Leikferill Morrison spannaði um fimm áratugi, en hún er þó þekktust fyrir hlutverk sitt sem húshjálpin Rosario Salazar frá El Salvador í Will og Grace.
Persónan var upphaflega aðeins skrifuð inn fyrir einn þátt en Salazar varð svo vinsæl að hún var á endanum í alls 68 þáttum.

Shelley was a beautiful soul & a wonderful actor. Her work as Rosario, season after season, was as nuanced and real as it was hysterical. She will be missed by everyone at #WillandGrace, she’s a huge part of it. Sending so much love to Walter and Shelley’s whole family. #Rosariohttps://t.co/C1vkDTU6Qk
