Biyi Bandele: "And then We All Got Typhoid" Making Half of a Yellow Sun



When the shoot finally began, the drama didn't stop. "Myself and several members of my crew and cast got typhoid. Some even had malaria. Thandie Newton got typhoid too, but she was incredible. She was really suffering but didn't take a single day off work. It was like she was possessed by God knows what. The experience of shooting was tough, but every single day I woke up and wanted to be on set, because you just didn't know what was going to happen."

Chiwetel Ejiofor as "Odenigbo" with Onyeka Onwenu as "Mama".

See Photo gallery of over 40 images from "Half af a Yellow Sun".
