Gillian Anderson(since 2016)
Peter Julian Robin Morgan, Template:Postnominals (born 10 April 1963) is a British film writer and playwright. Morgan is best known for writing the historical films and plays The Queen, Frost/Nixon, The Damned United, and Rush. He is the creator of the Netflix series The Crown.
In 2008, Morgan was ranked number 28 in The Telegraph's list of "The 100 most powerful people in British culture". In February 2017, he was awarded a British Film Institute Fellowship (BFI).
Morgan was born in Wimbledon, London. His mother, Inga (née Bojcek), was a CatholicPole who fled the Soviets, and his father, Arthur Morgenthau, was a German Jew who fled the Nazis, arriving in London in 1933. His father died when Morgan was nine years old. Morgan attended boarding school at Downside School, Somerset, and gained a degree in Fine Art from the University of Leeds.
Morgan wrote television scripts during the 1990s, including an episode of Rik Mayall Presents... and the Comedy Premiere The Chest. He wrote the screenplay to the romantic comedy Martha, Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence (1998) and had some success with the TV series The Jury (2002). In 2003, Morgan broke through with The Deal, a television drama about the power-sharing deal between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown that was struck in the Granita restaurant in London in 1994.
In 2006, Morgan received his Academy Award-nomination for The Deal's follow-up, The Queen, that showed how the death of Princess Diana impacted Prime Minister Tony Blair and the Royal Family. His work on the film eventually awarded him a Golden Globe from the Hollywood Foreign Press, and Helen Mirren won numerous awards for playing the title role. 2006 also saw the release of The Last King of Scotland, the screenplay of which Morgan adapted with Jeremy Brock. In 2007 they jointly won a BAFTA Film Award for their work on the film.
Also in 2006, Morgan's first play, Frost/Nixon, was staged at the Donmar Warehouse theatre in London. Starring Michael Sheen as David Frost and Frank Langella as Richard Nixon, the play concerns the series of televised interviews that the disgraced former president granted Frost in 1977. These ended with his tacit admission of guilt regarding his role in the Watergate scandal. The play was directed by Michael Grandage and opened to enthusiastic reviews. In May 2007, the 50th San Francisco International Film Festival honoured Morgan with the year's Kanbar Award for Excellence in Screenwriting.
In July 2009, filming began on The Special Relationship, the third film of Morgan's "Blair trilogy". The film focuses on Blair's (again played by Michael Sheen) relationship with US president Bill Clinton between 1997 and 2000. Morgan was originally scheduled to direct the film (making his directorial debut) but pulled out a month before filming began. He was replaced by Richard Loncraine. Morgan was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards for his work on the film. In 2008 Morgan adapted John le Carré's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy into a screenplay for Working Title Films.
He has since finished the script for Hereafter, a supernatural thriller "in the vein of The Sixth Sense". DreamWorks bought the screenplay on spec in March 2008. The development was later transferred to Warner Bros. and filming began in October 2009 under the direction of Clint Eastwood.
In 2008 the film Frost/Nixon, with Sheen and Langella playing the parts they had on stage, opened in the UK and the US to positive reviews. Morgan was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on the film. In June 2009, it was announced that he would be the co-writer of Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film.The Daily Telegraph's Mandrake diary reported in April 2010 that Morgan had quit the production after Sam Mendes was hired to direct, and that Patrick Marber would replace him. MGM dismissed the Telegraph's claims as speculation.
In 2010, Morgan started writing the screenplay for an upcoming biopic about rock musician Freddie Mercury, the lead vocalist, and songwriter, for the rock band Queen.
Morgan is the creator and writer of the Netflix historical drama series The Crown – a biographical story about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The first season was released on 4 November 2016.

The Crown's controversial second series may hint at Prince Philip's infidelities, but creator Peter Morgan insists he's not trying to "pick holes in the royal marriage".
An episode from season two centres on the Duke's four month tour of the Commonwealth countries without the Queen or their children in 1956, and it's implied that he was linked to a number of women during that time.
In one scene, Philip's private secretary Commander Michael Parker writes a letter back to Philip's exclusive Thursday Club in the UK and details their misadventures.
The infamous lunch club consisted of his close acquaintances including Cecil Beaton and Lord Louis Mountbatten.
Coco Van Oppens / Netflix
Parker's letter reads: "Philip is a work-hard-play-hard man who would never stand in the way of a bit of fun. And in New Guinea it turns out, there's no such thing as infidelity. Men are expected to indulge... I think by the end of this tour, we'll be able to make a qualitative assessment about where the finest women in the world come from."
It continues: "But now I can tell you the women of New Guinea are sweeter than those of Ceylon and right up there with those of Malaya. I have shared these secrets in good faith. The content must like all disclosures of the Thursday Club, remain secret. 90 per cent of the officers on board are married and would kill me if they knew what I was writing."
The tour is also described by the Netflix drama as "a five-month stag do – whores in every port".
Philip – played by Matt Smith – is also seen eyeing up a journalist called Helen King during their tour, who he agrees to speak with because of his attraction to her. But when the reporter delves into his past and his mother's mental health, he angrily announces: "Don’t let my vanity get the better of me again."
Another incriminating scene features the Queen – played by Claire Foy – discovering a picture of a dancer in Philip's (Matt Smith) bag, which is could be Pat Kirkwood – the late British stage actress, singer and dancer who Philip was previously linked to.
However, Morgan described the royal couple's marriage as a "triumph" at the show's recent premiere in London, and pointed out that most marriages experience "ups and downs".
"What I have to do is write a story about people at the centre of British life who are human beings," Morgan explained at the screening (via Press Association). "If you're hoping that tries to pick holes in the royal marriage, I wouldn't dream of it. Their marriage is a triumph by any standards."
"If you're close to someone for that long you're going to have ups and downs and I didn't want the show to duck complicated relationships," he said.
The Queen and Prince Phillip recently celebrated their their 70th wedding anniversary – the longest marriage of any royal couple.
Meanwhile, The Crown season 2 returns to Netflix on December 8.

Awards for Peter Morgan

The upper part of her body rests on her hands and is bent over me in immobility, and Mashin's powerful backside, as if by itself, apart from her. Threshes, threshes and threshes, hammering a new wave of pleasure into me every time.
