Murray’s first taste of stardom was miming the lyrics in the 1996 original video of Stretch & Vern’s dance track “I’m Alive”. Some of her early television appearances included minor guest roles in BBC One‘s Casualty, The Bill, Love Soup, and ShakespeaRe-Told: The Taming of the Shrew.
Murray starred as Stacie Monroe in Hustle from series 1 until series 4. In one episode of Hustle, Murray so impressed her co-star Robert Vaughn with her modeling of a Wonder Woman costume that, according to several online sources, he showed it to studio executives in Hollywood; on the strength of this, Murray was invited to audition for the part of Wonder Woman in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.
Relocating to Los Angeles, California, Murray starred in Dexter as Lila Tourney (referred to as “Miss pardon my tits” by Dexter’s sister, Debra Morgan) Dexter Morgan‘s Narcotics Anonymous sponsor and the main antagonist in Season 2. Dexter spends one night in a hotel with Lila without any sexual contact just a brief kiss, leading to his breakup with his girlfriend Rita Bennett, but he soon realizes that Lila is in fact a sociopath who hangs out in support groups in an attempt to vicariously experience emotions in a safe environment by closely observing them in recovering addicts. She immediately sees through Dexter’s “mask” and becomes obsessed with him, believing him to be her soulmate.
Murray was cast in another CW show, The Beautiful Life: TBL, as a wardrobe stylist, but the show was canceled before she was able to appear.
Murray finished shooting Possessions in 2010, and is currently shooting The Rapture. She starred in the 2010 horror film Devil’s Playground, directed by Mark McQueen, and then appeared as Helena G. Wells on the Syfy series Warehouse 13. Murray’s portrayal of Helena G. Wells received critical praise. Her portrayal was described as “saucy”, “superb”, as able to “anchor a series”, and “endlessly fascinating”. Her absence as the villainess in the season 3 Christmas episode, “The Greatest Gift”, was bemoaned with the lamentation “she would have done it better”. Murray was nominated for a 2012 Portal Award for her portrayal of Helena G. Wells on Warehouse 13.
