"Nativity" featured in TIME magazine

In the June 26, 2006 edition of TIME Magazine, a small synopsis of "Nativity" is featured:

WHEN MARY MET JOSEPH--THE ROAD TRIP
In her movie Thirteen, director Catherine Hardwicke took a less-than-romantic look at the antics of adolescent girls. Now she's taking on another teen with a big secret in The Nativity Story. The film, which could also be called The Passion of the Christ: The Prequel, follows young Mary's life in Nazareth and her journey to Bethlehem with Joseph (OSCAR ISAAC). Taking the part of Mary--the key role, as any Christmas-pageant organizer can attest--is Keisha Castle-Hughes, 16, the New Zealander who swam to an Oscar nomination in 2002's Whale Rider. She has been "fearless, dazzling, an almost ageless spirit," says Hardwicke. Castle-Hughes gamely learned to milk goats, which, to the dismay of little kids everywhere, are played by real animals.

Hi "Rose"...thanks for stopping by!

About your question--do you mean Siddig El Fadil?

That's how I originally "knew" him, so getting used to Alexander Siddig, or Sid, as he is called, has taken some time. Apparently (from what I understand), his mother wanted to name him Alexander, but his father wouldn't allow it, so when he changed his name for stage purposes since "el Fadil" was never pronounced correctly, he honored his mother's wish.
