  Profile

Morgan James is an actor, singer and writer.

Born in Swansea and raised in Aberdare, in the heart of the South Wales valleys, Morgan was performing from a young age. His first paid job was at the tender age of 9 in the BBC’s production of the A J Cronin classic The Citadel. He went on to appear in other BBC productions such as The District Nurse and many theatre productions including playing Young Syward in Macbeth at the Grand Theatre, Swansea.

Morgan left Wales to study at Brunel University. He graduated in 1992 and very quickly landed a role in Miriam Segal’s production of Hamlet in the West End. He has gone on to perform in many classical plays including Women Beware Women for the RSC, Richard III and The Witch Of Edmonton. Most recent theatre work has included a very successful run playing the role of Jack in the UK première of the play F***ing Men, written by Tony Award-winning playwright Joe DePietro. The play started out as a four-day reading and turned into a seven month run at the Kings Head Theatre and the Arts Theatre in the West End. Morgan has just finished in the London première of John Osborne’s lost classic, The Devil Inside Him.

Television and Film credits include 50 Ways to Kill your Lover, The Red Zone, the BBC films Wanted and Aberfan-The Untold Story, and donning a head-to-toe PVC gimp outfit to play the villainous No. 7, who is finally over come by Russell Tovey and a cheese plant, in the BBC hit series Being Human.

As a Singer, Morgan had performed for many years in various concerts and shows, including Nine at The Festival Hall, and Flush – The Musical in Edinburgh and London, however his singing break came when he landed the role of lead singer on the World Tour of Riverdance. This was the job that incorporated two of Morgan's biggest passions, singing to a live audience - often up to 30,000 a night - and world travel.

After Riverdance Morgan moved into the London cabaret scene where he has carved out a career performing and producing shows at such famous venues as Pizza on the Park, The 606 Club, Blacks, Lauderdale House, The Basement at Leicester Square and The Battersea Barge.

In the summer of 2011 and 2012 he was delighted to be the guest artist with the Cwmbach Male Voice Choir, who are the local choir of his home town, at the Brecon and Somerton Music festivals.

For the last 4 years Morgan has been using his voice and his writing skills, as the continuity presenter for the BBC satelite channel WATCH.

Morgan has recently signed with Right Recordings and will be releasing his debut album with them in 2016.
