Damian Lewis is sighted at work for the first time after Helen McCrory’s tragic death.
DAMIAN LEWIS has been spotted returning to work four months after his wife, Peaky Blinders actress Helen McCrory, died tragically.
Damian Lewis, 50, has been spotted bravely returning to set four months after his wife Helen McCrory died of cancer at the age of 52, leaving him heartbroken. For the first time since the terrible loss of the Peaky Blinders star in April, the actor was seen at work today.
When Damian returned to work, he was spotted happy and conversing with his coworkers on set.
While in character, the celebrity was also seen appearing active and engaged on his role.
Damian was in London filming the Sky TV series Billions, in which he plays hedge fund mogul Bobby Axelrod.
Asia Kate Dillon plays a non-binary character in the series, making it the first non-binary character on American television.
Away from work, Damian has been caring for his and Helen’s 14-year-old daughter Manon and 13-year-old son Gulliver while they grieve the loss of their mother.
In an essay for The Sunday Times after announcing Helen’s death, Damian stated that Helen had advised him to find love again.
He remembered her telling him and their kids that she wanted “Daddy to have a lot more girlfriends.”
Damian conceded, “She has been truly heroic in her illness.”
“Witty, generous, courageous, and uncomplaining. Her kindness has been extended to us by urging us to live. Live fully, seize opportunities, and go on new adventures.”
Damian had previously expressed his pride in his and Helen’s efforts to raise more than £1.5 million for the NHS just months before Helen’s death.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the pair assisted by bringing meals for doctors and nurses who were working on the front lines.
“We raised almost one and a half million pounds and at the end of it, we were providing 40,000 meals a day to a hundred different hospitals around the UK,” Damian recalled on the Out to Lunch podcast at the time.
“It all started with a talk with a friend, and he said, ‘Look, we’re great at looking after patients, but we’re terrible at looking after our own staff, can you think of any way we can feed them?’
“I am really glad we did it, and I have a lot of respect for folks who volunteer their time to help others.”
