Finding clues to a Back-story … Cathal

Another look at how Colin prepares himself to inhabit a character and make it real.

backstory clues


This comment by Colin gives us a further glimpse into the kind of work and thought he puts into understanding any role, rounding out the person and making them whole, beyond the script.  Writing pages and pages, building the picture in his mind of who this person is, where he came from, the influences that brought him to the point where the filmed story begins.  Colin has said many times, “you have to do the work” … a committed and dedicated artist, not only to Cathal, but to every role.

(Thanks to Georgina Dawe,  first for her creative artwork … then for finding this portion of an interview by Colin … comments we had not previously seen.)

    • Thank you for the lovely compliment. Please do return and comment whenever you like.


    • I most humbly appreciate your thoughts. It is my hope that you will continue to enjoy these efforts. Many articles here follow Colin Morgan’s work, a biography of sorts, from his early years until the present. His is a talent that is dedicated and generous, brought to us through his years of study and genuine efforts to give any role his very best effort. We view him and his portrayals with great respect.
