    The interview included questions for Damian Lewis about Your Highness, his latest project that is currently filming on location in Northern Ireland:

    ES: What are you up to at the moment?

    DL: I’m shooting a new film called Your Highness with Natalie Portman and Charles Dance.

    ES: What’s it about?

    DL: It’s a medieval caper about two brothers who go on a quest to rescue a fair maiden. I play the head of a dastardly pack of knights who are chasing them.

    ES: Any plans for the summer?

    DL: I’ve already been on holiday. I’ve just got back from southwest France with my wife Helen (Narcissa Malfoy). We went to Gascony; it was lovely. The spirit of Cyrano was strong — I was having cutlass lessons every day.

  • According to VideoETA the region 1 (US and Canada) DVD for The Escapist with Damian Lewis is estimated for release in September 2009.

  • Penne Hackforth-Jones’s review of The Escapist includes this comment:

    I loved Damian Lewis in another fantastic variation of himself…the first I have seen since the telly production of ‘Life’. A very loathsome reptile he can be too.

  • Kaz shared this Times Online article titled “Why Brits rule on US TV” that states:

    And why did Damian Lewis (Eton, RSC) win roles in two series of Life?

    So grim is this state of affairs that America’s National Public Radio interrogated the makers of Life, who confessed: “What we found out about English actors is that they’re funny. We had a hard time finding an American tough guy who will be the butt of the joke, whereas Damian has no problem doing it. He’s like half Stan Morrow and half Steve McQueen.” It turns out that slightly imperfect looks and even British bad teeth are more convincing. The Life producers added: “You could argue that in our system, if you’re a young actor who isn’t leading-man handsome, you’re probably not going to get nurtured the way that you would in England, just based on talent.

  • The HeyUGuys site is featuring photos from Cambridge Jones’s new book Inspired By Music including images of Damian Lewis that are available in the Warehouse.
