Posted in website with tags on 15 March, 2014 by ambarussa

Finally, a new promo picture. Fears of Hollywoodysation have been unfounded.

Now all we need is some (confirmed) news…

(I haven’t given up hope for a Silmarillion trilogy tetralogy octology yet. I’d start my first petition ever – Damian for Maedhros.)

If… Cloning could cure us – Gallery Online

Posted in if... cloning could cure us, tv, website with tags , , , , on 14 March, 2014 by ambarussa

Back in 2004, the BBC aired the “If…” series, which dealt with a couple of “what if” scenarios like “If… Drugs were legal” or “If… We stopped giving aid to Africa”. There was even one episode called “If… TV goes down the tube”.  If!

In one of his early TV appearances, Damian O’Hare played Andrew Holland in the “If… Cloning could cure us” episode. After falling off a cliff, Andrew can’t walk anymore. A doctor tries to heal him by using stem cells from Andrew’s cloned cells. However, the clones are 19 days old and the legal limit is 14, so everybody ends up in court because 19 day old cell clumps are more important than an already living person.

Anyway, ten years later, I finally managed to get a hold of this episode, and so the O’Hare bingo card is now complete: there are now screencaps of all of Damian’s TV and movie roles available on the website!

Click the picture to get to the gallery. Please keep in mind that this is the copy of a copy of a copy of a video recorded ten years ago. The quality is not stellar, but I hope you’ll enjoy it, anyway.

2013 in review

Here are WordPress’s yearly statistics. Their helper monkeys aren’t working very accurately, though, as neither encrypted searches through Google nor visits by people who have cookies disabled are counted. That’s a couple of thousand visitors, but it will give you an idea. These are the stats for the blog only, btw., not for the website. Unofficial Damian O’Hare had ~50’000 visitors in 2013.

Btw. we start into 2014 with a new feature – NO MORE ADS! Yes, I’m sure you’ll miss them as much as I do…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Merry Christmas!

The last door of the advent calendar has opened, and I hope you’ll have fun with what’s behind it!

The calendar will be online until 26th December, so if there’s something you’d like to keep: download now, because come midnight, all will be gone…

I wish everybody and their loved ones a Merry Christmas, Blessed Yule and Happy Whatevereyoucelebrateornot and a New Year which will be made of  lovely memories only come 2015. I’ll be back on 6th January.

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” – Bob Hope

Edit: We’re back online!

DDOS attack on our provider, no access to mail, website is not available half of the time, the usual, bla bla bla.

I’d really love to know who we share the cluster with; we’re certainly not the main target…

Thanks for your patience. And as for the bloody scriptkiddies responsible…

Gallery: Damian O’Hare as Declan Toole in “Hell On Wheels”, Episode “Cholera”

Posted in hell on wheels, tv, website with tags , , , , on 15 September, 2013 by ambarussa

He’s still alive, he’s not a baddie and even if he didn’t get the girl, he got the baby. All things considered, we can’t complain. And Rose is such a cute wee little girl!

The gallery for episode 7 of “Hell on Wheels”, “Cholera”, is now online:

Eva sent off her baby without food (Rose was still being nursed, are we expected to assume she tucked into spam on the journey to NY?), clothes and any basic information. New York also had several cholera outbreaks. Declan Toole is a policeman, not Rockefeller. And then – Elam!? I’m all for drama, but that was a bit too much Coronation Street for me.

TV.com seem to share my view. And they upgraded Damian to “hunk” status.

This tweet sums up the general reaction quite neatly:

As we wave our hankies after Declan’s train out of Hell on Wheels, the question remains if we’ll see him (and wee Rose) again. And wouldn’t Elam go after the child he considers to be his?

Now that’s what I call a cliffhanger. And judging by the preview, “Searchers” will not be an overly pleasant episode for Mr Toole.
As characters played by Damian O’Hare end up dead in 40% of cases, we have good reason to be a wee bit worried about his fate…

The gallery for episode 4 of Hell on Wheels, “The Game”, is now online:

This week’s “quote of the day” is coming yet again from TV.com; read their full review here.

It’s a credit to the handsome Damian O’Hare that his ominous scene as Declan Toole with the raw Eva edged on swoon-worthy romance, and provided just enough “What if?”-style sympathy to support her debating whether or not going with him would be the right thing to do. She’s a great character whose own earned standards dictate how she feels, and it’s completely believable that with the pressures of a community she hopes to join, she’d recognize Mr. Toole’s care as something to be valued enough to feel guilt over.

And what has the internet to say about Damian O’Hare / Declan Toole? (courtesy Twitter and the AMC boards)

To the following, however, I can only say “no no no, the hell the no!”

New Biography of Damian O’Hare, plus some Information on this Website

Posted in website with tags on 10 June, 2013 by ambarussa

Damian’s biography got a little lengthy. I’ve done a bit of rewriting, and the new version is now online:

AND WHO IS DAMIAN O’HARE?

The German translation is still in the works, sorry about that.

I’ve also added a new gallery, where you can find pictures of Damian’s “public appearances” (all two of them!)

RED CARPET

HELLS ON WHEELS

I have no information regarding the character Damian plays yet. I’ll keep you posted as soon as the show updates their cast list.

 

So, and now for the website. This is in reply to a couple of mails/suggestions I’ve received in the last months and haven’t replied to yet. My apologies for the delay, but you raised some questions I had to think through first.

Please understand that Unofficial Damian O’Hare is not a “professional” website because this is not my job. It’s something fun I do in my spare time. The sole purpose of the website is to give you information on Damian O’Hare the actor. There will be no Facebook (I loathe it) and no personal information, and that’s how it will stay. You can always set up your own sites and tumblrs and whatnot, or maybe one day Damian O’Hare will have his own official website. But this “Geocities ca. 1998” website will stay as it is.

Thanks for respecting my stance. Don’t make me add dancing hampsters.
