Damian Lewis - Damian Lewis Plays Vicar For Charity Comedy Sketch

Damian Lewis has found religion in his new role as a man of the cloth for a comedy sketch as part of Britain's Comic Relief annual fundraiser.

The Homeland star has teamed up with the cast of British Tv show The Vicar Of Dibley, who have reunited for the first time in seven years, and Lewis admits he was thrilled with the event as he grew up watching the show.

He tells the Bbc, "Some of my favourite actors are in the Vicar of Dibley and I grew up watching them on the Tv. Filming this has been a bit like filming on stage. We've rehearsed it a bit like you would if you were doing theatre because we shot it so quickly. It's got a lovely atmosphere to it."

The 10-minute episode, which will feature comedienne Dawn French reprising her role as female vicar Geraldine Granger, will air in the U.K. on Friday (15Mar13) as part of the annual Tv charity drive.
