Joseph Martin is the oldest child in his family, and although born in London, he lived in Swansea, Wales for 11 years. He went to Morriston Comprehensive School and later BTEC Performing Arts course at Gorseinon College before moving back to the English capital to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama.

Morgan made his debut on television in the Simon Cellan Jones’s TV movie “Eroica” in 2003, and soon after he appeared in “Henry VIII” (2003) starring Ray Winstone, Joss Ackland, and Sid Mitchell. His next films were Peter Weir’s Oscar-winning “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” (2003) with Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, and Billy Boyd, and Oliver Stone’s “Alexander” (2004) starring Colin Farrell, Anthony Hopkins, and Rosario Dawson. All added significantly to his net worth.
In the meantime, Joseph had a role in four episodes of the series called “Hex” (2004), and later in the movie “Kenneth Williams: Fantabulosa!” (2006) with Michael Sheen, Cheryl Campbell, and Peter Wight. In 2007, Morgan appeared in Iain B. MacDonald’s “Mansfield Park” and Harmony Korine’s “Mister Lonely”, and also in five episodes of “Doc Martin” starring Martin Clunes.

His next role was as Tony Reece in eight episodes of “Casualty” (2008-2009), and in films “Angels Crest” (2011), and “Immortals” (2011) starring Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke, and John Hurt. However, Morgan gained international fame on The CW show “The Vampire Diaries” (2011-2016), and later in “The Originals” (2013- ). Thanks to these series, Morgan generated considerably more money into his bank account.

Joseph’s latest movies were Gonzalo López-Gallego’s “Open Grave” (2013), Luke Massey’s horror-thriller “Armistice” (2013), and Ross Clarke’s “Dermaphoria” (2015).

#Quote
1I love 'The Walking Dead.' I'm a massive fan of that show.
2I would never assume to tell another actor how to do his job!
3I've always had an incredible interest in the villains, which are a lot more fun to play.
4When you're indestructible, then nothing is a threat really. So nothing needs to be taken that seriously.
5If you're working with someone who you get on with and you're supposed to hate them on the screen, then you get this playful challenge thing where you're trying to one-up each other and that's really interesting. Sometimes it can become like tennis. The harder you hit the ball back, then the harder the hit it back to you.
6Vampires are a genre now.
7'Interview with a Vampire' made vampires sexy.
