Personal Quote:

[on Hailee Steinfeld] I think she has a natural awareness of what she needs to do in front of the camera. She's got that freshness and that immediacy which is so exciting. You can see it in her eyes all through her performance as Juliet. There's a real light behind her eyes. That's going to stand her in good stead for film acting. See more »

Trivia:

Despite being an Englishman, Lewis often plays characters who are in the U.S. Military. For instance: Maj. Richard D. Winters in the mini-series Band of Brothers (2001); Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody in the TV series Homeland (2011); and Major General James B. McPherson in the mini-series To Appomattox (2013).
