Since his first donation, Damien has also continued to actively raises awareness of the importance of blood donation and has motivated to his Twitter followers to ‘save a life give blood’ by ‘ReTweet’ing post-donation photos sent to him.

He appeared on the front cover of Blood Donor Magazine in 2013, where he revealed in an exclusive interview that his own inspiration for beginning to give blood was a personal one.

Blood Donor Magazine 2013 cover

When I was filming the first series of Being Human someone very close to me died. David had cancer and was losing a lot of blood. To keep him alive while he was receiving treatment, he needed two pints of blood a day. I was genuinely amazed that people who had never met David were keeping him alive with their donated blood.”

I know it can seem scary at first and I don’t like needles either, but it really couldn’t be easier.”

I am very grateful to my followers on Twitter who have given blood or have started giving blood since I started tweeting about it. I made the obvious connection with playing a vampire in Being Human, a blood addict giving blood. So now I have a deal with my followers: I will re-tweet everyone that has donated blood and tweets me a photo.”
