Damian Lewis Fits His Rock Career Around Being a Solo Parent

Hit Me Baby One More Time

by Alex Spencer | Cambridge Independent | March 8, 2024

Hollywood actor Damian Lewis has discovered a surprising extra benefit to his new sideline as a rock singer.

“Turns out the life of a rock star is getting home and cooking dinner for your family. Who knew? That’s not what it said on the tin,” he reveals.

Damian, who has stayed close to home to look after his teenage children since the tragic death of his wife Helen McCrory from cancer, now has to consider carefully which projects he can take on.

Helen, best known for her starring roles in Peaky Blinders and Harry Potter, died in April 2021, aged 52. They had been married nearly 14 years and had two children, Manon and Gulliver.

Damian, star of Billions and Homeland, said: “I’m quite quite selective about what actual work I take because I’m a solo parent with two teenage kids. I can’t go away for a long time. I can’t go and make a movie for four months in Australia, for example, and so I’m trying to take work that fits in with family life. And music, oddly, it actually fits better. That’s a happy happenstance. It’s not the reason I’m doing it.

“The reason I’m doing it is because I’m loving it and really enjoying it. But it does actually fit in, unless I was to get on a bus and go to American for four months; but doing a 15-date tour in the UK and being able to get home most nights is doable.”

Damian began writing the songs during lockdown, when Helen was ill. “They’re quite a personal collection of songs,” he says.

Damian Lewis Remembers Oxford Field Rave

O2 Academy2 Oxford

by Edward Burnett | Oxford Mail | March 7, 2024

Damian Lewis has been acting since the 1990s and played the leading role of Bobby Axelrod in the American series Billions which ran from 2016 to 2023.

After starring in various projects including Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 epic blockbuster Once Upon a Time….in Hollywood, Damian decided to pursue a career in music alongside his acting.

He released his debut album ‘Mission Creep’ last summer and the Hollywood star is bringing his live music gig to the city next month.

The actor revealed in an exclusive chat with the Oxford Mail he once raved nearby.

“I have been to Oxford as a long time ago I had friends who were at the university there so I visited then,” said Damian.

“I went to a rave once in Oxford in a field, just outside of Oxford which was a while back.

“I’ve still got friends who live close by so yeah, I love Oxford, it’s a beautiful city.”

The 53-year-old’s love for Oxford played into the actor’s choice to come and perform the standalone gig in the city.

“I just wanted to play at nice venues and places with nice city centres and are on the map,” added Damian. Oxford is a really nice place to come and play because it’s a cool little town centre.”

Damian Lewis will perform at the O2 Academy2 Oxford on Friday, March 22 with tickets priced at £31.60. Ticket information for Damian’s UK Spring tour can be found here.  Order his debut album Mission Creep from his official music store here.
