November 2002 Tron-Sector Q&A with Cindy Morgan
November 2002 Q&A with Cindy Morgan
Were there any scenes that you remember doing that didn't end up in the final movie besides the "Love Scene"? - Stuart in Ohio
Yes, now that I think about it. (The film was shot out of sequence, and we were often improvising on the set. And it was ...I can't believe..20 years ago.)
Jeff and I did a lot more running around Livermore Lab where some of the film was shot. There were also more "cut-away" shots in the arcade with Bruce. But most importantly, there was a whole city full of strange creatures that Tron and Yori had to pass through as they ran to the IO Tower. A lot of time and trouble was put into that setup.
Did you keep any props or memorabilia from the Tron set? Also, do you keep in touch with the other cast members at all? - Nicole aka Trace
The only memorabilia I kept were the great memories...and the red marks on my forhead from that darn scullcap.
As far as the other cast members go, Bruce and I went on to do a fun, but short-lived series called "Bring 'Em Back Alive", and we see each other occasionally at publicity events. By the way, his wife, Melissa (Gilbert) is a doll.
Name five people, living or dead, you'd like to have for dinner and what you would serve them. -Todd
What a tough question!! I'll just give you who first comes to mind and hope for the best.
1. Alexander the Great. Who was this guy? What made him tick? I would try to find the popular dishes of his day to make him feel at ease.
2. Jules Verne. Talk about fantasy and an amazing mind. I would serve him sushi. I think he'd get a kick out of it.
3. Nostradamas. Maybe I'd serve him "fast food". Just to show him what the world has become.
4. Sean Connery. Always been in love with this guy. And I'd cook for him myself, mabe making my famous steamed garlic turkey.
5. Morgan le Fay, if there was such a person. I read about her when I was fourteen, and borrowed her name as my last name.
And I would just see what we could conjure up.
When you were in production of the first film of Tron 20 years ago how hard did you find portraying characters of Lora in the real world working at Encom and for Yori Character in the electronic world? - Karl
Not hard at all. Mostly because I just kind of flowed with the idea. I tried to make Lora a version of myself, if I were in her position. Yori was an innocent two-dimesional version of Lora. So we all were one and the same.
Cindy.. After working with black screens and putting on what must have seemed to be strange costumes, what was your impression of TRON when you first saw the movie when it was completed? - Jody Paul Craig (Qix77) Marion, IL
I had no idea what I would see. When I did the "Tonight Show", and Johnny asked me the same question, all I could say was that I was "stunned". At first, like all actors, I was very critical of my performance, but in time I thought the whole thing was pretty cool.
What is your favorite movie, song and book? - Steve
"Journey to the Center of the Earth", "Still the One" by Orleans, and "The Mists of Avalon". OK, I like fantasy.
Did you ever get to throw one of those frisbees? - Dan
No. The boys wouldn't let me play with their toys. I did get to wear a helmet for a while though... and only after a lot of negotiating.
If and when the Tron 2.0 movie does goes into production would you come back in the role as Lora/Yori in the sequel if they would ask you to given the chance? - Karl
I'm waiting for the call. Hey, why don't you email the guys at Disney and drop a word in their respective ea
