Birthplace: London, England, UK

British born actor Damian Lewis transitioned from work on the London stage to major roles in American film and television projects, working with the likes of Steven Spielberg and Lawrence Kasdan. Trained at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Birmingham Repertory Company, Lewis gained prominence in the U.S. with an utterly convincing performance as a stalwart G.I. in the heralded miniseries "Band of Brothers" (HBO, 2001). Unfortunately, his first leading role in a major motion picture, the bizarre adaptation of Stephen King's "Dreamcatcher" (2003), failed to carry the momentum. Regardless of the material, Lewis' performances were always given high marks and before long he was cast as the star of the well-regarded crime-drama series "Life" (NBC, 2007-09). Although the Writers Guild of America strike of 2007 had a devastating impact on the short-lived show, the actor found more small screen success a few years later alongside Claire Danes in the thriller series "Homeland" (Showtime, 2011- ). His perfomance as the troubled Nicholas Brody, who may or may not be an Al-Qaida operative, brought the actor an Emmy for Best Actor. Whether portraying one of Shakespeare's classic characters or a modern American hero, Lewis could be counted on to elevate any project he chose to participate in.

QUOTES FROM Damian Lewis CHARACTERS

Gary Winston says: God, Jean I don't know what happened. But I feel like a redness or something comes over me and I feel like you've backed me up in a corner and I...I...you do that and I hate it when I'm like that. I'm sorry.
