World Premiere and Red Carpet
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 7, 2022
A Spy Among Friends starring Damian Lewis received its World Premiere at BFI London Film Festival Friday, October 7, 2022. Damian spoke with press for interviews and walked the red carpet before the screening. Episodes one and two of A Spy Among Friends premiered at 6:30 p.m. on screen one at Curzon Mayfair to a sold out crowd. The drama will consist of a total of six episodes. Not only is Damian in one of the lead roles, but he also served as a producer. A Spy Among Friends is set to air in November 2022 on the new streaming platform ITVX in the UK. US release pending.
In 1963, MI6 agent Kim Philby (Guy Pearce) was revealed to be a KGB spy in one of the most humiliating chapters of Britain’s involvement in the Cold War. This adaptation of Ben Macintyre’s best-selling book explores the impact of this notorious betrayal of the British establishment. It focuses specifically on what happened during the final meeting between Philby and his close friend and fellow MI6 agent Nicholas Elliott (Damian Lewis), in the days leading up to Philby’s defection.
Outstanding performances from Lewis, Pearce and Anna Maxwell Martin bring to life the layered and deeply intelligent script by showrunner Alexander Carey (who previously worked with Damian on Homeland). Part gripping spy thriller in the Le Carré mould, part incisive dissection of the British class and power structures still in place today, A Spy Among Friends is, above all, a moving portrait of friendship and betrayal.
The 66th annual festival took place in venues across the UK capital beginning Wednesday October 5 and will go through Sunday October 16, 2022. Video clips:

Ringside: Boxing For The Mind, Body and Soul
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 16, 2022
Damian attended Head Guard’s “weigh-in and charity auction” on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 at London’s Groucho Club in the Gennaro Room. Head Guard is a non-profit organization with a mission to empower women and children who have experienced trauma in the form of sexual assault, trafficking, domestic violence, war or life-altering abuse. The charity piloted the program in Iraq in 2019 at a refugee camp so that young women and their boxing sisters would be self-sufficient once they left. A small local charity in Iraq called The Lotus Flower then paid the women to coach as they recognized the huge benefits it had on the mental health of the women within the camp.
Although the auction is closed, you can view the catalogue here. The evening’s weigh-in was a precursor for the charity’s next mission, a boxing match fundraiser and fight night with Damon ‘The Showman’ Bryant (trained by Cathy ‘The Bitch’ Brown) to be held October 21, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the indoor arena and leisure complex York Hall in Bethnal Green to help more young women in Nepal, along with the Sustainable Foundation.

Damian seen at Keane 4K screening on Saturday, August 20, 2022. Blue suede shoes with purple socks and all 🙂 Watch the complete Q&A video below and see more photos from the event in our gallery here.
Moderated by Christopher Abbot, Damian and director Lodge Kerrigan joined viewers for an in-person Q&A on Saturday, August 20, 2022 after the 6:30 p.m. screening of the 2004 movie Keane at Film Lincoln Center in New York City. One audience member shared, “The restoration of the 2004 film was stunning. Damian’s performance was incredibly moving. And, the Q&A with Director Lodge [Kerrigan] was a massive treat.”
Grasshopper Film snapped up distribution rights to the critically acclaimed pic for the U.S. theatrical release, which is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh and produced by Andrew Fierberg. As previously reported here, the movie will also get a release in Los Angeles on August 28 and Boston on September 23. In addition, the movie is expected to be released on VOD, TV and home video soon. (The movie received a limited theatrical release in New York back in 2005.)
Keane turns on William Keane (Lewis) who is struggling to cope six months after his six-year-old daughter was abducted from New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal while traveling with him. Repeatedly drawn to the site of the abduction, Keane wanders the bus station, compulsively replaying the events of that fateful day as if hoping to change the outcome. When one day he meets a financially strapped woman, Lynn Bedik (Amy Ryan), and her seven-year-old daughter, Kira (Abigail Breslin), at a transient hotel, Keane becomes increasingly attached to Kira and uses her to fill the void left by his own daughter’s disappearance.
