Comedic actor Annie Murphy won fans' hearts as Alexis Rose in the critically acclaimed television series Schitt's Creek. She later appeared in a dark comedy on AMC titled Kevin Can F--k Himself, about a sitcom wife named Allison who breaks out of the confines of her genre to live a little. Annie plays a married woman on the show, but does she have a husband in real life?
Annie's on-screen life is a little busy these days considering she snagged the role of Joan in Season 6, Episode 1 of Black Mirror and serves as the voice of Chelsea Van Der Zee in the film Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken, which released in theaters on June 30, 2023. Despite this, she still has a personal life, and in it includes her husband, Menno Versteeg.
Here's everything we know about Annie's hubby and what he does for a living.
Annie Murphy has been married to musician Menno Versteeg since 2011.
While the details of their meeting have been kept under wraps, Annie and Menno have been married since 2011. Menno is a Canadian musician and the frontman for two different indie bands: Hollerado and Anyway Gang. In 2019, Menno co-founded Royal Mountain Records and received praise for providing bands signed to the label $1,500 per band for mental healthcare during touring.
With his musical background it will probably come as no surprise that Menno, along with Hollerado bandmate Nick Boyd, collaborated on the Alexis Rose hit, "A Little Bit Alexis," that Annie performed for Season 5 of Schitt's Creek.
In 2013, tragedy struck when a fire burned down the home Annie and Menno were sharing. The pair weren't injured, but they did lose most of their belongings. Annie revealed on The Kelly Clarkson Show, as reported by USA Today, that the fire was before she landed the Schitt's Creek role.
Annie said, "I had, like, $3 in my bank account. I hadn't worked in close to two years, and I had just blown my very first screen test. Like, blown it, blown it, blown it, blown it."
Thankfully, Annie was able to audition for Schitt's Creek two days after her series of unfortunate events, and the rest is history! She is still happily married and living in a house that (hopefully) won't ever catch fire. Annie also secured a star role in the television series Kevin Can F--k Himself and plays Young Ruth in Russian Doll.
Fans were also surprised (and grateful) to see Annie appear as Joan in the "Joan is Awful" episode of Black Mirror, Season 6.
In 'Kevin Can F--k Himself,' Annie Murphy stars in sitcom life turned dark.
Annie's fictional marriage in the dark comedy show Kevin Can F--k Himself is very different from her happily married real life. The show revolves around Allison (Annie Murphy), who plays the almost trope-style role of the doting housewife, to Kevin (Eric Petersen), whose character traits have been described as a "doofus" by Entertainment Weekly.
Allison is depressed, unhappy, and often mistreated in her married life, and she decides to try and snap out of her cookie-cutter life with gruesome fantasies about killing her husband. If Gone Girl has been one of your favorite films for its female revenge fantasy themes, then maybe Kevin Can F--k Himself is for you!
Kevin Can F--k Himself premiered on AMC on June 20, 2021. Russian Doll Season 2 also featured Annie, and premiered April 20, 2022. Both shows are now available for streaming.
