So long as Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory are in the same room, there are sure to be smiles. The British couple, who married in July 2007 and are parents to daughter Manon and son Gulliver, no doubt have one happy home, residing in North London. The Homeland actor and Peaky Blinders actress originally met in 2003, when the pair starred in Five Gold Rings at London’s Almeida Theatre. Director Michael Attenborough described the couple’s chemistry on stage “like directing a fire.” In honour of their fiery love, and recent Fashion Week appearances, keep reading for their sweetest public moments.

Looks like the pre-BAFTA parties continue as we see Damian and Helen arriving at the annual Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTAs dinner party at the Mark’s Club in Mayfair, London on Saturday evening, February 17, 2018. The usual mariachi band greeted Finch’s guests at the dinner, as it has for the last 19 years.  Held the night before the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, Finch’s annual dinners have become the stuff of after-dark legend, as the event calls on the industry’s talent to celebrate British film before the awards ceremony tomorrow night. Other stars who flocked to Mayfair venue included Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger, and actors Hugh Grant, Kristin Scott Thomas and Margot Robbie.

View video below of Damian arriving at the pre-BAFTA awards dinner party, also featuring Gillian Anderson and Greta Gerwig.

Rake Magazine Interview: A True Leading Man – Feb 15, 2018

In an exclusive interview with The Rake, Damian Lewis tells Tom Chamberlin why we all, in spite of ourselves, love an anti-hero.

Lewis – from Life to Homeland, Wolf Hall to Billions – has become the finest purveyor of modern drama’s moral ambiguities. In fact, writes Tom Chamberlin, if you can think of an actor who has influenced our golden age of television more than him, speak up…

Among the more ambiguous archetypes of the celluloid age, that of ‘leading man’ is perhaps the least defined. Far from the specific criteria of commedia dell’arte and melodrama, in which the characters are demarcated (bad guy = black hat and moustachioed, etc.), the leading man is purely subjective. Arguably he is the origin of celebrity, pulling screen presence into the limelight of fame. But the list of leading men over the years has shown that no colour, size, hair, manner or cultural identity has ever had dominion over the sobriquet. That is until Damian Lewis entered the fray. For Lewis is a man who, above anything else, is an exemplar of leadership and integrity at a time when the acting world could use a dose of it.

Damian Lewis takes charge of rooms when he enters them. Photoshoots with celebrities are often led by either the photographer, who squeezes every image he or she can from the available time; the stylist, whose job is to make sure a well-curated variety of clothes appears in the magazine; or the publicist, who tends to be the powerbroker. The ‘talent’ can often struggle through the day (except, of course, former Rake cover subjects), regarding the experience as a necessary nuisance. Not so with Mr. Lewis.

Damian Lewis

Martin Gray in The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? at Theatre Royal Haymarket, London

Goat love; we’ve all been there. OK, maybe not a goat, but what about an attraction to a particularly cute hamster? No? What about your pet dog? Not even after one Guinness too many? OK, we’ll stop, but there’s a point to be explored – about the destructive, uncontrollable nature of human sexuality – and Damian Lewis’ turn last year as a starchitect looking into the abyss of, yes, a goat obsession, staged at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, raised many uncomfortable truths. Starring opposite the electric Sophie Okonedo, Lewis’ performance captured a man’s terror at realizing he is a sexual outlaw trapped in a society where sex, love and marriage have strict, delineated codes.

Official nominations will be announced March 6th. The 2018 Laurence Olivier Awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. For more information, please visit the Official London Theatre website.
