Raybans: He’s Got the Look
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 28, 2018
During a recent red carpet interview with Variety, Damian was asked what is was like to play Steve McQueen. He stated,
“It’s scary because it’s a little bit like saying ‘Yea, sure, I’ll play Elvis.’ You know, people have views, people have views about that. But I…hopefully we’ve had a good stab at it.”
When asked how he prepared for the role he responded,
“Same way I prepare for everything. Endless material, video material, film material, literature, dialect coaching, physicalizing him, getting into his body and then….
and a pair of Raybans?
“And a pair of Ray…there was a pair…maybe, maybe. I’m not going to give anything away at this point.”

In February of this year Jay Bobbin tweeted this teaser that he had recently interviewed Damian.
The article was finally released today, and how apropos is it that Damian describes his Billions character Bobby Axelrod as “…a big family man. He really loves his wife and adores his kids and will do anything for them,” yet as we saw in episode 6 just last Sunday, Bobby is contemplating taking a plea for Wendy’s sake, seemingly abandoning his wife, children, family and career – something Axe experienced himself with his own father.
