Chris Lunt is a writer who burst onto our screens with the hit ITV drama Prey which garnered a BAFTA nomination for Miniseries, with Chris himself being nominated for Breakthrough Talent. The second series of Prey is in production.
Chris has been mentored as part of Breakthrough Brits by writer/director/actors Simon Pegg and Ricky Gervais.
The problem with being a writer is you do spend a lot of time working on your own in complete isolation. You often wonder whether you are going in the right direction or doing the right thing, so it’s wonderful to be recognised by such a prestigious organisation as BAFTA. It lets you know you’re doing something right.
