Well, he may not be the best on-screen father to Dana and Chris, but we know Damian Lewis is a GREAT real-life dad 🙂

How come we know that? No, our favorite guy does not go around saying how great a dad he is… His wife, Helen McCrory though tells Daily Mail:  “I realise how lucky I am, having talked to other mothers, that Damian gets involved in his children’s day-to-day lives. In two months of filming Homeland, he’s flown back home four times in his few days off. Although that’s tough on him, it makes such a difference.” Continue reading “Happy Father’s Day to Damian Lewis!”

For Father’s Day: Damianista’s Heavy Baggage…

Damianista’s note: This is probably the most personal post that I ever share on this blog. I just have to get this out of my chest. Thank you, Damian Lewis, for the inspiration.

Father’s Day is just two days away. It’s a day that I have not been able to celebrate for a long time… 35 years to be precise.

Damian Lewis once said: “My mother’s death is the single most important thing that’s happened to me in my life.”

I cannot agree with him more. My father’s death is probably the single most important thing that’s happened to me in my life, too: A death that occurred under the most unexpected circumstances, on a family vacation. Continue reading “For Father’s Day: Damianista’s Heavy Baggage…”

Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis in Desire

Hello all!

Recent internet frenzy about Damian Lewis smashing the “Next James Bond” bets makes it extremely tempting to share this blog post once again with you! Regardless of Damian becoming the next James Bond or not (does it really matter? We know he will do a brilliant job with whatever job comes his way), he starred in a short movie called Desire — and the protagonist Sidney Clark is, in fact, sort of a James Bond parody. So, why not enjoy it in celebration of this exciting rumor that has given us so much FUN this week? ENJOY!

Damian Lewis is a good friend of Jaguar. He first unveiled the Jaguar F-type roadster in 2013. Then he appeared in a short action film called Desire by Ridley Scott Associates and Jaguar in 2013 to promote the all-new 2014 F-type roadster.

Pongo Opener Finishes with an Impressive Half Century: Or, Damian Lewis Plays Cricket

Many actors have personal trainers and personal chefs keeping them in fit employable shape. Damian Lewis may have these advantages too for all we know. But more likely (and evidence confirms) that he maintains his footballer’s body by….playing football.

Rumor has it that Damian Lewis is in “the running” to be the next James Bond. What do I feel about it? My partner JaniaJania’s tweet says it all about what I feel:

It’s a rumor. So probably not true. But an EXCITING and FUN rumor. Because… well, Damian Lewis is Damian Lewis. If he became James Bond, he would bring to life a 007 that no one has ever seen before — yes “he’d be the most emotionally accessible and human superhero ever.”

Then again it’s a rumor and we don’t even have to take it seriously but why not have some FUN with it? And, of course, as the great man 007 himself said:

“Never say Never.” Continue reading “Name is Lewis. Damian Lewis.”

Only a few generations removed from their farmer ancestors, the family members are very much aware of their status as “new money.” The main character, Soames Forsyte is nicknamed as a “man of property” in the family by virtue of his ability to accumulate material possessions — but this does not bring him pleasure in his marriage to his beloved Irene or in life in general.
