So we’d love to share some of our recollections of him being a dad on this Father’s Day.
Spot a certain ginger among a bunch of young actors playing in a celebrity football tournament around 1995/96!
It was Damian’s pal Jonsel Gourkan who tweeted the picture. Both he and Damian were playing football for Royal Shakespeare Company and it is clear from the tweet that the competition on the football field was real! Well, we all know Damian knows his footie, don’t we?
So how about traveling back to mid 1990s today and talk about young Damian being as serious about theatre as he was about football? Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis at the Royal Shakespeare Company”
