Season 5 Locations Guide
by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | June 22,2020
As I mentioned a billion times before, Billions is a dream show for me not only because my favorite actor is in it, but also because New York, from its landmarks to its city parks and to its quirky shops, appears as a cast member in the show!

You have to know what part of the story you are there to fulfill. If you’re playing the a–hole, you’re going to have to be the a–hole. Don’t try to be liked because, ‘excuse the story.’”
