Colin Morgan wife and dating history

Colin Morgan is a famous Irish actor best known for his role in The Huntsman: Winter’s War and Benjamin. Unlike many of his fellow actors, he started pursuing acting when he was still five years old. Even though he is pretty famous, Colin is a very private man, especially regarding his personal life and relationship.

He received many prestigious nominations, such as Monte Carlo TV Festival Awards as an Outstanding Actor (Drama). But, is there anything that we know about Colin’s lovers? Or anything about his personal life?

Who is Colin Morgan Wife?

Colin Morgan has a perfect personality, and his fans are curious to know who is the lucky woman to be his wife? He is one of those actors who would keep his love life away from the media.

Morgan is not on any social media and has also never shared his relationship status in public or during interviews.

The One and Only Woman That’s Ever Been Linked to Colin: Katie McGrath

Colin Morgan took his privacy to another level. Not only does he rarely talk about it in his interviews, but he also doesn’t have any presence on social media. The actor doesn’t have Instagram or Facebook, let alone a Twitter account. But, there’s still some information that we can get from him.

He is linked with an actress who played in Jurassic World and Freakdog, Katie McGrath. The two met for the first time on the set of Merlin, for which Colin received some nominations.

For some who aren’t familiar with Katie, she is a big name in the movie industry. She is also an Irish actress, whose performance we can see as Lena Luthor in the superhero series Supergirl, from 2016. Her other prominent works include Dracula, Slasher, The Queen, and many other movies.

Their chemistry on screen was strong until their fans speculated that the two were dating in real life. Katie played Morgana Pendragon in the series, while Colin starred as the young wizard Merlin. They starred as a love interest in the series, and not only did their fans believe that the two were an item in real life, too.

Katie and Colin also looked so close whenever they interviewed for the series together. So, of course, it would be hard not to believe that there was a romance sparked between them.

Colin and Katie Already Married in Secret?

Many sources even stated that Colin and his girlfriend had already moved into a more serious phase in their relationship: they got engaged and soon married in 2016! Some sources even said that they witnessed Katie and Colin go out together to buy a wedding ring. But was this real or just a rumor?

Their pictures also made the rumor become more convincing. Colin and Katie once took a photo for a TV Guide Magazine photoshoot in May 2013, which shows that they were more than “just friends.”

The picture was in a black-and-white effect. It is a collage of four photos becoming one, with Katie putting her arms on Colin’s shoulder many times.

In the photo, Katie was wearing a simple yet elegant black dress. Meanwhile, Colin looked more casual with a flannel. Though it was just a photo shoot for a magazine, people responded positively in the comment sections.

One of them commented, “They are just too gorgeous!!!”. So that indicates that Colin and Katie are everyone’s favorites.

Not only that, but some of them also said, “THEY ARE TOO CUTE!!”. Yes, they are. Understandably, everybody wants them to be a couple even when the camera’s not around.

Here’s a video of her at a fan convention Q&A where she talks about Morgan and says he is like a little brother to her.

However, neither of them confirm nor deny anything. Katie, on the other hand, addressed Colin as “a little brother” to her. But, the lack of clarity from them indicates that they let people, especially their fans, speculate more and interpret their relationship the way they want.

Other than Katie McGrath, Colin Morgan is not linked with any girl, and we couldn’t find any other relationship throughout his entire career. The lack of Colin’s relationship started to make people form another speculation about his sexuality.

Many people also believe that Colin Morgan is gay, and he had been hiding his boyfriend all along.

Who is Katie McGrath?

An Irish actress Katie McGrath was born on 3 January 1983 in Ashford, County Wicklow, Ireland. She is best recognized for appearing as Morgana in the BBC One series Merlin.

She is also famous for her role of Lena Luthor in the superhero series Supergirl (2016-2021). Her other notable TV roles include Dracula, Slasher, The Queen, and more.

Colin Morgan Had a Boyfriend? All Truths Revealed!

The gay rumor didn’t start from Colin’s lack of romantic stories only, but also Colin’s character in Benjamin. Colin played it so well in the movie, just like his chemistry with Katie, to the point where people believed that he was a real gay.

Other than Benjamin, the gay rumor also referred to his character in Merlin, in which he played alongside Bradley James. Colin and Bradley were rumored to have something special between them. The rumor just spread even faster after they took a picture together, wearing a black tuxedo in the red carpet events; some of their fans even speculated that the pair came to the event together as a couple.

However, that was more of their fans’ expectations rather than the real truth. Both of them didn’t even talk that often and weren’t in contact with each other after they were longer in the series together. In March 2020, Bradley went Live on his Instagram and revealed that he and Colin hadn’t been in contact. But, Bradley said he wanted to rekindle the bond they used to have together on the set.

Rather than a romantic partner, Bradley and Colin were more of best friends. So, the gay rumor is not valid.

Besides, since we already know that Colin took his privacy on another level, of course, he didn’t bother to address these gay issues by himself.

Colin Morgan is Talented and Serious in Pursuing Acting Career Since He Was Little

Colin Morgan is not only handsome and talented but also a very hard-working man. In 1997, when Morgan studied at Integrated College Dungannon, he already starred in some of the collage productions, including Surgical Sensations at St. Senapods and Bad Day at Black Frog Creek. So even when he was still young, many of his counterparts and teachers already saw great potential in him.

In his senior years as a college student, the director Rufus Norris decided to join his production, which made him leave three-quarters of the way through his college year to make a professional step as an actor. He then went to West End theatre and began his first debut in Vernon God Little. Fortunately, his outstanding performance in the play received positive feedback. It was later used as an assessment for his final grade.

Later in November 2010, he received an award from the Belfast Metropolitan College, which honored him as Distinction for his contribution to the Arts. After that, the rest is history.
