Chrys Phillips was born in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia where she grew up in an underprivileged home environment without consistent parents in her upbringing and passed from family to family in a foster style system. To escape these times in her early years, Chrys was already writing her own stories, before she knew what it meant to be a storyteller...

A passion and drive to tell stories has never left Chrys, taking her from a kid in a room dreaming up and writing about fictional worlds to an international acclaimed and best-selling Author and successful Screenwriter/Director. She is passionate about creating stories that engage audiences and evoke emotions, through her relatable and authentic characters that have true identities and life choices.


A natural born storyteller with a keen understanding of what people want to see and read, it’s no wonder Chrys Phillips has had worldwide success with several of her projects, including her deviously gripping and thrilleresque TV Drama Series Counter Play. The series airs on Australia’s leading Nine Network, Asia's Iflix and worldwide on titan streaming platform, Amazon Prime.


Hot off the heels of Counter Play and not stopping there, Chrys has been in the US for the last couple years where she's recently completed directing the Pilot episode of the TV Series Secret IdentityA prequel based on the IP of her book series Magic Wars Saga.


Other recent work includes; scripts in-development and optioned.
