Is Colin Morgan gay?
There are many rumors online. One such rumor is that the actor Morgan is gay. The gay rumor was sparked not just by his lack of love experiences but also by his portrayal of Benjamin.

Morgan played it so effectively in the film, along with his connection with Katie, that people thought he was a real gay man. Aside from Benjamin, the gay rumor also included his role in Merlin, costarring Bradley James.
Morgan and James were said to have a strong connection. The rumor grew even faster after they were seen together wearing a black tuxedo on the red carpet; some of their admirers even suspected that the duo attended the event as a couple.
However, that was more a result of only fan theories. Neither of the actors has ever come out openly as gay.
James went live on Instagram in March 2020 and claimed that he and Benjamin actor had not been in contact. According to Creeto, James, on the other hand, stated that he wants to restore the relationship they shared on set.
Hence, there is no substantial evidence that the actor is gay.
Is Colin Morgan married to Katie McGrath?
Katie McGrath is also a well-known Irish actress. She rose to prominence on television for her roles as Morgana Pendragon in the BBC One series Merlin and Lucy Westenra in the British-American series Dracula.
McGrath and Morgan met while filming the third season of Merlin in 2010. According to DNB Stories, the rumors of them dating started around 2012. The answer to whether Morgan is married to McGrath is he’s not married and doesn’t have a wife.
According to some sources, Morgan and McGrath got engaged in 2016, and the duo even went out to buy a wedding ring. Since neither has confirmed their engagement, we couldn’t say for sure.
However, they once posed for a picture for TV Guide Magazine in May 2013, proving that they were more than “just friends.”
The photo had a black-and-white effect, a collage of four photographs that merge into one, with the actress repeatedly placing her arms around his shoulder.
McGrath was dressed simply yet elegantly in a black gown in the shot. Meanwhile, Morgan dressed down in a flannel. Even though it was only a magazine picture session, fans replied enthusiastically in the comment sections.
