Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Morgan revealed The Fall writer Allan Cubitt and lead actress Gillian Anderson met with him in London to discuss his role in the show.
He said: “When I watched series one I thought, ‘I’d love to be part of that’ so it was a huge honour when I met Allan and Gillian in London.
“It’s always nice when something like this happens. Expectations will not just be met but exceeded. Mine were when I read it.
“As a Northern Irish fella myself, when I think of a drama being based here, I think of something to do with the Troubles, but this is on a completely different level.
“This is a terrifying story of a sexual predator and that’s here!
“We’re used to being in the headlines but in a very different way. That’s what makes The Fall so engaging.”
