  • The Mail Online is featuring this article about actors Damian Lewis and Dominic West:

    Which old Etonian influenced Damian Lewis?

    Actor Damian Lewis, 38, says a great performance influenced him – Dominic West playing Hamlet at Eton, aged 17.

    West starred in the cult cop show, The Wire, as tipsy, womanising detective Jimmy McNulty.
