One Woman Becomes Nine People

Monday, March 8, 2010 18:16 GMT

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being nine people is tough for one person.

In her web series Amnesia And Attempted Murder, actress Jill Donnelly takes on the role of nine very different people all trying to get information from one amnesia patient in what she calls an “almost murder mystery.”

Though she never dons a fat suit a la Eddie Murphy in the multi-character flick The Nutty Professor, she does step into each character using costumes, different voices, and by making each alter-ego as “weird” and “creepy” as possible.

Despite maintaining each persona very separate from her own personality, Donnelly admits that having all those people running around in her head gets “a little crazy” and that they sometimes “pop out in real life.”

It’s nothing she’s not used to though.

She explains, “I’m always doing weird characters. I always have a lot of people in my head. It’s how I walk around.”
