Damian was recently photographed with the MurWalls Team, a group of internationally licensed British street artists creating projects in homes, business and schools. They work with world-renowned brands to provide truly personal artwork of the highest quality. Sir HvH Arts Foundation, a charity Damian and the late Helen McCrory are a Patron of, admires their work. One can only wonder if this could lead to a mural honoring The McCrory Award. However, Sir HvH Arts has a graffiti art program as well. MurWalls not only gives businesses a perfect medium for making a statement, but also charities and community organizations.
Look what we have here! Damian and Gully were spotted in the new Riverside Stands at Craven Cottage for the Fulham vs. Liverpool match on the second day of Premier League. Liverpool’s opening line-up included: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Firmino and Diaz. Let’s go LFC! You Never Walk Alone. Final score? 2-2 draw.

Desert Island Goals
by Andrew Heaton | The Anfield Wrap | June 23, 2022
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:

Will Greenwood and Rupert Cox are joined this week by Billions star Damian Lewis to discuss his love of the Wales national team and how he deals with nerves and pressure. The Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor has starred in shows such as Homeland and Band of Brothers and is an avid rugby fan. He talks about playing fly-half in school and dealing with the pressures of fame. Lewis’ father is Welsh and he displays his passionate support of the national team during his conversation with Will and Rupert.
They also discuss one of Lewis’ other passions – Liverpool FC.
Looks like this ‘ole chap cheered on his Liverpool team on Saturday, January 11, 2020. He was spotted at the match by a couple of fans who captured the Red on social media. We see that LFC scarf peeking out from under your jacket!

The ‘Billions’ star on schooldays with David Cameron, playing conflicted characters — and rumours of 007
by Janan Ganesh | Financial Times | April 5, 2019
“What am I?” demands Damian Lewis, in the Yonkers vowels of Bobby Axelrod, the hedge fund manager he plays in Billions. “Chopped liver?” We have not fallen out. It is the presence of the item on the menu that sets up his riff on the Americanism.
The actor you also know as a Renaissance king (Wolf Hall) and an al-Qaeda convert (Homeland) is seated under a wall-mounted ram’s head in Fischer’s, a portal into antiquated Mitteleuropa on London’s Marylebone High Street, where it all but heckles the modernities around it. From a room that suggests an Orient Express dining carriage, Lewis looks out on to a Diptyque, an Aesop and a Bang & Olufsen as I ask him why British actors do so well in America. “It’s luck, it’s innate, it’s a bit of hard work,” he guesses. “It’s nothing to do with being classically trained.”
He admires Christian Bale (“There’s something quite extreme innately in him”) and vies with Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba in the bookies’ guesswork as to the next James Bond. Politely, he smiles through my thesis that Brits grow up hearing more accents than almost any other nation, honing an ear for them that amounts to a thespian advantage. If he is not quite sold, he is at least open to the idea of performance as a national trait. “Is there a clown in the British character that there isn’t in America? I think there is. There’s a clown in us somewhere.”
