just juzh myself up a little bit more. Put my best foot forward a little bit more, thanks to Alexis.
There’s a lot of facial expression [from Levy when he gives styling feedback]. When I come out of the changing room in our fittings, I know immediately if it’s a go or not. If it’s not, I just go right back in and rip it off. I hate it. But usually it’s a go because he’s a compulsive online shopper. Now, by season five, he knows what will look good and what won’t. So it’s usually more a hit than a miss.
I get to look over Dan’s shoulder a lot when he is online shopping. I’ve been in a few last minute binds where we have a thing to go to and I don’t have anything to wear. So he takes me through our wardrobe trailer and we just kind of pick things out together — slash — he picks things out for me.
Also, one of his best friends works at Derek Lam, so we actually went shopping at the store one season and got to pick out a few things for the show. I also wear a lot of Isabel Marant as Alexis and carry a lot of Celine bags, which I didn’t even know existed. I didn’t know any of these names when we started and now…
Dan has like an encyclopedic memory [for fashion]: ‘oh, that was from the cover of Vogue in 1994’ and he’s usually right. It’s freakish. A deep obsession. It’s like talking to a physicist. I know nothing about what he knows so much about. He likes talking about it and educating me about it, but I don’t think too much has really stuck with this old girl.
I get a lot of people coming up to me being like, ‘Hey, have you seen ‘Schitt’s Creek?’ There’s a girl on the show that you kind of look like.’ I say, ‘That’s… that’s me.’ Instead of people being like ‘holy shit, really?’ They’re like, ‘Nooo…. what?!’ Then I have to do ‘ew, Day-vid’ and then they’re like, ‘OK it’s you.’ Sometimes it takes convincing.[Being on the show has inspired me to] take a little bit more risk with what I wear and realize that things you wouldn’t necessarily pair together can actually work really beautifully. Also, accessories are now much — don’t look at me now, this is a bad example — but Moira is constantly brooch-ed, and bedazzled and ring-ed and necklace-ed and hatted and all the stuff. So it’s really proven how much they can add to an outfit. I’m starting to take away bits and pieces.
For my own shopping, I go to Zara — and then I go to Zara online from the comfort of my own living room. Sometimes I go to [North American thrift store chain] Value Village. I have probably four bursts in me a year. I wake up and I’m like, ‘Today’s the day. I’m getting my fucking shopping done.’ I go and I just blitz it out. Literally just sifting through item by item until my hands smell weirdly musty and then I know it’s time to pack it in. But it takes a very specific mood for me to wake up and want to do it.
My favorite thrifting find isn’t a chic jacket or something. I found a bright blue onesie, like hooded zip-up onesie made from sweat clothes material. It’s pajamas. It’s basically a stranger’s pajamas. I was like, ‘This will do me very well.’ I wear it all the time. For all I know someone died in it, but at least they died comfortably.”
