Actress Cindy Morgan, who gained fame in the 1980s for her legendary blond bombshell role in the cult classic film “Caddyshack,” has died at the age of 69, officials said.
Morgan was best known for turning heads as golf club floozy Lacey Underall in the iconic 1980 comedy hit alongside legends Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase.
She also starred in the 80’s sci-fi flick “Tron.”
A representative for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Fox News on Saturday that the actress died due to natural causes a “few days ago.”
Morgan’s roommate reportedly called police to their Lake Worth Beach home on Dec. 30, 2023, when she returned from a holiday trip, according to TMZ.
She knocked on the door, got no response and told police she smelled a strong odor coming from inside. Police found Morgan dead in her room with no foul play suspected, TMZ reported.
In addition to playing a country club head’s flirtatious niece in “Caddyshack,” Morgan also played the dual roles of Dr. Lora Baines and computer program Yori in “Tron” beside Jeff Bridges in 1982.
Before she made it to the big screen, the Chicago native graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in communications, according to her IMDB biography.
Morgan delivered news on a local TV station in Rockford and spun records on a radio station before moving to Los Angeles where she starred in TV commercials for Irish Spring.
