Homeland star Damian Lewis refuses to allow his children watch the hit U.S. show because of its grisly scenes.

The actor was joining British royal Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at London's Westminster Abbey on Wednesday (16Oct13) to celebrate a special harvest ceremony when he made the revelation.

Asked by the Duchess whether he lets his seven-year-old daughter Manon and five-year-old son Gulliver watch the spy show, Lewis replied, "No, certainly not."
