Brittany could sing like it’s nobody’s business, and I watch things like [how] they do the movie Bad now. I hear about that [and I know] Brittany would kill this stuff right now. You know, [projects like] West Side Storyall that sort of thing.”

Meyer, who played Travis Birkenstock in 1995 ignorant, added: “The [tough part] is, like we all don’t get to see the incredible work she went on to do, which sucks.

Brit lots are missing today.

During Sunday’s panel, Meyer — who was joined by costars Alice Silverstone, Stacey Dash And Eliza Donovan – revealed that he had known Murphy “forever” prior to their Ignorant audition.

“So Brit and I played boyfriend and girlfriend in a few things [before Clueless],” the Ghosts of friends from the past actor recalled at the convention, which was held at the Hartford Convention Center in Connecticut. “I was very close to someone who played her big sister on a sitcom and I didn’t have a job, so I was on set a lot. [and] so I played Brittany’s boyfriend there. We were already tight [when we got the Clueless roles].”

He added, “When I auditioned, it was fun because every time you audition with someone you know, you’re like, ‘One box, I can control it: comfortably.'”
