Lucy Irvine Biography

Lucy Irvine is one of the most popular and richest British adventurer who was born on February 1, 1956 in London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, England, United Kingdom. As of June 1, 2023, Lucy has a net worth approximately $5 Million. After the success of Castaway, she published Runaway in 1985 about her life before she decided to spend one year at Tuin. She describes how she was hitchhiking in Greece when she was raped with a knife-point and suffered a mental breakdown.

Diana Hepworth approached Irvine to write their biography. The two British expatriates, who were British citizens, set sail from England in 1947 to find a paradise that would allow them to raise a family. They established a trading company on Pigeon Island, Solomons. Irvine accepted the invitation, and she traveled to the Solomon Islands in 1998 to experience island life again. Her two youngest children were with her, and she returned to Faraway after one year.

Irvine answered a Gerald Kingsland advertisement in 1980 and became self-imposed castaways on Tuin, an uninhabited island between Australia and New Guinea. She published Castaway’s account in 1983. It was used later as the basis of the 1986 film. According to Irvine the film, which Nicolas Roeg directed, is more about the relationship of an older man with a young girl than about her experiences on the Island.

Irvine purchased Rumachroy in Scotland in 1984. She was a single mother who raised her children there. She moved to south-eastern Bulgaria in 2007.
