Daniel Radcliffe talks comedy, nerves in return to London stage

“Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe has plenty of stage experience – even famously appearing nude in “Equus” – but the British actor still gets nervous before each performance. “[I] get a bit twitchy and nervous,” Radcliffe said. “You need nerves, you need that. If you don’t feel that then why are you here? That’s exciting.

Berlin festival showcases films on artists, refugees and shooting

A legendary jazz guitarist on the run from the Nazis, a family trapped in a Syrian apartment as bombs rain down, and a shooting at a Madrid bar – those are some of the roughly 400 stories that will hit screens at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

Family’s return to rebuild Aleppo street points to Syria’s future

The Batash family are working with their bare hands to clear debris from Aleppo’s al-Mouassassi Street, rebuilding their wrecked neighbourhood after years of fighting that came to an end in December. Heyam Batash, 56, has sores on her fingers from scrubbing clothes in freezing water, her sons Ayad and Youssef forage firewood from wrecked houses and her grandchildren fetch bread from a charity-run bakery nearby. “We hope life can get back to what it was before,” said Heyam, wearing a purple dress and black headscarf.
