Damian and son were a part of the coverage at Anfield for the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Manchester City on April 4th.

They were pitchside ahead of the game to speak with the talent lineup that includes Gary Lineker, Steven Gerrard, and Frank Lampard. And Liverpool wins 3-0!

After a magical Liverpool night that lived up to every effusive word ever uttered about Anfield, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are now going to have live up to all the hype about them to turn this tie around. The Catalan will maybe have to produce his greatest feat of management yet, or something at least as wondrous as Jurgen Klopp conjured here for this coruscating 3-0 victory that itself will match anything this great old ground has seen in Europe. That’s the scale of the task for City in the second leg, that’s how magnificent Liverpool were.

It was amazing to think that the utterly thrashed visitors could be crowned the most commanding ever English champions as soon as Saturday, because it’s been a long time since they have been made to look this callow, this out of ideas, this poor. City’s night started with their bus getting smashed up, and just got worse. The only blemish for Liverpool is the second-half injury to the dominant Mohamed Salah, although Klopp said afterwards the player said he was “fine”. The real key, though, was that Liverpool successfully set a pace that City couldn’t match even when Klopp’s team began to naturally subside.

A household name both sides of the Atlantic, Damian Lewis came to international prominence starring in Band of Brothers, furthering his reputation in The Forsyte SagaLife and numerous stage plays. A consummate actor of theatre, film and television, his recent triumph in Homeland won him a Golden Globe and an Emmy. I tried to uncover a few pearls of wisdom from the most exciting British actor of the moment. Continue reading Damian Lewis: “I’m still trying to make it”, Epigram, May 20, 2013

How Damian Lewis Brought Out Kenny Dalglish’s Soft Side For Film ‘Will’ – Feb 11, 2011

For the Love of Liverpool

by Caroline Frost | Huffington Post | February 11, 2011

When the film Will was shown in the States, one effusive critic called it “the most wonderful, engaging and enjoyable movie I have seen this year”. Did actor Damian Lewis feel this same wave of warmth while he was filming the story?

“It’s just a very charming script,” explains Lewis, an actor familiar for more gruelling drama (Band of Brothers, The Forsyte Saga). “It tells the story of someone doggedly realising their dream, it’s positive and life-affirming. And you get to see the soft, cuddly side of Kenny Dalglish. What’s not to love?”

Hang on… what’s dour Scot and Liverpool team stalwart Dalglish (and Stephen Gerrard for the Merseyside aficionados) doing in what Lewis calls “a modern-day fairytale”? It appears that was all down to the actor having his own longtime ambition to fulfill.
