Hints and Clues About New Project
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 10, 2019
Today this sweet, young, professional actor posted pictures of him and Damian on Instagram giving us fandom the first clue about a possible up-and-coming voice work project Damian appears to be a part of. In addition to Damian and Hector Bateman, other actors possibly involved in the project are Allan Corduner, Sophia Pettit and Susannah Wise. Bateman wrote,
“Sometimes I have to pinch myself. A part comes along that I am honoured to play, particularly when it has a truth in history and based on events that should never ever be forgotten. I feel I have a duty to pay respect to those involved, to what happened and let others hear the story too. This was one of those. Truly blessed to be able to do it 💗 I also got to work with the most incredible team – MASSIVE talent with so much experience to learn from and tales to hear, I love listening to their advice. Their skill is so inspiring, seeing people like that in action is just wow! The crew was so motivating, sharing the story, making me want to do the best possible version of the character it’s a privilege to be. Thankful and blessed to be part of this. Thanks to the wonderful #DamianLewis @AllanCorduner @SophiaPettit #SusannahWise and all the others not in the pictures!”
No details about the project were provided other than it is rooted in historical truth about events that should never be forgotten, and we can’t wait to find out what this voice work will lead to! Perhaps a radio play? Looking forward to it as always!
