"Colin was absolutely awesome. He is a super talented actor and a very cool guy ... He also has the best Irish Accent."
~ Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan of Colin Morgan on his twitter
Colin Morgan is a Northern Irish actor who portrays the character of the Duke of Blackwood in "The Huntsman: Winter's War". This is Colin's first Hollywood blockbuster.
After studying at the Belfast Institute of Further and Higher Education in 2004, he attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, from which he graduated in 2007.
Colin is most famously known for playing the titular character in the BBC television series "Merlin" (2008-2012).
ON HIS CHARACTER Edit
COLIN: 'He’s the lover of Freya, played by Emily Blunt, and essentially the catalyst for her powers coming to fruition in the way they do - unlocking another side of her that changes her forever.’
What was it like to work on such a big blockbuster movie?
COLIN: ‘If ever there was a film to experience what the "real deal" is all about, it felt right that this was the one. The producer Joe Roth is doing such strong work on these epic adventure movies and I especially enjoyed working with the director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, he's got such a great energy and positivity.’
In 2013, Colin Morgan won the National Television Award for Outstanding Drama Performance (Male) for his work in "Merlin". He won the SFX Award for Best Actor in 2013 also for "Merlin". He was nominated in 2012 and 2011 for Best Actor by the TV Quick Awards. He was nominated 3 times at the Monte-Carlo TV Festival for a Golden Nymph Award in the category Outstanding Actor - Drama Series (2009, 2010, 2011).
