Damian-Lewis.com originated as an off-shoot of the Damian Lewis Yahoo! Group (DLYG), an online fan community that started in September 2001 during the HBO broadcast of Band of Brothers. A few years later, a Coppermine gallery was developed to house the group’s expanding collection of images. This fan site launched in 2006 in order to pull together some of the group’s scattered pages and keep better track of the news and content produced by Damian’s fan community.

I am a fake-redhead academic moonlighting as a blogger. I have no kids so I am still the spoiled brat at home! Super fan of all things I like: Fiction. Running. Jazz. Theater. New York. Football. Wine. Travel. Did I mention Damian Lewis? Thought keeping a fan’s diary on him would be fun and started Fan Fun with Damian Lewis. Every post I write about Damian is also a piece of me — my life, my ideas, my dreams. Damian is the BEST procrastination ever. EVER.

Oklahoman. Native American Indian. Partial New Yorker by proxy. I am a Management Analyst, part-time Adjunct Professor and Computer Software Consultant by day and Damian Lewis aficionado by night. My left brain and right brain really have a sibling rivalry, don’t they? I ‘met’ Damian in Billions but trust me when I say, I’m all caught up now! I have chewed through his filmography like a termite feasting on the most plentiful, organic compound. I have scoured the earth like Khaleesi on her Dragon successfully locating all of his works, sans five. The rebirth of my Twitter feed from 2009 can be attributed to my dear Watcyn – everyday is a Damian hashtag day! My hobbies include theater/opera, film, (all the arts), American football, wine tastings, entertaining, reading and traveling.

I’m just a dilettante fluttering around from obsession to obsession. I took to twitter when 140 characters of creativity at a time was all I could manage. You know that scene in River Runs Thru It when the English teacher preacher tells his son to write an essay, and every time the son comes back thinking he’s finished, the father tells him to cut it by half and come back, then by half, then by half again, until there is that perfect economy of words that say exactly the right thing? That’s been my approach to twitter, pretentious as it sounds. And it’s been fun. But some obsessions require more than that perfect 140. And that’s where Damianista found me. Thankful as all heck that she’s given me this forum to discuss my love for this actor and the characters he plays. If there is any such thing as artistic justice in this world, Damian Lewis is not going anywhere. Thankfully, he’s giving us lots of material to think about and write about. And, thus, we’re not going anywhere. Welcome to the blog. Read, stay, comment, and feel free to love Damian Lewis and his work as we do.
