LONDON (AFP) – Prince William revealed Wednesday that he and his wife Kate are fans of hit US television series “Homeland” as he awarded its British star Damian Lewis a royal honour at Buckingham Palace.
“He said, Catherine and I are huge Homeland fans,” Lewis told reporters after his brief meeting with the royal. “I m amazed they have time for that.”
Lewis said receiving the Order of the British Empire (OBE) was “a big, big surprise” and said it was a bit like being given additional responsibilities as a school prefect.
“Now I have to be extremely responsible,” he said, laughing.
The 43-year-old actor is best known for his role as Marine sergeant Nicholas Brody and was previously in the hit period drama “The Forsyte Saga”
