DOMINIC West looked steadfast as he posed on a speedboat in a James Bond-style trailer for his new show.
The macho display comes just over a week after the 50-year-old married actor was caught kissing his 31-year-old co-star Lily James on a beloved vacation in Rome.
The nifty video promotes Amazon Prime’s The Wine Show, which premieres next week, and was filmed before the scandal broke.
In the clip, Dominic is seen in a smart suit and sunglasses as he guides the speedboat along the Douro River in Portugal.
He then exchanges the boat for a Porsche and heads to the Quinta Do Noval vineyard to enjoy a leisurely glass of wine.
The star’s wedding ring is notably absent from her left hand, which is not unusual as Dominic often does not wear the jewelry.
The promo comes after The Sun revealed that Dominic’s 10-year wife, Catherine FitzGerald, had fled to her mother’s house in Ireland as friends said she needed “space.”
Catherine joined forces with Dominic the day after photos of him broke up with Lily, insisting their marriage remained strong.
But she is said to feel “humiliated” after a second set of photos showed them looking comfortable at the airport.
The friend told us: âCatherine did her best to be brave, but finally seeing a second set of photos made her feel even more humiliated.
âIt’s been so hard on her and she even shocked herself at how dignified and gracious she has been throughout it.
“Taking her to her mother’s house is giving her time to really think about everything and how they can deal with it.”
Dominic confirmed earlier this week that landscape designer Catherine traveled to Ireland on her own.
He said, âShe’s on a business trip. She left on her own.
Asked if the couple were still together, the The Affair star insisted, âOf course we’re very together. Our relationship is going well.
Catherine is expected to quarantine herself for a fortnight at her family’s ancestral home, Glin Castle, in Limerick.
Lily, who shoots the BBC adaptation of The Pursuit of Love with Dominic, has yet to comment – and has stepped down from a string of public appearances.
A source told New! magazine Dominic had told his wife that his privacy and Lily’s was due to a “midlife crisis” and that he is desperate to “catch up with her” for the sake of their family.
The couple are mom and dad to Dora, 13, Senan, 12, Francis, 11, and Christabel, seven.
Dominic also has an older daughter from a previous relationship.
Lily and Dominic, who play a father and daughter in upcoming BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love, sent shockwaves when they were seen kissing and cuddling while on vacation in Rome last weekend with Dominic at one point getting his hands on Lily’s butt.
The duo were spotted spending two nights in a suite at the top of the chic Hotel De La Ville in Rome.
In the photos, Dominic is seen stroking Lily’s hair as they have lunch together and smiling at the beauty before leaning in for a kiss.
At the time, it was reported that Dominic’s wife remained “devastated and heartbroken” – this confirmed that she and Dominic were still together after they tied the knot in 2010.
But the next day, the couple held a love exhibit outside the family home where they insisted they had a “strong marriage,” Catherine even kissing her husband before handing over a handwritten note claiming that they were always happy together. .
Meanwhile, The Sun revealed earlier this month that Lily has split from The Crown actor Matt Smith for good after trying to rekindle their locked-out romance after their split last year. after a five year relationship.
Lily had previously been defended after being called a “household breaker” by critics, with irate fans pointing out the criticism’s “sexist double standard” and that Dominic was the one who was unfaithful.
Dominic first rose to prominence in the hit American series The Wire in 2002 before playing a cheating love affair in The Affair between 2014 and 2019.
The steamy Sky Atlantic series saw the British actor play Noah, who cheats on his wife – and the mother of his four children – with a waitress he meets at a restaurant.
