Interview: Damian Lewis

by Edward Carden
Saturday, 25 May 2013

I was fortunate enough to secure an interview with actor Damian Lewis for my student newspaper. This is the result:

A household name both sides of the Atlantic, Damian Lewis came to international prominence starring in Band of Brothers, furthering his reputation in The Forsyte SagaLife and numerous stage plays. A consummate actor of theatre, film and television, his recent triumph in Homeland won him a Golden Globe and an Emmy. I tried to uncover a few pearls of wisdom from the most exciting British actor of the moment. Continue reading Damian Lewis: “I’m still trying to make it”, Epigram, May 20, 2013

Damian Joins Tufnell Park Campaign Demanding Safe Cycling Routes – March 3, 2013

Homeland Star Damian Lewis Joins Tufnell Park Campaign Demanding Safe Cycling Routes

by Tom Marshall – Islington Gazette – March 3, 2013

TV star Damian Lewis turned out to support calls for a new cycle route in Tufnell Park this week.

Mr Lewis, the Golden Globe-winning star of acclaimed US series Homeland, who lives in Tufnell Park with actress wife Helen McCrory and their two young children, showed his backing by joining supporters outside the Tufnell Park Tavern, Tufnell Park Road, on Saturday.

Campaigners want to get more youngsters biking on a daily basis by creating a sign-posted route, linking six schools in the area.

They have proposed a three-mile circular route, which also takes in six parks and playgrounds, and plan to stage a family-friendly Tour de Tufnell Park ride next weekend to raise awareness.

Father-of-two David Lincoln, 45, of Huddleston Road, who is leading the Tufnell Park Cycles to School campaign, said: “The campaign was partly inspired by watching videos of Dutch children cycling to school on YouTube. They show what it could be like. The council’s own research has shown that 35 per cent of children would prefer to cycle to school, but less than three per cent actually do. We know the main reason is that our roads don’t look and feel safe. We are staging the Tour de Tufnell Park along the route to raise awareness, but also because there are upcoming by-elections in two Tufnell Park wards, and we’re trying to influence the local candidates.”

Vogue Archive: No Place Like Homeland

February 2013

“Do you know, I think you might wear a suit better than any man I’ve ever met.” In the intimate and strangely forbidden confines of a lift at the National Theatre, Helen McCrory’s heavily made-up hazel eyes are drinking in her husband’s tall, tailored frame.

“Thank you,” he replies, faintly awkwardly, looking down at the same Tom Ford tuxedo he wore to accept the best actor Emmy award only last month. “Does this mean you want me to do all the washing-up for a week?” Continue reading No Place Like Homeland, British Vogue, February 2013

Knickers in the post and the rather racy past of the hottest Brit in Hollywood

Those weary souls, trudging through Heathrow after emerging, blinking, from the Los Angeles red-eye, rarely cut the most hale and hearty of figures.

But if a touch of the leading man gloss appeared to have come off Damian Lewis as he exhaustedly navigated the arrivals hall earlier this week, he had a good excuse.
