Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, Morrill attended the Carnegie Institute before making her stage debut opposite John Carradine in Julius Caesar. She made her Broadway debut in The Relapse with Cyril Ritchard.
Morrill's first television performance was on the Outer Limits episode "The Man with the Power" in 1963. She went on to guest star on numerous television series and television movies. Morrill had recurring roles on Family, Bret Maverick, Santa Barbara, and Newhart.
In addition to guest-starring roles, she also co-starred in two short-lived series: In the Beginning (TV series) starring McLean Stevenson, and Baby Makes Five starring Peter Scolari.
