Helen McCrory arrives hungry. We’re meeting  on a spring afternoon in  a pub around the corner from her north London home, and Helen hasn’t yet eaten. She’s got a couple of hours before  she has to pick up her children – Manon, 10, and Gulliver, nine – from school, and she fully intends to make the most of them.

My Night with Damian Lewis – Dec 2, 2016

My Night with Damian Lewis

by Liz Smith – New York Social Diary – December 2, 2017

I went to a mah-velous party!” as Noel Coward once opined. And following in Noel’s footprints, so did I, your friend Liz. This in the fabled La Grenouille restaurant on East 52nd Street off 5th Ave. This most recent party was hosted by a mysterious and charming man who prefers to be nameless. He had seated me at the very end of a table of VIP’s, with no one on my left. This gave me a golden opportunity to pay full attention to the really big movie-TV-stage actor on my right. He just happened to be one of the hottest men of the moment — Damian Lewis.

Across from the two of us was the die-hard pro-Hillary super-fan, the ebullient Liz RobbinsShe saw me hand Mr. Lewis my card, as I was trying to impress him with my modesty! (I said to Damian, “This is who I used to be when I was a big deal back in the Dark Ages, before you were born.”) This enthusiastic good-hearted actor began to laugh and said, “I know exactly who you are.”

I answered brightly, “So you have nothing to fear.”  (We have never really met.  I’ve seen Damian, always looking sharp and sexy, at a number of events, screenings, mostly.  But I am actually rather shy, believe it or not.)

The entire dinner party was already stunned at  my “VIP” seat and many were getting ready to push me aside and mob Damian, or tell him that they, or their children/grandchildren adored him. But the ubiquitous Liz Robbins, naturally, began to compete with me for Damian’s attention. She told us all about herself, her hopes and dreams for a Clinton victory, despite all odds.

Damian and I listened contentedly to this explanation of Robbins’ rave for Hillary Clinton. Then she paused. Damian spoke up. “So, you are actually a lobbyist with deep ties to Washington!” This threw our end of the table into happy convulsions, because by now others were listening. The two Liz’s had scored big.

Damian Lewis turned out to be super smart, super nice, and proceeded to tell us about his two children in London and to laud his wonderful wife, the actress Helen McCrory. (Helen came to visit us and knelt down to chat during dessert.) When I told her how her husband had raved about her, she just laughed, saying, “He is SO lucky!”

By Jj Nattrass For Mailonline – Daily Mail – May 5, 2016

But Damian Lewis has revealed that despite being one of the public’s favoured thespians to play the British secret agent, he’s had no contact with studio executives regarding the films.

Speaking to Shortlist about his future prospects, the 44-year-old Homeland star revealed even though he’d be excited to be in the running for Bond he’s not actively pursuing the iconic role.

When asked if his role as an MI6 agent in new spy-thriller Our Kind Of Traitor was a public audition for the role, Damian revealed that Bond was the furthest thing from his mind while he was playing Hector.

Pressed on the topic of Bond, the actor explained that as far as he was concerned the role wasn’t about impressing 007 bosses, saying: ‘Not on my part, no.’

However, he did explain that it would be ‘exciting’ to be the new incarnation of Ian Fleming’s famous spy. Talking about the prospect of being offered the job, Damian conceeded it would be a thrill to carry a license to kill.

‘Well, it would be very exciting,’ he admitted. ‘But, you know actors never lose the excitement of being offered any job. It’s always exciting when you get the phone call.

However he also explained that he thought there was a ‘slight hysteria’ attached to the role.
