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

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

“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.”
