Morris has relished his career as an accomplished actor. Staring in several films and television series, he has accumulated a lucrative net worth of $9 million in 2018.
Morris is one of those actors who maintains privacy when it comes to his personal life. He has impressed a lot of fan through his on-screen performance and romance but, not much is known about his off-screen relationship.
Lately, the on-screen couple Morris as Prince Philips and Sarah Bolger as Princess Aurora from television series Once Upon A Time has grabbed a lot of attention as they are speculated to be romantically linked off-screen as well. The fans have been suspecting about their chemistry through the hints in Instagram.
In June 2013, Morris posted a picture with Sarah. After a year, he posted another photo of Sarah. He shared the photo in February 2014 and captioned “My Gorgeous.” The word “My” before “Gorgeous” precisely hinted that their chemistry is most probably real off-the-screen as well. However, neither Morris nor Sarah has officially confirmed the news yet.
