Welcome to fans old and new

This is the official fansite of Lewis Collins, the British actor, bassist, charity fund-raiser, director, drama teacher, drummer, film-maker, flautist, guitarist, hairdresser, judo-ka, marksman, motorcyclist, paratrooper, pianist, pilot, poet, scriptwriter, shodan jujitsu-ka, singer, skydiver, songwriter, voice artist...and a few other things.

Lewis started off in 1959 as a drummer, at the age of thirteen. He had several career changes from then, however most of his work has been overshadowed by his most famous acting rôle. But he did so much more than most people realise, and this site aims to celebrate all his other work, before, during and after the show that made him a household name.

It is a work-in-progress - we started off as a skeleton with just the bare bones, but we're fleshing it out with regular updates until it is a big, fat, comprehensive guide to the fifty-year career of one of Britain's most respected and beloved actors.

Permanent Notice

On behalf of Lew's agent and family, we would like to make fans aware that a decision has been made to keep Lew's autobiography in the hands of his sons as a personal memoir to their dad, and not for publication. If this should change at any time in the future then we will of course let you know straight away, but for now, it will not be publicly published. We know fans will be disappointed to hear this news, however we still have a lot of Lew's acting and singing to enjoy, and here at the official fansite we continue to search out little snippets of knowledge to add to the website biography and to this page. Our admiration for Lew and his work goes on!
