    theatre a lot, they are not planning to live in the States (not for now
    anyway), children keeping them busy, how much she admires Damian as an actor
    (and not just saying that because she’s married to him, she said).” Thanks to Tina for the report! 🙂

Damian was originally reticent about agreeing to be photographed due to concerns that the picture might be used for commercial purposes. After John explained that he is an artist and planned to use the photo in an exhibition, and that it wouldn’t be sold, and that the last 2 days of the exhibition are a “free giveaway” Damian allowed the picture.

  • Click above to view a fan-made “pre-trailer” for Damian Lewis’s new film titled Your Highness that is currently filming on location in Northern Ireland. The video was posted on YouTube by TheTop5ive with this description:

    Pre-trailer. First look at the upcoming movie “Your Highness” starring Danny McBride, star of “Eastbound and Down” and “Pineapple Express.” “Your Highness” pairs McBride up with sexy James Franco and hot Natalie Portman. Your Highness is a stoner comedy in the vein of those 1980s fantasy, swords-and-sorcerors movies. Pack a bowl, put on your ren faire costume and check it out.

  • Click here and here for articles about the July 23rd theatrical release of
    The Escapist in The Netherlands. Thanks to Ryanne for the links and for this quote and translation from NRC Handelsblad:

    Een speciale vermelding verdient Damien Lewis als dreigend-charismatische boevenbaas Rizza.

    Translation:

    Damian Lewis deserves a special mention as the menacing-charismatic prison boss Rizza.

    Personally, I didn’t find Rizza at all charismatic. I thought that he was creepy and scary. 🙁 But Damian Lewis is a great actor! 🙂
