    It's not Hugh Laurie. His wife is not an actress and she has no on-screen outfits.

    Is Damien Lewis' show on a network in the US? He's married to an actress.

    He's in Homeland on Showtime (?) right now and was the central character in Band of Brothers on HBO which was extremely popular.

    Since this is Popbitch, which is British, I bet they don't make the distinction between network and cable US TV.

    Damian Lewis and his wife Helen McCrory were my first thought too (she was Draco's mom in the Harry Potter films, Anna Karenina in the BBC miniseries and Cherie Blair in The Queen, among other things). Damian Lewis in on Homeland now, but was also in Life (on ABC) and Band of Brothers (HBO) so he's headlined projects for three different U.S. networks.

    I've actually wondered before why he seems so intent on working in the U.S. when, as far as i know, his wife still does mostly British projects.

    ^ Because he's a ginger? I feel bad for red heads over in the UK. They seem to get a lot more crap than here in the states.

    They do seem to fit this blind although i'm not sure if she is in a continuing programme or play at the moment so the colleague comment doesn't fit. I like Lewis and McCrory but I doubt many famous marriages are cheating free.

    Money , prestige , foot closer to film work and i'm sure his wife is willing to accommodate him.

    It's humorous.


    Sorry to shoot this guess down, but Damian Lewis is popular in the UK, it doesn't matter if he's in UK or US projects because he can act.


    There are a few Brit actors around, that guy off The Mentalist is Welsh & his wife is an actor too... Olwyn Yeoman... BRB... Wife is Lucy Davis. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_Davis

    No guess at the moment but Owain and Lucy are divorced.

    (Everyone I thought of had a non-actress wife, including Craig Ferguson.)

    Your right, they filed in the autumn.
    I'm always surprised though that he isn't American, I'm normally good at picking it up. They were just an example of "hidden" Brit actors that might be better known over here than known in the US for being Brits - if that makes sense?

    Normally Brits are much more talented than US actors, no question. Then why do I not like Damian or his acting? He is so self conscious, like Meryl Streep, he depends on certain tricks that drive me crazy.

    I'm not sure if they are more talented or just better schooled?

    I think that any actor incorporates certain personal physical gestures (etc) into their characters, maybe it's those you're spotting?
