‘Billions’ Makes the Best TV Box Set List for Christmas
by James Jackson – The Times – December 8, 2017
Billions gets four out of five stars and is hand picked for one of the best television box sets of the year on the “Gift Guide: The Best TV Box Sets for Christmas.” Only five made the list. Billions joins the likes of Blue Planet II, Dissent & Disruption: The Complete Alan Clarke at the BBC, The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, and Victoria Series 1 and 2.
The Times writes, “For the alpha male in your life, this US drama (shown in Britain on Sky Atlantic) is a high-wire gift: it’s a high-finance romp that he will find wildly addictive; just hope that it doesn’t encourage his worse instincts. Depicting the strategic, but hate-fueled game of chess between a crooked billionaire hedge-fund boss played by Damian Lewis and the District Attorney on his case played by Paul Giamatti, it looks sleekly wonderful, leads you in unexpected directions and has much pumped-up macho dialogue. It’s great, power-mad fun.”
£8.99 season one and £19.99 season two

Billions of Recognition at the Critics Choice Nominations
by Gingersnap – damian-lewis.com – December 6, 2017
It seems every project Damian touches or is a part of turns to gold…or should I say, billions? Whether he’s receiving recognition for his work individually or collectively, he sure can pick them! And while we love when he’s in the spotlight receiving the recognition he deserves, we also know he is proud of his fellow colleagues who he gets to work with 6 months out of the year on the set of Billions.
Today two of his Billions co-stars were nominated by the Critics Choice Awards – Paul Giamatti for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal as U.S. District Attorney Chuck Rhoades – and Asia Kate Dillon for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for their portrayal as Taylor Mason, the whip-smart hedge fund intern of Damian’s ‘Bobby Axelrod’ on the show.
Asia spoke of their work with Damian on Billions back in June of this year at the Split Screens Festival. How does it feel to work with Damian Lewis? Fan Fun with Damian Lewis writes:
“I was not rattled. He is so generous and considerate and kind and compassionate and down to earth.”
Asia says Damian has the ability to totally engage with you but then when they say “roll” he just snaps into it, feeling and reacting truthfully to the moment in the imaginary circumstances of the world. Having a partner as generous as Damian makes the experience extraordinary, they say, because they can only be as good as their screen partner allows them to be.
“Because Damian has such an ability to listen and react truthfully in the moment, I’m able to be totally absorbed in that world and that is a great joy.”
So it comes as no surprise Asia is nominated for Best Supporting Actor when they work with the likes of Damian Lewis!
Back in June Damian tweeted support of his co-worker Asia:
