Superstore: Linda Porter passes away at 86

After a long fight with cancer, actress Linda Porter has passed away. Well-known for bringing to life Myrtle Vartanian in the NBC comedy Superstore, Porter was 86 at the time of her death.

After the news broke, several members of the Superstore crew hit up social media to give their condolences. Leading the way were actors Ben Feldman and Danny Gura who put out simple tweets.

Superstore writers Vanessa Ramos and Gabe Miller followed suit with their own tweets sharing their views on her in which they called her a “delight” and “energetic”.

Porter wasn’t new to acting by any stretch of the imagination. She got her start in the acting biz back in 1988 at the age of 54 to 55. That year, she made her debut in Beauty and the Beast. Following that, she appeared in big series such as Murder, She Wrote, Gilmore Girls, Fraiser, Roseanne, My Name is Earl, Superstore, Twin Peaks, and more. In the end, she has racked up a total of 74 roles, according to IMDb.
