Brittany Murphy died this morning after going into cardiac arrest at the age of 32. Although not a name everyone might recognize, she was certainly an actress most people knew. Despite appearing in Clueless and 8 Mile, Brittany Murphy is best known for her time as the lovably ditsy live-in niece of Hank Hill, Luanne Platter, on Fox's King of the Hill.
Without Brittany's unique voice and perspective on Luanne's life situation, she might have only been a stereotype that no one would have ever noticed, but instead was transformed into one of the most popular characters on the show, often seeming more real than and live-action character on a sitcom.
Partially because of the love of Luanne, King of the Hill ran an astounding 13 seasons, with Luanne appearing in 231 episodes, all voiced by the same talented actress. For more movies and shows Brittany appeared in, check the link below.
Her skills, voice and personality will be missed, both in the live action and animated business.
