Steeped in the stage, now a steaming cup of microphone
Morgan was raised a classically trained actor. She and her best friend (now independent journalist and NPR correspondent) Emily Chen-Newton debuted as Aslan’s helpers in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in 1998 at Walden Theatre (Jennifer Lawrence went there!). In a truly baffling series of events, Morgan was cast a “woman of the night” Mrs. Slammekin in The Beggar’s Opera at age 12. Cheeks rouged with actual lipstick, it was somehow then that Morgan decided this is what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. You may unpack that at your own leisure.
Flash forward to watching Looney Tunes many years later, her purpose turned entirely to voice-over and getting into cartoons (perhaps Bugs Bunny in lipstick was the connector here). Morgan spent a year at DePaul University’s Theatre School in Chicago, where she happened to find Pat Fraley in her Voice & Speech class one day. Pat was the first person to guide her voice-over career. Eventually, she moved to Los Angeles and has been pursuing VO since (save for a one-year stint in Osaka, Japan. As you do).
Ever the curious sort, Morgan tends to have fingers in many pies (she has a +4 to DEX). She’s been a juggling clown, a background actor on many productions, produced a puppet version of Hamlet, performed with the tinikling team (performing a traditional Filipino dance), started her own loop group, and has even directed Robert Picardo. In addition to performing, she was the production coordinator for Carcerem The Series, a coordinator for Amazon subtitle production, and works regularly as a script adapter/ADR writer to produce English dub scripts. Morgan loves to rock climb and be outside. She’s also a proud member of the Los Robles Master Chorale.
