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 has had several career changes since then, however most of his work has been overshadowed by his most famous acting rôle. But he has done 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 pleased to announce that we will soon be offering mugs for sale to raise money for Lew's Help for Heroes fund. But before we begin production, we would like to have some indication of the level of interest among fans. So we would be very grateful if you'd let us know whether you would be interested in purchasing a mug, featuring an exclusive image of Lew for the price of £12.95. This amount would cover the cost of the mug, packing and postage in the UK, and a £5 donation to Help For Heroes. At this stage you are not obliged to make a purchase, we are just trying to get an idea of the numbers required.
Overseas interest is also welcome, however at present we do not have the full packing and postage costs.
You can email your interest by using the contact us link at the bottom of the menu on the left. Please let us know how many you think you'd require.
