Biography

Playing a role as iconic as the founder of Christianity is something that comes to few actors. Diogo Morgado, however, was the first to become known as the "Hot Jesus." Born in Campo Grande, Lisbon, Portugal in 1980, Morgado began modeling at the tender age of 14, prior to beginning acting at 15 on the top-rated Portuguese TV show "Terra Mãe" (1998). Other TV roles followed, but it was his portrayal of Miguel in the romance "Amo-Te, Teresa" that made Morgado one of his country's most promising actors, as the TV movie captured some of the highest ratings ever in Portugal.
