We Celebrate Damian Lewis as a Dad on Father’s Day

Damian Lewis is a fantastic actor. A generous philanthropist. He is a skilled player on the football field. And we have seen again in the recent “Such a Night” video that he can definitely sing.

So we’d love to share some of our recollections of him being a dad on this Father’s Day.
