Elijah Wood has shown sad recording—‘Happy Feet 2’ without Brittany Murphy. The ‘Lord of the Rings’ star reprized his role in connection with animated penguin Mumble in the movie, but he was upset over the late actress – who died suddenly in November 2009 aged 32, and could not be there to voice Gloria again.
The 30-year-old, however, thought her replacement Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, was “great” in the film, especially considering it was her first ever movie role.
“I worked very closely with Brittany Murphy on the first movie. We had all time to accept his death and emotionally deal with it when we started recording this film, but it was very sad. He added: “I think it was a bit odd that the first day, but the energy in pink is the new character was concentrated.
We did not think of them in the way it would be difficult to come, we went there and worked with this new person, which was great.
She had never played a character in a movie, it was fun to see them go through this for the first time and enjoy.
