Morgana O'Reilly MC/Entertainer Profile

Morgana is a familiar face in both New Zealand and Australia, having worked as an actress and writer appearing in a succession of popular screen productions. She played the pivotal lead of Kyle Baxtor in her breakout role in New Zealand horror-comedy Housebound. Following this, Morgana landed a core cast role in Australia’s most popular soap series Neighbours, along with roles in cult-series Rake, Wanted, Offspring and Wentworth. She also has extensive experience in theatre, having toured her one woman show The Height of the Eiffel Tower all across the world from 2009 until 2015, taking it to the prestigious Edinburgh and New York Fringe Festivals.

Event Highlights

2022Big Screen Symposium, Script to Screen - MC


Big Screen Symposium 2022

Morgana O’Reilly was MC for the Big Screen Symposium 2022, a vital role that sets the tone of the event. Morgana was note perfect. Her warmth, sense of humour and ability to adapt quickly to changing circumstances was impressive. She was a pleasure to work with leading up to and at the event. Although Morgana was given a script she added elements that engaged the audience and had them laughing. I can’t wait to find an reason to work with her again and I highly recommend her to anyone considering working with Morgana.
