Damian on Irish (and maybe British?) Screens
THe Irish language Channel TG4 in Ireland will be showing Hatfields & McCoys this Friday, and I believe it will also go on the on-demand service of tg4.ie. I don't know if people outside of Ireland can use it, but it might be worth a try.

Damian's on Netflix!
*cough* Oooh, a bit dusty in here... *grabs a feather duster* Hello, there! Just stopping in to share a little news.

Ultimate Force ("The Killing of a One-Eyed Bookie") is now available for instant streaming on Netflix! Foyle's War ("Among the Few") is also available, both for instant streaming and on DVD through the mail.

This isn't a free service, though, unfortunately, as you have to be a paid member of Netflix to have access to either the instant or the DVD service. I should also point out that I'm writing this from America, so I'm not sure if this news will be of any use to anyone outside of the US. Sorry :(

Have a nice night/morning, everyone! :)

Happy Birthday to us! Party with us and help School Kids getting a decent Breakfast!
On 12 August 2012, it will be five years that we provide the world with information on Irish actor Damian O'Hare's work. Which just goes to show that ideas conceived at 3am after a pub crawl don't necessarily have to be bad (though we're glad we didn't go for calling the site "D'Oh!")

Running such a website is only fun if the fans to go with it don't take things seriously, and luckily, that's the case with ambarussa.net. Thanks a lot to all of you who contributed to the website, for mailing news, making screencaps and all the silly discussions.
(I still think "Dr. Burnett carrying kittens in a basket to safety from a burning house while single-handedly rescuing 30 girlscouts/nuns/vicars from a bus stuck in a ditch" would have made an awesome episode for "The Royal"!)

Thanks also to Damian O'Hare; we'd never made it to five years if he'd decided to drop acting and become a plumber. The people who "discovered" him in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies continued to follow his work all through the years, from The Royal to Taking the Flak to Hatfields & McCoys. If you manage to get and keep such a loyal fanbase, you know you're good at what you're doing.

So - party! We won't share the cake, but we want to share the food: to celebrate five years of ambarussa.net, we've set up a fundraising site over at justgiving.com for "Magic Breakfast", a charity which provides a decent breakfast for some of those 700,000 children who arrive at school too hungry to learn every day. Please help us to reach our target until August. All you have to do is click the button below, get more information and, if you feel like and can afford it, share a quid or two. Your donation will make the wee ones happy, it will make the charity happy and it will make us happy. And happy Webgnomes are a very good thing!

JustGiving - Sponsor me now!

Thanks so much for your generosity, and to the next five years!

Your friendly neighbourhood Webgnome xx

PS: As usual, the person responsible for this charity drive is the Webgnome; Damian O'Hare is not involved with this in any way, form or shape. Have complaints? Then mail us.

US Fans! Damian...OnDemand!
Yes, Damian O'Hare is now available OnDemand...just not in the way we wish he was. ;)

"The Broken" is now available on Comcast OnDemand's FearNet for free. I'm not sure how long it will be available as there was no 'available until' date on the listing, so, if you'd like to see it, I would watch it as soon as you're able. Comcast has a tendency to pull things from their OnDemand library without warning. UPDATE: Comcast.net now says that this title will be available until April 11th. It will also be shown on the FEAR channel on April 1st from 2-4pm (I'm assuming that's EST).

Also, "On Stranger Tides" has started making the rounds on various movie channels. I caught the end of it over breakfast yesterday morning...and I had to resist the urge to flip off my television when Ted's and Terry's names came up on the credits.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone. Take care. :)

New TV project confirmed!

And he'll play the brother of Kevin Costner. Hah!


As he's a dedicated Western fan, he'll probably have a lot of fun with that production.

"I didn't know Gillette was published!"
I was in Barnes & Noble a few weeks ago and, as I was browsing, I came across this little book that immediately reminded me of RNotC fic and Gillette (and our NavyBoys in general). I thought I would share, thinking everyone here might find it as amusing as I did, considering the subject matter is such a major part of our fandom. Can anyone else picture Andrew sitting with quill and paper trying to write this?

Theatre: Damian O'Hare in "Double Feature"
Damian is back on stage in "Double Feature" at the National Theatre (at the Paintframe, where usually the sets are built). There are two Double Features, each of them consisting of - surprise - two short plays by young authors. DF1 is "Edgar and Annabel / The Swan", DF2 "Nightwatchman / There Is A War". Damian performs in "Edgar and Annabel" and "There Is A War".

Most critics love Double Feature 1 and don't like Double Feature 2 much (for at times obscure reasons); but I'm very fond of absurdist theatre, so I'll probably enjoy "There Is A War". How I'll manage to stay awake during a play about cricket I don't know yet, though. No offense to possible cricket fans here, but -cricket. Cricket! :-P

Here are some production photographs (by Johan Persson). Why, yes, Damian's character dies again. Now what a surprise... 

"Edgar and Annabel"

"There Is A War"

Most dates for DF1 are already sold out (the place only holds 170 - 180 places, I was told), but there are still tickets available at the box office, and DF2 still has tickets for most dates. Tickets for each Double Feature are £20.

I Come Bearing Introductions and Fic: Too Lost In You

Hello fellow Damian/Gillette fanboys and girls. A fellow LJ user directed me here after I asked her about an image she used in one of her icons, and so here I am.

I particularly hated what the writers did to Norrington, the only good things about DMC being how sexy he looked messed up as well as in uniform, his snarkiness and that three-way duel at the end. I hate what PotC does to the Navy in general, as someone who hoped to join the Navy as an officer in future. I just hope my generation aren't stupid enough to take PotC as an example of behaviour.

I love Gillette, Groves and Norrington, in descending order, and I loved Damian in Titanic: Birth of a Legend. I was also interested in 'The Countess' so if you have any images of him in the play, I would be the happiest girl on Earth :D. I posted the below on FF.net as ToryTigress92, just in case anyone thought it might be stolen.

Fic: Too Lost In You

Rating: Mature

Pairing: Elizabeth/Gillette, Norribeth, a hint of Willabeth.
