New interview, Soccer Aid broadcast times, ‘Will’ update


  • The Times Online has a nice little interview with Damian Lewis:

    I used to be a bit of a party animal. These days I can’t go out relentlessly and be a father as well. I have two children, aged 3 and 2, so instead I tend to do silly dad things such as going on 150-mile bike rides with my friends just to prove that we can do it. We did a ride in the Cambrian Mountains and Brecon Beacons over three days at Easter out of a sense of adventure, but we’ve all been in physiotherapy ever since.

    Read the rest at the Times Online.

  • Soccer Aid 2010 will broadcast on ITV1 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Soccer Aid: Extra Time – with highlights, analysis and player reaction – will broadcast on ITV4 from 10:00pm to 11:00pm following the match. Click here for more program details.

    Irons, Damian beautifully dressed in a plum coloured jersey (gorgeous with his
    hair) over a white shirt and light grey trousers, and totally exqisite plain
    black shoes – how can one rapsodise over a pair of men’s shoes? – Irons
    flamboyant in fancy leather jacket and huge laced up boots.” Click here at the Yahoo! Group for the post.

    (occasional news), Damian taught her to appreciate film, they go to the
    theatre a lot, they are not planning to live in the States (not for now
    anyway), children keeping them busy, how much she admires Damian as an actor
    (and not just saying that because she’s married to him, she said).” Thanks to Tina for the report! 🙂

  • More on Damian’s role in Band of Brothers by Phil Bilbrough in Advertising.Scoop.co.nz :

    One of the central characters (Band of Brothers is about Easy Company, American Paratroopers in WWII Europe) is Major Richard D. Winters, played by Damian Lewis. He is a handsome, heroic, quietly spoken, introspective, respected leader of men. …

    So Major Richard D. Winters is a hero’s hero. And Damian Lewis is the world’s best actor. Why? Because Maj. Winter (so far) is a man without ANY flaws. His men love him – follow him into some very sticky situations and occasionally die. Yet Damian Lewis can make this perfectly perfect guy almost compelling even when his character isn’t running into battle, which is about 40% of the mini series.
