” Now 32, Morgan — best known for playing the title role in the BBC series Merlin — is about to appear for the first time at the National Theatre, now run by Norris.
He’ll star in a major revival of Brian Friel’s Translations, a deceptively gentle title for a play that’s essentially about an act of cultural violence. Set in the 19th century, a group of English Royal Engineers turn up in rural Donegal and start renaming everything with anglicised names. Morgan plays Owen, the son of a local schoolmaster who returns to the village after six years in Dublin and acts as a go-between for the English and Irish. ”
Humans returns tonight at 9pm on Channel4 !
What’s next after Day Zero?
The new series of Humans picks up 12 months after Mattie (Lucy Carless) unleashed the consciousness code, bringing every Synth to sentient life. We open on the one-year anniversary of what’s now being called Day Zero, when tens of thousands died in the resulting chaos.
