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.
After playing Hamlet at Eton – Lewis was a contemporary – his English master said he should consider ‘doing this as a job’.
