Damian Lewis' dapper Aquascutum ads

Damian Lewis gets intimate with young model Eliza Cummings in the Fall/Winter 14 Aquascutum campaign.

The English actor is best known for portraying American character Nicholas Brody on drama show Homeland.

But the star has gone back to his roots by appearing in the British brand's Fall/Winter 14 campaign.

And the label is truly celebrating the UK by embracing its tendency for wet weather in a shot that shows 43-year-old Damian huddled under an umbrella with model Eliza Cummings. While the 23-year-old brunette looks moody to be caught in the rain, staring at the camera with a straight face, the redheaded actor manages a little smile.

The clothes are sophisticated and classic, with Eliza in a light-coloured coat, while Damian is wearing a black belted one in one of the black-and-white shots.

The pair were snapped strolling down Regent's Canal in London and the label describes the premise of the shoot as "an intimate stolen moment, just steps away from the hustle and bustle of the city".

In a further photo, Eliza looks like she is leaning in to a kiss with her campaign co-star, who is looking at her adoringly.

Damian is also pictured alone, once smiling at the camera and once gazing off to the distance pensively. In all shots he is dressed in a smart coat.

The shots were taken by photographer Alasdair McLellan.

This isn't Damian's first time wearing Aquascutum. His character Hector in upcoming drama movie Our Kind of Traitor is dressed head-to-toe in the brand.
