Damian Lewis as an Onscreen Dad

Dad is a word which can evoke a minefield of emotions simply because the word is personal to each of us and our personal circumstances will affect whether the word evokes positive or negative emotions.

Being a Dad (in real life) can be all kinds of difficult and rewarding. With Father’s Day approaching we take a look at Damian Lewis as an onscreen Dad.

Brody Countdown 5: The “Other” Love Story in Homeland: Nick and Jess Brody

As Homeland Season 8, the last season of the show in which I “discovered” Damian Lewis, is fast approaching, we continue our tribute to Nicholas Brody, a character we have loved and still miss dearly!

I was inspired to write this particular post thanks to Tbkwrm’s inspiring lovely fan fiction in which she imagined Jess and Brody’s wedding day! And she got me thinking… She got me thinking hard about the “other” love story in Homeland that we never really witnessed except for little bits and pieces… So here you go: Nick and Jess Brody…
