A Greek Gal Finds Damian Lewis in a Greek Movie: Olga’s Story

Hello all! Damianista welcomes you to a NEW Fan Story Tuesday!

Today’s story comes from Olga, a wonderful old-timer in Damian Lewis fandom! Her first “meeting” goes way back to Brides, a lovely movie Damian made back in 2004, a movie that I also deeply love, and the rest is history 😀

Without further ado, here is Olga’s love letter to Damian from Greece. Thanks, Olga, for pouring your heart out in your story. S’agapo, my friend <3 Continue reading “A Greek Gal Finds Damian Lewis in a Greek Movie: Olga’s Story”

BEST of Life with Charlie Crews

Damian-Lewis-in-Life-Fill-It-Up-1-11-damian-lewis-25272631-1280-720

Hello – Holliedazzle here! Welcome, one and all, to the Life with Charlie Crews series wrap up! In this post, we’ll all be weighing in with our highlights (and lowlights) of the entire series. Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Damianista:

At the center of Life lies the heart and mind of a man who gets his life back, along with a $50M settlement and his LAPD badge, after 12 years in prison for a murder he did not commit. Charlie Crews is quirky and charming and funny, but vulnerable and even sinister at times. He’s a walking proof of the wide range Damian Lewis can deliver as an actor. No wonder New York Magazine calls him “the you-can’t take-your-eyes-off-him star” in Life. Damian takes a good network show and elevates it to another level.

Bobby Axelrod: The Boy Whose Dad
Never Came Back, Part III

source: Showtime

While Billions Season 3 shoot is starting in New York next month, we still have so much to talk about Season 2. So please stay tuned for our Billions posts discussing different aspects of our favorite show in the coming weeks and months as we follow the new season shoot as closely as possible!

Now, it is no secret I am fascinated by Bobby Axelrod’s backstory in Billions, in particular his family background. A few glimpses we had into the life of young Bobby in Season 1 made me think hard and deep about his past and write a two-part post here and here asking a number of questions I hoped to get answers for in Season 2. And one question I was dying to know the answer for was as follows — I copy and paste from my earlier post:

“So it was NO surprise for us when Axe revealed his dad “never came back” in Episode 11 Magical Thinking. Still, we don’t know if his dad went to Vietnam and never came back or if he just left home and never came back… Even though each scenario is brutal in its own way, dad is a hero in the former scenario and he is certainly not one in the latter.”

Season 2 did not only answer this question but also provided rich material to discuss how the heavy childhood trauma Bobby went through ultimately shaped him as a man, a husband, and a father. And here is my effort not to make a case for Bobby Axelrod but to understand why he does what he does.  Continue reading “Bobby Axelrod: The Boy Whose Dad

Happy Birthday, Helen!

This is a collective effort from Fan Fun team in throwing a birthday party for Helen on the blog. Hope you all enjoy it!

It’s quite easy to figure out why Damian fell in love with his better half: Beauty, talent and brains, a rare combination, seem to have come together and stolen our guy’s heart. The couple has been together for more than a decade, married for ten years and going as strong as ever. We wished them a Happy Anniversary more than a month ago here.

Homeland, Carrie and Brody, Was it Love?: Part II

Last we left, our couple had just met across a table and over files at CIA offices. Since then, Carrie Mathison has continued getting to know this mysterious Marine, Sgt. Nicholas Brody. Thanks to well-placed surveillance, she continues to get a head start on upcoming events by spending a few nights with her subject. Unbeknownst to him of course, but nights spent, nonetheless.

Who is this Guy that Looks like Steve
McQueen? Rachel’s Story

Hello, everyone! Damianista welcomes you to a NEW Fan Story Tuesday!

Today’s story comes from Rachel! I met Rachel on Twitter months ago and I have known she was a brilliant fan from London but I have recently found out that she is a TRUE friend, too. Well, look at this picture!

Rachel gave Damian the paper he holds at The Goat stage door saying HELLO to lovely Krista, a brilliant fan and one of our biggest supporters, who has not been able to see The Goat. This is one of the most beautiful gestures I have ever seen in my life. Hats off to you, Rachel, and thanks so much for taking the time to share your wonderful fan story with us! And, hey, I love your tshirt!  Continue reading “Who is this Guy that Looks like Steve
