  • Congratulations to Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory on their second wedding anniversary on July 4th! ➡

  • Helen McCrory is scheduled to attend the July 7th London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (and, who knows, she may bring her husband Damian Lewis with her!) The premiere will start at 6pm BST on July 7th and there will be a live webcast starting at approximately 5pm BST.

    There’s no information at this time indicating whether Helen (and Damian) plan to attend the filim’s New York City premiere on July 9th.

    This review in the Mail Online says:

    What lifts these Harry Potter films, and this one in particular, is the way producer David Heyman and his team have cast top notch British actors. We get double trouble from Helen McCrory and Helena Bonham Carter as wicked siblings Narcissa Malfoy and Bellatrix Lestrange, Maggie Smith as Minerva McGonagall, Alan Rickman as Serverus Snape, and Robbie Coltrane as Rubeus Hagrid. They are
    the best of our great British stock.

  • The June 2009 issue of Movie Scope Magazine features an extensive interview with Helen McCrory. A portion of the article is currently available online that includes these comments about Helen:

    Helen McCrory is, without doubt, one of Britain’s most powerful acting talents. Her acting range seems boundless. Helen has a very rare combination of personal qualities that she brings to her acting—she is confident and assertive but also has a huge amount of compassion, which allows her to lace her characters with a sense of vulnerability as well as strength.

    Helen is also cited as an example of Britain’s phenomenal acting talent in this interview with director Robin Sheppard.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Easy Company veteran Darrell “Shifty” Powers who passed away on June 17, 2009. Thank you to Linda from the MajorDickWinters.com site for sharing the sad news.

  • Alan Sepinwall, television critic for the Star Ledger, has launched a series of discussion articles on “Revisiting Band of Brothers”; the Emmy-winning HBO World War II mini-series starring Damian Lewis as Major Richard Winters. Click here for the first article about episode one “Currahee” that includes these comments about Damian’s performance:

    The brilliance of Lewis in this is that he finds a way to make the ordinary aspects of Dick Winters seem extraordinary, rather than trying to play him as an overtly extraordinary man. He’s not a superhero, he doesn’t give rah-rah speeches or lose his temper or in other ways act larger-than-life; he’s just a regular guy who turned out to be ideally suited to irregular circumstances, and Lewis embraces that aspect of the character. Just watch how quietly and simply Lewis plays the scene where Sobel tries to get Winters to accept his assigned punishment rather than face a court-martial. There’s never any doubt that Winters is going to take this all the way if he has to, and yet there aren’t any theatrics about it; he’s just sure of the rightness of his position, and of his ability to prevail over Sobel, and he’s going to see this thing through.

    I especially love the way Lewis plays the scene at the end where Winters helps each of his men to their feet as they get ready to board the plane for their mission over Normandy. This idea that the men were so weighed down by their gear that they had to lie on the tarmac, one on top of the other, and be pulled up — like a kid being helped off the grass by his father — is one of the series’ many “truth is more interesting/moving than fiction” moments, and the serene, paternal look on Lewis’ face is just beautiful. Sobel’s contribution to the success of Easy Company is clearly in question, while Winters’ was not, and a moment like that, and the way the men look back at Winters, makes it clear as to why.
