Damian Lewis has found love again. More than a year after the death of his wife, actress Helen McCrory, the comedian has formalized his new relationship. This Wednesday, July 6, he appeared on the arm of a famous rocker, Alison Mosshart at the House of KOKO. According to the mother of The Kill singer, the lovers met through friends in London. “I don’t know how much criticism I’m going to receive for all this, but of course we are delighted for her, she joked in the columns of the Daily Mail. They have mutual friends. If she is happy, we We’re happy. I haven’t met him yet, but I sure would love to.” Alison Mosshart is best known for being the lead singer of rock bands The Kills and The Dead Weather. She got her start in music when she formed the pop-punk group Discount at the age of 17.
Alison Mosshard and Damian Lewis were pictured together for the first time last May at a posh fundraiser for the National Gallery in London. A guest explained that they looked “100% involved in a romantic relationship – like they were on a date”. They were later spotted at the annual Serpentine Gallery summer party and then at the British Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone. In the arms of his darling, Damian Lewis honored a promise he had made to Helen McCrory. “I want daddy to have girlfriends, lots of girlfriends, you all need to love again, love is not possessive,” she told her children before she died of breast cancer at the age 52. But hey Damian, at least try to make it through the funeral without kissing anyone.” After the death of the actress, phenomenal in Peaky Blinders, he had paid tribute to him in the columns of the Sunday Times.

Made them laugh , always. There were few people funnier than her – she was really funny”, wrote the actor, notably known for his role in the series Homeland.
