Damian Lewis Looking Forward to Southend Show and Chats About His Spring Tour and His Essex Home

Setting Off on Tour

by Emma Palmer | Essex Life Magazine | March 2024 Issue

He may be a Hollywood movie star, but A-list actor Damian Lewis has closer ties to little old Essex than you might think.

In an exclusive interview with our sister title, Essex Life magazine, the 53-year-old, known for his roles in Homeland, Billions, Band of Brothers and Wolf Hall, revealed he owns a house in a picturesque part of north Essex.

In the March edition of the magazine – on sale now – the actor, who is preparing to hit the stage at the Palace Theatre in Southend this month, told how he felt “very lucky” to have his house in north Essex, near to the Suffolk border.

He said: “I love Essex, of course I do.

“I love the coastline and the coastal towns like Mersea and Southend, such lovely places to visit.

“Essex is special in the sense it’s very much an extension of the East End with a cockney culture but also has its own identity. It’s the land of Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable after all. I feel very lucky that I have a house in one of the most beautiful parts of Essex.”

Damian’s 8-date tour kicks off in early March and will see the star performing all of the original songs from his album Mission Creep, but he’ll also be sharing brand new material destined for his second album. He and his band will be starting with a performance in East Sussex at the Trading Boundaries on Friday, March 8 and revealed plans for a second album, set to enrich his discography with new sounds and stories. Fans can expect an intimate experience, with Lewis performing songs from both his debut and the anticipated second album.

53 Song Dedications for Damian Lewis’s Birthday

Tunes for the Music Man

by Gingersnap | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | February 11, 2024

Today Damian Lewis turns 53! Happy Birthday Damian, from the Fan Fun with Damian Lewis Team and all the fandom around the world! Every January the Team begins contemplating what we can do differently to celebrate Damian’s birthday in February and year after year we strive to be creative and unique. In 2022 we baked and decorated 51 Birthday Cakes and in 2023 we mixed 52 Celebratory Cocktails in honor of Damian. We’ve been bakers and we’ve been mixologists – now it’s time to enter the DJ booth, lay down some tracks and scratch out those beats on the deck. With the release of his debut album Mission Creep and recent UK tour, what better way to continue that music theme than to celebrate Damian’s 53rd birthday with 53 song dedications!

We planned, conspired and mobilized the fandom in the back channels of Twitter, Instagram or Facebook DM’s, as well as e-mail, to accomplish this secret project. With our idea set in motion the goal remained the same…to bring a smile to Damian’s face. The task was simple: choose a song that reminds us of Damian or reminds us of one of our favorite characters he has played. It could also be a song we wished he would cover at one of his music gigs or hope to hear on his next album. Any song for any reason.

Damian Lewis Spotted Enjoying a Pint While On Break From Filming Wolf Hall

A Royal Toast

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com  | January 16, 2024

Damian was spotted enjoying a pint with co-star Thomas Brodie-Sangster at The New Inn in West Coker, South Somerset last week while on break from filming Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light nearby.

The BBC drama recently returned to Montacute House, which has been closed to the public from Tuesday, January 2 through Friday, January 19, 2024 to allow camera crews to prepare some scenes for filming.  The 16th-century Elizabethan mansion and gardens is near Yeovil, which are owned by the National Trust. Motacute House is used to represent Greenwich Palace and its grand exterior makes for an stunning background for the drama’s key scenes. Both Damian (playing Henry VIII) and Thomas (playing Rafe Sadler) have been spotted at the stunning National Trust property as filming nears completion.

It was a fantastical evening as Damian and friends unveiled the Advent window ‘A Fairy Tale of New York’ on the eve of the Winter Solstice for Sir HvH Arts Foundation, a charity organization that Damian is the Patron of, and Helen McCrory was the former Patron.
