Oscar-nominee British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor speaks at a press conference for "Half of a Yellow Sun" in Lagos on April 11, 2014For Oscar-nominated British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, starring in a film about Nigeria's civil war was "incredibly personal", as the conflict both affected close relatives and determined the country where he was born. His own grandfather had lived through the nightmare played out in "Half of a Yellow Sun", which premiers in Nigeria on Friday, and spent long hours years later recounting the painful memories to Ejiofor. The movie -- now showing in Britain and Australia and opening soon in the US and other countries -- is based on the best-selling novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about the 1967-1970 Biafra War, which began after the eastern region tried to secede from newly independent Nigeria. "The Biafra War was a seminal part of my upbringing and my family history," said Ejiofor, 36, the first black actor from Britain nominated for a Best Actor Oscar.

The young royals have been warmly received during their tour of Australia and New Zealand, in which they have travelled from beach to remote outback and shown off their nine-month-old son George. On their final day the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were among tens of thousands at events marking ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand, a tribute to soldiers past and present. The day marks the April 25, 1915 landing of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) at Gallipoli in modern-day Turkey and has become a defining symbol of courage and comradeship for both countries.
