Ace in the Hole
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | August 26, 2023
This weekend Damian was spotted in the Welsh countryside of Llandybie near Llandeilo, Wales at the Glynhir Golf Club, stopping in at the golf course’s Pro Shop. Is it me, or is his hair blonder? Perhaps some highlights for a new role or his current vampy role as the malevolent and alluring Uncle Will in the vampire comedy, The Radleys. Or maybe the lighter locks are a result from all that fun in the sun from his recent vacation in St Tropez.
Damian has shared many times over that he loves going to Wales. From history we know Damian’s North Walian father Watcyn and his grandparents were all Welsh, so he has links to the area having been a regular visitor since his youth. Holidays and weekends were spent either in Llandeilo or around the beaches of Porthmadog, celebrating St. David’s Day was a childhood event and the Welsh team was the only one to back in rugby. The family has a second home there, which they have occupied in Llandeilo for more than 40 years.

Making the Rounds at the Racetrack

Time to rev up those engines! Damian was seen at the Formula 1 British Grand Prix meeting ‘92 champion Nigel Mansell in the paddock and was given a tour of the Red Bull Racing garage, taking time to visit with British singer-songwriter Sam Ryder. Damian even met Stefano Domenicali, CEO of the Formula One Group, prior to the race and provided a grid walk interview with Martin Brundle. The 2022 Grand Prix of Great Britain took place over 52 laps of the 5.891-kilometre Silverstone Circuit on Sunday, July 3 in Northampton, England. It was reported Damian was right in the action filming the cars from the side of the track as the drivers left the starting grid for their formation lap and at one point shot the t-shirt cannon into the crowd of the fans (picture below). Carlos Sainz – driving for Ferrari – won for the first time in F1, with Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton coming in second and third, respectively.

Written By GingersnapComments Off on Legendary Footballer John Barnes Coaches a Young Damian Lewis
From the Archives
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | June 24, 2022
We have long suspected and can now definitively share that the photo above, which has been floating around the internet since 2015, is indeed a young Damian Lewis. A little backstory for you – Damian recently shared on The Anfield Wrap podcast with Andrew Heaton that he and some of his pals were coached by legendary footballer John Barnes during his Watford days. Since Barnes played for Watford from 1981–1987, that would make Damian somewhere between the ages of 10-16 during that timeframe.
To narrow down Damian’s age even more, video of The John Barnes Story documentary (26:20 in), which originally aired in 2015 on ITV 4 as part of the Sports Life Stories series, states Barnes found time to coach on the green playing fields of Eton College during his career and we know Damian attended Eton for five years, between ages 13-18. The documentary also states Barnes provided coaching sessions at Eton for “the under 14’s.” My guess, Damian is probably between the ages of 13-14 in this photo. We’d like to thank football fan Simon Corney for his initial clue shared on Twitter back in April, 2015. And finally, we’d like to thank Andrew Heaton who confirmed with the Fan Fun Team that the photo is in fact, Damian. Mystery solved 🙂 And if you need more confirmation, John Barnes confirmed himself:
when i played for watford, i used to coach at eton school every now and then and YES, that is a young damian lewis!!!🤣

Desert Island Goals
by Andrew Heaton | The Anfield Wrap | June 23, 2022
Damian Lewis recently participated in The Anfield Wrap podcast with Andrew Heaton to discuss the three goals that decorated his time supporting Liverpool and mean the most to him, as well as chatting about his career to date. To listen to the entire one hour podcast, download The Anfield Wrap app from iTunes, walk through the sign-up in the app, get your verification code via email, then choose “50 tokens” instead of “subscribe” to listen. Unsure what 50 tokens costs or how that is tallied, but “tokens” is the way to hear just the episode instead of purchasing $10.99/month subscription to the entire podcast series.
Damian discusses the three pubs in New York one could frequent to watch “footie” while he was working in the States, as well as being served “a good English breakfast and Guinness.” They discussed Band of Brothers with its unreal cast and the fact that the television series is still talked about 20+ years later, with Damian saying, “It was a beautifully made bit of TV.” Moderator Andrew Heaton divulged his absolute favorite Damian Lewis role was Billions and then quipped, “…obviously it’s not as good now, you’re not there anymore so it doesn’t matter.” To which Damian replied, “You know, I mean, there’s one more season, that’s all I’m saying.” Heaton then states, “Hey, listen, I’m not saying nothing.” And then Damian repeats the statement again “All I’m saying is there’s one more season.” WHAAATTTT???!!!! Then Damian shared that Paul Giamatti is adorable, funny, smart, incredibly talented, a joy to work with and a total professional. When describing Axe, Damian claims that character is a “crim” (criminal) and total shit. LOL He goes on to say that Axe is Billy The Kid and Chuck (Paul Giamatti) is Wyatt Earp. Here is a clip but if you want to hear the real juicy stuff, you’ll have to listen to the full pod:
Written By GingersnapComments Off on Damian Lewis and David Beckham Gaze Into Each Other’s Souls at Soccer Aid
by Shane Watson | The Telegraph | June 16, 2022
Men have friendships that women can’t help but envy – and it’s never clearer than when they’re famous.
When Damian Lewis locked eyes with David Beckham on the football pitch at Soccer Aid, it was an electric moment. David lit up like a small boy meeting his dad at the arrivals gate and Damian smiled like he’d missed him and only just realised how much. This is what the Mutual Hero friendship looks like.
David looks up to Damian and Damian looks up to David. Because Damian is an Etonian with sporty aspirations, he will be in awe of David, and because David admires a classy bloke, and Band of Brothers is almost certainly top of his watch-once-a-year list, he will feel much the same. But with the Mutual Hero friendship it’s also a matter of chemistry. Mixed in with the respect and the joy (“Look at us – we’ve still got it!”) there’s a whiff of a man crush going on. They both think each other are pretty fine specimens – all the more so because they’re from different tribes.
Women will have looked at the pictures of these two walking into each other’s arms and been reminded that male mates – especially in midlife – are surprisingly different from female ones. We may have friends who will instantly rally in a crisis, friends who know us better than our mothers and friends with whom we share every secret; but there are male friendships we can’t help but envy for their mysterious unshakeable bonds and inexplicable loyalties. Here are some of the four types of friendship that midlife men have:
