Richard Laxton

Comedies, dramas, TVCs... Richard Laxton excels at directing all three. From his hugely successful sitcom 'Him & Her' (which won him a BAFTA) to BAFTA-nominated drama 'Burton and Taylor' plus 'Mum' (BAFTA-winning sitcom with Lesley Manville), everything he touches turns to, er, BAFTAs.

His commercials for Lotto featuring real people are also beautifully done; putting each person at ease and creating a heartwarming atmosphere.

National Lottery
"Other Half"
Another sweet montage from Lotto sees various people discuss what they'd get for their other half if they won the jackpot. From playful gifts like giant Jenga sets to more practical presents (a very romantic pair of wellies), and even the rather backhanded suggestion of a hair transplant. We enjoy the diverse casting in these ads, giving us a range of answers from all walks of life.
