Cleo at The New Yorker Festival, Fan Fun with Damian Lewis, October 7, 2015

Cleo at New Yorker Festival 2015

After the interview with Lauren Collins on Saturday, the second event for Damian Lewis at this weekend’s New Yorker Festival was a play reading of Lawrence Wright’s Cleo, with Damian Lewis playing the part of Richard Burton to Lily Rabe’s Elizabeth Taylor.

We’re all pretty familiar with “le scandale” that brewed behind the set of the filming of the most expensive production of its time, right? Lawrence Wright’s script gives us a story built around the events of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor’s combustible love affair during the filming of Hollywood blockbuster Cleopatra.

Damian Lewis Attends Cheltenham Literature Festival – Oct 12, 2014

Damian and Helen Attend Cheltenham Literature Festival

by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | October 12, 2014

Damian loves and supports poetry and so do we! One poetry project he has actively supported is The Love Book, a brilliant collection of classic and contemporary love poems that vary from Shakespeare to E.E. Cummings to Maya Angelou coming together in a book as well as in an app. And it is our utmost pleasure to take you along to The Love Book event we were extremely lucky to attend at Cheltenham Literature Festival.

The reading took place in Times Forum, a huge 1400-seater. There was a giant screen so everyone could comfortably see the entire performance. The couple would stand on opposite sides of the stage and read.
