When he was asked about how his favorite member of the Royal Family was a few years ago, Damian did not even hesitate for a moment:
Queen Elizabeth II, the second longest reigning monarch in history, passed away last week. Even if you are not a student of history, just knowing that her first Prime Minister was born in 1874 (Winston Churcill) and her last was born in 1975 (Liz Truss) is quite enough to recognize what a remarkable life and reign she had. I understand that emotions are still high about her passing, but the Queen’s life is certainly one to celebrate. And Damian has paid a tribute to the late Monarch on Twitter sharing a sweet moment he had with her once.

“I don’t really believe in judging art. But I thought I’d show up just in case. Turned out alright.” – Damian Lewis
We have Prime Time Emmy Awards Ceremony this coming Monday. As much as I believe it is a crime that we have not had stakes at the Emmys for several years now, I will just keep calm and carry on taking us all back to 2012 Emmy Awards and re-live Damian’s BIG MOMENT!
Well, it all starts with the nomination. Homeland scores BIG in Prime Time Emmy nominations – it is not just a record number of nominations for Showtime and but also the highest for any freshman series that year!
Entertainment Weekly asks Damian how he feels about his nomination just after the Emmy nominations are announced.
“I’m really thrilled. Over the moon. I was asleep. So I was just getting some extra zzzzs and I woke up with my phone buzzing next to my head.”

I cannot believe it has already been a month since the magical evening in London because I am still under the spell of the Ginger Elvis who ruled the stage with his originals as well as some great covers! So, one more time, I want to take everyone into that intimate music hall with me: here is every single detail (a few more details added!) I remember from Damian’s fantastic first gig at Omeara London!

Helen McCrory would have been 54 today. While I am old enough to know that life is unfair, I still cannot wrap my head around her passing and the sadness Damian, their kids and Helen’s parents and siblings had to go through during her illness and her untimely death.
I have always known that Helen was a brilliant actress but now I also know she was such a class act in life and death. The way she chose to live, bravely, focusing on her family, work and charity rather than on her illness and death, is a lesson for us all about how to live and die with dignity. She was such a bright star that I know she will keep on living through her brilliant work and the two wonderful children she raised with her beloved husband. And we want to celebrate this phenomenal woman and her life today.

We have just learnt that our favorite guy was made a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in Queen Elizabeth’s annual birthday honours. This very well-deserved honor comes for Damian’s services to drama and to charity especially for initiating Feed NHS, a campaign Damian ran with Helen that raised more than 1 million pounds to provide food for NHS workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We send our heartfelt congratulations to Damian! What he and Helen did for Feed NHS is exemplary citizenship. Helen would surely be made a CBE herself if she were with us today. And we know she’ll smile from above as Damian accepts his. We love them and we are so proud of them. So why don’t we go back to March 2020 today and visit Damian and Helen launching and managing Feed NHS along with their partners?
