He’s famous for his fiery red hair.
But Damian Lewis has undergone a dramatic makeover for his role upcoming drama The Silent Storm – by completely shaving his head.
The 42-year-old actor showed off his new look as he got to work filming the love story on the Isle Of Mull in Scotland on Monday.
Homeland star Damian was virtually unrecognisable as he prepared to begin shooting the film, which also stars Andrea Riseborough.
Sporting a pair of sunglasses and black double breasted-coat over a black V-neck T-shirt, Damian’s new appearance gave him a mysterious air.
The actor was seen driving his smart navy Jaguar in the village of Pennyghael about 3 miles from the secluded Carsaig Estate.
His car was later seen parked up on some grass just outside the village, as Damian is believed to have left the vehicle there because the road leading up to the set is so narrow and steep.
Shunning the usual modes of transport favoured by celebrities, Damian is believed to have arrived by ferry after travelling in from Oban.
The Secret Storm tells the story of an enigmatic outsider (Riseborough) living on a remote Scottish island who is caught between her commanding husband (Lewis) and a 17 year-old delinquent (newcomer Ross Anderson).

Damian Lewis interview

You WILL answer our questions, Lewis…
The following feature is available free for reproduction in full or in part.
Damian Lewis is sitting opposite me, drinking tea in a wood-panelled library in a discreetly opulent Central London hotel. With his clipped Old Etonian accent and understated self-confidence, he seems the epitome of Englishness. Which is why it’s surprising that so many of his highest profile roles have been Americans.
Bringing the fight back home
THE premise is intriguing. A United States marine, missing in action for eight years and presumed dead, is rescued from a terrorist compound. He has been held hostage by al-Qaeda for all that time.
Damian Lewis Homeland Q+A: “The final episode is both psychologically and emotionally violent.”
by ANDY GREENWALD
Speaking to Damian Lewis on the telephone is disconcerting — and not because Lewis, in his role as troubled maybe-terrorist Sgt. Nicholas Brody, appears likely to blow himself to bits on Sunday’s Homeland season finale. The redheaded actor has an All-American bearing on television but in reality is an eloquent Englishman with a plummy accent more suited to Boodles & Tonics than boot camp. Lewis had so much to say about his complicated character that he barely required any questions before pontificating on the psychology of suicide bombers, what Brody is really thinking, and how he and Claire Danes are like two broken birds.
