“It’s a wonderful, brilliant, creative outlet, and something very different”
Sammy Jones | Pulse Magazine | November 6, 2023
Damian Lewis is one of our best loved actors, but his current role sees him stepping out of the screen and onto the musical stage, as he realized a long held dream. As he prepares to visit Milton Keynes, he talks with Pulse’s Sammy Jones about swapping acting for truthful sounds.
The album, Mission Creep, was released to flowing reviews earlier this year. “It’s an album that is real and warm and moody,” I say. “That’s nice, good…that is what we were hoping it would sound like,” Samian says, “I definitely wanted it to have that quite present feel – that you feel you are in the room with us. We recorded on tape, we didn’t do it digitally, and I think a lot of those takes are actually live takes of me signing with the band on some of those songs.”

Damian took to social media today to aid in the ‘Coffee To Cure EB‘ campaign. Damian has been a Patron of the charity since 2014 and encourages his followers to donate the price of the average coffee, £3, by texting CUREEB to 70560. Cure EB is a research-focused charity dedicated to finding effective treatments and a cure for all types of Epidermolysis Bullosa. Do it like Damian:
Please help this brilliant charity, which I am patron of, @CureEBorg, find a cure for this horrible skin disease and help prevent aggressive forms of skin cancer in early adulthood. Thank you, 🦋 pic.twitter.com/1cNfeaSzTU

Billions Season 7 Episode 12: ‘Admirals Fund’
by Lady Trader | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | November 3, 2023
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through (and I mean to go on and on and on) We Are The Champions – Queen
All’s well that ends well. Was there any doubt that Axe, Wendy, Chuck, and the rest of the rebels would come out on top this episode? They have come through the fire and are all better for it. Even though I think we all kind of knew how the show would end, it was still satisfying. There has been many a series finale over the past few years that has had fans taking to social media and voicing their disappointment (think Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Lost) but Billions will not be one of those. This was a great ending and sendoff for a series and a cast of characters that had become near and dear to our hearts.
Back in October of 2021 at the end of Season 5, I wrote a farewell to Bobby Axelrod and to Billions, as it looked like Damian and the character of Axe had left the Billions building for good. After re-reding that post, all the sentiments still ring true. I encourage you to check it out (since it will save me from retyping it) while I focus on what I liked from “Admirals Fund”.

For those who are both Cartier Jewelry and the Showtime series Billions enthusiasts, you will be thrilled to learn that Cartier (who has many film credits dating back to Hollywood’s Heyday) provided the jewelry for the final season of the show and the last episode which aired on October 28, 2023, The pieces were worn by Maggie Siff in her role as Wendy Rhoades, who from season one proved to be as powerful if not more so then the male characters on the show. She was hired by Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) to combine her training as a psychiatrist with an instinct and heightened understanding of human nature to help Axe Capital build its hedge fund from the ground up and worked as the company’s in-house performance coach to compel the team to ‘make more money’ for the company and step up their confidence.

He usually plays his new songs Pentonville Prison and Traffic Jam. For encore he usually plays a cover of After Midnight and his other new song She Makin’ Me Change.
