Michaela Jill Murphy

Voice Actor Guest

Michaela Jill Murphy is an American voice, film, and stage actress. She is known as the voice of Toph Beifong in the animated Nickelodeon television series “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. Michaela’s voice has been featured in several animated movies, including Meet the Robinsons, Over the Hedge, The Ant Bully, Finding Nemo, The Emperor’s New School, and Brother Bear 2.

Michaela is Midwestern born, West Coast raised, and East Coast educated. In her early years, she sang before she spoke, was enamored with movies and extra high heels, and quickly became obsessed with Britney Spears, leading to impromptu “Oops! …I Did It Again” performances for strangers.

Then one day, her friend was in a commercial. She turned to her mom and said, “Hey, I want to be in a commercial.” And there you have it. From commercials, print, and voiceover, to theater, film, and much more, Michaela loves to perform…whether it be on stage, on screen, or in a sound booth.

She began acting as an orphan in the musical “Oliver” at 5 years old, after moving to Los Angeles from Southern Indiana with her mother. In high school, she took a brief professional pause and started performing recreationally, thinking she was going to go to college to eventually become a cardio-vascular surgeon (she still has mad math skills).

While at Yale University, she quickly realized she needed to be creative in order to function, and switched to a dual B.A. in Theater and Film Studies with concentrations in writing. After residing in her boyfriend’s parent’s basement in Virginia during Covid, she moved back to Los Angeles and returned to her voice over roots and recently purchased the latest version of Final Draft to start writing again. She hopes to get back onto stage, screen, and page very soon, and thanks you for stopping by!
