About Debbi Morgan
American film and television actress,Deborah “Debbi” Morgan has an estimated net worth of $12.5 million.
If awards were bestowed for versatility, the graceful and congenial African-American actress Debbi Morgan would take first place. A veritable decades-long mainstay in the casts of A-list dramatic features, soap operas, acclaimed prime-time series dramas, big-screen exploitationers, sitcoms, and telemovies, Morgan has proven herself equally adept at each, while the number of roles she tackles each year suggests a die-hard craftswoman with no signs of slowing down.Born September 20, 1956, in Dunn, NC, Morgan moved with her family to New York City at the age of three. Despite the family’s residence in a South Bronx housing project, they managed without difficulty. Five years into the move, Morgan’s father died, which forced her mother, Lora, to support the two children (Debbi and younger sister Terry) as a secretary; she funded the girls’ parochial educations through the end of high school. The photogenic Debbi sought out an entertainment career in her teens — initially against the wishes of her mother. Lora issued stringent objections, terrified that Debbi — a high-honors student — would drift in with a bad element and engage in aberrant behavior. This never occurred; Debbi rapidly launched herself as an actress — first in a series of commercials, then onto the Broadway stage (in the 1975 play What the Wine Sellers Buy) and in feature films (with a role in, regrettably, the Richard Fleischer-directed debacle Mandingo).
After moving to L.A. in her early ’20s, Morgan commenced series television work, with guest appearances on such ethnically oriented sitcoms as What’s Happening!!, Good Times, and Sanford. Morgan’s crowning network achievement arrived at the tail end of the ’70s, with her acclaimed portrayal of Elizabeth (Alex Haley’s aunt) in the smash miniseries Roots: The Next Generations.
In May 2009 and 2011, she was nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
