Now in the throes of the terrible teens, Callum’s hormones are beginning to rage and this former confident trouble maker is now finding the need to belong amongst his peers. He also becoming more interested in girls and like his father before him, is working out how to make girls fall for the class clown.
Callum has the typical interests of a teenage boy: comics, fan fiction, and gaming – in particular the online game Dragon Prophecies. Although a mad fan of the Essendon Bombers he’s not fond of playing sports but Toadie still manages to drag him into the occasional game of street cricket.
Sixteen-year-old Morgan Baker started acting in commercials when he was a little tyke in kindergarten.
“I’m not sure what he enjoys more, the actual acting or being on set with the people he works with,” said his mother Mairwen. “Whatever it is, he always has a ball.”
The eldest of three brothers, Morgan has appeared in several films, tele-movies and TV series including The Society Murders and Underbelly.
In April 2008, Morgan was cast as the precocious Callum Jones who was originally cared for by long-time Neighbours’ favourite Toadie, played by Ryan Moloney but now enjoys a family life with his biological Mum Sonya played by Eve Morey and Toadie.
“I like Callum because he gets away with more than I ever would be allowed to at home and Ryan and Eve make me laugh a lot,” said Morgan. When he isn’t filming, Morgan attends school.
