Here’s an early Christmas present for all Damian Lewis fandom to enjoy! Today Future & Found tweeted that Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory will be at the fourth annual Tufnell Stumble, an event to kick-off Christmas shopping by celebrating independent shops and local businesses of Tufnell Park and to support the efforts of those working hard to bring unique quality of handmade items. Damian and Helen are residents of Tufnell Park and whether local celebrities or not, they are involved in their community. In fact, Damian will be cutting the ribbon at Diverse, a womenswear shop located at 148 Fortess Road.
The ‘drinks and discounts’ occasion will be like a Pub Crawl for shoppers! Pass the mead as they say! The event, organized by Future & Found and Harrington & Squires, will take place Thursday, November 23 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.

Damian Films Scene With Kelly AuCoin on the Set of Billions
by Andrew Bullock for MailOnline – DailyMail – November 22, 2017
NEWS ALERT: What do we have here? It’s Dollar Bill and Axe together again! Our favorite actor was seen filming yet another scene in New York City while on the set of Showtime’s hit series Billions, alongside Kelly AuCoin who plays Dollar Bill Stearn.
On Monday he was seen shooting scenes with on-screen wife Malin Akerman on the streets of New York City.
But Damian Lewis swapped Malin for co-star Kelly AuCoin on Tuesday – and found himself unsure where to look as Kelly dropped his slacks in front of him. In what looked to be a comic scene in the American drama series, Kelly stood before Damian in just a pair of checked boxer shorts, on the street, in full view of anyone passing by. The scene appeared to feature some sort of tiff between Bobby and Kelly’s character Dollar, resulting in the awkward trouser drop.
The pair were seen shooting the scene outside of a parking garage, as Damian’s character Bobby Axelrod got into a navy Porsche at the end and drove away.

by Gingersnap – damian-lewis.com – November 21, 2017
Damian’s performance as Antony in Julius Caesar was a feature in the Metsitaba newsletter. Metsitaba: Meet, Speak, Move is a weekly tech newsletter based out of Ireland and aimed at improving public speaking skills. The newsletter features handpicked conferences, speaker profiles, resources and historical speeches highlighting the ancient art of rhetoric. And it seems Metsitaba’s September 13 newsletter section titled ‘Learn From the Best’ featured Damian’s performance as Antony in Julius Caesar, delivering the most iconic speech in all of Shakespeare, as a study in the use of emotional rhetoric (pathos).

Damian Spotted Filming ‘Billions’ Season 3 in New York City
by Gingersnap – damian-lewis.com – November 20, 2017
NEWS ALERT: Our favorite actor was caught on camera! Damian was seen filming in New York City on the set of Showtime’s hit series Billions, along with Malin Akerman who plays his television wife Lara Axelrod.
As Billions fans know, we saw these two at the end of last season grappling with a strained marriage due to Axe’s business decisions and personal choices.
To research the current filming timeline a bit, showrunner and co-creator Brian Koppelman shared a photo on Instagram of the first table read of Billions season three back on August 30.
On September 4, Page Six reported Billions cast and crew celebrated a season three kick-off event with a high-end whiskey tasting at Mario Batali’s Del Posto restaurant. And on September 28 it was reported Damian filmed an intense confrontation with Maggie Siff, who plays Wendy Rhoades, the in-house performance coach at Axe Capital.
All seemed quiet in October. Then, on November 14, Koppelman tweeted they were almost halfway through shooting season three. Billions continues to shoot the highly anticipated third season with reports of a 2018 release.
