Billions Films at Whiteface – Nov 5, 2019

Wilmington, Whiteface, Adirondacks…Oh My!

by Griffin Kelly | Adirondack Daily Enterprise / NNY360 | November 5, 2019

We now know the backstory of this Lake Placid photo that Damian tweeted out on Halloween. The Adirondacks is becoming quite the popular filming spot for cable television.

Last Tuesday and Wednesday, the Showtime series “Billions” filmed scenes at the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center and along Veterans Memorial Highway, which leads to the top of the mountain. This was the area they shot Season 5, Episode 1 where Wags and Axe took a motorcycle ride, seemingly on the Alaskan-Canadian Highway. In Season 5, Episode 2, “Billions” filmed the Mike Prince conference at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York.

The drama series stars Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis as U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades and billionaire hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod, respectively. About to enter its fifth season, “Billions” revolves around a Wall Street tycoon (Lewis) using his upper-echelon status and scheming ways to make immense profits, while a lawyer (Giamatti) tries to expose him for insider trading.

Interim Wilmington town Supervisor Roy Holzer said he is a fan of the show.

The Inspiring Story of a Welsh Racehorse – March 16, 2019

Dream Horse: The True Rags-to-Riches Story of Dream Alliance

by Kathryn Williams | Wales Online | March 15, 2019

The champion racehorse horse Dream Alliance

We reported earlier that Damian would be staring in the upcoming film Dream Horse here. If you don’t know the story of South Wales champion racehorse Dream Alliance already, you should.

It’s an inspiring tale and now it’s being given the big screen treatment starring Homeland and Billions-star, Damian Lewis, and Hereditary and Muriel’s Wedding actress, Toni Collette.

Named Dream Horse, the film will shoot on location in Wales this spring and will also be directed by Welsh filmmaker Euros Lyn, famed for TV drama gold like Broadchurch, Happy Valley and Kiri.

Dream Horse will share the story of Dream Alliance who was bred and owned by a group of friends from a Cefn Fforest workingmen’s club.

From raising the steed on a slag heap in the Caerphilly borough to winning the Welsh Grand National – and slicing a tendon and undergoing stem cell therapy in between – it focuses on the true rags-to-riches story of Dream Alliance, who owners include Jan Vokes, her husband Brian and tax advisor Howard Davies.

Collette is due to play Jan Vokes, who along with her fellow syndicate members paid in £10 per week for the horse’s training, and Lewis will play Howard Davies.

Some Billions Cast Visit Michter’s Whiskey Distillery – Feb 26, 2019

A Barrel of Fun

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | February 26, 2019

Every Billions fan knows Michter’s Whiskey is a staple on the show. So why not step it up and visit the place that makes your cup runneth over?  It started last Saturday morning, February 23, 2019 when David Costabile (Wags), Kelly AuCoin (Dollar Bill Stearn), and Stephen Kunken (Ari Spyros) – all who play characters loyal to #TeamAxe on Showtime’s Billions – decided to take a trip to Michter’s Whiskey Distillery. David Costabile writes,

“You get on a plane and see if you can buy @michterswhiskey. Did we accomplish that?”

It seems they did just that! They toured the distillery, learned about the aging process, and sampled the product. I wonder if they brought back some whiskey for Bobby Axelrod?

According to their website, Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery is in downtown Louisville. Located in the historic Fort Nelson building on Main Street, this distillery is home to a legendary historic distillation system. Here you will learn about all of the extra steps Michter’s takes throughout the whiskey production process to pursue our goal of producing the greatest American whiskey, from barreling at a lower entry proof, to toasting our barrels before charring and heat cycling our warehouses. Following the tour, you will taste five different Michter’s expressions before heading up to the bar, where your visit will conclude with a cocktail demonstration and a small cocktail sample.

View all the photos of their trip and tour here.

Catching Up with Damian on the Set of Billions Season 4 – Feb 25, 2019

It’s Tradition Now

by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | February 25, 2019

I personally promised several of you to write about my conversation with Damian when I caught up with him on Billions set back in December as soon as I come back from vacation. I have been buried under teaching and committee work and meetings since I came back that I have just been able to find some time to sit and write. And while it may be a while ago and that I do sometimes not remember what I had for dinner last night, I vividly remember my conversation with Damian 😀

This blog has had an interesting relationship with Billions. I launched the blog only two weeks before they started shooting the pilot in New York and I have been very lucky to catch up with Damian on the set once every season since. I do not know how many times you need to do a thing for it to become a tradition, but catching up with Damian on Billions set once a year certainly feels like a tradition now.

The day I “met” Bobby Axelrod on Billions pilot set, February 3, 2015, source: Damianista

And when I saw Billions signs on Park Avenue on a Saturday evening in December, I thought I could continue the tradition. The signs hint that they might shoot at an ultra fancy restaurant where I could easily imagine Axe eat with other billionaires, and was happy that I could continue the tradition.
