'Forsyte Saga' star Damian Lewis and son launch toddler fun walk

22 MAY 2009
Although he spends much of the year in LA, when he's back on home turf Forsyte Saga star Damian Lewis likes to get involved in British causes. The dad-of-two - who's currently appearing in US series Life - took along along his younger child, 18-month-old Gulliver, to a toddler fun walk initiative in London.

Flame-haired Damian splits his time between the US and the home in St John's Wood he shares with Gulliver, his British actress wife Helen McCrory, and their two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Manon. The sponsored 'Big Toddle' he was supporting raises funds for Barnados.

Making her first celebrity event appearance at the event was Petal Blossom Rainbow, the seven-week-old daughter of Jools and Jamie Oliver. The little girl slept through most of the photocall, but briefly opened her eyes when snappers took individual shots of her and her 34-year-old mum.

Other famous parents at the event included Cold Feet actress Fay Ripley, who'd taken her three year-old Sonny with her, and Teachers actor Andrew Lincoln, who brought along his one-year-old daughter.
