The original Power was a crime thriller series produced by Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis Jackson (50 Cent). It told the story of James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a ruthless, intelligent drug dealer who went by the street name Ghost, but who wished to leave the criminal world to pursue legitimate business interests as a nightclub owner. St. Patrick aimed to balance his two lives while avoiding police capture amid a crumbling marriage and shifting economic alliances.
In addition to her most well know soap opera roles, Morgan has also appeared Generations as Chantal Marshall, Loving as Dr. Angie Hubbard and Carrie Mansfield, The City as Dr. Angie Baxter, and General Hospital and its spin-off Port Charles as Dr. Ellen Burgess.
