Damian Lewis: Spy Wars

Homeland's Damian Lewis looks at real life spies in HISTORY'S new docu-drama

The actor was initially reluctant when his brother, Gareth ­­– one of the executive producers of Damian Lewis: Spy Wars – asked him to present. “I hadn’t done factual [before] and I don’t consider myself a presenter.

“But I enjoy the [spy] genre and I thought it was an opportunity to look behind these popular stories and see if we could unearth something a bit more intimate about the people themselves, and the ramifications on global politics of very personal decisions taken by individuals.”
