He was also part of the love triangle between Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Lauren “Kiki” Jerome (Hayley Erin).
Morgan got his girl, albeit under false pretenses, but the drama didn’t end there. After their marriage, he shocked his new wife when he slept with her mother.
Apart from being a part of the gambling addiction storyline, his character was also the center of another relevant and serious issue, which is a mental disorder. Writers of the show made his character show signs of mania and depression. He was diagnosed to have bipolar disorder just like his father.
During his stint in the sudser, Craig was nominated four times for a Daytime Emmy Award. He won twice for the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series category in 2016 and 2017. He announced that he was leaving the show using his Instagram account back in 2016. So, writers created an exit storyline wherein Morgan seemed to have died in a car bombing. His death was never confirmed so there is still a possibility that he might return to the show.
