Rising star Colin Morgan
has had a phenomenal young career and has landed the lead role in Merlin
. The young actor was still in drama school when he was cast by director Rufus Norris to make his professional debut in the title role of last year's premiere page-to-stage adaptation of DBC Pierre's Booker Prize winner Vernon God Little at the Young Vic, London.
Morgan immediately followed that up with another adaptation across the road at the Old Vic, in Samuel Adamson's screen crossover of Pedro Almodovar's Oscar-winning Spanish film All About My Mother in which he played Esteban, son to Lesley Manville, in a cast that also featured Dame Diana Rigg and Mark Gatiss.
Off-stage, Morgan managed to find the time for filming an episode of Doctor Who and to appear on TV in Catherine Tate's Christmas Special.
