A year after the death of his beloved wife Helen McCrory, it appears Damian Lewis may be ready for love again after the actor has been spotted out and about with rocker Alison Mosshart

Damian Lewis is reportedly dating again after being spotted out with American rock star Alison Mosshart in London.

The Homeland actor, 51, was previously left heartbroken following the passing of his beloved wife Helen McCrory, 52, in April last year.

Helen, who was known for her roles in Harry Potter and Peaky Blinders, died after a secret battle with breast cancer.

Just one year after the tragedy, it appears Damian is ready to find date again after being pictured with 43-year-old Alison.

In pictures obtained by The Mail on Sunday, the pair were seen smiling whilst travelling on a London Overground train last week.

Dressed in a dapper tweed blazer and green trousers, Damian put on an animated display as he chatted away to Alison and a pal with a cocktail in hand.

According to an onlooker, Damian and Alison looked "100 per cent romantically involved – like they were on a hot date".

"But after all he's been through it is lovely to think he's found someone new. They looked really happy together."

Alison is an American songwriter and the lead vocalist for The Kills - an indie rock band founded by the star and Kate Moss' ex-husband Jamie Hince.
