Damian Lewis' late wife, Helen McCrory, is gone, but not forgotten.
The "Homeland" star paid tribute to the "Peaky Blinders" actress while appearing on "Good Morning Britain" on Thursday, June 9, calling her a "fabulous human being."
While speaking about her involvement in the annual Soccer Aid charity tournament in England, Damian also noted that Helen's influence continues to be everywhere.
"When she came to Soccer Aid the very first time [in 2006] and I got into my hotel room up in Manchester in The Lowry, it was covered in Union Jack bunting and England flags everywhere, which she had gone out and bought and decorated the room with," he said. "So, she's with us. … She's with us again this year."
The "Good Morning Britain" hosts praised Helen while chatting about a recent memorial held in her honor, which they both attended.
"She was a fabulous human being and people from all walks of life have been in touch to say what an impact she had on their lives," Damian shared. "That day we had the other day…was a special day, I'm very glad you could have been part of it."
He continued, "She was celebrated by, you know, her tribe, her profession, the acting profession — actors, directors, producers, writers — all showed up and she's much, much missed."
On April 16, 2021, Damian announced that Helen had passed away at the age of 52 after a battle with cancer. In an essay about his wife, Damian said the "Harry Potter" star managed to "spread happiness" as her time was coming to an end.
"Even when dying in her last few days, when talking to our wonderful carers, she repeatedly said, 'thank you so much' in her half delirious state," Damian penned in The Sunday Times. "I've never known anyone able to enjoy life as much. Her ability to be in the present and enjoy the moment was inspirational. Nor was she interested in navel-gazing. No real interest in self- reflection; she believed in looking out, not in. Which is why she was able to turn her light so brightly on others."
