Damian Lewis Brightens the Screen in Queen of the Desert *UPDATED*

Well, Damian’s most recent tweet has made this post inevitable!

While the camel is not called Werner, we know from an interview clip shown on Danish TV  that Damian has made the following impression of Werner Herzog’s description of this film:

This film is like a camel, and an elephant and a bison on top of a donkey, and I’m the donkey. But together we will make a wonderful movie.

So the camel is quite central to the movie, but, hey, it blinked, and Damian won! 😀 😀 😀 Continue reading “Damian Lewis Brightens the Screen in Queen of the Desert *UPDATED*”

Now Out on DVD: Damian Lewis
Brightens the Screen in Queen of the Desert

Well, if you missed Queen of the Desert during its limited run in movie theaters, you can now own it on DVD!

In a nutshell, Queen of the Desert is a film about Gertrude Bell who had a pretty unconventional life, particularly as a woman, in early 20th century. She was a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, political attaché and a spy for the British Empire in the Middle East. She played a significant role in shaping the politics of the Middle East and drew up the borders of modern Jordan as well as Iraq. Think of more or less a female Lawrence of Arabia.

Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis at Berlinale 2015

I am happy to say “Ich bin ein Berliner” for the last couple of days. And exactly like JaniaJania and I did in London, I cannot help follow Damian’s footsteps in Berlin… Honestly, it is not that I follow him, but he comes and finds me everywhere 😀 Look at that!

Then I stand in front of the glorious Brandenburg Gate that has become the symbol of unified Germany since 1989, and I do not just think of history, but also of Damian saying his hotel room had “a pretty amazing view of Brandenburg Gate” when he was in Berlin for the World Premiere of Queen of the Desert at Berlinale 2015 😀

So I look around and find out there is only one hotel looking over Brandenburg Gate: Damian should have stayed at Hotel Adlon during his visit to Berlin, the MOST famous and probably the most expensive hotel in the city with some interesting history.

TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2015: Hand in Hand

If you feel the need you can debate who is making who look better, but I’m going to be diplomatic and say that Helen and Damian are just gorgeous together.

Quite honestly I have no idea how they manage to fit in everything that they do, but it is certainly true that life is not fun if you have no one to share it with. I’m sure Charlie Crews would in all likelihood give us a sad smile in agreement.

Chloe Fox of vogue described Helen and Damian in an interview from 2013 like this

“Separately, they are engaging. Together, they are a little bit intoxicating.”

So, with that wonderful quote in mind, the last blog of 2015 is looking back at our favourite couple hand in hand at various points throughout the year.

65th Berlinale International Film Festival

The couple attend the Berlinale for the premiere of Queen of the Desert in which Damian plays Charles Doughty-Wylie. Damianista actually posted about the Berlinale as an individual top moment for Damian as well.
