MORGAN LOFTING worked throughout the 70's and 80's performing various media voice-overs including cartoons, narrations, and commercials. On-camera there were a few good old TV series and Movies of the Week-- plus plays in New York and L A. and several regrettable movies, but let's not go there.
In '89 Morgan returned to college to finish her Bachelor's Degree, stayed for an MA in history and was on her way to a doctorate when she took another swerve...so much to learn, so little time.
Now Morgan has found a new love, "bartending with books" as she calls it at her city library -- a job that leaves her plenty of time to travel, do yoga and read, read and read.
For many, Morgan will always be the voice of the Baroness from the G. I. Joe: A Real American Hero animated series, as well as Firestar and Moonracer on the classic Transformers animated series. Even her son and grandkids are fans! But, sadly, Morgan never got to savage the universe as a Decepticon, until this years Botcon's script reading that is!
She has issued fair warning... Watch out Optimus Prime!
