You might recognise these guys from making everyone that watched our latest Christmas campaign collectively ‘awww'. Brendan and Damien, a real-life couple, sat down with us to talk travel, secret talents and real relationship goals.
Boys, welcome! And can we just say a big thank you for flying all the way back to be in the Bonds film. When you’re not off wandering about the world, what do you like to do?
D: Definitely getting out in nature. I also really like music and arts.
B: Hmm ponder the countries I'd like to visit, and spend time in nature. Our typical date would be camping by a waterfall or beach in the van by the campfire.
You were beyond cute on set so we know you're the real deal. How did you two meet?
D: We were working at the same festival, me as a performer, and Brendy as a massage therapist. He saw me perform, and I also booked in for a massage with him. It was really easy to enjoy each others company.
B: I was watching Damian perform on stage and his movement captivated me.. from then on we have been intertwined.
What?! Incredible. Any other secret talents we should know about?
D: Predominately, I'm a contemporary dancer. Brendy is an amazing massage therapist. He has healing hands. I do like to handstand, I’ve been teaching him and he’s been getting really good!
What did you think when Bonds came a’knocking (figuratively speaking)?
D: I had gotten quite sick in India, and Brendy was in Morocco. I honestly thought it came at the right time.
Was it fun to be cast together?
D: It was a funny environment to be in together. Definitely something to remember. Very different from the camp trips we do haha. Always good to spice things up.
B: Definitely a new world to explore together, we tend to explore many different worlds together.
#relationshipgoals! What would you say your real ones are?
D: Well, since a goal is something in the future, I would have to say my goal is to continue growing as individuals, and finding the most happiness possible.
B: To continue supporting each other in our own individual endeavours. so important to stay true to yourself so a relationship can flourish.
Are you spending Chrissy together this year? What does it look like?
D: Yes! I have a large family christmas which is always fun-filled. It mostly involves sharing food with the people you love.
If you could surprise each other with any Bonds prezzie - what would it be?
D: Maybe some leggings? it would have to be something earthy-coloured.
B: Maybe some new bamboo Bonds seamless underwear.
