Damian Lewis: A Year at Home – Part I

While Damian is currently in NYC filming the rest of Billions Season 5, this past year has been different than any other for him (and for us all)! There was no filming, no theatre, no cheering for his beloved Liverpool at Anfield, no live concert or summer festival. But the good news is that the pandemic let Damian spend more time than ever with his family, let him make a lot of time for charity and let those of us on the other side of the pond catch our favorite actor in a few fabulous virtual performances! So it is my pleasure today to revisit the year Damian spent home. Continue reading “Damian Lewis: A Year at Home – Part I”

TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2020: Feed NHS

Well, it is THAT time of the year again! We have “Best of 2020” lists wherever we look: Best Books of 2020, Best Movies of 2020, Best Music of 2020 and so on… And, it is our utmost pleasure to jump on the “Best of” wagon with our TOP Damian Lewis Moments of 2020! As we take the last days of the year to revisit the 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.

That said – the moment with which we kick off this year’s top moments series is probably Damian’s personal best: Feed NHS. Continue reading “TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2020: Feed NHS”

From Charity to Sports to Theatre: We Know What Damian Lewis Did During The Covid-19 Lockdown! *UPDATED*

I am going to have a summer.

This is how Damian promptly responded to a lady who asked him at The Goat stage door back in May 2017 about what he would be doing between The Goat and Billions, whose shoot would not start until September. And that was his first full summer with family since Damian constantly worked summers between 2011 while he was shooting Homeland to 2016 when they started shooting Billions shoot in July.

And he was probably pleased with the results that this is the fourth summer in a row Damian has spent with family but also the first he spent mostly at home, like the rest of us, due to Covid-19 pandemic. Damian was filming Billions in New York when the pandemic arrived in the US. As they took a break from filming mid-March, he came back home, and has had a spring and summer bookended by two important Covid-19 activities.

Do It Like Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory: FeedNHS Campaign Raises £1M and Goes National!

We reported earlier that Damian, Helen, and Matt Lucas had partnered with LEON Restaurants to feed NHS workers. John Vincent, the Chief Executive of Leon, said he hoped he could bring together entrepreneurs across the industry to harness their resources. Vincent told the Guardian, “We have launched FeedNHS because we have been inundated with direct requests from NHS staff and from their families, asking us to feed them. These amazing people need us. They are already going without sleep. If they also don’t have good food, they will burn out faster, function less well and become ill themselves.” Continue reading “Do It Like Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory: FeedNHS Campaign Raises £1M and Goes National!”
