IN the lane outside a Dumfries pub, a woman has just given Gary Lewis a sharp cuff round the ear. “That was for the bad thing you did,” she chides. The actor, his blue eyes twinkling, looks mock chastised. “You realise that wasn’t me?” he says, breaking into a grin. “That I was playing a character?” The woman purses her lips, her face softening a bit. “I know,” she concedes. “What you up to next?”
What indeed. Lewis is seldom idle. Or resting, as acting types call it. He’s currently gracing television screens in ITV crime drama The Level, which is halfway through its six-week run.
