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.

WE ARE 10!

On this date ten years ago , we launched as the Unofficial Lewis Collins Fansite, and here we are today, now the Official site and still going strong. For this landmark anniversary, we've decided to give the original website a facelift, so look out for many changes, e.g. pages disappearing and reappearing over the coming months. The new version will be phone-friendlier and retain the same feel but with a modern look.

In the meantime, why not join us over on our Facebook page, where we're celebrating with a new weekly quiz! How well do you know Lew? We'll find out when the first of Lew's Clues appears this weekend! Every Saturday at noon (BST, for now) a new question will appear, and you'll have up to midnight on Sunday to answer it. We'll publish the right answer the following Friday, just in time for the next weekend's question. There are no prizes, it's all just for fun and to make sure you're always thinking hard about Lewis. So join us this Saturday, 3rd August, for the first of Lew's Clues!

27th May, 2019
In celebration of Lew's 73rd birthday we have added our usual page of fan greetings. If you'd like to add yours to the page, please email us or use the form on the Remembering Lew page.
