Morgan Saylor


Morgan Saylor was born in Chicago and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. The love of acting and storytelling were apparent at an early age. In her early teens, she began performing in local and regional stage productions. In 2009, Morgan was cast as Dana Brody, on Showtime’s “Homeland” when she was fifteen years old. The acclaimed television show was filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina, which allowed her to travel back and forth while still attending public high school. After the show’s completion, Saylor moved to New York in 2013. Based in Brooklyn, she has shuffled between theatre and feature films. She starred alongside Kevin Costner in Disney’s “McFarland”, originated the role of Penny in When We Were Young and Unafraid at the Manhattan Theatre Club and as Leah in the Sundance-breakout film “White Girl”. As of 2017, Morgan attends the University of Chicago, studying mathematics and art history.
