Yesterday I interviewed Damian Lewis, star of Wolf Hall and Homeland, for Metro. What did I learn? That he has moved out of his house (formerly Hugh Laurie’s) in Tufnell Park. But only to get it decorated.
What else? That he has no plans to join the infamous ‘Primrose Hill set’. “No, I think we’ve decided we like where we are,” he told me from New York, where he’s shooting Billions, a new TV series from the makers of Homeland (out in January).
But perhaps most importantly, I learnt that he’s a fan of this very publication. Remarking that I lived locally, he said simply, “Do you write for the Kentishtowner? You should.”
When I asked if he was a fan, he said a definitive “yes.” So look, here I am.
“It’s a really lovely neighbourhood full of interesting and smart people who do a whole host of different jobs,” he said.
Couldn’t put it better myself.
