    Actor Damian Lewis, who cycles regularly, both at home in London and LA, and when he is filming, said: “I live in North London and I can get to Soho on bike routes in 15 minutes and I love it. We should have more cycle routes. It’s a fantastic way to get about.

    Helen McCrory is, without doubt, one of Britain’s most powerful acting talents. Her acting range seems boundless. Helen has a very rare combination of personal qualities that she brings to her acting—she is confident and assertive but also has a huge amount of compassion, which allows her to lace her characters with a sense of vulnerability as well as strength.

    Helen is also cited as an example of Britain’s phenomenal acting talent in this interview with director Robin Sheppard.
