Damian Lewis Fandom Has No Borders: Claudette, Florence, Mina, Rakel, and Vincienne’s Stories

Hello everyone! Damianista welcomes you to a NEW Fan Story Tuesday!

We have five short and sweet fan stories today attesting to a wonderful fact we know and love: Damian Lewis fandom has no borders! Claudette is from the US, Florence is from Taiwan, Rakel is from Spain, Mina is from Iran (she was extremely quick to detect my real first name is Persian!) and Vincienne is from Malta. And while they may be from different geographies and cultures they all fell in love with one particular character:

Nicholas Brody.

Without further ado, we give you their lovely stories. Thank you, ladies! Here’s to many more years of sharing Damian love together! Continue reading “Damian Lewis Fandom Has No Borders: Claudette, Florence, Mina, Rakel, and Vincienne’s Stories”

Nicholas Brody has LEFT the building… *UPDATED*

I bet, being a BIG Elvis fan, Damian would be proud of my title for this piece 🙂

Well, tell me, what could be a better day than combining a shopping trip to Ikea in Charlotte with a quick visit to my Homeland Mecca?

Even though Brody family resides at 3319 West Chapman Street in Alexandria, Virginia, Homeland was shot in North Carolina before they moved to South Africa for Season 4. They filmed the first three seasons mostly in Charlotte, a two-and-a-half hour drive from our house. And, I never even tried to visit the set thinking  they would always be there and I could always visit one day… Oh, yes, I did not see it coming – shoot me!

The Brody house was at the core of Homeland in many ways in the first three seasons. It is the place where it all started and also ended in a way… Continue reading “Nicholas Brody has LEFT the building… *UPDATED*”

All Her Big Loves Came as a Shock. So did Damian Lewis: Petra’s Story

Hi everyone! Damianista welcomes you to a NEW Fan Story Tuesday!

Today’s story comes from Petra, aka Lucky Fellow as she likes to call herself, a wonderful fan from Germany, who has been one of our very loyal readers and supporters. Our interaction with Petra is quite special since she always writes in German, and we google-translate her note to English and then respond. And how can you not LOVE this technology letting us overcome any language barrier and share our love and admiration for Damian Lewis regardless of who we are and where we are? And after all, we all speak the same language when it comes to Damian!

Petra sent me her fan story in German. I google-translated the piece and then did my best to polish it. I also sent a couple of sentences that google-translate did not do a good job with (word by word translation does not always work!) to Carolin, another German fan and friend, who very kindly helped me translate them. So please find Petra’s story below both in German and English! Big thanks go to her for this lovely contribution and to Carolin for her help with the translation. Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis at Harvest Festival 2013

“Let’s gather as a band of one, in symphony across the land…” Henry Birtles, The Harvest

I would love to take us all today to a special Harvest service, organized by British Food Fortnight to rekindle the tradition of Harvest Festival, at the Westminster Abbey in 2013, an event that Damian Lewis does not only attend with family — as a foodie, I cannot think of anything better than celebrating food with family, no wonder Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! —   but also actively participates in the celebrations and has a conversation with the Duchess of Cornwall, who is also in attendance, about the whereabouts of one certain Nicholas Brody! 😀 Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis at Harvest Festival 2013”

From Homeland to Shakespeare: Damian Lewis Narrates Audiobooks

This post is long overdue. We always hear fans say, and cannot agree with them more, that Damian Lewis can read the phone book and they can listen to him all day. Having said that, why would we have to hear Damian read the phonebook to us as we have much better books out there he could read for us?

YES! Damian narrates Audiobooks! If you have not tried it before, it is a total pleasure to have him read you a story. It feels like the equivalent of CBeebies for adults, highly recommended for bed time but also for anytime, doctor’s orders! And Damian has narrated a good variety of books that it is really easy to pick a favorite.

Shall we? Continue reading “From Homeland to Shakespeare: Damian Lewis Narrates Audiobooks”
