Wolf Hall meets Shades of Grey

Damian Lewis and Jamie Dornan talk Golf

At the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland this past October, we had a chance to talk golf with a couple of actors: Jamie Dornan, who stars in the uber-hyped movie “Fifty Shades of Grey,” scheduled for release in February; and Damian Lewis, who starred in the hit TV series “Homeland” and the award-winning World War II miniseries “Band of Brothers.” Dornan, 32, is from Holywood in Northern Ireland, the same hometown as world No. 1 Rory McIlroy. Lewis, 43, is from London. Dornan and Lewis played together in the pro-am portion of the Dunhill.

GD: Who were your golf idols growing up?

Lewis: Seve Ballesteros, obviously, was always very exciting to watch when I was a kid. Sir Nick Faldo was winning a lot for us at the time. Sandy Lyle for his 7-iron out of a fairway bunker to win the Masters in ’88. I liked a lot of the big players.

Dornan: Darren Clarke was huge for me. He’s from where I come from, and a few more boys from that part of the world are flying the flag now like Padraig Harrington, who I played with today, which was an absolute treat.
