Actor Damian Lewis used his spare time during filming on the second season of Homeland to take tap-dancing lessons.

The 42 year old's Tv co-star Claire Danes reveals Lewis brushed up on his fancy footwork as they shot the tense spy drama last year (12) and he is such a natural singer and dancer, she wouldn't be surprised to see the Brit treading the boards on Broadway in the future.

She tells InStyle magazine, "I don't think most people know what a song-and-dance man he is. I suspect Damian's dream gig would be a Broadway musical, and he would be amazing. He actually took tap-dancing lessons throughout the filming of Homeland's second season."
