Morgan has an athlete’s build and the poise of a fine actor.Add to this a sense of restraint and otherworldliness and you can see why Prospero views him with a touch of unease." Morgan won Best Featured Actor in a New Production of a Play in the 2013 Broadway World West End Awards for his performance.

He will also play the role of Lord Alfred "Bosie" Douglas in the Oscar Wilde biopic The Happy Prince (2017).

Next, he will be portraying the central role of the Irish revolutionary mastermind Seán Mac Diarmada in the Easter Rising centenary commemoration film The Rising 1916 (2017).

He didn't make it, but was quoted as saying, "It's not the end of the world.

I'm going to try and make it on stage one day." Determined, he went on to study in Belfast.

Fortunately, Morgan has said he "found a way to get involved in drama in any way I could.

I joined the local amateur dramatic society, and I still have such fond memories of those times." His inclination to perform was evident from an early age — he was only five years old when he made his stage debut, appearing in the chorus in a production of Cinderella, and then Peter Pan, among other amateur stage productions during his childhood.

And that’s all it takes sometimes, I think, just one person to believe in you." Mc Gee gave Morgan the encouragement he needed to attempt a career as a professional actor.

In 1997, at the age of eleven, Morgan began studies at Integrated College Dungannon, winning the 'Denis Rooney Associates Cup' for best overall student in Year 10.

The school described him as a keen musician and budding actor; his drama teacher James Mc Coy said that Morgan "participated wholeheartedly in every Drama class, concert and production that the college was showcasing." In September 2002, a 16-year-old Morgan auditioned alongside 100 other young performers at Belfast's Waterfront Hall for the You're A Star RTÉ One programme which was in search of star quality performers.

The winner was to receive a record contract and also represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest.

While he attended Saints and Scholars Integrated Primary School, Morgan's teacher Harry Mc Gee became a tremendous inspiration to him; according to Morgan, "[Mc Gee] would stay behind after class each day and he'd pull out a poem and he'd say, 'Let’s work on this,' and we'd just do it.
