Actorobit: Brittany Murphy

Brittany Murphy has died, at the age of 32, according to TMZ. The gossip site reports she suffered a fatal heart attack earlier today.

Although most of her work was as an actor, Murphy did have two excursions into making music. As part of her day job, she covered Queen and Earth Wind And Fire for the soundtrack of anthropomorphised penguin dances. More interestingly, she supplied vocals for a track on Paul Oakenfold's 2006 album A Lively Mind. Faster Kill Pussycat made number seven in the UK charts.
