TRON, the Disney cult classic that paved the way for modern CGI films such as Avatar, turns 30 this year. The first ever computer generated film, with political undertones was not the initial commercial success in theaters, but has taken a life of its own in the home video market.

No one has enjoyed the resurgence of interest in this brand more-so than University of Northern Illinois alumna Cindy Morgan, who played Yori, the program that drove every geek in 1982 to take an MS-DOS class, indirectly driving computer science as one of the top five majors of the post-modern era.

Morgan did not reprise the role of Yori in the 2010 sequel, but thanks to Disney releasing the Blu-Ray boxset, fans constantly ask, “Why were you not in Legacy,” to which Morgan replies, “Ask Disney,” and a Yori Lives campaign, have turned the martyred character into a hero young women can model themselves after.

“I have two rules for anyone who works with me. One, you never say anything bad about Disney and two, there is no whining,” said Morgan at Pop/Con LA leading up to this weeks San Diego Comic Con.

Morgan’s background is broadcasting and did morning drive time for WSDM (now WLUP) running her own boards, making a staggering $135 a week. Over a labor dispute, Morgan quit on the air with while a record still spun. She told the station manager that she would be on a billboard in Hollywood within one year, in eight months, she was posted all over Los Angeles for the 1980 smash hit, Caddyshack, co-starring Chevy Chase, Ted Knight, Bill Murray and the legendary Rodney Dangerfield.

“Caddyshack was a way of life. A window of time between the 1950s where everything you did were going to Hell and the 1990s when AIDS woke up the world. It was a time where decadence. I lived through it and was lucky enough to come out on the other end,” said Morgan.

The resurgence Morgan’s career is a fan based phenomenon. Artists have poured their souls into their work taking to the internet to share their passion with the masses – to which Morgan is grateful and humbled. She confirms that the people have the to power to make their voices heard and are doing so.

“It’s like in Peter Pan where Tinkerbell needs Peter to clap in order to live. The fans clapped their hands and I was alive. I don’t call them fans, they are supporters,” said Morgan.

Morgan is not the only strong willed survivor in the family. Her second cousin is Archbishop of Krakow, Stanislaw Dziwisz, the Adjunct Prefect for the last Pope John II. Her uncle was a part of the tenth mountain division during World War II and in honor of her father who was a marksman during the war will be sky diving with his infantry.

“The only regrets I have is making a weak choice and letting someone else decide for me. If I have a one ray of hope, I’m unstoppable…or so I think,” said Morgan.
