Hello from Finland!
Permalink   
 

My name is Johanna and I'm big Damien fan.

It all started when I was really bored and wanted to watch some new tv-shows. Then I started to watch Being Human and I was hooked. It is really hard here watch anything U.K series cause they don't make their way to our tv (few, but not even half of the good ones), but thanks to netflix everything is possible. I don't know any other person from Finland who had watched this show, I bet there are few including me, but not so many (yet).

Then on season 4 when "Hal" presented himself for the first time I was stunned this actor and after that episode my keyboard was on fire when I googled everything about Damien.

I admire him because I have watch over million series/movies (well not really of course but you get the picture, I watch lot of movies ja tv-shows) and no one else, I mean no one, have never took place in my heart except Damien. (Imagine there was talented actors before him in that show, still Damien stand out like shining new star). It must be his interesting look, and later I noticed his ability to throw himself in roles out of his own personality so well (some actors "repeats" them self no matter what role they are presenting) and he is great story teller.

I also love theatre and my good friend is actor and I have acted as well when I was teen. So obviously I was more interested Damien cause he have done lot of theatre as well. What I have learned from acting, is that it is not just saying words and wearing a costume. It is stepping in to another persons shoes and facing their problems and life as it is and trying to live it. Damien succeeded in this. All these things are great fingerprints in his acting career and I'm looking forward to see his work in the future.

I have introduced Damien for all my friends cause he deserve to be noticed here too!

This why I also make fan-art. I have many self made fan art about other shows/actors etc. But now I'm making fan-art about Damien and that have been my absolutely favorite project. Cause when people ask me "Who's that on your shirt?" I can always start conversation about Damien. 

I hope you can help me with this, see more here http://www.damienmolonyforum.com/t58312708/damo-fan-art-by-jozie/

One of my friend reaction was priceless when she saw my shirt "What kind of propaganda is that?" (I was wearing my "Show no mercy"-shirt) "Oh, it's just this thing when vampires take over the world and kill us humans. This is their leader, no their poster boy actually. Hal is his name, he is very handsome vampire. I'm wearing this, hoping they will make me one them instead drinking my blood" She looked me for long while with stunned face and said "Say, did someone put any special pills on your coffee this morning?"

Hope you didn't fell asleep when you read this, sorry for typos if there was any and I'm looking forward to get to know you all! :)

Jozie, I am so excited you've joined us! welcome coolbounce

I've had the same (as we all have) reactions/conclusions about Damien as you have.  So many actors, many of them worldwide known celebrities, just play a version of themselves no matter what the role.  There ARE many wonderful actors out there, of course, but none has captured my heart/interest/obsession like our Damien.  molonyeffect

As you say, clothes and script do not make a great actor  - it's the ability to transform into a character so wholly that we are transported that makes a great actor.  He can deliver such a profound, nuanced performance just with his expressions alone, and in his most recent role, we see he doesn't even need a script to reel us in!  I think Damien himself said it so beautifully: "Acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances.” He does this so convincingly, so compellingly.  

 

Many wonderful, artistic fans in this fandom.  Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Thank you for your reply whimsyfox!

I totally agree with you. It is big shame that two countries and sea between seperate Damien from Finland so much that he doesn't find his way very well here. But that's why there are us fans, creating art and keeping our voices up for him so eventually people will hear about him :)

His work really moved me and inspired me ways I didn't know was possible. It is strange thing that someone, totally unknown to you, can move you so much. (Well I guess I have soft spot for great actors I didn't know until now, cause I watch so much tv and movies). Some of you have had privilege to see him and compliment him about his work. I can only be "long distance fan" who can raise her voice here and hope he will eventually find his way to our tv, so other people here will see how great work he has done. And that's exactly what I'm going to do :)

Perhaps a letter for our tv-people or article for magazine would help. Or fan art. I will do my best! But first, I wan't my badass Jack Weston-mug for work. That will be great conversation starter. And I will totally be the coolest person in the room with that mug ;)

Hi, Jozie! Welcome. And now, without further ado:

*stands up and introduces self* "Hi, I'm wabbit, and I'm a Halcoholic." ;)

Also, this? "Say, did someone put any special pills on your coffee this morning?"

Why, yes. When I'm lucky, fandom supplies me with squee on a daily basis.
