Damian Lewis - Damian Lewis: Homeland won't be popular forever

Damian Lewis thinks people will ''go off'' 'Homeland' soon.

The 41-year-old actor stars opposite Claire Danes in the critically-acclaimed drama series - which is currently in its second season - and though the show has won a string of awards and amassed millions of viewers, the British star doesn't think it will remain popular forever.

He told Vogue magazine: ''I'm quite sure everyone will go off 'Homeland' soon.

''When it gets to the seventh series and Claire Danes and I are like a twisted version of 'The Waltons', living in the middle of nowhere with our seven ginger children.''

Damian has previously spoken of how close he is to co-star Claire and insists he doesn't get embarrassed when they have intimate scenes together.

He said: ''I always invite her round for brunch - Eggs Benedict is my specialty.

''We don't even get embarrassed about our sex scenes - they're more like awkward adolescent gropes.''
