‘Schitt’s Creek’: Annie Murphy Auditioned for Another Role in the Cast


It’s fair to say that Annie Murphy shined as Alexis Rose in the Schitt’s Creek cast. Despite Alexis starting off the series as a spoiled socialite, Murphy was always able to imbue her character with charm and heart. Even when she wasn’t the best person, there was something intrinsically lovable about the blonde. Because Murphy did such a good job playing Alexis, it’s hard to imagine her portraying any other role in the cast. But Murphy actually auditioned for another character in Schitt’s Creek.

Annie Murphy was thrilled when she got her first audition for ‘Schitt’s Creek’

When Murphy first got her audition for Schitt’s Creek, it was, in fact, for Alexis. A Canadian, she easily recognized the names Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, who were already attached to the project. She grew up watching films with the veteran actors and considered them her comedic icons of her. So, she jumped at the chance to audition for a place in the Schitt’s Creek cast.
