About Damian Thompson

What did you want to be when you grew up?

For the longest time I just wanted to be in an office with a huge window behind me. I went from wanting to be an accountant to an advertising executive. Then I gravitated to wanting to be a fine artist, and finally landed on being an actor after I developed a stutter and was introduce to theater as a way of helping to managing it.

If you could travel anywhere in the world it would be…

Bora Bora – I love the ocean, I love the sun, and the tropics bring me peace.

Favorite ice cream flavor?

Vanilla - There is beauty in the simplicity, and a good vanilla ice cream is filled with flavor.
