The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office in Florida confirmed the sad news to the Los Angeles Times, explaining Morgan had died of natural causes.

Morgan’s time of death wasn’t specified by officials.

She was born on September 29, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois, United States.

While she gained fame with her performance in ‘Caddyshack’, acting alongside Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, and Rodney Dangerfield, it was her role in ‘Tron’ that she will be most remembered for by sci-fi fans.

The 1982 film starred Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn trying to escape a digital world. Cindy Morgan’s character, Lora/Yori, assists him against the Master Control Program (David Warner).

She would not return for the 2010 reboot film ‘Tron: Legacy’ but did voice the character of Ma3a in the 2003 video game ‘Tron 2.0’.

Speaking to ComicBook.com on whether she would appear in the upcoming ‘Tron: Ares’ with Jared Leto, Morgan said “I’m always available because they kept it alive, so I show up and say, ‘Thank you,'” Morgan said.

“We just walked in there and it was like, ‘Welcome to our home. Look at what we did. Remember that movie you did? We just put this all together. What do you think?’”

Morgan has a total of 37 acting credits, such as ‘The Larry Sanders Show,’ ‘Matlock,’ Dead Weekend,’ ‘Amanda & the Alien,’ and ‘Galaxis’.

Her most recent role was voicing Mason’s Mother in the indie film ‘Face of the Trinity’ which was released in 2022.
