Damian Lewis and His Welsh Roots

happystdavidsday

Happy St. David’s Day, everyone!

Today is the Feast Day of St. David, the patron saint of Wales. Thus, in honor of the day, why not talk about Damian and his Welsh roots?

HereĀ isĀ Damian talking about himself as a “Londoner” and “British”Ā at Times Talks London.

So far so good… Damian is proud of his Welsh roots, and we’re talking about Wales today!Ā But… what do I talk about when I talk about Wales?

Well… I can drop a few Welsh celebrity names like a pro…Sir Anthony Hopkins,Ā Catherine Zeta-Jones,Ā Richard Burton, Gareth Bale… and, of course, theĀ wonderful Denise Salway aka the “Knitting Witch”Ā that creates the wonderful “Wolf Hall in Wool” collection and who made, for Damian, a special personalizedĀ gift!

According to Wikipedia, a prop, formally known as theatrical property, is an object used on stage or screen by actors during a performance orĀ production. In practical terms, a prop is considered to be anything movable or portable on a stage or a set, distinct from the actors, scenery, costumes, and electrical equipment. Based on that definition, clothing, shoes, hats or scarves would typically be out of play, but we are going to bend the rule just a bit and allow it! Interesting enough, consumable food items appearing in a production could be considered props, too.

So you know what all this means? It’s game time! Name three stage or screen props you would most like to own from the set of any of Damian’s theatre, film or television series and explain why. As an added bonus, some of us cameĀ up with an original or funny use of theĀ prop, without using the prop the way it was intended. Let’s play Prop Improv with Damian Lewis.
