Mike Morgan (1929 – 5 June 1958), born John Michael Pughe-Morgan,[1] was a British actor. His film acting debut was in the 1957 film comedy Barnacle Bill, which starred Sir Alec Guinness.

Morgan played a much larger role in another film with Guinness, The Horse's Mouth, as Nosey, a sidekick of Guinness's character, Gulley Jimson. However, shortly before filming ended, he fell ill with meningitis and died before the film was completed; some of his lines were therefore dubbed by another actor.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Morgan was married to actress Elvi Hale until his death in 1958; she married George Murcell three years later.
