A big thank you to Kay for sharing the text of a terrific new interview with Helen McCrory in today’s ES Magazine. We learn a great deal about this talented and interesting woman and also get to hear about Damian and Helen’s new home and wedding plans! Kaz also drew our attention to the trailer for Helen McCrory’s new film The Queen starring Helen Mirren.
Thanks to Vera of Acting Naturally, the Julia Stiles fansite, for the large, gorgeous photos of Damian Lewis from the recent Mark C. O’Flaherty photoshoot. Click here to enjoy all of these wonderful images.
Jen provided the schedule for September’s Damian Lewis broadcasts on Australian television including Friends and Crocodiles, The Forsyte Saga, Colditz, and Poirot: Hickory, Dickory, Dock. (Lucky Aussies!)

Perched on a velvet sofa in the elegant sitting room of the Cheyne Walk Brasserie, Helen McCrory strokes her Stella McCartney-clad stomach and smiles under heavy eyelids, rather like the cat who’s got the cream. As well she might. Life has never seemed to be particularly tough for McCrory, 37, who has been winning plaudits for her acting ever since she took her first role in the National Theatre’s production of Trelawney of the Wells, and who is constantly tipped as the next Judi Dench.
But even by her own high standards, the future is looking pretty rosy. She is eight months pregnant with her first child, and has an unnervingly perfect celebrity bump – no fat ankles or swollen face, just a watermelon at the waistline and a correspondingly magnificent bronzed cleavage. “I’ve never worn so many low-cut dresses in my life. If I could just wear spangles, I would. I feel so amazingly attractive,” she gurgles throatily, with total justice if our young waiter’s saucer eyes are anything to go by.
McCrory doesn’t appear to notice him but then if you’re engaged to Damian Lewis, star of The Forsyte Saga and Band of Brothers (and arguably the sexiest redhead on the planet), waiters probably come rather low in the pecking order. “I’ve never been broody before, but when I met Damian I became very different about relationships,” she says.
» Distribution agreements have been finalized for the theatrical
release of Keane in Spain, no release dates yet.
» Damian Lewis is still scheduled to participate in the Q&A session on September 20th at the Soho Curzon Cinema advance screening of Keane but director Lodge Kerrigan will not be able to attend. The film will be theatrically released in the UK on September 22nd.
» Damian’s young Keane co-star Abigail Breslin will appear on an upcoming episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
» Contact Soda Pictures, the UK distributor for Keane, to request the film in your area and also to ask for the movie on Region 2 DVD.
» Show support for this brilliant film by rating Keane on IMDb.
» Contact Magnolia Pictures, the US distributor, and ask them to show Keane on US television.
» Alex Pettyfer is listed to attend the festival but (as expected) Damian Lewis will not attend.
Martha (scribe773), a member of the Damian Lewis Yahoo! Group suffered a serious injury more than two months ago and she hasn’t had access to any Damian information or programs during all that time! Contact KathyV if you would like to send her a card to cheer her up.
Ann discovered that Entertainment Tonight will feature a story about Helen McCrory’s new film The Queen tomorrow night, August 24th.

Selene contacted Shadow Distribution and learned that no advance screenings of The Situation starring Damian Lewis are planned until the film screens at the Hamptons Film Festival in New York in October. The movie will be released in New York City in early 2007.
Check out Dryope’s terrific Band of Brotherssite for newly uploaded photos of Damian Lewis along with other handsome men of Easy Company! Selene has added the photos of Damian to the Warehouse.
US members be sure and check your local PBS station, some (but not all) stations are running and re-running The Forsyte Saga starring Damian Lewis this month (and the US broadcast includes some scenes that are not available on DVD!) And don’t forget to vote for Damian’s portrayal of Soames Forsyte as “Best Male Lead in a Period Drama” in the Masterpiece Theater poll – the winners will be featured in a 35th Anniversary program next March!
