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.

Press/Video: Schitt’s Creek Video: Alexis Shames David Into Double ‘Adventure’ Date in Season 5 — 2019 FIRST LOOK

Schitt’s Creek‘s David is going to liven up his ho-hum relationship with Patrick even if it literally kills him.

In this exclusive sneak peek at the riotous Pop comedy’s Season 5 premiere (Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 10/9c), Alexis — faux concerned that her brother’s romance with Patrick is on a collision course with “snoozetown” — invites her sib and his other half to accompany her and Ted on their latest intimacy-boosting “adventure date.”

For his part, David is too perturbed by the mere accusation that his love life has hit a repetitive patch to even consider such an overture. But Alexis has the receipts, courtesy of a decades-old issue of Major Lady magazine.

Press PLAY above to watch David and Alexis do their supremely entertaining brother-sister dance, and then scroll down for a first look at the somewhat dangerous looking double date that results. And programming reminder: As a pre-Season 5 appetizer (or is it a Season 4 dessert?), Schitt’s Creek will air a standalone Christmas special on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 10/9c.

Press/Video: How Annie Murphy Learned To Advocate For Herself – And Found Success

The Schitt’s Creek star on how she learned to speak up for herself and the moment she found out she got her life-changing role.

You may recognize Annie Murphy as quick-witted former rich girl Alexis Rose on the hit TV comedy Schitt’s Creek. Here, the actor talks about how she learned to cope with rejection in the industry, and find her voice offscreen.

Did you always know you wanted to be an actor?
For a long time, I thought I was going to go into law, but theatre just kept being so present in my life. [But] being on stage and getting that [positive] feedback from the audience, it was a really incredible feeling that I didn’t really want to part with.

Why is it important to advocate for yourself?
When I started out in the industry, I felt the need to say “yes” to everything. You wanted to be an actor, so you took acting jobs. So your agent would call you up, and be like, “I’ve got an audition where you’re going to play a nude woman who transforms into a werewolf in the back of a truck!” And you’re like, “Yay, I can’t wait to do that audition in front of a stranger.” [That’s why] it’s very important to listen to your gut.

How did you learn to handle rejection?
There is so much heartbreak and letdown in this industry. You get your heart set on something, and then you’re sitting by the phone for three weeks and it never rings. I don‘t think that necessarily ever gets easier, but you learn that there’s going to be something else — that’s going to make you feel the same way — coming down the tracks. I don’t think the heartbreak ever gets that much easier to swallow. You just learn to look at it from a different perspective.

What advice do you have for some just starting out in this industry?

Really have the confidence that you have something awesome to bring to the table. Write and create as much as you can, because if you’re sitting around waiting for someone to give you a well-round, interesting, incredible role on a silver platter, you’re going to be a real cute skeleton covered in cobwebs when that happens.

What’s been the best moment of your career so far?
When I got the part on Schitt’s Creek! When I got the call, I just jumped around and giggled and laughed all over the place. That was my biggest, best moment so far.

How do you define success?
Success, I think, is a combination between a happy work [situation] and a happy life. As vague as that is, that’s what it means to me, at this point right now in my life.

Press/Video: Eugene And Daniel Levy On The Inclusivity And Love At The Heart Of ‘Schitt’s Creek’

(Annie is also in this interview.)

Four seasons ago, Pop TV comedy series Schitt’s Creek began with a compelling fish-out-of-water premise. Following the wealthy Rose family and their life of excess, the series really got cooking when they all went broke, resulting in them moving to a run-down town they once bought as a joke.

The Contenders Emmys 2018
While this conceit is essential to the series, for co-creator and star Daniel Levy, the show has always been about love. “It’s been about leaving them in this town to realize what is truly important. That was really the thrust of the show from the very beginning, and fortunately, you can tell so many stories about love,” he told TVLine’s Michael Ausiello last month during the comedy’s panel at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys. “It presents itself in so many different iterations. That’s been what the joy has been for us, to continue to reveal that to these characters.”

Co-creator Eugene Levy, appearing on the panel with his son as well as co-stars Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy, discussed Schitt’s Creek as a place of inclusivity, emblematic of the series’ values.

“Now, the town itself is a community that deals with people for who they are, and not what they are. This is not a black, white or brown show; it’s not about gay or straight; it’s not about city/country; it’s not about male/female,” he said. “People are accepted for who they are, and that’s the good-feeling vibe about Schitt’s Creek.”
