Mini BiographyGig Morton was born in Comox, British Columbia, Canada. His mom is a nurse and his dad is a builder/building inspector. He is the youngest of four children. Having three older sisters, who were entertained by most things he did, made Gig a natural performer. Gig got his start as a young actor when he appeared in four consecutive Walt Disney hit "Buddies" franchise movies. These include "Air Buddies", "Snow Buddies", "Space Buddies" and "Santa Buddies," Gig has also appeared in television series such as "Psych" for the USA Network, and "Fear Itself" for NBC. Reluctantly tagging along with his older sisters to audition for a stage production of "The Wizard of Oz", the seven-year-old Gig, soon found himself in the show. It became obvious that performing was natural for Gig. He went on to study acting in Nanaimo, and Vancouver, B.C. Gig has enjoyed working with many accomplished actors. He played opposite Nicole Eggert in the cable feature "Past Lies." Gig had a lead role in "Christmas Town" opposite Nicole de Boer. "Christmas Town" is the story of a little boy who is trying to rekindle the spirit of Christmas in his mother. The role was significant for Gig because he got to play a little boy who believed anything was possible. Working with Lou Diamond Phillips in "The Angel and the Badman" was another great experience for the young actor. In December of 2009 Gig worked with noted actor Callum Keith Rennie on an episode of "Shattered." Gig enjoyed being part of all 80 episodes of Mr. Young, seen on YTV, ABC Spark, Disney XD and Cartoon Network. It is amazing for Gig that he has fans from all over the world. Growing up, Gig studied Guitar, Tap Dancing, Ballet, Hip Hop Dance, Musical Theatre and Singing. He passed grade 5 levels of Speech and Dramatic Arts through Trinity Guildhall in London. Always interested in learning, Gig continues to take dance, and Parkour in Vancouver, while working and auditioning. When Gig has free time he is always researching and learning. One of his passions is science, specifically astronomy. Gig enjoys nothing more than getting out his telescope on a clear night and searching the sky for a glimpse at the wonders of the universe.
Above all, Gig loves to entertain people and help them forget their troubles for a while.
