Damian to be Feted at BAFTA’s 2018 Britannia Awards – Sept 27, 2018

2018 Britannia Award for Excellence in Television  

by Peter White | Deadline | September 27, 2018

The British actor and producer will receive the Britannia Award for Excellence in Television at the event, which takes place on October 26 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Britannia Award is the highest accolade presented by BAFTA Los Angeles, and is a celebration of achievement honoring individuals and companies from the US, UK and beyond who have dedicated their careers or corporate missions to advancing the art-forms of the moving image. The Awards are presented annually at The British Academy Britannia Awards gala dinner, where peers and colleagues celebrate the work and accomplishments of the distinguished honorees and gather to celebrate the fruitful relationship between the UK and US industries.

He joins this year’s previously announced honorees including Steve McQueen, Cate Blanchett and Kevin Feige. Lewis recently completed production on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in which he plays Steve McQueen.

“Damian’s ability to completely transform himself into iconic characters on screen ranging from King Henry VIII to Bobby Axelrod is a testament to his genius. With his unforgettable performances he consistently draws audiences in and takes us on a gripping journey deep into the human psyche.” said BAFTA Los Angeles Chairman Kieran Breen. “We are delighted to celebrate his achievements and honor him with the Britannia Award for Excellence in Television at this year’s ceremony.”

The first Britannia Award was presented in 1989 to Albert R. “Cubby” Broccoli, pioneer producer of the James Bond films. Since the gala’s inception, the Britannia Awards ceremony has expanded to include multiple presentations celebrating living legends, rising British stars and internationally acclaimed colleagues.

Watch this year’s Britannia Awards live on Friday, October 26, 2018 from 5:45-11:55 p.m. Pacific time on BritBox. If you can attend in person at the Beverly Hilton Hotel located at 9876 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, tickets range from $300-$500 and can be purchased here.

Site Announcement: Fake Social Media Accounts – Aug 22, 2018

Red Flags to Look for With Imposter Accounts

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | August 22, 2018

SITE ANNOUNCEMENT

Hello Damian fans! We wanted to take a moment to announce recent developments that have been brought to our attention. Several fans have reported that Damian Lewis imposter accounts have been created on both Instagram and Twitter. And while that generally is not cause for concern, as they have been harmless in the past, these recent accounts are asking for money or pretending you can win a prize.  Under no circumstances would Damian or his representatives ask for donations (West Africa project or otherwise), nor would they offer fans a chance for a live chat or money prize for posting your favorite Damian photo by tagging him. Please keep in mind that the ONLY social media account for Damian Lewis is on Twitter as @lewis_damian. His legitimately-endorsed fan site is here at www.damian-lewis.com and the endorsed blog and team that runs both the fansite and the blog is www.fanfunwithdamianlewis.com.

Just remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you have any concerns, please report them to us here or on Instagram and Twitter at @FanFunDamian.

Kind Regards,
Fan Fun Team

An Unfinished Life – Einar (Robert Redford), a recovering alcoholic rancher who lives with his loyal pal Mitch (Morgan Freeman), gets an unexpected visit from his daughter-in-law, Jean (Jennifer Lopez), and granddaughter, Griff (Becca Gardner). Einar holds a grudge against Jean because he feels she’s responsible for his son’s accidental death, but he reluctantly lets her stay at the farm when he learns that she’s trapped in a violent relationship with Gary (Damian Lewis). Over time, they grow closer and try to heal their emotional wounds. To learn more about Damian’s role in the film, please visit here.

Dreamcatcher – Four young friends perform a heroic act and are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return. Years later the friends, now men, are on a hunting trip in the Maine woods when they are overtaken by a blizzard in which something much more ominous moves. Challenged to stop an alien force, the friends must first prevent the slaughter of innocent civilians by a military vigilante, then overcome a threat to the bond between them.

TRIVIA – Damian starred with Morgan Freeman in both movies, An Unfinished Life and Dreamcatcher. Damian and his Dreamcatcher co-star Timothy Olyphant have both been cast in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, due out July of 2019. Damian’s Dreamcatcher co-star Donnie Wahlberg also starred with him in Band of Brothers.
