After more than forty years in show business, actress Shelley Morrison, who plays the wisecracking Rosario on the hit NBC series "Will and Grace," has more than her share of stories. This veteran of the big and small screen has also augmented her professional life with ties to her family and community that have made her a compelling person as well as a skilled performer. A tireless worker for charity (L.A. Shanti, one of the city’s oldest charities for AIDS/HIV; and A.N.G.E.L.S Day, which helps senior citizens and their animal companions), and takes pride in portraying an older, Hispanic woman who is tough, smart and can hold her own. Morrison has received a commendation from the city for her effort to preserve her neighborhood during the 1992 riots that destroyed a shopping mall just behind her home and joined other "celebrity knitters" including Elizabeth Taylor and "Will and Grace" co-star Debra Messing, to knit blankets for a sale benefiting the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund. Recently, she led the inspirational and uplifting "Sea of Pink" survivors' ceremony to kick off the Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure" in Los Angeles. She has survived two bouts with cancer, and retains a spirit of peace and optimism that is as infectious as her winning smile..
