Neil Morrissey and Adoption
Morrissey and his brother Stephen were taken into care as boys after several incidents of shoplifting. They remained in contact with their family, but Neil soon became involved in children's theater and chose to remain in a children's home through adolescence, where he could continue in acting. When he was 18 he went on to drama school.
His TV credits include Boon, The Journal, Follow Through, Roll over, Beethoven, Travellers by Night, Playing Away, Blood Runner, Gentlemen and Players, Ellis Island, Pulaski and Paris, Stuck on You, A Woman's Guide to Adultery and Men Behaving Badly.
