Morgana Davies's Biography
Morgana made her screen debut at only 7 years of age opposite Charlotte Gainsbourg in the Australian/French feature film â€˜The Treeâ€™. Directed by Julie Bertuccelli, the film premiered on the closing night of the Cannes Film Festival and earned Morgana rave reviews. Her performance was honoured with the Film Critics Circle Award for Best Female Actor in a Supporting Role and AFI nominations in both the categories of Best Lead Actress and Best Young Actor.
The following year, Morgana appeared in â€˜The Hunterâ€™, an adaptation of the award-winning novel by Julia Leigh. The film, staring Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and saw Morgana again nominated for an AFI (AACTA), this time for Best Supporting Actress.
Other credits followed including a lead guest role in Steven Spielbergâ€™s â€˜Terra Novaâ€™ and the short film â€˜Julianâ€™, which took out the Crystal Bear for Best Short Film at the Berlin Film Festival in the Generation KPlus category.
Most recently Morgana was seen in â€˜Return To The Devilâ€™s Playgroundâ€™ for Foxtel (Director: Rachel Ward), and in Alice Englertâ€™s short film â€˜The Boyfriend Gameâ€™ which premiered at TIFF.
