Life’s Too Short To Not Do What You Love

by This Morning | YouTube | March 19, 2024

Damian was a guest on This Morning, Tuesday, March 19, 2024 with hosts Ben Shephard and Cat Deeley. He discussed music, his debut album Mission Creep, his UK Tour Part 2 and playing upcoming sold-out shows. He may have also smooched a pooch while on set, and answered some corridor questions. Renowned for hit series like Homeland and Billions, once embarked on a journey across Europe with nothing but a tent, a guitar and a dream of becoming the next Elvis. Now, after decades of silver screen success and a tough couple of years that reminded him ‘life’s too short’, he’s revisiting his childhood rockstar dreams. He joins us in-studio to tell us about putting down the scripts and picking up the microphone stand as he continues his UK tour.

It’s not too late to see one of his shows. Tour schedule and ticket information here.

Warriors

by Staff | TV Gids | October 13, 2023

Actors Damian Lewis and Matthew Macfayden and director Peter Kosminsky come together to look back at the 1999 BBC drama Warriors and the roles that brought Lewis and Macfayden international success. The critically acclaimed series explored the role of British soldiers working as UN peacekeepers in Bosnia, confronting the moral realities of war and the horrors of ethnic cleansing.

The three share the stories behind the making of the programme, from casting process to location filming, and how cast and crew let off steam to help deal with the harrowing storylines. They also discuss the critical response, how the series stands up today and why, for all three of them, Warriors remains a career highlight even over two decades later.

Warriors (cultural programme) airs on BBC 4 on Wednesday, October 18, 2023 at 22:00 BST. Rebroadcast can be viewed here.

Damian Lewis on Jazz FM’s Nigel Williams Saturday Show

Surround Yourself With People More Talented Than Yourself

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 23, 2023

Damian was on Jazz FM Saturday show with Nigel Williams today, September 23, 2023 discussing his music, debut album Mission Creep and UK tour – with Brighton, Manchester and Leeds coming up next! You can view tour dates and ticket outlets here. During the segment Nigel played four of Damian’s songs: After Midnight (at 115:30), Hole in My Roof (at 122:36), She Comes (at 165:38) and Harvest Moon (at 173:47).

Nigel asked Damian if he had picked up anything from being around other musicians like Giacomo Smith. Damian replied, “You must surround yourself with people more talented than yourself at all times in whatever you do in life, and I’m doing that. What’s interesting, you know, is there are guys in our band – Giacomo is one of them – who write and are releasing their own records. Everyone is writing their own stuff but I’m the only person that writes songs. I’m the only lyricist. I think we all…I think they bring an immeasurable amount to me and I think pleasingly – and maybe a bit surprisingly – I bring something to them, which is an opportunity to play songs, written lyrical songs. And it’s a privilege and a joy to be in there with them.”
