Jenn was featured as part of a LA Times article featuring four actors who left big impressions with small roles. Read the part about Jenn below, and be sure to check out the other three actors as well!

Jenn Murray has been acting for seven years, and her role in “Brooklyn” is smaller than many she’s had, but she didn’t mind. Colm Tóibín’s novel of the same name is a favorite. Like the protagonist, Eilis, who journeyed from Ireland to America, Murray herself moved from Northern Ireland to London to act but has always wanted to come to America to work on Hollywood movies. “It’s what dreams are made of.”

Dolores has come fresh off the boat to the same boarding house as Eilis (Saoirse Ronan). Dolores doesn’t fit in with the other girls. She’s poor, she’s naïve, she doesn’t know how to put on makeup, and she announces to anyone who will listen — and nobody will — that she wants to find a man to take care of her.

“I loved her honesty,” Murray says. “I felt like she represented so many women that were either sent to America or went for a dream. She was strong. Even though there’s so little on the page, I really resonated with her — someone who knew what she wanted and was very open about it.”

Turns out, the tiny part helped her land a key role in the big Harry Potter spinoff trilogy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Casting director Fiona Weir worked on both films and championed Murray for “Beasts.” Dolores would be proud.

To say it was a dream come true when Jenn Murray was invited to audition for a role in the film adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s Brooklyn is a gross understatement. “Colm Tóibín is one of my favourite writers,” she says. “Brooklyn was a book that my father gave me when I moved to London and it became like a bible. The story of a woman going off on her own and trying to make her life gave me such security and comfort.”
