Life Story of Donna Murphy

A Tony and Emmy Award winner, Donna Murphy has forged a career of exceptional diversity, impressing both audiences and critics with her depth and skill.

Donna Murphy in the recording studio with Glenn Slater and Alan Menken.

She was appearing on Broadway in "Wonderful Town" (Tony nominated, Best Actress) at the time Spider-Man 2 (2004) was in post-production. She had been having some severe vocal difficulties during the run of the show and she missed a few performances early on. Spidey 2 Production brought her into a recording studio to do some looping for the big out-of-control explosive scene where her character is killed. One of the things they needed Donna to do was a ten- to 15-second scream. So she called her stepdaughter (also an actress) and said, "Come down here and do my screaming for me." When you watch the film and see her screaming her head off, it isn't her.
