Damian Lewis is spotted for the first time since his wife Helen McCrory's tragic death at 52

DAMIAN Lewis has been seen for the first time since the tragic death of his wife Helen McCrory.

The grieving Homeland actor, 50, hid behind sunglasses as he went out on a dog walk today.

His Hollywood actress wife Helen passed away peacefully at home aged 52 after a "heroic" battle with cancer.

She told few people about her diagnosis and continued with her charity work until a few weeks before her death.

Her bravery astounded Damian, who has spent the past three weeks caring for their heartbroken children following Helen's death on April 16.

Today he was seen walking his chocolate cockapoo with another woman and her black Labrador.


Devastated Damian wore a light jacket over his casual top as he strolled close to home.

It's the first time he's been photographed since announcing his wife's untimely death.

Damian, who has been married to the star for 14 years, paid tribute to his heroic wife, who bravely battled the disease in secret.

Announcing her death last month, he said: "I'm heartbroken to announce that after an heroic battle with cancer, the beautiful and mighty woman that is Helen McCrory has died peacefully at home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family.

"She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we loved her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you."

The couple have two children together – daughter Manon born in September 2006 and son Gulliver, who was born in November 2007.

They last month appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss their latest charity project with the Prince's Trust, where they are both ambassadors.

Caring Helen and Damian, who live in Suffolk, also helped feed frontline healthcare workers during the Covid pandemic.

Writing in the Sunday Times, 50-year-old Damian wrote after Helen's death: "Already I miss her. She has shone more brightly in the last months than you would imagine even the brightest star could shine.

"In life, too, we had to rise to meet her. But her greatest and most exquisite act of bravery and generosity has been to 'normalise' her death.

"She’s shown no fear, no bitterness, no self-pity, only armed us with the courage to go on and insisted that no one be sad, because she is happy. I’m staggered by her. She’s been a meteor in our life."
