It was fun. All I did was focus on making the person sweat. Look ’em in the eye, do that thing many women know how to do.”

Beyond her contribution to the world of comedy, Morgan showcased her versatility by starring as computer programmer Lora Baines and her alter-ego Yori in the groundbreaking 1982 sci-fi film “Tron.” She maintained her association with the “Tron” universe by lending her voice to the character Ma3a in the video game “Tron 2.0,” released in 2003.

Throughout the ’80s and early ’90s, Morgan graced television screens, making notable appearances on series such as “The Love Boat,” “Vega$,” “Chips,” “Bring ‘Em Back Alive,” “Hawaiian Heat,” and “The Fall Guy.” She demonstrated her acting prowess in TV movies like “The Midnight Hour” (1985), “Solomon’s Universe” (1985), “Dead Weekend” (1995), “Amanda & the Alien” (1995), and “Out There” (1995).

In addition to her work on the small screen, Morgan’s film credits include “Up Yours” (1979), “Galaxis” (1995), and “Open Mic’rs” (2006). Her most recent contribution to the film industry was lending her voice to the character of Mason’s Mother in the 2022 indie film “Face of the Trinity.”
