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”

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

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

As I’ve written before, I didn’t know who Damian Lewis was until Jennifer Lawrence went full-on fangirl over him on camera. Until then, I’d heard of Homeland only thru my Twitter timeline, taken over by live tweeters every Sunday night. And what you learn from following timelines for a show is 1) a lot of people you like to keep up with on Twitter watch a show, and 2) a lot of those people, when they are watching said show, are often reduced to exclamations of “OMG #Homeland”, “WTF #Homeland”, “Wow, didn’t see that coming #Homeland”, and the very informative “Can’t wait till next week #Homeland”.

So, JLaw’s unscripted display of awesome awe at seeing Brody on a red carpet combined with the wealth of information from my timeline drove me to pursue the show. I got the basic premise and players and knew it came from the folks who made 24, but, foolishly, before deciding to shell out the Showtime subscription, I started with trying to find clips on YouTube. All I found were music videos, and the kiss in the parking lot was immediately spoiled.

A Ginger Obsession Called Damian Lewis: Sonia’s Story

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

This week’s story comes from Sonia, a lovely fan from the UK who is as much a “dark horse” as me. Now, in case you don’t know what this means… Here is Damian providing an explanation at Times Talks London back in 2014 😀

Well, my dear Sonia, Damian may not go out with us after all but even THAT cannot stop us from loving the unlovable Soames Forsyte! So, without further ado, here is Sonia telling her fan story with a great sense of humor! Big thanks go to her for sharing her story with us. ENJOY!
