Cindy Morgan, 'Tron' and 'Caddyshack' Star, Dies at 69
Cindy Morgan, the actor best known for playing Lacey Underall
in "Caddyshack" and Lora/Yori in Disney's original "Tron" film,
has died. She was 69.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's office in Florida confirmed the
news to the Los Angeles Times, saying Morgan died of natural
causes. Officials were not able to specify when she died.

Morgan gained notoriety for her performance as blonde bombshell
Lacey in the 1980 sports comedy "Caddyshack," starring Bill
Murray, Chevy Chase and Rodney Dangerfield.

"'Caddyshack' was my first film and I'll say that the end
product was so completely different, it was originally about the
caddies," Morgan said in a 2012 interview. "So at first, I had
nothing to lose to audition. 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."

After guesting on such series as "The Love Boat," "Vega$" and
"Chips," she starred in 1982's "Tron" as computer programmer
Lora Baines and Yori, her alter-ego in the sci-fi film's
computer-generated world. She returned to the "Tron" world as the
voice of Ma3a in the video game "Tron 2.0," which was released in

Morgan appeared on multiple television series throughout the '80s
and early '90s, including "Bring 'Em Back Alive," "Hawaiian Heat,"
"Masquerade," "The Fall Guy," "Tough Cookies," "Beverly Hills
Buntz," "Falcon Crest," "Matlock," "Mancuso, FBI," "Hunter" and
"The Larry Sanders Show." She also worked on TV movies such as
"The Midnight' Hour" (1985), "Solomon's Universe" (1985), "Dead
Weekend" (1995), "Amanda & the Alien" (1995) and "Out There"

Along with "Caddyshack" and "Tron," Morgan's film credits include
1979's "Up Yours," 1995's "Galaxis" and 2006's "Open Mic'rs." Her
most recent role was voicing Mason's Mother in the 2022 indie film
"Face of the Trinity."
