What is it Like to Play Steve McQueen? – Oct 28, 2018

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.”

Damian Receives His Britannia Award – Oct 26, 2018

Our Brit Gets the Britannia

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 26, 2018

Our favorite, most talented actor of our generation (and quite the ham), Mr. Damian Lewis, received the well-deserved and long overdue BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Award for Excellence in Television this evening at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

The Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles’ highest accolades, recognizing both outstanding British talent and exceptional international artistry through their body of work. Damian is talented and exceptional, no doubt.

As Fan Fun with Damian Lewis writes, for more than a decade and a half Damian has enticed and intrigued audiences with highly complex, compromised, flawed characters he has brought to life on television, from steadfast Dick Winters, constipated Soames Forsyte, and quirky Charlie Crews to damaged Nicholas Brody, radical Henry VIII and currently, the ruthless Bobby Axelrod.

But where did it all begin? Damian’s first lead role in television was Lt. Neil Loughrey in Warriors (1997), a story about a group of British peacekeepers during the Bosnian war and ethic cleansing of 1993.

How great was it to honor Damian’s excellence in television full circle, as BAFTA TV award-winning actor Matthew Macfadyen, Damian’s Warriors co-star, presented him with the award tonight!

Walking the red carpet, Matthew was asked what his first impression of Damian was over 20 years ago,

“He’s very confident, the room sort of stops when he’s in it. This is a very nice thing to do, especially for Damian.”

In addition to Matthew Macfadyen, this year’s presenters also included Viola Davis, Kathleen Kennedy, Jon Favreau, Peter Farrelly, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Our Englishman is back on the East Coast from filming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in Los Angeles! He, along with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and Bee Shaffer (daughter of Wintour), attended the match of Roger Federer of Switzerland and sat in Federer’s players box at Arthur Ashe Stadium on day four of the U.S. Open.

The tournament was held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Complex, Thursday, August 30, 2018 in the Flushing Meadows neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

Here is the order of play:

Arthur Ashe Stadium

Day Session 

Johanna Larsson vs Angelique Kerber
Roger Federer vs Benoit Paire

Night Session 

Novak Djokovic vs Tennys Sandgren
Maria Sharapova vs Sorana Cirstea

Perhaps Damian is also in attendance to lend support to Maria Sharapova, who helped Bobby Axelrod work on his backhand shot in Billions season 3, episode 10 here.

Before the tournament began Damian hit the Blue Carpet for a fun interview by playing a match game – tennis player version. He was asked which Shakespearean character does Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Venice Williams and Rafael Nadal most closely align with. Find out his answers below and for the full video click here.

Yesterday fans reported seeing Damian and Helen at PBeach Restaurant in Carovigno, a town and comune in the province of Brindisi and region of Apulia, southern Italy. Among the guests like common folk, Damian and Helen partook in good food and drink as they enjoyed the ambiance of cocktail lounge music by Black and Gold. Today images surfaced of the couple and family on a boat trip to visit the sea caves of Polignano a Mare, a town on Italy’s southern Adriatic coast known for beaches like the white-pebble Lama Monachile and also known for the Ponte dei Lapilli cove that is nestled at the bottom of a cliff. And the vacation continued with a little bit of shopping in Lecce, Puglia.
