53 Song Dedications for Damian Lewis’s Birthday

Tunes for the Music Man

by Gingersnap | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | February 11, 2024

Today Damian Lewis turns 53! Happy Birthday Damian, from the Fan Fun with Damian Lewis Team and all the fandom around the world! Every January the Team begins contemplating what we can do differently to celebrate Damian’s birthday in February and year after year we strive to be creative and unique. In 2022 we baked and decorated 51 Birthday Cakes and in 2023 we mixed 52 Celebratory Cocktails in honor of Damian. We’ve been bakers and we’ve been mixologists – now it’s time to enter the DJ booth, lay down some tracks and scratch out those beats on the deck. With the release of his debut album Mission Creep and recent UK tour, what better way to continue that music theme than to celebrate Damian’s 53rd birthday with 53 song dedications!

We planned, conspired and mobilized the fandom in the back channels of Twitter, Instagram or Facebook DM’s, as well as e-mail, to accomplish this secret project. With our idea set in motion the goal remained the same…to bring a smile to Damian’s face. The task was simple: choose a song that reminds us of Damian or reminds us of one of our favorite characters he has played. It could also be a song we wished he would cover at one of his music gigs or hope to hear on his next album. Any song for any reason.

Unveiling of ‘A Fairy Tale of New York’

Sir HvH Arts Foundation

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

It was a fantastical evening as Damian and friends unveiled the Advent window ‘A Fairy Tale of New York’ on the eve of the Winter Solstice for Sir HvH Arts Foundation, a charity organization that Damian is the Patron of, and Helen McCrory was the former Patron. The beautiful design was created by Damian and Helen’s children, Manon and Gulliver, and displays a silhouette of the New York City skyline as “our Angel” flys over all those on earth.

Damian Lewis To Host Annual McCrory Award in Private Exhibit

The McCrory Award Campaign 2024

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | December 5, 2023

Damian is scheduled to host a private viewing of the “DoNotDisturb” art exhibit on March 26, 2024 at the Alon Zakaim Fine Arts gallery in London, showcasing exclusive photography pieces and black and white sketches of Helen McCrory to support the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Foundation and to honor The McCrory Award. Funds raised from the charity event will sponsor 3 young HvH Arts Foundation artistic beneficiaries who will be bestowed The McCrory Award mentorship. Sadie Frost will also co-host the occasion. More than likely there will be an online catalogue to browse for purchase through donation, typically via a prize draw and pledge to support the charity.  The inaugural event launched back on June 15, 2022.

The foundation – which Helen was the former Patron of and is now patroned by Damian – gives access to free art and media workshops for disadvantaged children “…so they can express their inner artist” and flourish. Like last year, we anticipate featured photographs will be donated by additional celebrities, all who have posed for Helen’s friend Debbi Clark, photographer and CEO/Founder of HvH Arts Foundation.

Damian Lewis and Children Attend ‘Wonka’ World Premiere

They’ve Got a Golden Ticket

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | November 28, 2023

Damian and his children, daughter Manon (who wore her mother’s dress) and son Gulliver (who wore his father’s famous mustard coat), attended the Warner Bros. Pictures World Premiere of Wonka at The Royal Festival Hall on Tuesday, November 28, 2023 in London, England. They walked the red carpet as part of the VIP arrivals to see Damian’s former Homeland co-star Timothée Chalamet, who plays Wonka in the musical fantasy film. See more photos of their red carpet arrivals in our Gallery here. The film follows a young Willy Wonka, presenting a prequel story to the Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It explores how the world’s greatest inventor, magician, and chocolate maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today.

Other stars in attendance were Calah Lane, Keegan-Michael Key, Paterson Joseph, Matt Lucas, Mathew Baynton, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, Jim Carter, Olivia Colman and Hugh Grant. For those who may not remember, Matt Lucas joined the FeedNHS initiative alongside Damian and Helen McCrory, a charity they started during the CoVid-19 pandemic. Matt released his Baked Potato Song to raise funds for the campaign. Everything’s connected!

Picture of the Week

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | November 9, 2023

Tall Ginger in the background looks familiar 😉

The internet does not disappoint, as a random photo surfaced showing Damian in the background at Alexa Chung’s 40th birthday party this week. Alexa Chung is a British television presenter, model, internet personality, writer, and designer of the fashion label ALEXACHUNG. She has ties to Vogue and Vogue World, which Damian and Alison recently attended, and we have no doubt Alison probably joined Damian for these birthday festivities as well. We will keep our eyes peeled for more photos!

Damian Lewis Attended 67 Pall Mall’s Steven Spurrier Celebration

Master of the Cork

Damian attended a party on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 67 Pall Mall to celebrate the life of wine expert Steven Spurrier, author of A Life of Wine. The 67 Pall Mall Group is a collection of private Members’ Clubs devoted to fine wine. Spurrier is the founder of the Académie du Vin, France’s first private wine school established in Paris in 1973. I can’t help but think of Damian’s Billions co-star Paul Giamatti with his memorable quote from the film Sideways, “If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving. I am NOT drinking any fucking Merlot!” 😉
