Craig was born in Boca Raton, Florida in 1991. His first acting role was at age fourteen in the 2005 movie Off the Chain. He later left Florida to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles.
After moving to Los Angeles, Craig was cast in the 2011 film, Christmas Spirit, as Justin. Next, Craig would guest star on The Nine Lives of Chloe King in 2011. Craig then had a recurring role on Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures.
The December 2012 casting call described the character as being "[s]oulful [and] complex" with "intensity beyond his years." In March 2013, it was reported that Drew Osborne had taped scenes with Maurice Benard; Osborne's striking resemblance to Chad Duell led to speculation that he could be Morgan or a recast of Duell's character, Michael. Later, message board posters began reporting that Craig had been cast in the role of Morgan despite no official confirmation from ABC. On April 17, 2013, after months of speculation from fans, a rep from the show confirmed the news that Bryan Craig had been cast in the role of Morgan. Craig began taping his first scenes on April 15. Though no official airdate was announced, Craig's first appearance was slated for May 2013 on a contractual basis. Craig later revealed to Soap Opera Digest that he was hesitant to do a soap. However, the role of Morgan changed his mind about daytime. It was his parents who convinced him to sign a three-year contract. Angela Durrell of TV Source described the character of Morgan as "[s]ensitive and emotionally wounded." Morgan craves "strong ties" and stability. Mara Levinsky described Craig's Morgan as "impulsive" and "imperfect." Michael Logan described Craig's Morgan as a "marvelous muddle of puppy awkwardness and testy testosterone." When asked about his character's "casual and low-key," wardrobe, despite his family being filthy rich, Craig said Morgan is all about quick cash, but "far from snooty." He is the kind of guy that sleeps all day, and eats pizza for breakfast. His sense of style reflects his laid back personality. Susan Hornik described Craig's Morgan as a "Prince Harry-esque, bad boy." Since taking on the role of Morgan, Craig has been nominated at the Daytime Emmy Awards in the category of Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series, and won the award in 2016. On September 15, 2016, Craig announced via Instagram that he had decided to exit the series.
Craig was previously engaged to his former General Hospital co-star Kelly Thiebaud. They have broken up as of 2016.
