Morgan was born in Armagh, Northern Ireland. He studied acting at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) in Glasgow, from where he graduated in 2007. He went on to perform on stage in ‘Vernon God Little’ (2007) and ‘All About My Mother’ (2007). In 2011 Morgan played characters in ‘Island’ and the award-winning Irish film, ‘Parked’.
