Billions Location Guide Season 2: New York City and Beyond

by Damianista – Fan Fun With Damian Lewis – May 22, 2017

Billions has a distinct way of showcasing New York as a character on the show.  From its landmarks and city parks to its distinct neighborhoods, the city that never sleeps appears as a cast member.  Billions is taking over New York, the BIG film studio that it is, and shooting all over the place, from Manhattan and Queens to Brooklyn and The Bronx, and from Long Island to the northern suburbs. So this Billions Season 2 Location Guide is a loving tribute to our most favorite place on earth and a heartfelt thank you to the Billions show creators for giving us a love letter to the city. Let’s start the tour.

Designing His Own Philanthropy, Part 2 – May 18, 2017

Designing His Own Philanthropy, Part 2

by Lynda – guest blogger for Fan Fun With Damian Lewis – May 18, 2017

Part II of Lynda’s detailed survey into Damian’s generous heart. In case you missed Part I, it is here.

Programs benefiting children are near and dear to Damian’s heart. Since 2000, he has donated his valuable time serving as an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust. In 2008, in a brief street interview on London news, Damian spoke about the importance of The Prince’s Trust providing opportunities for at-risk young people who might not otherwise follow positive paths in life.

In June 2013, for the 30th anniversary event at the Centre, he and Helen, also an Ambassador, donated their time at the vocational center Enterprise Programme, which supports youth development, mentorships, self-confidence building, and entrepreneurship. There, they actively engaged with program participants, learning about the benefits of the program and offering encouragement.

Most recently, on February 9, 2017, Ambassadors Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory attended The Prince’s Trust “Invest in Futures” formal reception enjoying the company of Prince Charles himself.
