Actress Annie Murphy talks Schitt’s Creek Season 3

Monday, 09 January 2017 21:39

Senior Arts Editor Mark Wigmore speaks to actress Annie Murphy about the third season of CBC’s Schitt’s Creek, and the creation of her character, Alexis Rose.

Annie Murphy is the talented actress behind a character that has captured the lighter side of the millennial zeitgeist; the charming narcissism of Alexis Rose on CBC’s Schitt’s Creek.

The fish out of water comedy enters its third season on Tuesday with a season premiere airing at 9 p.m. The show follows the former billionaire Rose family, forced to live in the relatively rudimentary confines of the country berg they bought as a joke in wealthier times. Creek stars comic legends Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara as mom and pop Rose, Dan Levy as metrosexual son David, & Annie Murphy as brattie selfie enthusiast, Alexis.

Murphy has turned out to be a startling talent on Schitt’s Creek, likely the actress with the most to prove given the star caliber of her cast. She grew up a fan of Eugene and Catherine on SCTV, but truly understood their comedic prowess in the films of Christopher Guest.

Schitt’s Creek enters its third season with much to be proud of; s tone establishing first season, character and comedy development in season two, and a successful run on the US network, Pop. Billboards for the show are currently sprinkled up and down the sunset strip in LA. The latest episodes are set to cement the idea that the Rose family is definitely stuck in Schitt’s Creek.
