“Is She the Tutor?” Or Throwback Thursday to American Buffalo Stage Door

Prologue

Hey all, Damianista here!

My husband Lewisto wrote this post about how he became a Damian Lewis fan a few years ago. While it is an extremely funny story centered around Damian, it is quite personal and says as much about the two of us as about Damian. That is why I am sharing it again this week marking our 24th wedding anniversary! Since it is Lewisto’s story I do not intend to give any spoilers but I cannot help say if you think of Carrie and Brody as the best cat and mouse you have ever seen… you ain’t seen nothing yet šŸ˜€

ENJOY!

Folks, I have a fun story to tell.

First, let me put the record straight: We are a lucky generation. Our life time has given us geniuses of all sorts, from Maradona to Michael Jackson, to Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Banksy, Steve Jobs, Mandela, Philip Glass, Haruki Murakami, Serena Williamsā€¦. and our very own Damian Lewis.

Damian takes quite a long break from stage – 6 years – after he does The Misanthrope with Keira Knightley and Tara Fitzgerald at Comedy Theatre. And after three seasons of Homeland, a season of Wolf Hall, three movies, an Emmy and a Golden Globe later, in 2015, heĀ makes a wonderfulĀ comeback to stage as Walter ā€œTeach Coleā€ in David Mametā€™s American Buffalo…Ā which also goes into history as the first (and second) time I see my favorite actor on stage.

“Is she the tutor?” or How I became a Fan of Damian Lewis, The Man: Lewisto’s Story

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

Most of you know Lewisto, my husband and partner-in-crime, who occasionally writes for Fan Fun. Today is Lewisto’s birthday and I thought it would be fun to share his fan story on this special day. Some of you may have read this story because we originally published it two years ago. However, since it is the story of how Lewisto became a Damian Lewis fan it truly belongs in this Fan Story Series.

You will notice that whileĀ it is an extremely funny story centeredĀ around Damian, Lewisto’s story is quite personal and it says as much about the two of us as about Damian. I do not intend toĀ give any spoilers but if you think of Carrie and Brody as the best cat and mouse you have ever seen… well, you ain’t seen nothing yet šŸ˜€

ENJOY!
