Finding “Ginger Prince” in Band of
Brothers: Connie’s Story

Hello, everyone! Damianista welcomes you to a new Fan Story!

Connie, a long-time Damian fan, certainly gets the well-deserved credit in adding “Ginger Prince” to our vocabulary and never ceases to amaze me with her attention to detail, be it the way Damian combs his hair, or a missing button on his coat 😀 She is amazing!

Ok I really need to tell this story!

It starts with a comment Connie makes about a picture we post from an interview Damian has recently given to CBS Sunday News.

“I see the man still has that yellow leather coat. He has been wearing it for ages (good color for him) and I’ve noticed of late it has all its buttons. For some time years ago there was one missing.”

I had no idea! 😀 But then I find this picture from about 12 years ago. Check out Damian’s second button from the top. Voila! Continue reading “Finding “Ginger Prince” in Band of

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”
