Cerris Morgan-Moyer was born on July 20, 1973 in Truro, Cornwall and is an actress, voice over artist, film producer and host.
She grew up in a converted chapel a few feet from the sea on the north coast of Cornwall. Her playground was the beach, the cliffs and her imagination. Aged six, Cerris entertained an unknown guest with a lengthy and elaborate puppet show. The guest was Norman Stone, who directed Cerris in her first film, shot in Cornwall later that year: ‘A Different Drummer’, the BBC biopic of Cornish poet Jack Clemo. From that point forward, Cerris knew her life would involve much more of this magical work.
She trained at Central School of Speech and Drama in London, received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in New York and spent several years working on stage in NYC before moving to Los Angeles where she is currently based.
As well as performing in many stage productions, she has acted in dozens of films including The Rehearsal,The Oskar Knight Story, The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, Mail Order, Rule of Three, Melody of Clock and Arrow, Galaxy Hunter, The Stone and A Different Drummer.
She has joined forces in business with longtime friend and colleague Amyra Bunyard to form Lock & Loru Productions Ltd – a film production company.
