Early life[edit]

Trevor John Morgan was born in Chicago, Illinois[2] as the youngest of four children; he has three older half siblings.[3] His mother, Linda Borrasso, is a homemaker, and his father, Joseph Morgan, is a commodities trader.[3] When Morgan was five, the family relocated to Orange County, California, where Trevor appeared in various commercials.[4] In 1997, the family moved to Los Angeles, California, so that he could pursue an acting career.[3]


Morgan first appeared in several commercials for McDonald's and Cheerios and even was featured on a Life cereal box. He got his first break as Alec Mackenzie in the feature film The Family Plan, which led him to appear in Barney's Great Adventure. Morgan was given the lead role of Duke Cooper in I'll Remember April. His co-star Haley Joel Osment was given the lead role of Cole Sear in The Sixth Sense, where, in a dramatic reversal, Morgan played Cole's nemesis, a pretentious young actor.

After the success of The Sixth Sense, I'll Remember April was rushed to video due to Osment's role as Pee Wee Clayton. Morgan's picture was replaced by Osment's on the box for marketing purposes. Actor/director Mel Gibson, who was looking for several child actors to play his seven children in The Patriot, saw Morgan and asked him to audition for the movie. He landed the role, playing son Nathan Martin.

Morgan appeared in the films Jurassic Park III and The Glass House (2001). Among his other credits are Empire Falls as a menacing jock, the independent films Mean Creek, Off the Black and Local Color, and the baseball flick Chasing 3000. Morgan appeared on the television series, ER, where he played cancer victim Scotty Anspaugh for five episodes. For this role he garnered a 1998 SAG Award along with the main cast members of the show. His additional television credits include Genius for Disney Telefilms, In the Dog House for Viacom/Showtime, Touched by an Angel for CBS, Fire Co. 132 for 20th Century Fox and Missing Persons for ABC.
