TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2017: Damian’s Summer

You can ask, and rightly so, why we call Damian’s summer a Top Moment of the year. Well, because, Damian constantly worked during summer months in the last six years, Homeland 2011-2013, Wolf Hall 2014, and Billions 2015-2016. There were obviously weekend escapes, especially during Homeland shoot in North Carolina, which Helen makes sound wonderful in an interview with Evening Standard…

…still, there was always work to come back to at the end of the weekend. The fact that they started shooting Billions Season 3 in September this year made it possible for our guy to fully enjoy the summer with his family. Thus, Summer of 2017 certainly qualifies as a top moment of the year!

I will never forget the moment at The Goat stage door back in May when a fan asked Damian about what he would be doing between The Goat and Billions. Damian responded promptly:

“I am going to have a summer.”

Damian Lewis: “I am going to have a
summer.” And, he DID!

Happy Labor Day! It means this is the last chance for most of us to make that last trip before the summer ends… It also means we will have our Englishman back in New York shortly for Billions Season 3 shoot. It goes without saying we will follow the shoot very closely and think and talk about our hopes, wishes and fantasies about Season 3 in the coming weeks and months.

But, today, we will talk about Damian’s summer, the first summer he has fully enjoyed in the last six years. There were obviously weekend escapes especially during Homeland shoot in North Carolina which Helen makes sound wonderful in an interview with Evening Standard…

“We went to the Appalachian Mountains, skinny-dipping in the white waters, camping…”

…but, still, Damian has constantly worked all summer since he started shooting Homeland in spring 2011. So, when asked by a fan at The Goat stage door back in May about what he would be doing between The Goat and Billions, he responded promptly:

“I am going to have a summer.”

A Look Back to 10 Weeks of American Buffalo with Damian Lewis, Part II

In case you missed Part I, which is mostly about the actor, the play and the fans, you can read it here.

I, of course, have no idea about how stage actors organize their lives. I just know they work during prime time, that is, they WORK as we go out and eat and watch TV and go to the movies and thereby their routine should be different from us. I also remember Damian commenting on this very thing in the 5 Minutes with Damian Lewis interview:

So, I was really curious if life would sort of stop for our guy during his crazy 10 week long theater run with 8 performances a week — would he just shuttle between home and work?

Some actors may just do that, but not Damian Lewis. He is such an energetic guy that he filled those 10 weeks with a number of extra-curricular activities including one that is said to score 9 out of 10 in terms of stress levels.
