Diogo Miguel Morgado Soares (born January 17, 1981) is a native Portuguese actor who may be best known for his portrayal of Jesus Christ in the History Channel epic mini-series The Bible and in the film Son of God.

He is currently starring as “The Man” in the CW‘s The Messengers.

Diogo Morgado stars as “The Devil” (formerly only known as “The Man”) in the CW Network’s drama series, “The Messengers.” But Morgado is perhaps best known in the United States for his portrayal of “Jesus” in 20th Century Fox’s feature film “Son of God” (for which he received an Imagen Award nomination) and in History Channel’s Emmy nominated miniseries, “The Bible,” which was the highest rated cable show of 2013. Morgado also appeared on the hit ABC drama, “Revenge” as “Dr. Jorge Velez.”

Already a household name in his native Portugal and one of GQ’s “Men of the Year,” Morgado’s career spans top television, film and stage productions, including a lead role in the #1 rated Portuguese television series and International Emmy winner “Laços de Sangue.” Morgado began his career at the age of fifteen when he joined the cast of top rated television series “Terra Mãe” (1998), “Diário de Maria” (1998), followed by “A Lenda da Garça” (2000) and “A Febre do Ouro Negro” (2000). His performance as “Miguel” in the 2000 telefilm “Amo-Te, Teresa” earned Morgado high regard as one of the most promising actors of his generation and the TV movie is still one of the highest rated ever in Portugal. Morgado has worked consistently in Portuguese television with over 15 series regular roles, many with the distinguished SIC network. Morgado’s film credits include a noteworthy performance in the title role of Portuguese dictator Antonio De Oliveira Salazar in the hit feature film “A Vida Privada De Salazar.” Morgado was also able to showcase his comedic chops in “O Crime do Padre Amaro,” which received international attention from directors all over the world. Morgado is also a passionate theater actor and had lead roles in prestigious plays such as David Hare’s”Skylight” and Peter Shaffer’s “The Royal Hunt to the Sun.”

Beyond Portugal, Morgado has had lead roles in a few international films like Spain’s “Dos Rivales Casi Iguales” and “Star Crossed,” and Brazil’s “Revelação” and “The Jungle.” Morgado has also wrapped leading roles in two independent films in the U.S. — the gritty urban drama “Red Butterfly” and the action-filled adrenaline film “Born to Race: Fast Track.” Morgado was recently seen on Portuguese television as “Eduardo” in the SIC series “Sol de Inverno.” He also starred in the recent Portuguese comedy film, “Virados do Avesso,” which debuted at the top of the Portuguese box office.

Morgado splits his time between Los Angeles and his native Portugal.
