Juarez

Morgan has been played by Adonios and Isador Talamo (2003-04), Dylan and Jordan Cline (2004-05) and Jake Simms (2005). Most notably, the role was portrayed by George Juarez on a recurring status from December 15, 2005 to February 20, 2009.

On May 12, 2009, the role was recast with Aaron Refvem, who remained with the series until May 4, 2010. Tweets from ABC Soaps In Depth: “News for Aaron Refvem. He got a pilot that was picked up!. He didn’t find out that way. H e knew when he took the pilot this was the likely outcome. Remember: GH didn’t FIRE Aaron. He got a pilot that was picked up by NBC. Not GH’s choice! Couldn’t do both. This isn’t GH’s fault.”[6]

Following Refvem's departure, the role was recast with Aaron Sanders, who portrayed the role from May 6, 2010 to July 22, 2011.

Bryan Craig debuts as Morgan

On April 29, Johnny Zacchara tells Connie Falconeri that Morgan has been targeted in a gambling scam and is in trouble. Sonny is concerned when Morgan does not respond to his phone calls. Sonny and Shawn go to look for Morgan. Morgan is seen to be hiding out in Ava Jerome's apartment. Ava leaves for a business trip and few thugs from the gambling ring scheme come and beat Morgan up. Michael arrives and takes Morgan to a hospital where Morgan is bandaged up. Morgan then sneaks out to go back to Ava's.  Michael returns where he found Morgan and he meets Kiki Jerome, Ava's daughter. It is revealed that Kiki is Morgan's girlfriend, who he met online while getting caught in the gambling ring scheme. In an effort to help him, Kiki invites some of her friends over to gamble and try to win the money back. This plan fails due to the uncertainity of Kiki's allegiance to either side and Michael's skepticism of the plan. Morgan comes back to Port Charles and moves in with Michael. Kiki follows him to Port Charles.

He questions Michael when Kiki's purse is gone through and Morgan blames Michael for coming onto his girlfriend when Morgan sees them close and in only towels. Morgan goes over to see his father where he hears his mother Carly talking that they need to the pull the trigger. Morgan rightfully assumes that they are talking about knocking someone off, but Carly covers. Morgan is informed that Kiki is from a wealthy family and she is to inherit shares in a company. He later finds out that she is related to the Quartermaines, and is relieved to know that Michael & Kiki are cousins, ending the attraction between them. Morgan & Kiki move into the boathouse at the Quartermaine house to try and find their own living space.

Morgan still worries about the attraction between Michael and Kiki, which he confronts them about. They insist nothing is going on. However, Michael later admits that he and Kiki kissed before they knew they were cousins. Morgan is furious, and punches Michael in retaliation. Morgan goes to the hospital, looking for Kiki, and overhears Ava lying to Dr. Silas Clay about Kiki's age. Morgan confronts her later, and Ava admits that Kiki is actually Silas' biological daughter, not Franco's, as everyone assumes. Morgan wants to tell Kiki, but Ava tells him not to because Kiki might leave him for Michael. Morgan goes back to the Quartermaine mansion and proposes to Kiki, who accepts.

When Carly finds out about the engagement, she is livid and tells Sonny. Eventually, Sonny talks to Morgan, who reveals that Kiki isn't Franco's daughter, and he's afraid of losing her to Michael. When Sonny tries to convince Morgan to let Kiki go if she's in love with someone else, Morgan guilt-trips his dad, accusing him of loving Michael more than him, to get him to stay quiet. Sonny reluctantly agrees to show Morgan he does love him. Morgan also guilt-trips Michael into serving as his best man.

Morgan's secret doesn't last long, though, because Sonny's girlfriend, Connie, overhears their conversation and prints it in the newspaper trying to save her company. Morgan goes to the main house the day after he gave Kiki a ring, and overhears Tracy, AJ Quartermaine, and Elizabeth Webber talking about Kiki's paternity being revealed in the newspaper, and Tracy now having control of ELQ. Morgan runs back to the boathouse, and convinces Kiki to come to the court house with him to get a marriage license. Morgan takes Kiki's phone out from her bag and drops it under the bed before they leave.

At the courthouse, Michael tries calling Morgan, who doesn't answer. Eventually Mac Scorpio and Felicia Jones show up, and recognize Kiki from the paper. Morgan deflects their explanation long enough for them to be called to get a marriage license. After acquiring it, Morgan tries to convince Kiki to get married in a court. Initially reluctant, Kiki accepts. Morgan's manipulations work as Michael is too late to stop the ceremony. Michael tries to use the reveal of her true paternity in his favor and explain that Morgan has manipulated the situation, but Morgan uses a clever answer and herds his new bride out of the courthouse before Kiki can process the information.

Kiki cuts her mother out of her life, wanting nothing to do with her after finding out the truth about her paternity. Ava then goes to Morgan, blackmailing him into helping out her relationship with Kiki in exchange for her not telling Kiki about him lying about not knowing the truth about Kiki's father.

Soon after, Connie is killed, and Morgan goes to find his father. Instead, he finds Olivia Falconeri, Dante's mother, and both of them realize that Sonny, in his grief, has decided to commit suicide. Morgan, Dante, Olivia, and Kiki convene to figure out where Sonny is. Morgan is annoyed when they suggest calling Michael, since he is worried about AJ, who has been accused of Connie's murder. Dante convinces Morgan to call Michael, since he knows Sonny better than anyone. Eventually, they find Sonny on the Haunted Star with a gun, and they manage to talk him down.

Morgan & Michael decide to put their differences aside, and start reconciling. Meanwhile, Ava wants to hold a reception party for Morgan & Kiki. Though Kiki is against it, Morgan convinces her to, on the condition that she invites Silas. Kiki & Morgan are evicted from the Quartermaine house, and try to find their own place. Sonny comes to the party, completely off his antidepressants. He makes a scene there about AJ killing Connie, and reveals to everyone that Morgan knew Kiki was Silas' daughter before they got married, and lied about it.
