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.
Look who was spotted at the first Premier League title race six-pointer of the season to watch the Liverpool vs. Chelsea match at Anfield on Saturday, August 28, 2021. Damian and son Gulliver were spectators in the crowd rooting for The Reds in search of a win. Chelsea took the lead in the first half, then Mo Salah converted a spot kick to tie the scoreline. The match ended in a stalemate.

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!

A Shoutout to Liverpool
by Damianista | damian-lewis.com | May 31, 2019
Damian’s beloved Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Spain on Saturday, June 1. The two English Premier League heavyweights met two times in this year’s Premier League with Liverpool winning 2-1 both times. Five-time winners Liverpool will be aiming to get their sixth title whereas Hotspurs will be playing to win their first!
Relying on Damian’s earlier tweet we assume he will be in the stadium tomorrow cheering for his Red Men!
Holy crap football’s on crack. Congrats @SpursOfficial and to my pal @stephenkunken (you still owe me $20) for a mighty performance. Always liked Spurs and I’m delighted for you but fun’s over now. @LFC and I will see you in Madrid.

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.”

Liverpool Football Club Has a Fan for Life
by Ted Winters | The Sports Daily | October 12, 2018
Celebrities often get behind and endorse their chosen sports team on a regular basis that provides a wealth of additional exposure that can only go down as a major marketing boost.
But which of the top five Premier League clubs has the biggest fan to help pack the ultimate marketing punch?
Liverpool can boast a plethora of famous supporters (Liam Neeson, Lana Del Rey, Mike Myers) all around the world but probably the hottest right now is Damian Lewis.
The actor can be seen everywhere at the moment and refuses to keep his colours close to his chest often spotted at Anfield when he gets the chance.
It turns out that singer, actor, dancer and ladies man Justin Timberlake is a fan of the Red Devils.
The former NSYNC star is often captured sporting a Manchester United beanie and quite simply due to his huge following can attract millions of eyes upon the red club of Manchester.
Although the Red Devils following is huge, any extra little help is never a bad thing.
Without doubt the Citizens most vocal supporter is former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher.
His brother Liam is also a stanch City fan, but it is Noel who is often spotted at the Etihad stadium and is a regular on sports radio shows chatting about his beloved club and heaping praise on the current crop under manager Pep Guardiola.
No surprise, as we reported yesterday, that Damian would attend the 2018 UEFA Champions League final today, Saturday, May 26, 2018 at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine in support of his favorite football team, Liverpool, in the LFC vs. Real Madrid match. Damian posted this video to Twitter as he boarded the plane headed to Kyiv.
Damian has been a longtime fan of LFC since childhood – he took part in the coverage at Anfield for the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Manchester City on April 4 and last year he celebrated his 46th birthday at Anfield for Liverpool’s visit of Tottenham.
An avid Reds supporter, Damian (pictured with Clive Owen above) made the epic journey to Kyiv in the hope of being witness to a historic battle to take the UEFA Champions League trophy for the sixth time. But it wasn’t meant to be. Although his Redmen lost to Real Madrid 3-1 and no doubt he was gutted, Damian showed resilience in defeat by offering sportsmanship for his team and fans abroad.
