  • More on Damian’s role in Band of Brothers by Phil Bilbrough in Advertising.Scoop.co.nz :

    One of the central characters (Band of Brothers is about Easy Company, American Paratroopers in WWII Europe) is Major Richard D. Winters, played by Damian Lewis. He is a handsome, heroic, quietly spoken, introspective, respected leader of men. …

    So Major Richard D. Winters is a hero’s hero. And Damian Lewis is the world’s best actor. Why? Because Maj. Winter (so far) is a man without ANY flaws. His men love him – follow him into some very sticky situations and occasionally die. Yet Damian Lewis can make this perfectly perfect guy almost compelling even when his character isn’t running into battle, which is about 40% of the mini series.

  • Damian will be taking part in the The Prostate Cancer Charity’s Tour Rides again in September. From the RoadCyclingUK site:

    “Cycling through London with all the roads closed and seeing all the sights was too good to resist. It was fabulous – feeling like a pro for a second. Anyone taking on this challenge in 2010 will also be cycling to show their support for a great cause. I feel passionate about supporting The Prostate Cancer Charity in improving the lives of the 35,000 men, and their families, who are affected by the disease every year.”
