Lindsey Morgan has proven that she is not just another actress looking to get by in Hollywood because of her pretty face. The Texas-native and University of Texas at Austin alumni, who is best known for her roles in shows like The 100 (2014–present) and General Hospital (2012-2013), is a Daytime Emmy Award nominee. Join us as we take a look at other facts about her.
Who is Lindsey Morgan? (Ethnicity)
Lindsey Marie Morgan was born to Kelly George Morgan and Alice Burciaga on the 27th of February, 1990, in Houston, Texas. Her father is of Irish descent while her mother is Mexican, and of Basque descent, which makes Morgan herself multiracial.
As the story goes, Morgan, from a very young age, aspired to become an actress, after having looked up to a few 90s movie stars. After graduating from Jersey Village High School in 2007, she enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin where she studied Fine Arts with a specialization in Theater Arts. As a freshman, Morgan, who was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful girls you would come across in school, was able to get jobs in commercials and print advertisements. It is said that her jobs barely gave her time to participate in school activities, however, the young model was able to balance both demands. While still in school, Morgan also got cast as an extra in the series Friday Night Lights which further encouraged her to pursue an acting career as she moved to Los Angeles after graduation to make a name for herself in Hollywood.
