Bobby Axelrod: The CASHmere King
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | May 4, 2018 (updated April 15, 2019)
You would think Damian Lewis and Bobby Axelrod couldn’t dress more differently but diving a little deeper, I found some commonalities. However, if we were to simplify, Damian typically dresses up with spurts of leisure whereas Axe dresses down with spurts of formality. Svelte Damian can wear a suit like a coat hanger and Axe can wear a hoodie like a dope Bankster. As Billions costume designer Eric Daman has said, “Damian looks like he just walked off a men‘s catwalk in Italy” so when “Axe does wear a suit, it’s like a punch to the face.”

Despite just 2% of the world’s population having crimson locks, they are over-represented in high-profile public roles.
But it might be too soon for them to have the last laugh, as it’s feared the redhead gene could die out by 2060.
A new book, Ginger Pride – A Red-Headed History Of The World, examines what makes red hair so special – and confirms they really are a unique breed.
“It started off as a look at historical figures with red hair, as I noticed there was a bit of a trend,” explained author and “proud ginger” Tobias Anthony.
“But I decided to widen it to look at other topics.
“One aspect I was really intrigued by was the myth-making, like accusations of being vampires and witches centuries ago.
“Redheads play a hand in almost every aspect of the world as we know it, from Vikings to royalty (by the time Queen Elizabeth I passed, Britain had seen 138 consecutive years of redheads on the throne) to medicine.
