- Damian Lewis was a presenter at the awards ceremony for the The Prince’s Trust and RBS ‘Celebrate Success’ campaign. The awards took place tonight at the Odeon Theatre in London’s Leicester Square. Prince Charles attended the event as well as many other public figures including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Spacey.
» The Celebrate Success program recognizes the accomplishments of young people who have triumphed over disadvantages such as homelessness, drug addiction, poverty, and unemployment. The Daily Mail reported that Damian presented the RBS Community Impact Award to a team of unemployed young people who revived a Second World War memorial garden in Witton, Birmingham. Lewis said:
“Civilians who died in the World War II heavy bombing were often buried without a permanent tombstone. I think the young people from this Prince’s Trust team did an amazing thing, providing a crucial place for relatives to remember their lost ones.”

- A new character will debut on season 2 of Life starring Damian Lewis. According to the Watch With Kristin column on E! Online:
“They’re adding a new cop to the team named Captain Brian Tidwell. I’m hearing he’s a rough around the edges hottie. Apparently he’s got a thing for sports betting, whiskey and women. Sounds like the guy is a bit of a mess, but in the most endearing sort of way.”
