Damian Lewis 'drained and exhausted' after death of wife Helen McCrory | The Sun

HOMELAND TV star Damian Lewis has said he was drained and exhausted for “four or five months” after wife Helen McCrory’s death.

Helen, Polly in Peaky Blinders and Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, died of cancer aged 52 in April 2021.

Speaking of losing his wife of 14 years and mum of his two children, Damian, 51, told The Times magazine: “For four or five months, you’re physically drained.”

Helen was ill for four-and-a-half years.

Damian said: “Until the moment of death, you’re fully engaged in living the best possible life that can be lived for the person dying, and for you as a family and for the children.

"It takes an enormous amount of energy.”

Damian has branched out into music, creating his album Mission Creep, which he described as a “mini mid-life crisis”.

His latest role in Nicholas Elliott in A Spy Among Friends, created by Homeland's Alex Carey, is his first role since the death of his wife last year.

He has starred as Nicholas Brody in Homeland, as well as Army Major Richard Winters in the HBO mini-series Band Of Brothers, and as Bobby Axelrod on Billions.

After five seasons as 'Axe' on Billions he stepped down from the role to spend more time with his children.
