Becky Brunning is a comedian, writer and actor best known for her role as Lindsay Lucas in award-winning crime drama Broadchurch. Her debut hour of stand up, Beaming toured the Australian Fringe circuit and sold out most of its 2017 Edinburgh run. She trained in physical theatre and clowning at the London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA) and wagon wheeled onto the stand up circuit in post-Olympic 2012. Her quirky, offbeat style gained her place as finalist at the Funny Women Awards (2013) and Bath New Act of the Year (2014). She won Audio Go’s national competition, Stand up and Get Heard (2014) and was a finalist for Magners New Act (2015). Her critically acclaimed character solo show, The Olympic Gene premiered at EdFringe (2010), toured the UK and random fractions of the US (Minnesota and Montana anyone?) and included a guest appearance at BBC Sports Personality of the Year. A 28 minute mockumentary followed The Olympic Gene: Going for Silver featuring a host of British Olympians including gymnastic silver medallist and ‘Strictly’ winner – Louis Smith. Becky’s thrilled to be featuring in an Indie British romcom due to film later in 2019.
