From Locker Room to After-Party: Damian Lewis at Game for Grenfell
Well, he may call himself a muppet but Damian plays more like a professional baller in Game for Grenfell!
Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, two former football stars, put together Game4Grenfell, a football match between two amazing teams of football stars and non-football stars at Queen Park Rangers’ (QPR) Loftus Road Stadium “to raise funds and inspire hope for those affected” by the Grenfell Tower fire that caused at least 80 deaths and more than 70 injuries back in June.
And while we are all on the same side at Game4Grenfell; on the side of the victims, their families, and the larger Lancaster West Estatecommunity, when asked by Game4Grenfell the following question, I have only one answer:
Damian Lewis’s goal for Grenfell Tower charity football match? Don’t get nutmegged!
By David Churchill – Evening Standard – September 1, 2017
Damian has one aim when he takes to the pitch for tomorrow’s Grenfell Tower charity football match — to avoid the kind of humiliation he suffered at the feet of one of the world’s greatest players.
Zinedine Zidane nutmegged the former Homeland star in front of 70,000 people at Old Trafford after Lewis clattered into him with a poor tackle during a 2010 Soccer Aid match.
This time Lewis, who grew up near Grenfell Tower, will be playing alongside stars including Sir Mo Farah, Olly Murs, Tinie Tempah and Alan Shearer at Loftus Road, home of Queens Park Rangers. Funds raised will go through London Community Foundation to the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund before being distributed to survivors, and towards community projects.

Damian Celebrates 46th Birthday at Anfield for Liverpool’s Visit of Tottenham
by Paul Gorst – Liverpool Echo – February 11, 2017
Hollywood star Damian Lewis returned to his Homeland on Saturday as he visited his beloved Anfield for Liverpool’s game against Tottenham.
The Billions star is a well-known Red, and the London-born actor was in attendance as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds prepared to entertain Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs .
However, after Will Ferrell’s appearance coincided with a 3-2 defeat to Swansea last month and the end of a 12-month unbeaten home streak, fans will be hoping Lewis’ visit proves rather more fruitful for Klopp’s men.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the red-haired Lewis holds an affinity for one of the most famous gingers in the Reds’ history, ‘Supersub’ himself, David Fairclough.
