Family

Parents

Father

Damian’s father is Watcyn Lewis. He is the city insurance salesman who had two biological sons with Charlotte but became the stepfather to her other two children from a prior marriage to another insurance broker.

Mother

Charlotte Mary Lewis is Damian’s mother. Charlotte died three days after her son’s 30th birthday in a car accident on the way to the Taj Mahal in India, where she’d been on vacation with her husband of three decades. She raised her children to be kind and thoughtful, and she always urged Damian to get married before the age of 35, but never to marry an actress. Lewis’s one great regret is that his mother did not live long enough to meet his gorgeous wife and did not get to be a grandma to his children.
