Lyn Paul has appeared on many television programmes as a solo artist and with the New Seekers. She started out as a child actor in Coronation Street and in 2003 brought her career full circle with an appearance in another of the UK's most popular soaps, Emmerdale.
Lyn describes herself as a "soap fiend." In an interview with David Jensen, she recalled the time when she had to miss her favourite soaps because she was travelling with the New Seekers: "When we went to America my parents used to tape everything for me ... and on a Wednesday night it was absolutely brilliant because it started off with 'Crossroads', then it'd go into 'Emmerdale', then into 'Coronation Street'. And, if I was lucky, after that it was 'Dallas' or 'Dynasty' ... You name it, I watched it!" (From The Bottom To The Top, Capital Gold, 20th July 2006)
Lyn has also recorded a number of television advertisements - remember the famous Coke ads of the '70s? The New Seekers' Buy The World A Coke is the most famous of them all but Lyn's solo single It Oughta Sell A Million was also originally a Coke advert.
Although she hasn't appeared in any films, Lyn did record the love theme (written by John Barry) for Gregory Peck's 1974 film The Dove.
Lyn has also been mentioned in a film - Anita and Me (2002). Based on Meera Syal 's first novel, the film tells the story of Meena, a 12-year-old girl growing up in a Midlands mining village in the 1970s. Meena develops a friendship with the local teenage tearaway, Anita Rutter, who at one point boasts: "I'm thinking of having a feather cut like Lyn in New Seekers."
