Damian Lewis on The Anfield Wrap’s Podcast

Desert Island Goals

by Andrew Heaton | The Anfield Wrap | Twitter

Damian Lewis recently participated in The Anfield Wrap podcast with Andrew Heaton to discuss the three goals that decorated his time supporting Liverpool and mean the most to him, as well as chatting about his career to date. To listen to the entire one hour podcast, download The Anfield Wrap app from iTunes, walk through the sign-up in the app, get your verification code via email, then choose “50 tokens” instead of “subscribe” to listen. Unsure what 50 tokens costs or how that is tallied, but “tokens” is the way to hear just the episode instead of purchasing $10.99/month subscription to the entire podcast series.

Damian discusses the three pubs in New York one could frequent to watch “footie” while he was working in the States, as well as being served “a good English breakfast and Guinness.” They discussed Band of Brothers with its unreal cast and the fact that the television series is still talked about 20+ years later, with Damian saying, “It was a beautifully made bit of TV.” Moderator Andrew Heaton divulged his absolute favorite Damian Lewis role was Billions and then quipped, “…obviously it’s not as good now, you’re not there anymore so it doesn’t matter.” To which Damian replied, “You know, I mean, there’s one more season, that’s all I’m saying.” Heaton then states, “Hey, listen, I’m not saying nothing.” And then Damian repeats the statement again “All I’m saying is there’s one more season.” WHAAATTTT???!!!! Then Damian shared that Paul Giamatti is adorable, funny, smart, incredibly talented, a joy to work with and a total professional. When describing Axe, Damian claims that character is a “crim” (criminal) and total shit. LOL He goes on to say that Axe is Billy The Kid and Chuck (Paul Giamatti) is Wyatt Earp. Here is a clip but if you want to hear the real juicy stuff, you’ll have to listen to the full pod:

Damian Lewis Attends UEFA Champions League Final in Paris

The Real ‘Top Gun’ Remake

As any staunch fan would do, Damian attended the UEFA Champions League Final at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France on May 28, 2022 to see his beloved Liverpool Football Club play.  It was a punch in the gut for Liverpool in another heartbreaking finish to the season as Real Madrid’s second-half goal was enough to inflict a 1-0 defeat in the Champions League Final. It was the third time the two teams have met in the European Cup Final, but that’s not the full story.

Turns out Damian managed to get a seat on a club charter flight back from Paris only to find comedian, actor (Doctor Who) and former footballer John Bishop as a fellow passenger. Day two and more than six hours later, they have not moved from the tarmac and no amount of ham and cheese baguettes will satiate the hunger for home. Where is a working Tardis when you need one?

At this point, you can only turn this fiasco into comic relief as the two try and reach air traffic control from the cockpit. We hear they are going to pitch a new project to their agents as soon as they land – On Tarmac: A Sitcom.

Guess who was out and about to watch his fave Liverpool play? Damian was spotted at the UEFA Champions League match, round of 16, leg 2 of 2, on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool, UK. Liverpool lost 0 -1 against Internazionale Milano (Inter), but won by aggregate. In the first game, LFC beat Inter 2 – 0. In the second match, Inter beat LFC 1 – 0. LFC has more goals in total, so even though LFC lost this game, they will go on to the quarter finals. Damian posed for photos with many fans and even made a stop at Taggy’s, a unique LFC-themed bar on 21 Anfield Road. Whether Damian stopped by to imbibe for pre-game or post-game, who can tell?! 🙂 But we’re told some singing may have been involved. For more about Taggy’s Bar, visit their website here.
