The Fall was recently nominated for two BAFTA awards - Dornan is in the running for Leading Actor, while the show itself got a nod in the Mini Series category.

28-year-old Morgan will next be seen in BBC drama Quirke opposite Gabriel Byrne - the crime drama has aired on RTÉ One in Ireland but is yet to receive an airing on BBC One.
