Becky Simpson grew up in a creative environment. Her father Dave Simpson is a professional writer behind such stage plays as Girls Night Out and Raving Beauties. Her mother Diane Whitley started her career as an actress, later moving into writing, producing and directing. It was therefore natural for Becky to follow in their footsteps and she has always had an interest in the arts. Becky has written short plays, stories, poetry and films; she took up guitar at 13 and now also plays drums and bass guitar as well as writing songs, and she had her first acting role at the age of 8.
Writing & Producing
Becky has been a keen writer since the tender age of 9 and it was only natural for her to study Creative Writing at University.
She wrote and produced her first film in 2010 - Thinking Straight, which was snapped up for several festivals round the world including London Independent Festival, Melbourne Queer Fesitval, Cannes Short Film Corner, Mix Milano and London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.
Becky has written two feature films which she is keen to get into development. She enjoyed the experience of producing and would definitely venture down that road again, although she is also keen to try her hand at directing.
She has also written several treatments and first episodes for various TV dramas she is hoping to get off the ground. Last year she wrote a trial script for Hollyoaks and she recently took it upon herself to write a Sherlock script and a Doctor Who script, both of which she is hoping to use to try and get her further work in the industry.
