Hey, it’s THAT time of the year again!

We’d just love to take the last ten days or so of the year to reflect on the wonderful year Damian has had personally and professionally and hope to make you re-live those moments and SMILE and SMILE BIG!
We don’t intend to rank the top moments as many “Best Of” lists do. And we just pick moments in which, we believe, Damian shines as a brilliant actor, a wonderful storyteller, a true gentleman or just a guy who knows to have a good time!
The Guardian has recently shared a video of Damian Lewis reading from John le Carré’s Our Kind of Traitor in celebration of the author’s first memoir The Pigeon Tunnel coming out this week. Thanks to an event I will write about today I know this particular section Damian reads is one of his favorites in the book! So I wonder if Damian himself chose to read that section here. ENJOY!
