The Actress was 69

Actress Cindy Morgan passed away at the age of 69, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. At this time, details are scarce about her cause of death. 

Morgan’s Legacy

During her career, Morgan had 37 acting credits across her various works in film and television. The role that helped launch her career was the 1980 comedy Caddyshack, where she co-starred alongside Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Brian Doyle-Murray. The film went on to be a box office hit, grossing $60 million and establishing itself as a classic. 

Morgan is also known for her role in the beloved 1982 Disney film Tron. In the film, she portrays two roles, the human character Dr. Lora Baines and Yori, the program in the video game developed by Baines. While the film wasn’t a smash hit at the box office, it was still able to scrounge together $50 million against its $17 million budget. However, the film cemented itself as a science fiction classic, being praised in 1982 for its groundbreaking visual effects work. A sequel titled Tron: Legacy was released in 2010, with a third film titled Tron: Ares currently in development.
