Damian Lewis inspires fans in several different ways and we do our best to show this daily on Fan Fun with Damian Lewis.

Finally, BIG THANKS go to Damian Lewis for the inspiration and for telling us he reads us. He could not have made us happier.
A fake-redhead academic moonlighting as a blogger. No kids so still the spoiled brat at home! Super fan of all things I like: Fiction. Running. Jazz. Theater. New York. Football. Wine. Travel. Did I mention Damian Lewis? Thought keeping a fan’s diary on him would be fun and here we are. Every post I write about Damian Lewis is also a piece of me — my life, my ideas, my dreams. Damian Lewis is the BEST procrastination ever. EVER.
I’m just a dilletante fluttering around from obsession to obsession. I took to twitter when 140 characters of creativity at a time was all I could manage. You know that scene in River Runs Thru It when the English teacher preacher tells his son to write an essay, and every time the son comes back thinking he’s finished, the father tells him to cut it by half and come back, then by half, then by half again, until there is that perfect economy of words that say exactly the right thing? That’s been my approach to twitter, pretentious as it sounds. And it’s been fun. But some obsessions require more than that perfect 140. And that’s where Damianista found me. Thankful as all heck that she’s given me this forum to discuss my love for this actor and the characters he plays. If there is any such thing as artistic justice in this world, Damian Lewis is not going anywhere. Thankfully, he’s giving us lots of material to think about and write about. And, thus, we’re not going anywhere. Welcome to the blog. Read, stay, comment, and feel free to love Damian Lewis and his work as we do.
Proud ginger and a very big fan of a fellow red head, a certain Damian Lewis, who has so much to say whether with or without words.
When we are young we are told what we will be learning. When we are older we can choose. Still, it is safe to say that I never expected to be attempting to navigate stock market jargon. When we are younger we may complain about having to learn. When we are older we recognise that learning can be fun.
Hooked on reading and writing Fan Fiction. I am literally a Bookworm. Matilda is my idol. Glue the hat, every time!
I’m a twenty something Taurus with an English degree, curly hair, and an old soul, and I take misfitting to a whole other level. When I’m not writing (both fanfic and freelance) or catching up on my shows, I’m procrastinating, reading, sleeping in, or spending way too much time online. I fell hard for Damian Lewis thanks to Homeland, and feel very fortunate to have found this blog and a few amazing folks to chat and gush about this amazing actor with. 🙂
Born and bred in Brooklyn, NY and not afraid to say it! I am very fortunate enough to be able to say that my job is something I love to do: trade! Hence, the name Lady Trader. I’ve been working on Wall Street since 1988 at the tender age of 17. From starting as a secretary, to finally running my own money, it has been a wild ride, and a great learning experience! However, I also love reading, sports, music, politics, sci-fi, history, and watching good solid acting! And you can’t get better than the namesake of this blog. My enjoyment of Damian Lewis’ acting and characters (Brody, Charlie Crews & King Henry VIII) led me to find Damianista and the group. With Billions being set in the world of high finance I volunteered any help or insight that would help. And the rest, as they say, is history! I hope you enjoy my contributions as much as I enjoy writing them!
A life long lover of gingers, Holliedazzle hails from the midwest and spends her free time cosplaying, indulging in all her geeky interests, and also on the stage as a burlesque performer! Also a mother to one sweet little boy, and wife to her own foxy ginger man She discovered Damian through her husband’s recommendation to try out this new show “Homeland”, who starred an actor that had been on his radar since “Band of Brothers” became one of his all-time favorite shows. So, really, its all his fault that she’s here! 😛
