An Actor is Always Reinventing Himself Through His Characters
by Staff | London Calling | April 23, 2017
Having ventured from the hallowed halls of England’s most historic school to the very top of transatlantic television, Damian Lewis is returning to the city – and the stage – of his youth with a starring role in Ian Rickson’s revival of the Edward Albee-penned The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
As much as some people may find it a step too far to have a ginger James Bond, Damian Lewis has seen his name thrown into that ring many times. But while with his Old Etonian credentials it may seem like a natural fit, for the past few years the flame-haired thespian has owed his career to starring roles on the other side of the pond.

License to kill revoked? Damian Lewis reveals he’s had ‘no contact’ with James Bond bosses over the role despite being a favourite to take over from Daniel Craig

Ever since Daniel Craig’s stint as James Bond has come under question he’s been among the hot favourites to step into 007s shoes.
But Damian Lewis has revealed that despite being one of the public’s favoured thespians to play the British secret agent, he’s had no contact with studio executives regarding the films.
Speaking to Shortlist about his future prospects, the 44-year-old Homeland star revealed even though he’d be excited to be in the running for Bond he’s not actively pursuing the iconic role.
When asked if his role as an MI6 agent in new spy-thriller Our Kind Of Traitor was a public audition for the role, Damian revealed that Bond was the furthest thing from his mind while he was playing Hector.
Pressed on the topic of Bond, the actor explained that as far as he was concerned the role wasn’t about impressing 007 bosses, saying: ‘Not on my part, no.’
However, he did explain that it would be ‘exciting’ to be the new incarnation of Ian Fleming’s famous spy. Talking about the prospect of being offered the job, Damian conceeded it would be a thrill to carry a license to kill.
‘Well, it would be very exciting,’ he admitted. ‘But, you know actors never lose the excitement of being offered any job. It’s always exciting when you get the phone call.
However he also explained that he thought there was a ‘slight hysteria’ attached to the role.
