Bio

 

Margaret Kelly Murphy is a New York City based actor, singer and real life Mrs. Weasley.

Margaret just finished playing Maddie in the short, Cooking Up a Vlog,directed by the talented Rosalyn Coleman Williams.

She can also be seen as Maria Magnusson, the overwrought bride, in the independent feature film 42 Seconds of Happiness. The film, released in August 2016, won Best Feature Film at the Women Texas Film Festival, Best Ensemble Cast at its New York premiere at the Harlem Film Festival and Best Ensemble Cast at the Princeton Independent Film Festival. In January it won Best Film from the America Continent in India at the Jeff Jarpar International Film Festival! Take away- it really is nice when you win.

On stage Margaret enjoyed performing with The Fine Whines in The Fine Whines: Off the Vine at The Laurie Beechman Theatre and in Barb Carboy's April Mayhem...The Popera. 

When not working you can usually find Margaret in her Hells Kitchen home wrangling her three sons or doing the laundry. And yes, years of singing high C's really do come in handy when the kids misbehave.
