Vote in the James Bond Poll – Aug 20, 2018

Who is Cornwall’s New James Bond? 

by Shannon Hards | Cornwall Live | August 20, 2018

The identity of Daniel Craig’s replacement as 007 is a hot topic at the moment. And given that some of the front-runners likely to take on the role have huge links to the county – the locals thought it would be interesting to find out who Cornwall wants as the next Bond. Idris Elba, Aidan Turner, Tom Hardy, James Norton, Eleanor Tomlinson, Cillian Murphy and Damian have ties to Cornwall in some fashion. In mid-August last year Damian and Helen were spotted in the Padstow area enjoying a drink at the Rock Inn and in July of this year the Lewis-McCrory family attended the Port Eliot festival. Read more about those connections and vote in the poll here.

20 Actors You Forgot Were British – Aug 19, 2018

England is His Homeland

by Mary Sollosi | Entertainment Weekly | August 19, 2018

There have been a number of British actors that have done a phenomenal job convincing movie and television audiences that they are American with their spot-on accents. Of course we here at damian-lewis.com know Damian is British, but many new fans are still shocked to learn he is a native from across the pond. Perhaps it’s because Damian has been known to stay in his American persona both on and off the set, even while grocery shopping or guest appearing on a talk show, to some degree. Nevertheless, Damian has made Entertainment Weekly’s top 20 actors you forgot were British.

#11 – Damian Lewis

Don’t be fooled by his flawless American accent; the Billions star’s real Homeland is England.

Billions Season 4 Update – Aug 15, 2018

Billions Just Got Richer…Or In This Case, Cheaper?

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | August 15, 2018

Kelly AuCoin, who plays Dollar Bill Stearn in Showtime’s Billions, has been promoted to a series regular for season four. It seems both the executives and writers are not uncertain about this latest development and when Damian heard the news, he tweeted:

AuCoin’s ‘Dollar’ Bill Stearn is a loyal Axe Capital employee who likes to play fast and loose with SEC regulations, has two families (and subsequently two minivans), owns a dry cleaning business on the side and supports up-and-coming baseball players so he can gain back his returns when they make it to the big league. You can read more about Dollar Bill Stearn, the cheapest man in America, here.
