Morgan Baker (born 11 May 1997) is an Australian actor best known for playing the role of Callum Jones on the soap opera Neighbours between 2008 and 2014.

Now currently a member of the Caulfield Arts Society.

Career[edit]

Baker has appeared in TV adverts since he was in kindergarten and has appeared in several tele-movies, films and TV series including The Society Murders,[1] Underbelly[2] and The King.[3]

Baker has said that to succeed in acting, he knows he must focus on it completely and realises he must make some sacrifices, such as quitting his tennis lessons.[4] He also recommends getting an agent and says prospective actors must "get used to being criticised" and that being good at reading helps.

Baker admits that people tell him he is "too quiet on set".

A keen chef, Baker has said that if he doesn't succeed in acting he would like to appear on Ready Steady Cook.[4] In light of this, he temporarily produced a cooking series documented on Snapchat titled "Shake and Bake with Morgan Baker", that ran from 2014-2015, before experiencing a hiatus and returning in 2016. The theme song was composed by musician Oliver Ryan.

He also starred in the 2006 Tropfest Film Festival top 16 finalist Goggles.[5]

In 2014, Baker left Neighbours to concentrate on his studies.[6]
