Scottish writer / performer Lynn Ferguson is a self-confessed entertainment mongrel. After gaining her Bachelor’s degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Lynn performed in all manner of places, from hosting her own stand-up comedy club in London, playing generally slightly psychopathic characters on TV, to the being lead in a Brecht’s “Good Woman of Setzuan” at the Royal National Theatre, picking up a Stage Award for acting and two further nomination, and a Fringe First award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival along the way.
As a writer, she’s constructed theatre pieces, several solo shows, the odd documentary, and three series of her own sitcom for the BBC Radio 4, and several afternoon plays. Moving to LA in 2008, with her husband and two sons, she was a staff writer on Peabody Winning, The Late Late Show and a script consultant with Pixar for the Oscar Winning Movie, Brave. She has also regularly hosted and told stories for The Moth throughout the US and helped take this successful NPR broadcast show to the UK and Ireland. Her story, “Before Fergus” is included in The Moth’s latest New York Times bestseller, “Occasional Magic”.
Though this makes her sound mightily impressive, Lynn contents herself in the knowledge that it’s likely she will always be best known as the voice of a plasticine chicken (Mac) in the movie Chicken Run.
