Brody was introduced to the show along with his three siblings; Tori Morgan (Penny McNamee), Justin Morgan (James Stewart) and Mason Morgan (Orpheus Pledger). The family received immediate comparisons to the show’s popular Braxton brothers. Brody is a passionate and ambitious chef. He is also portrayed as being loyal, smart, and occasionally pessimistic. For the first few weeks after their arrival, Brody and his siblings concealed the fact that they were in witness protection. They were later held hostage by their parents’ killer and involved in a plane crash, which left Brody badly injured. Jeannie Woods (Anna Bamford) was introduced as a love interest for Brody in late 2016.

The character became the focus of the show’s first storyline about ice addiction, which was a prevalent issue in Australia at the time. Series producer Lucy Addario implemented the storyline, as she felt the show could no longer ignore it. Heywood carried out extensive research, so his portrayal of Brody would be as accurate as possible. Brody uses ice to help him cope with the pressures of running a restaurant. He soon gets into debt with his dealer, leading to major consequences for himself and his family. While recovering from his addiction, Brody begins a relationship with Bay newcomer Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman), whom he later marries. The marriage ends when Brody begins an affair with Simone Bedford (Emily Eskell). The storyline led to the character’s exit on 10 June 2019.

. . . Brody Morgan . . .

On 5 December 2015, Jonathon Moran from The Daily Telegraph reported actors Jackson Heywood, James Stewart and Orpheus Pledger had joined the cast of Home and Away as brothers Brody, Justin and Mason Morgan respectively.[1] All three began filming their first scenes during the following week, ahead of their on-screen debut in 2016.[1] During the audition process for the Morgans, Heywood was paired with several actors until the producers found the right combination. He formed an immediate connection with Stewart, Pledger and Penny McNamee, who plays their sister Tori Morgan, and commented “It was really nice to see the ones I had the most connection with were the ones that were given the job.”[2]

Heywood had previously appeared in Home and Away as recurring character Lachie Cladwell in 2009. He explained that his first appearance in the show was “overwhelming”, as it was his first professional acting job, but rejoining the cast alongside three other actors, meant that there was less pressure on him the second time around.[2] The family drew immediate comparisons to the show’s Braxton brothers, who were introduced to the show in 2011, which Heywood expected. He stated, “I can definitely see that, but I think we have a very different dynamic. It will be exciting to tell the story and as it will be revealed, it will be a very different story.”[1] Brody made his first appearance on 7 June 2016, alongside Justin and Mason.[3]

Ahead of his screen debut, Heywood described his character as “quite jaded and somewhat pessimistic at times, deep down he always has the best intentions and a true heart of gold.”[3] He also thought Brody was “passionate” and loyal, with “a wonderful complexity of emotions”.[3] Brody’s profile on the TVNZHome and Away website states that he can occasionally be “a bit gruff” and he struggles to let people in.[4] Brody is the second youngest Morgan sibling and he shares a close bond with Tori. The death of his parents affected him the more than the others.[4] Heywood later called Brody “the most ambitious” member of the Morgan family, as well as the smartest and most reliable. He also said Brody was the most apprehensive about moving to Summer Bay, as he feels that the town will not provide him with many career opportunities.[5] Elaborating further on the comparisons to the Braxtons, Heywood explained that the Morgan siblings had “a very different dynamic”. They all had professions, and are not criminals.[5] Brody is a successful chef and Heywood called him “a real craftsman”.[5]

Brody, his two brothers Justin and Mason, and their dog Buddy are driving to Summer Bay to join their sister Tori, who moved to the town five weeks before them, when they are almost involved in a car crash with Martin “Ash” Ashford (George Mason).[6] Brody and Mason desperately try to keep Justin and Ash from fighting.[6] The brothers continue their journey to the Bay, where they find Ash talking with Tori and Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) on the beach and another fight almost breaks out, until Tori reveals that Justin, Brody and Mason are her brothers.[6] The siblings wonder if they will be able to stay in their new home this time, leading to the start of their first major storyline.[6]
