If Damian Had Billions, He’d Spend it on Immunotherapy- March 16, 2018

Parade Interview: From Coloring Books, Private Jets and a House in the South of France to Immunotherapy and Billions

by Walter Scott | Parade | March 16, 2018

What are Axe and Chuck fighting about?

There’s a clear moral vision, which is a libertarian one represented by Axe, who believes in the free market; and the moral position by Chuck that no one should be able to amass that much wealth, that [wealth like that] in itself is an immoral act. They both happen to be the best at what they do, and [being] king of the castle is important to both.

If you had that kind of money, how would you spend it?

Immunotherapy trials. A lot of it would go to charity, but I’d definitely have a private jet to avoid [the hassles] at the airports, and a house in the South of France.

Have you made red hair cool?

Red hair was always cool! In Britain, some redheads get teased as youngsters. I avoided it, mostly. I was lucky because I played sports. I’m going to recommend a coloring book called Colour Me Good Ginger. It’s filled with all your famous redheads, and I’m on the cover. Buy this book, and then go and buy an orange felt tip. You only need one color, orange, and then you paint us all in orange. It’s Ed Sheeran, Julianne Moore and Prince Harry, we’re all in there.

Easy Company

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.
