Damian Lewis made a rare appearance with new girlfriend Alison Mosshart in New York City on Thursday, little more than a month after confirming their relationship. The actor has embarked on a new romance with the American musician following the tragic death of wife Helen McCrory to cancer in April 2021.
Stepping out for an infrequent public appearance with Mosshart in the city’s trendy SoHo district, Lewis, 51, looked relaxed in a black polo shirt and stone coloured chinos. The couple are thought to have met through mutual friends while in London and have grown increasingly fond of one another, Mosshart’s mother Vivian, 76, old DailyMail.com.
Speaking exclusively from her home in Florida, she said: ‘I don’t know how much flak I’m going to get for all of this but of course we are excited for her.‘They have mutual friends. I don’t know exactly how they met but I’m fine with it. If she’s happy, we are happy. I’m yet to meet him but certainly I’d like to.’
She got her start in music when she formed the pop-punk band Discount at the age of 17 alongside a few friends. Discount went their separate ways in 2000 and Mosshart formed the band she would become most known for The Kills alongside British guitarist Jamie in the same year.
Lewis and Mosshart were first photographed together in July at a swanky fundraising party for London’s National Gallery. The musician from Vero Beach, is best known as a lead vocalist for the rock bands The Kills and The Dead Weather.
