We reported earlier here that Damian was slated to appear as one of the guest Inspectors in the mystery play Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] at Park Theatre London sometime between July 15 – July 27, 2019. Reports are coming in via social media that tonight’s Inspector was indeed Damian! Our first clue was an Instagram video showing Damian sporting his Inspector’s trench, but sadly the original link is now broken (Fear not, we have a video. Keep reading!)

Whodunnit: A Theatrical Murder Mystery
by Press Association | Ludlow Advertiser | April 2, 2019
Gillian Anderson, Jim Broadbent and Damian Lewis appear in Park Theatre’s Whodunnit Unrehearsed. They are among the stars appearing in a new play – without having rehearsed or seen a script – at London’s Park Theatre this summer.
Whodunnit (Unrehearsed)will see a different guest performer step onstage each night with a rehearsed ensemble cast of a scripted murder mystery play, despite not having had any direction prior to their appearance. The only direction will come via a hidden earpiece to receive instructions as they attempt to solve the crime in real time. The mystery is not so much who the murderer is, but who the inspector will be. The audiences won’t know which celebrity is appearing each night until the start.
The Evening Standard corroborates stating,
“The actors all appear as the inspector in Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] and will be sent on stage without a script to join the rest of the cast and identify the killer.”
Described as a “murder mystery spoof” with “one hell of a twist”, the play is set in an isolated manor against the backdrop of a brewing storm. The setting is a classic 1950s murder mystery, an isolated manor, a body and a cast of characters that includes the Lord of the Manor, his wayward daughter, the housekeeper, and her son who is in love with the daughter. Then a mysterious stranger arrives.
Whodunnit (Unrehearsed) will be narrated by Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Judi Dench as a different celebrity appears each night.
Others confirmed to be taking part include Gyles Brandreth, Catherine Tate, Jim Broadbent, Simon Callow, Ronan Keating, Maureen Lipman, Juliet Stevenson, Tim Vine, Bradley Walsh, Adrian Dunbar, Matthew Broderick, and Meera Syal.
The stars are donating their time to support a fundraising effort, with money raised going towards the cost of keeping the Park Theatre – a registered charity – open to the public.

England is His Homeland
by Mary Sollosi | Entertainment Weekly | August 19, 2018
There have been a number of British actors that have done a phenomenal job convincing movie and television audiences that they are American with their spot-on accents. Of course we here at damian-lewis.com know Damian is British, but many new fans are still shocked to learn he is a native from across the pond. Perhaps it’s because Damian has been known to stay in his American persona both on and off the set, even while grocery shopping or guest appearing on a talk show, to some degree. Nevertheless, Damian has made Entertainment Weekly’s top 20 actors you forgot were British.
#11 – Damian Lewis
Don’t be fooled by his flawless American accent; the Billions star’s real Homeland is England.
