How That Brief Cut to Brody’s Expression Did It: Nancy’s Story

Hello, everyone! Welcome to a new Fan Story Tuesday!

We have said time and again this blog has been a very rewarding experience and one major reward has been the beautiful friendships we have built over the almost two and a half years that we have been live. And Nancy is no exception. She and I “met” on Twitter and clicked almost immediately. And even though we “met” through our admiration for our favorite guy, an introduction to Nancy requires a mention of another guy whom you all probably know and admire, too: Roger Federer. Now, Nancy is a big Damian Lewis fan and you will truly love her story. Having said that she is first and foremost a Roger Federer fan. She does not only follow Roger’s career very closely but has also been extremely lucky to see some of his most important championships! And, yes, Nancy has a lovely big smile but I do not know if she ever smiled bigger than in this picture.

Nancy, I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to have met you and we cannot thank you enough for sharing your fan story with us. Cheers! Continue reading “How That Brief Cut to Brody’s Expression Did It: Nancy’s Story”

“Coup de Foudre” and Consequences: or How Agnes Met Damian Lewis

Hello all! Damianista here. Welcome to Fan Stories Tuesday!

Today’s story comes from Agnes who is a happy grandmother but also our own personal Wendy! 😀

Agnes is a retired clinical professor of psychiatry who organized the largest psychiatric volunteer program in the country as well as women psychiatrist groups. She and I had quite long and fun discussions about Wendy’s motivations on the blog. And you will see the reflections of her profession in her exploration of our favorite actor’s work. Big thanks go to Agnes for this lovely contribution to our Fan Story Series! Continue reading ““Coup de Foudre” and Consequences: or How Agnes Met Damian Lewis”

How Brody can make a woman forget about Brad Pitt: Analia’s Story

Hello, everyone! Damianista here. Welcome to a NEW Fan Stories Day!

One of the things that we love the most about our community is that Damian Lewis has fans from all over the world. We are delighted that a number of different nationalities are represented in our fan stories series. And, it is a true pleasure today to have Analia who is sharing her lovely story from Rosario, Argentina! Analia is as lovely as her story and huge thanks go to her for the constant support she has given us!

ENJOY! Continue reading “How Brody can make a woman forget about Brad Pitt: Analia’s Story”

Brody Arrives with a Breakup: Gozde’s Story

Hello all! Damianista is here to welcome you to a new fan story!

I have been living in the US for the last 21 years; however I was born and raised in Turkey. As much as my adopted country, in which I have spent most of my adult life, feels more home than my native country, I still have that Meditterrenean blood that is the anti-thesis of calm 😀

Almost two years ago, I could not help respond to a tweet done by a fellow Turkish woman living in London who was simply psyched to have booked very good seats to see Damian Lewis in American Buffalo. Her excitement put a big smile on my face, because I completely understood her. Continue reading “Brody Arrives with a Breakup: Gozde’s Story”

Joining the Band: Paige’s Story

Hello all! Damianista welcomes you to a NEW fan story!

One of the most rewarding things about doing this fan blog is meeting fellow fans with whom you hit it off immediately. And, Paige is certainly one of them. We first met online but then in person at Damian’s Times Talks in New York last summer and have been in regular touch since then. Damian made Times Talks a special treat for the audience with his delightful stories and brilliant sense of humor. There was a lot of laughter in the room and I believe Paige and I provide concrete evidence in the picture below 🙂

Paige is not only a great Damian Lewis fan, she is also a brilliant blogger. You should definitely check out her blog Maximum Tuneage and read about how she almost did anything for Damian Lewis and why I am her walking .gif 😀

Without further ado, here is Paige sharing her fan story: Continue reading “Joining the Band: Paige’s Story”

Another two in the hole

Holliedazzle and I have the great pleasure of bring up the derriere of the bloggers’ fan stories… I am hoping someone did indeed discover Damian in the Escapist, but I digress.

We all knew, that being quite new to Damian Lewis fandom, it was very likely that we all discovered Damian Lewis from the same TV show because of the same character, which is one of the reasons I am looking forward to reading your stories from next Tuesday onwards. Damianista is the only one who has read them so it is quite exciting.

Speaking of Damianista, a big thank you to her and Lady Trader for conceiving the idea. And stay tuned next week as the reader’s fan stories start rolling out, as well!

We may have discovered Damian via Homeland, but not necessarily the same way… Continue reading “Another two in the hole”
