Jon Morrison is a great Scottish actor who has been a firm fixture on British television since 2011 as a part of ITV's Vera. Though he has done many other plays, films, and television series since the early 1970s, he is mostly recognized as DC Kenny Lockhart from Vera and he is as much beloved as Brenda Blethyn herself. He is also known for starring in the Peter McDougall plays Just Another Saturday and The Elephants' Graveyard. He has also featured in Gary Oldman's Nil by Mouth.
Jon Morrison's most iconic role is as Kenny in Vera, however. He has starred in 46 episodes of the show and because nobody does the role of the hardened detective like him, it doesn't look like he's leaving Vera Stanhope's side anytime soon. Nobody can say that they weren't glad to see him in the latest season whereas everybody talked about how sad they were when there were rumors that he was quitting the show two years back. Anyway, he has reprised his role for Season 13 and as it turns out, he has had a weight loss. So, let's discuss that!

The actor's body looks thinner than before and while some would say that's an improvement, others, looking at his face, can't bring themselves to agree on that as he looks extremely worn out and tired. He looks much older than before and you can say that he has aged since the last season so, obviously, he would look old but it's not that. It seems as though he has aged by decades in a year. It's not normal. That's why the viewers wonder if Jon Morrison's weight loss had anything to do with him being ill or anything.
Well, that's just speculation on our part based on his appearance and we can't be certain about whether he is actually sick and has some illness which is causing him to lose weight. What we can be certain about is that he has lost weight. As for the hows and whys of it, we can't tell. He has never talked about wanting to lose weight so, we can't tell if he's embarked on a weight loss journey. Jon Morrison has stayed silent about the whole thing. He has not responded to people's speculations and since he's not the kind of person who's known for addressing rumors about him, don't expect anything from him.
