Damian Lewis: Confidence Man, Emmy Magazine, May 5, 2016

Confidence Man

Damian Lewis — the charming Brit who brings his all to all-American roles is back on Showtime in Billions. As a perplexing one-percenter, ruthless player, or capital crusader? He’s hard to read, but always reeks of confidence.

Blue Blood, Blue Collar: Damian Lewis’ Transformations, The New Yorker, January 18, 2016

The actor probes his characters, but his method isn’t Method. “I’m Damian Lewis, not Daniel Day-Lewis.”

At a corner table in the dining room of Marea, a restaurant on Central Park South, the conversation was smooth but disputatious. Three men in suits were drinking red wine and eating pasta that cost thirty-four dollars a serving. One of them was a hedge-fund manager, a famous short seller. Another was the financial journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin. The third man, in from London, was the actor Damian Lewis.

Sorkin had made the introduction. The hedge-fund manager and Lewis were doing most of the talking. “Does your business have a societal benefit?” Lewis asked. He wanted to know what made a hedge-fund manager more than “a paper shuffler.”

The hedge-fund manager said that he and his peers basically function as market-based regulators—that they have a financial incentive to expose wrongdoing. Sorkin had set up other audiences for Lewis with financial machers. One of them urged Lewis to consider an underperforming company with entrenched management or a sclerotic board: an activist investor, even if he came in and cut things and fired people—well, that’s capitalism.

Damian Lewis: On Why He Loves the Area and Kentishtowner – Sept 18, 2015

Damian Lewis: On Why He Loves the Area and Kentishtowner

by Larushka Ivan-Zadeh – Kentishtowner – September 18, 2015

Yesterday I interviewed Damian Lewis, star of Wolf Hall and Homeland, for Metro. What did I learn? That he has moved out of his house (formerly Hugh Laurie’s) in Tufnell Park. But only to get it decorated.

What else? That he has no plans to join the infamous ‘Primrose Hill set’.  “No, I think we’ve decided we like where we are,” he told me from New York, where he’s shooting Billions, a new TV series from the makers of Homeland (out in January).

But perhaps most importantly, I learnt that he’s a fan of this very publication. Remarking that I lived locally, he said simply, “Do you write for the Kentishtowner? You should.”

When I asked if he was a fan, he said a definitive “yes.”  So look, here I am.

Back to Damian: “I’ve lived in Kentish Town and Camden for most part of the last 10 years,” he continued, and he’s not lying: he’s oft spotted shopping in Parliament Hill Farmer’s Market, having a pint at The Junctionperusing the wetfish stand at Jonathan Norris, or tramping round the Heath with his wife, the actress Helen McCrory and kid.

“It’s a really lovely neighbourhood full of interesting and smart people who do a whole host of different jobs,” he said.

Couldn’t put it better myself.
