Olly Richards, Journalist

Freelance journalist writing about film, TV and other things that aren't boring. Contact: ollyrichards1@gmail.com


I am a journalist, primarily writing about film and television, though I also regularly write men’s lifestyle pieces. Publications I have written for include Empire (where I worked for six years), The Sunday Times, The Guardian Guide, ShortList, Q, Project, Metro, AskMen, Industria, FHM and The Daily Record.

I also have TV and radio experience, having appeared numerous times on BBC and Sky TV news programmes, as well as various radio shows. I was weekly film reviewer for British Forces Radio and reviewed the week’s cinema and DVD releases on 5 News.

Among the people I have been fortunate enough to interview are Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, David Attenborough, Noel Gallagher, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tinie Tempah, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Radcliffe, Bill Bryson, Mel Gibson, Tim Burton and Anthony Hopkins. I also once became a real-life superhero and still have the costume ready to go at a moment’s notice, if needs be (though it’s a bit too snug now).

I am available for commission and always keen to explore new areas. Though not jellyfish. I really don’t know anything about jellyfish. If you’d like to contact me, please do so at ollyrichards1@gmail.com.
