According to Wikipedia, a prop, formally known as theatrical property, is an object used on stage or screen by actors during a performance or 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 came up with an original or funny use of the prop, without using the prop the way it was intended. Let’s play Prop Improv with Damian Lewis.
Damian, if you are the new face of 50, then it’s going to be a beautiful year. Congrats on 50 amazing years! Here is our digital birthday e-card dedicated to you in pictures over the years – from sexiest and best suit to best beard or candid.
Our favorite guy said in a recent interview with The Telegraph that he is quite relaxed about turning 50. While we applaud him for being calm about his 50th, we can’t keep calm about such a milestone birthday!
So… Welcome to Damian’s week-long BIG 5-0 birthday party on Fan Fun. We kick off the festivities today with 50 Fun Facts about our favorite guy. Did you know about Damian’s first ever stage role? Or about his childhood nickname? How about his first screen crush or what he would have done if he had not been an actor? You can find the answers to all those and many more questions you may have about Damian below.
Damian Lewis was already an internationally known actor before Homeland. Yet, Homeland brought him big stardom, made him a household name, and it turns out some manhandling in the streets, too! Damian talksa bit about his post-Homeland fame in an interview with Buzzfeed: “It can be aggressive, that kind of adulation… People can go a little bit crazy, so there’s quite a lot of manhandling in the streets. Now I know what it must have been like to be Brad Pitt for an entire lifetime, ever since he did that scene in Thelma and Louise where he took his top off — I’m straight and that scene did it for me as well.”
Hmmm… So… you sort of know you have made it when someone tries to… I don’t know… pinch you on the street? 😀 But, seriously, when do you really know your show or your character has really arrived?
