Well, it’s a challenge to catch up with Damian Lewis nowadays! In fact, he has collected quite a few frequent flier miles these couple of months on Transatlantic flights.
First, He was in LA for TCA Winter Press Tour for Wolf Hall, then he was in New York to shoot new Showtime Drama Pilot Billions. Then he was in Berlin for Queen of the Desert World Premiere at Berlinale 2015.

He has desired her for years! “I’ve known passion, Cromwell,” he says as they look at “Anselma” together, which he sends to Austin Friars as a gift later. “With Anne. I shake, do you understand, I shake.” Continue reading “Wolf Hall Episode 3: “Anna Regina””
We always talk about what we think about Damian Lewis and the characters he brings to life here, and I think, we have to leave the stage to Damian, from time to time, to see WHAT he thinks about… well, anything.
And why not start with what he thinks about his wonderful Wolf Hall co-star Mark Rylance?
When asked about his acting idols at the Hollywood Reporter Drama Actors Interview in 2012, Damian says:
