Damian Lewis Talks Music, Billions and Wolf Hall Sequel

A Man of Many Talents

by Mick Burgess | The Northern Echo | September 21, 2023

Damian Lewis might be best known for his starring roles in Wolf Hall, Homeland and Billions, to name a few, but he is also a talented musician who’s just released his first album, Mission Creep. Mick Burgess called him for a chat ahead of his tour visiting the region next month.

How do you feel ahead of your first ever tour?
I can’t wait to get started, I’m really excited. I’ve played at a few festivals and done a lot of London gigs in the last year, but I’m so excited to play at these venues with a wonderful heritage and I’m really looking forward to getting out there to play my new album, Mission Creep.

Damian Lewis: Man on a Mission

On The Record

by Paul Kirkley | Weekend Magazine | July 27, 2023, Issue #658

Damian Lewis has the acting world at his feet – so why has he stepped out of the comfort zone to release a debut album and take it on tour? He tells Paul Kirkley about the challenge of changing career lanes – and why the first person he needed to convince was himself.

Damian Lewis has a cast-iron excuse for having slept through his 10am appointment with Weekend – he’s been up all night shooting scenes for his latest role as a vampire in supernatural comedy The Radleys. And vampires, famously, are not morning people.

Damian Lewis Vampire Comedy ‘The Radleys’ Boasts an All-Star Ensemble

Bloody Little Secret

by Lacy Baugher | Telly | June 29, 2023

Damian Lewis is the sort of actor one tends to associate with prestige drama — he won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his starring role in the spy thriller Homeland, but his career has spanned series ranging from period dramas (Wolf Hall) to adaptations of literary classics (A Spy Among Friends). With a little Succession-lite thrown on top for good measure (Billions).

He’s definitely not the first actor whose name that comes to mind when you hear the phrase “supernatural black comedy.” But that’s about to change thanks to his new (dual) role in The Radleys, a contemporary vampire film that aims to explore what happens when we ignore our deepest, darkest desires or try to suppress our true selves.

Damian Lewis to Star in Director Euros Lyn‘s ‘The Radleys’

Abstainer Vampires

by Naman Ramachandran | Variety | October 21, 2022

Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis (“A Spy Among Friends,” “Billions”) will star in BAFTA-winning “Heartstopper” director Euros Lyn’s supernatural black comedy film “The Radleys.” Collider states, “Lyn will serve as the film’s director. The production marks a reunion between the filmmaker and his leading man as both Lyn and Lewis previously teamed up back in 2020 for the sports drama, Dream Horse.”

“The Radleys” is based on Matt Haig’s popular novel which follows the Radleys, a seemingly ordinary family who hold a dark secret – they are vampires. They are abstainers, vampires who choose not to drink blood despite their natural cravings, but the truth is revealed one day.

The film is based on a script developed by British Comedy Award winner Jo Brand (“Getting on”) and is written by Talitha Stevenson (“Late in Summer”). It will start shooting in the U.K. in May 2023. (UPDATE: Damian revealed shooting begins Monday, June 5, 2023).
