One of the biggest surprises of Wondercon's Tron Legacy viral marketing event was the appearance of Cindy Morgan as Lora Bradley, the wife of Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner). Wasn't Lora supposed to be dead? We asked Morgan what's up.
Lora and Alan were still together at the end of the original Tron, but the video game Tron 2.0 mentioned that Lora had died after the couple had had a child together. "That's what I hear," Morgan laughs. "The reports of my death were greatly exaggerated."
So if Lora's not dead, what did happen to her? Pretty much all Morgan knows is what she was handed on a couple of scraps of paper when she showed up for the event at Wondercon: She's married to Alan, and they're both still working at Encom. She said it was great to be reunited with Boxleitner — who co-starred with her in the show Bring 'Em Back Alive soon after they were in Tron together. She teased Boxleitner about his iphone (which he brandished on stage) and asked if he actually knew how to use it, to which Boxleitner mock-gruffly insisted he did.
Morgan hasn't filmed any scenes for the actual Tron Legacy — but she says it's still possible the producers will work her in somehow. In any case, at least it's now officially part of the movie's continuity that her character is alive and married to Boxleitner's.
