Damian Lewis can plot the impact of his lead role on hit US drama series, Billions from one season – and continent – to the next.

“When I’m in New York and I walk around, people go, ‘Yeah, Bobby Axelrod, yeah, love you man!’, and when I’m in England, where I live, people go, ‘Oh, Bobby Axelrod, you’re a real arsehole!’” he tells TV Guide.

After wrapping season three, the former Homeland star adds, laughing “I think you’ll find that everyone’s an a-hole.”

“When Bobby Gets Scratched, He Comes Back Harder”

by Jay Bobbin | On TV Today | May 2, 2018

In February of this year Jay Bobbin tweeted this teaser that he had recently interviewed Damian.

The article was finally released today, and how apropos is it that Damian describes his Billions character Bobby Axelrod as “…a big family man. He really loves his wife and adores his kids and will do anything for them,” yet as we saw in episode 6 just last Sunday, Bobby is contemplating taking a plea for Wendy’s sake, seemingly abandoning his wife, children, family and career – something Axe experienced himself with his own father.

Damian says of Billions and playing Bobby Axelrod, “This season we descend even further through the circles of hell. And as each personable, individual soul blackens and darkens because of the corrupting influence of power and money, we see the stakes just rise higher and higher. It’s really good fun. You know, this is a show about assholes being assholes. That’s why he’s [Axe] fun to play. He’s a predator, he prowls, he’s looking for prey – that’s a good metaphor for hedge fund guys who are looking for the injured wildebeest off the back of the pack that’s under performing. He’s got a swagger about him. He’s an alley cat. He’s a scrapper, he’s that boxer who lives on his wits and who’s wits are just a little bit quicker than everybody else’s so he can roll and he’s got quick feet.”

Over the last two years, Willie has sat down with some of the biggest names in news and pop culture — from actors and musicians to presidents and CEOs — to talk about the stories behind their success. Starting now, these entire conversations will be available every week on the “Sunday Sitdown” podcast.
