Damian virtually attended ‘Dexter Fletcher In Conversation’ celebrating Fletcher’s 50 years in show business, which also featured a screening of Fletcher’s latest directorial project Ghosted, at BFI Southbank on Sunday, June 4, 2023 in London, England. During the event Damian’s recorded video message claimed he modeled his career on that of Fletcher, who shot to fame aged ten in Bugsy Malone. Fletcher went on to star opposite Damian in the war drama Band Of Brothers before becoming a director of hit films including Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody. Those in attendance at the event included Sandy Powell, Jonathan Pryce, Taron Egerton and Rami Malek.

Damian’s recorded message that was shared at the event:
“I was watching you swaggering with your American accent, your baby blues, your charm, your confidence, your good looks. I thought, ‘Who is that guy? I want to be him.’ Now I’m in therapy, you’re a director, I’m trying to get a job off you.”
