Morley began his professional acting career in 2005 making his debut in low-budget horror film Dead Harvest. Fortunately, it didn’t take long before Morley gained recognition. His performance in Angels with Dirty Faces in 2005 attracted the attention of the casting directors of Home and Away who selected him to play the main role of Drew Curtis.

Morley didn’t blow the opportunity… In 2007, the role earned him the first award nomination of his career – a Logie Awards nomination for Most Popular New Male Talent. Morley appeared in Home & Away for 148 episodes leaving in 2008. While on the show, Morley in 2007 appeared in Australian celebrity singing competition series, It Takes Two. He was eliminated after 6 weeks on the show.

After leaving Home & Away, Morley was in 2008 cast in Nine Network’s series The Strip where he played the main role of Tony Moretti.

While on The Strip, Morley revealed what he hated about Home & Away saying;

“It’s nice to be in a show (The Strip) where it’s not based on taking your shirt off,” he said. “That was one thing that got me down (in Home & Away). If that’s all I am – a meat puppet – then I don’t know that I want to keep doing it.”

However, the series (The Strip) was short-lived getting canceled after the first season due to poor ratings. Also in 2008, Morley appeared in Nine Network’s TV film Scorched. In 2010, he appeared in the feature film, Road Train and appeared in the Season 4 Episode 5 of Sea Patrol.

His role was the love interest of Chris Pappas (James Mason), making them the first gay couple on the show. While on Neighbors, Morley put his Australian Footballing skills to use when he appeared in a feature film titled Blinder (2013) which focused on Australian rules football.

After appearing in 50 episodes, Morley’s role in Neighbours came to an end in 2013. In 2014, he began playing the main role of Bellamy Blake in The CW’s The 100 which is filmed in Canada. The role earned him the first award of his professional career – an E! Online award for Alpha Male Madness.
