It's a shame never got to reprise her role as Lora/Yori in Tron: Legacy (aside from the tie-in Flynn Lives short). I was hoping she'd come back for a third film in the series (not that Tron: Ares gave me much hope, since everything about it made it sound like an unrelated spin-off).

RIP Lacey Underall

More info in this article... Looks like she passed away but wasn't found for days or longer.

Actress Cindy Morgan is among the cast members of this vintage 1979 Irish Spring commercial, where life in pastoral Ireland is evidently all about wrestlin', carrying pocket knives, and endorsing bars of soap.

Notes from "Caddyshack: The Making of a Hollywood Cinderella Story" by Chris Nashawaty stated that Cindy Morgan was "working on a book about her experiences during the making of Caddyshack" but who knows if that will see the light of day now.



Cindy Morgan and Jayne Kennedy as Mitchell and Woods, a potential CHiPs spin-off series.

No offense to the memory of the recently departed lady, but that sounds like the worst thing ever.

Thatís sad to hear. Random, but she added me as a friend on Facebook after I wrote a review of Tron.

Saw her at a convention this past year signing autographs. She had gained some weight, but otherwise seemed to be in decent health for someone her age.

Re: Cindy Morgan, star of Tron and Caddyshack, dies at 69

I got an autograph from her at a convention about a decade ago. I told her I hoped to see her back for Tron 3. She told me to contact Disney to let them know and directed me to a "Yori Lives" Facebook fan group. Sad that it won't happen now.

After she signed my poster, I asked if I could get a quick picture with her. She said "You can take a picture of me holding your item." I was confused and said "Oh.. so I can't be in the picture with you?" This was before charging fans for table selfies was common at conventions. I hadn't met a guest at that point who was doing it. She glanced over at a price sign at the end of the table showing "PHOTO OP WITH YOUR CAMERA - $10". I hesitated for a second, but she stood up and flipped the sign over and said "Okay.. forget about that." and proceeded to pose with me for no extra charge.

I remember she had us take three shots (and was willing to do more) because she wasn't happy with the lighting. She probably thought they'd end up on social media, but I've never posted my con pics online. She looked great regardless. We both must have been distracted by all this, because it was after I got home and counted my cash that I realized I must have walked off without paying her for the autograph.

She signed a Tron photo (I posted it in the autograph thread in Otter) at SDCC back in the 90s. My son came by and she was nice enough to get a photo with him.

This thread has been an education. I didn't think anyone knew who she was or gave two licks about her.

Lots of Caddyshack and Tron fans here so she is well known. RIP.

Just read the Nashawaty Caddyshack book and rewatched the movie a few weeks ago. I bet her memoir would have been pretty fun. RIP. That's way too young and a sad way to go.

You obviously didn't get the memo.

I was born to love her. I was born to lick her face. I was born to rub her, but she was born to rub me first.

Anyway, RIP.

I don't know what the expiration date is on anyone coming up with a fresh take or a never-before-heard anecdote about a movie, but I'm gonna say 40 years is past it.

Wow, that sucks. I love Cindy Morgan. I'm a huge Tron fan, and I love Caddyshack.

Really sad news.

As far as I can tell, she was kind, nice to work with, and cared about her fans. I always though she was great. Peace be with her family.
