Catching Up With Damian Lewis at
Bobby Axelrod’s Favorite Pizzeria

Hope everyone is staying home and doing well in these surreal times we are living in. As I am longing for the good old days that I walked the streets of New York freely (which I so hope to do again sooner than later!), I would love to take you back to a cold evening in December 2018 when I caught up with Damian Lewis at Bobby Axelrod’s Favorite Pizzeria. ENJOY!

When I saw this tweet, I wanted to scream on top of my lungs “it is going to happen!” but of course I restrained myself 🙂 Now that everyone has seen the fantastic Episode 7, I can spill the beans! Join me!

This blog has had an interesting relationship with Billions. I launched the blog only two weeks before they started shooting the pilot in New York and I have been very lucky to catch up with Damian on the set once every season since. I do not know how many times you need to do a thing for it to become a tradition, but catching up with Damian on Billions set once a year certainly feels like a tradition now.

And when I saw Billions signs on Park Avenue on a Saturday evening in December, I thought I could continue the tradition. The signs hint that they might shoot at Eleven Madison Park where I could easily imagine Axe eat with other billionaires, and was happy that I could continue the tradition.

TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2018: From The UEFA Champions League to The World Cup

When asked about what he is watching on TV at Times Talks London back in 2014, Damian first talks about the usual suspects including Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Game of Thrones and then adds that on top of his recording list is ALWAYS Match of the Day. And many thanks go to Bookworm for reminding me of a Homeland Fun Fact about Match of the Day! Remember the scene in Homeland Pilot where Carrie notices Brody’s almost jazz-like finger tapping…

…it turns out Damian is finger tapping to Match of the Day tune there. You can hear the story from the man himself on the Commentary for the Pilot on Homeland Season 1 DVD and even hear Damian humming the tune for Claire

So, yes, Damian Lewis LOVES his footie! Continue reading “TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2018: From The UEFA Champions League to The World Cup”

TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2018:
Soccer Aid

Well, it’s THAT time of the year again! We have “Best of 2018” lists wherever we look: Best Books of 2018, Best Movies of 2018, Best Music of 2018 and so on… And, it is our utmost pleasure to jump on the “Best of” wagon with our TOP Damian Lewis Moments of 2018! As we take the last days of the year to revisit the wonderful year Damian has had personally and professionally, we very much hope to put a smile on your face. 

We don’t intend to rank the top moments as many “Best of” lists do. We pick the moments in which, we believe, Damian shines as a brilliant actor, a wonderful storyteller, a true gentleman, a serious athlete or just a guy who knows to have a good time and bring them to you.

We are kicking off TOP Damian Lewis moments 2018 today with Soccer Aid, a biennial British charity football game between two teams of celebrities and former professional players representing England and the Rest of the World. The event raises funds for UNICEF through ticket sales and public donations. Damian is no stranger to Soccer Aid that this year has marked his fourth appearance in the event. You can see his best moments from former games on Soccer Aid for Unicef You Tube Channel!  Continue reading “TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2018: Soccer Aid”

Damian Lewis at Eton College – Part I

“I remain sort of interested and slightly befuddled by my five years there. It’s such a rare existence. It feels a little bit like another time, another world.” – Damian Lewis, The Guardian, 2013

When we talked about Damian’s education, we talked about his early education at Ashdown House as well as his years at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. And we are now ready to dive into the five years, between ages 13-18, Damian spends at a school that has been around for almost six centuries and is very well-known for educating generations of aristocracy, prime ministers as well as the great George Orwell whose talking statue Damian voices 🙂

Yes, today, we give you Damian Lewis at Eton College. Continue reading “Damian Lewis at Eton College – Part I”
