Andrew Scott, Kenneth Branagh and Damian Lewis Attend BBC Films 25th Birthday Bash
by Susanna Lazarus – RadioTimes – March 26, 2015
Yesterday was a difficult day for the BBC, but as the fallout from the decision to drop Jeremy Clarkson rumbled on, director-general Tony Hall was joined by a host of famous faces for BBC Films’ 25th birthday bash.
The film-making arm of the Corporation was celebrating two and a half decades of producing features including Truly Madly Deeply, Billy Elliot, An Education, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and last year’s Pride.
Christine Langan – head of BBC Films – welcomed the likes of Andrew Scott, Alan Rickman, Damian Lewis and wife Helen McCrory, Louis Theroux, James Nesbitt, Kenneth Branagh and Helena Bonham Carter to last night’s star-studded celebration at New Broadcasting House.
The anniversary marks a big year for the BBC’s film division, which picked up a special Bafta for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema at this year’s ceremony to mark its two and a half decades “at the forefront of British independent filmmaking in the UK”.
Last night’s celebrations coincided with the announcement that Veep and The Thick of It creator Armando Iannucci is working on a feature film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel David Copperfield, and Rafe Spall will take the lead in BBC Films’ Swallows and Amazons.

“Do you know, I think you might wear a suit better than any man I’ve ever met.” In the intimate and strangely forbidden confines of a lift at the National Theatre, Helen McCrory’s heavily made-up hazel eyes are drinking in her husband’s tall, tailored frame.
“Thank you,” he replies, faintly awkwardly, looking down at the same Tom Ford tuxedo he wore to accept the best actor Emmy award only last month. “Does this mean you want me to do all the washing-up for a week?”
A gypsy laugh bubbles up from deep inside McCrory’s tiny dancer’s body.
“No, my darling, of course not! Just the bedtime stories…”

Damian and Helen Attend Cheltenham Literature Festival
by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | October 12, 2014
Damian loves and supports poetry and so do we! One poetry project he has actively supported is The Love Book, a brilliant collection of classic and contemporary love poems that vary from Shakespeare to E.E. Cummings to Maya Angelou coming together in a book as well as in an app. And it is our utmost pleasure to take you along to The Love Book event we were extremely lucky to attend at Cheltenham Literature Festival.
The reading took place in Times Forum, a huge 1400-seater. There was a giant screen so everyone could comfortably see the entire performance. The couple would stand on opposite sides of the stage and read.
