British actor Damian Lewis snapped a 'selfie' photograph with three war heroes at the Military Awards 2014 in London on Wednesday (10Dec14).

The Homeland star gave a thumbs-up as he posed with Corporals Ricky Furgusson and Josh Boggi and Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson, who all suffered severe injuries while serving in Afghanistan.

Lewis gushed about the heroic men, telling them, "You're all legends... You guys are amazing. You're the heroes. What you have done for me, for your country is incredible. You're the legends."

The emotional event, in honour of Britain's frontline troops, was attended by a host of stars including David Beckham, Dame Maggie Smith and Simon Cowell.
