Homeland's Damian Lewis rooting for Wales in Six Nations


Despite living in London, Damian Lewis backed Wales over England to win the Six Nations, he revealed.

The Homeland star said he considers himself London-Welsh due to childhood "brainwashing".

The Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning star said: "We have a strong Welsh connection in our family. We joke that we're London-Welsh."

Lewis, whose wife Helen McCrory also has Welsh roots, added: "We've got a house in Wales, we support the Welsh rugby team.

"I was supporting, in fact, the Welsh rugby team on Saturday, which is all part of my brainwashing as a child." Last weekend, Wales beat England 30-3 to win the Six Nations.

Lewis was speaking as he received the Freedom of the City of London today.
