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 bloodĀ that is the anti-thesis of calm šŸ˜€

Almost two years ago, I could not help respondĀ 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”

Damian Lewis on Stage: American Buffalo

Damian Lewis is making a wonderful return to stage in Edward Albee’s late masterpieceĀ The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?Ā tomorrow and here is the last installmentĀ in our countdown. It is obviously a bittersweet end to our countdown with London in our minds and our hearts today. Please stay safe, everyone!

Damian takes quite a long break from stage – 6 years – after he does The Misanthrope with Keira Knightley and Tara Fitzgerald at Comedy Theatre. And after three seasons of Homeland, a season of Wolf Hall, three movies, an Emmy and a Golden Globe later, in 2015, heĀ makes a wonderfulĀ comeback to stage as Walter ā€œTeach Coleā€ in David Mametā€™s American Buffalo…Ā which also goes into history as the first time I see my favorite actor on stage.

“Is She the Tutor?” Or How I became a fan of Damian Lewis the Man Himself

Prologue

Hey all, Damianista here!

My husband Lewisto wrote this post about how he became a Damian Lewis fan last year. WhileĀ it is an extremely funny story centeredĀ around Damian, it is quite personal and says as much about the two of us as about Damian. That is why I shared it exactly a year ago on our 21st anniversary (day 1 being the day we started dating) and I am sharing it again today on our 22nd šŸ™‚ SinceĀ it is Lewisto’s story I do not intend toĀ give any spoilers but I cannot help say if you think of Carrie and Brody as the best cat and mouse you have ever seen… you ain’t seen nothing yet šŸ˜€

ENJOY!

Folks, I have a fun story to tell.

First, let me put the record straight: We are a lucky generation. Our life time has given us geniuses of all sorts, from Maradona to Michael Jackson, to Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Banksy, Steve Jobs, Mandela, Philip Glass, Haruki Murakami, Serena Williamsā€¦. and our very own Damian Lewis.

We have no intention whatsoever of ranking TOP Damian Lewis moments of the year;Ā however, one incomparably exciting moment in 2015 — well, all 10 weeks of it — was to have our favorite actor back on stage in an incredibly dynamic performance in American Buffalo.Ā In fact, Evening Standard agrees and includes Damian in itsĀ list ofĀ the most influential people in London Theatre in 2015.

Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis in American Buffalo!

teach15

AĀ recent article in Evening StandardĀ  mentioning a certain someone as one of the most influential people in London Theater in 2015 firstĀ inspired meĀ to do a throwback to one of the best stage performance I have ever seen in my life: Damian Lewis in American Buffalo!

And thenĀ I found a secondĀ inspiration at New Yorker Festival: I was lucky enough to ask the last question in the Q&A following the conversation New Yorker staff writer Lauren Collins had with Damian Lewis at New Yorker Festival. In fact, when it was my turn to ask, Collins said we were out of time. I don’t know what kind of a sad look I gave to her but she said: “OK, one more…” Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis in American Buffalo!”
