Michaela Jill Murphy (aka Jessie Flower) is a Los Angeles based actor, singer, and writer often known for her voice work as “Toph Beifong” in Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender.
She began her career at 5 years old in a community theater production of Oliver, then transitioned into professional acting through commercial work and soon found voiceover: her first VO job was additional voices in Finding Nemo!

Michaela continued acting professionally until the age of 13, then took a break after Avatar to focus on school thinking she wanted to become a heart surgeon. She attended Yale University and discovered a love for screenwriting. She graduated with a dual degree in Theater and Film, then moved to New York where she starred in the original play “Under” for the NY Fringe festival, the lead in the short film “The Letter”, as well as sang with the cover band Faces for Radio and interned for the travel bag company Dagne Dover.
She moved back to Los Angeles during the pandemic, and now you can catch her as the English dubs for “Nasse” in Platinum End and “Harika” in Boruto. Stay tuned for a primary character in a video game that should be released soon…
