Couple hope to finally please their toughest critics who are ‘remarkably unimpressed’ by careers as they take on roles in new children’s comedy.
Between them, they have taken on some of the biggest roles of stage and screen, from the National Theatre to Harry Potter and the most acclaimed US drama. But Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory now hope to finally impress their toughest critics: their children.
The couple have taken on roles in Bill, a new children’s comedy about William Shakespeare, after they fell in love with Horrible Histories as a family.
Lewis – who has previously appeared in Homeland, Band of Brothers and Wolf Hall – said his cameo appearance has won the seal of approval of his two children, who are usually “remarkably unimpressed” with their parents’ work.
