Happy Birthday, Helen McCrory! TOP DOZEN Reasons to Love Her

“Actually, I’m looking forward to being 50, because to me that’s when a woman is at the pinnacle of her femininity and her womanhood.” —Helen McCrory in an interview with The Independent

Thanks to recent interviews with Helen in The Telegraph and The Times, we have found out about her 50th birthday celebrations!

“Discovering” Damian Lewis through His Better Half: Martina and Heather’s Stories

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

Most of us joined Damian Lewis fandom after seeing him in one of his major roles such as Major Winters in Band of Brothers or Nicholas Brody in Homeland.

And, today, we have two fans who noticed our favorite actor through his better half, beautiful and ridiculously talented Helen McCrory! So, without further ado, here is Martina and Heather sharing with us how they became Damian fans through Helen. ENJOY!
