Morgan marked her feature film debut in the iconic 1980 sports comedy “Caddyshack,” sharing the screen with comedy legends Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Michael O’Keefe.

“Tron” was notable for its extensive use of computer-generated imagery (CGI), earning two Academy Award nominations and gaining a cult following.

Morgan’s versatile career extended beyond these iconic films.

She appeared in TV series such as “The Love Boat,” “CHiPs,” “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Harry and the Hendersons,” “Hawaiian Heat,” “She’s the Sheriff,” “Amazing Stories,” “The Highwayman,” “Manusco, FBI,” and “Under Suspicion,” among others.
