Mini Bio (1)
Despite remaining on the periphery of character stardom all these years, New York-born character actress Shelley Morrison has had a long and varied career since the early 1960s. Of Sephardic Jewish descent, Morrison played a wide variety of ethnicities, mostly Hispanic. She started out on TV in such popular shows as The Farmer's Daughter (1963) and Laredo (1965), making a career out of an assortment of ethnic roles. In films, she played Indian women in Three Guns for Texas (1968) and Mackenna's Gold (1969), as well as minor Latina roles in Castle of Evil (1966), Man and Boy (1971) and Troop Beverly Hills (1989).
While most people remember her with fondness as the adorably shy but spirited Sister Sixto, who had problems mastering English in The Flying Nun (1967), today's audiences have been relishing her turnabout performance as the vinegary Salvadoran housekeeper Rosario, the only character who doesn't mince words with her mean-spirited wealthy boss, Karen Walker (played by Megan Mullally) on Will & Grace (1998). Morrison's acting roots were firmly entrenched in the theater, having performed, produced and directed hosts of plays over the years in Los Angeles, New York, and abroad. She battled breast and lung cancer, apparently into full remission, before her death in 2019 at age 83 from heart failure.
