Birth Name: Debbi Morgan
Born: 09/20/1956
Birth Place: Dunn, North Carolina, USA

Settling in NYC, Morgan debuted as Angie on ABC's "All My Children" in the early 80s. Coupled romantically onscreen with Darnell Williams, the pair were one of the first blacks to headline a major soap love story. During her long tenure on the show, Morgan earned two Daytime Emmy nominations, winning the trophy in 1989. She was also able to fit in other work as well, including hosting the syndicated "New York Hot Tracks" from 1984 to 1986 and co-starring with Dorian Harewood in "The Jesse Owens Story" (syndicated, 1984) and "Guilty of Innocence: The Lennel Jeter Story" (CBS, 1986). After leaving "All My Children", Morgan assumed the role of Chantal on the Los Angeles-based NBC soap "Generations", then reprised her award-winning part on ABC's "Loving" in 1993. She and Darnell Williams were again partnered onscreen (although he was playing a different character). When that show was revamped, Morgan was among the cast who was retained for the new series, "The City" (ABC, 1995-97) but the show failed to find its audience. Undaunted, Morgan returned to Los Angeles and created the role of the demanding resident Dr Ellen Burgess on "Port Charles", a spin-off of the popular "General Hospital", a role she played from 1997 to 1998.
