The interview was with a very prominent doctor of a major political family in Sudan. Her family is very successful and relatively wealthy- I don't remember the name exactly but it started with an S(and is probably the same as Siddig's longer arab name?) and has had a very important place in the politics of the country. She was discussing the situation in Sudan, how she fought in a war back in the 90s... and then she mentioned that Siddig is her cousin and that everyone is very proud of him!! that was very cool to hear, I had no idea that he had such a background. I always find it interesting when relatively prominent actors have ties to places & cultures other than, like, California. But apparently he has family ties to Sudan, and to people who are intimately involved with the situation of the country and its government. Just thought it was interesting.
