Damian Lewis Called Me on My Smartphone
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | December 22, 2017
His voice. That distinguished, recognizable voice. Yes, THAT voice. Whether it’s soothing poetry reads, children’s bedtime stories or a narrated documentary, we know that voice! I’ve often said Damian could sell me a tube of toothpaste should he ever voice a commercial ad one day, whether Crest, Colgate, Rembrandt – hell, take your pick. And fans have often said he could read the phonebook to them and they’d listen.
Many of his U.S. fans think his British accent alone is dreamy, but combine that with his velvety tone, it’s Mozart to anyone’s ears – always with the right amount of inflection, emphasis and dramatic pause. And perfectly modulated to portray emotions of wrath, bewilderment or exhilaration. That is our beloved Damian Lewis.

George Orwell Returns to Loom Over BBC and Damian Voices the Talking Statue

George Orwell has returned to loom over the BBC. A larger-than-life statue of the author and former BBC employee has been unveiled outside Broadcasting House in London.
Orwell’s monument joins the regiment of talking statues, which can address any member of the public armed with a smart phone – his near neighbour, the sculpture of Ariel, by Eric Gill, over the main door of Broadcasting House, already talks back.
The Orwell statue is voiced by the actor Damian Lewis – who is, like the author, an Old Etonian. The school has also welcomed Orwell back, commissioning a replica of the portrait head to remind future generations of scholars that stroppy awkwardness is not necessarily a barrier to genius.
