Damian appears to be on a break from filming Showtime’s hit television series Billions in New York as he has been spotted in London all last week into this week.

We reported yesterday that Damian and Helen attended the Temperley London Fashion show on Sunday.

And today  London Fashion Week continues as the power couple head to Erdem’s fashion show arm-in-arm, despite the drizzly weather as they make their way to the National Portrait Gallery for the catwalk event.

The independent British designer Erdem Moralioglu, a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle, has hired out the National Portrait Gallery to showcase his work .

Established in London in 2005 the designer ready-to-wear brand, ERDEM, “has come to be synonymous with versatile yet powerful femininity.”  Founder Moralioglu trained at the prestigious Royal College of Art in London where he remained to launch the brand following his graduation. Known for his use of experimental textiles, vibrant prints, and detailed craftsmanship, ERDEM has created a beautiful world of the delicate mixed with the bold.

Rake Magazine Interview: A True Leading Man – Feb 15, 2018

In an exclusive interview with The Rake, Damian Lewis tells Tom Chamberlin why we all, in spite of ourselves, love an anti-hero.

Lewis – from Life to Homeland, Wolf Hall to Billions – has become the finest purveyor of modern drama’s moral ambiguities. In fact, writes Tom Chamberlin, if you can think of an actor who has influenced our golden age of television more than him, speak up…

Among the more ambiguous archetypes of the celluloid age, that of ‘leading man’ is perhaps the least defined. Far from the specific criteria of commedia dell’arte and melodrama, in which the characters are demarcated (bad guy = black hat and moustachioed, etc.), the leading man is purely subjective. Arguably he is the origin of celebrity, pulling screen presence into the limelight of fame. But the list of leading men over the years has shown that no colour, size, hair, manner or cultural identity has ever had dominion over the sobriquet. That is until Damian Lewis entered the fray. For Lewis is a man who, above anything else, is an exemplar of leadership and integrity at a time when the acting world could use a dose of it.

Damian Lewis takes charge of rooms when he enters them. Photoshoots with celebrities are often led by either the photographer, who squeezes every image he or she can from the available time; the stylist, whose job is to make sure a well-curated variety of clothes appears in the magazine; or the publicist, who tends to be the powerbroker. The ‘talent’ can often struggle through the day (except, of course, former Rake cover subjects), regarding the experience as a necessary nuisance. Not so with Mr. Lewis.

Martin Gray in The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? at Theatre Royal Haymarket, London

Goat love; we’ve all been there. OK, maybe not a goat, but what about an attraction to a particularly cute hamster? No? What about your pet dog? Not even after one Guinness too many? OK, we’ll stop, but there’s a point to be explored – about the destructive, uncontrollable nature of human sexuality – and Damian Lewis’ turn last year as a starchitect looking into the abyss of, yes, a goat obsession, staged at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, raised many uncomfortable truths. Starring opposite the electric Sophie Okonedo, Lewis’ performance captured a man’s terror at realizing he is a sexual outlaw trapped in a society where sex, love and marriage have strict, delineated codes.

Official nominations will be announced March 6th. The 2018 Laurence Olivier Awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. For more information, please visit the Official London Theatre website.
