He’s just a baby. He has a short acting resume with just a few costume drama credits. But he’s pretty, and sometimes, that’s all we ask for on another Monday morning here in quarantine. So we give you Northern Irish vegetarian actor Colin Morgan as a little distraction today.
Merlin in Merlin (2008-2012)
OK, it’s not historical, it’s that vaguely medieval fantasy thing, & I always get it confused with Camelot (2011). But most folks know Colin Morgan from this, as it was his first big starring role.
Jimmy Minor in Quirke (2014)
A small role in this 1950s crime drama.
Ariel in The Tempest (2014)
This is a filmed version of a Globe Theatre production, where Colin Morgan plays the magical sprite, & I am loving this costume.
Victor Richardson in Testament of Youth (2014)
Surprised none of us got around to reviewing this WWI drama from the Beeb, since it also features Kit Harrington, Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Emily Watson, & Miranda Richardson.
Frank Shea in Legend (2014)
Also surprised that Kendra hasn’t reviewed this flick about 1960s twin gangsters both played by her boyfriend Tom Hardy. He & Colin Morgan both look slick in their mod wardrobes.
Nathan Appleby in The Living and the Dead (2016)
OK, this Victorian horror story is a little cheesy, but…
VELVET. I AM DONE.
Chris Keller in National Theatre Live: All My Sons (2019)
Another filmed theater performance, this one of Arthur Miller’s 1940s play.
John Armstrong in The Crown, “Bubbikins” (2019)
In the recent season of this series, set in the 1960s, Colin Morgan played a journalist who interviews Princess Alice.
Have you noticed how pretty Colin Morgan is in the few historical costume movie and TV roles he’s done?
