DONNA MURPHY (Judy Braddock), certainly one of the greatest Broadway stars of her generation, has recently added a number of high-profile motion pictures to her many awards and accomplishments. In addition to her role as Rosalie Octavius in SPIDER-MAN 2, she was seen in Oliver Stone's WORLD TRADE CENTER, and in Darren Aronofsky's THE FOUNTAIN (opposite Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz). Her other films include THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR, CENTER STAGE, STAR TREK: INSURRECTION, THE ASTRONAUT'S WIFE and JADE. Murphy won the first of her two Tony Awards for Best Actress in a Musical, along with Drama Desk and Drama League Awards for portrayal of "Fosca” in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's "Passion,” which was televised on "American Playhouse.” She was awarded her second Tony and Drama League Awards as well as Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for her performance as "Anna Leonowans” in the highly praised revival of "The King and I.” Murphy returned triumphantly to Broadway in 2004 as "Ruth Sherwood” in the revival of Leonard Bernstein and Comden and Green's "Wonderful Town,” where she received the most rapturous reviews of her career and a Tony nomination as Best Actress. Since making her professional debut in Neil Simon's Broadway hit "They're Playing Our Song,” Murphy has appeared on and off Broadway and in regional productions of Rupert Holmes' Tony Award winning "The Mystery of Edwin Drood” (title role), "Twelve Dreams,” "Hello Again” (Drama Desk nominations), "Song of Singapore” (Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle nominations), "Privates on Parade,” "Miss Julie,” "Pal Joey,” and the title character in Tony Kushner's production of "Helen” (Drama League Award), among others. Murphy's first television film, HBO's SOMEONE HAD TO BE BENNY, earned her a Cable Ace Award as Best Actress in a Drama Special or Series, as well as a Daytime Emmy. Her other TV roles include HACK (2002 Christian Film and Television Excellence Award nomination), HAT ABOUT JOAN (opposite Joan Cusack), THE LAST DEBATE (opposite James Garner), THE DAY LINCOLN WAS SHOT (as Mary Todd Lincoln), MURDER ONE, LEONARD BERNSTEIN'S NEW YORK AND ABIGAIL ADAMS IN LIBERTY! and THE KENNEDY CENTER HONORS (2000 & 2002).
