  • PBS has a new site for The Best of Masterpiece Theatre which features Damian Lewis. The executive producer of the program has some nice things to say of Damian:

    “…Damian Lewis was another great interview. People know him best as
    Soames in The Forsyte Saga. Soames is a very stiff, determined, harsh
    and rather insular character. But Damian Lewis is a lovely man. He
    had just had a new baby come into his life a few weeks earlier — and
    he had that new father glow. Damian has a new series coming up next
    season on NBC…”

    The program will broadcast on most PBS stations
    around March 4th – check your local listings!

  • The February 24, 2007 issue of Radio Times includes a story about “TV’s Top 10 Versatile Actors”; thanks to Hazel for sharing their comments about Damian Lewis:

    “The flame haired old Etonian might seem ready made for parts as splendid chaps with stiff upper lips and, indeed he has appeared in uniform several times, but on every occasion he’s confounded the stereotype. After a spot as a soldier in Warriors he was cast by Steven Spielberg as Major Richard Winters in Band of Brothers and he carried the piece. He then turned antihero, fronting the remake of the Forsyte Sage as the dastardly Soames, before segueing straight into a satirical Jeffrey Archer. Since then he’s escaped from Colditz, played Tony Blair, guest hosted Have I got News for You and done both Poliakoff and Shakespeare”.
