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.

Gozde does not only have this BIG smile you see below but she also has a BIG heart. And BIG thanks go to her for sharing this lovely story that is as about Damian Lewis as about, quoting a great film, “the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” 😀
Well, my love story with Damian started in Homeland… He was my sweet gingerbread Brody whereas I was his “who- knows- crazy -Turk”
Homeland was recommended to me by my ex-boyfriend. It was his favorite TV Show. I was crazy about “Breaking Bad” at that time and didn’t have any specific interest in this TV Show. Then my boyfriend and I broke up quite badly and Homeland became my favorite TV Show. It was reminding me of him; certainly had a sentimental value with some rebounding effects. I think we Turks love melancholia and suffer ourselves with something relevant to our exes.
Then came Brody; with his strawberry blond hair, dazzling blue eyes, deadly cheeky smile and super cute freckles all over his face! He had replaced himself easily with my all time TV Boyfriend Ryan Gosling as well as removed the final residue of my ex 😀 Meh!
I must say I was mesmerized by Homeland and was in massive tears when I saw him hanged publicly.
I was over the moon when I heard he was going to be one of the main actors in the West End Show called “American Buffalo” alongside with John Goodman and Tom Sturridge. I have managed to get a private show ticket for journalists with a seating almost on a first row.
The best of all, I was sharing my utmost happiness through all social media tools and someone called ‘Damianista’ heard my happy voice. Coincidently another Crazy Turk with some well-known qualities and we became friends since then! Thanks to Damian…. He has brought a lot of good values into my life. Although, we don’t get to spend so much time together lately; our special affair will be a lifetime one for sure!
Long Live Damian!
