Damian took to the stage to talk to Cure EB friends and supporters about fundraising initiatives to raise awareness for Epidermolysis Bullosa at the House of Lords on Friday, May 11, 2018. In addition, Professor McGrath and Professor Hovnanian spoke about Epidermolysis Bullosa research and developments in current clinical projects.

Damian is a proud patron of the charity Cure EB.org, formally known as Sohana Research Fund. Sohana Collins is a young teenager who was born with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB or EB), which means she lacks the protein that holds her skin together. Children with EB have extremely fragile skin and they are sometimes called “butterfly children.” For more information about the charity and organization, follow them on Twitter, visit them on Facebook or donate here.

DAMIAN LEWIS WAS a few minutes late, fresh off an afternoon of getting fitted for a prosthetic so he could play Rob Ford, the late mayor of Toronto, in an upcoming film.

It sounded awful, frankly, and, as he explained, a similar experience apparently once sent a big-screen martial-art tough guy into a blind panic.

Lewis, 47, was in New York to finish up the third season of Showtime hit, Billions. Shooting ran long due to the weather. What was supposed to be a six-month trip became seven going on eight, accruing “half a million” air miles flying back to London to see his wife and two kids during down time. The next morning, he had to be up at five o’clock to shoot a scene or two at Citi Field, and production would wrap for good in three days. He was ready to return home.

But first: dinner. We settle in at Kings Co Imperial, in Williamsburg, and get started with some fried mock eel, whatever that is. Lewis was ready to eat: “That’s the point of coming to Chinese restaurants, right? To get a bit of fried food.”
