Linda Porter, ‘Superstore’ Actress, Dies at 86

“Superstore” actress Linda Porter died, her representative confirmed on Friday. She was 86.

The actress has portrayed Myrtle on the NBC workplace comedy since its first season. The character was laid off from the Cloud 9 big box store in Season 3, but continued to recur throughout much of Season 4 as well, most recently in the season finale earlier this year.

“Linda wasn’t just hilarious, she was incredibly sweet, energetic and enthusiastic. Working with her brightened everyone’s day,”executive producers Jonathan Green and Gabe Miller said in a statement. “We’re lucky to have been a small part of her long career. The ‘Superstore’ family won’t be the same without her.”

“Here’s hoping the angels don’t call cut right away because your best stuff always came at the end,” her co-star Ben Feldman wrote on Twitter on Friday. “We’ll miss you Linda Porter.”
