Duraid Lahham Prevented from Filming in the North for Second Time
Syrian actor Duraid Lahham was prevented again on Saturday from shooting movie scenes in the northern port city of Tripoli, the state-run National News Agency reported.
The NNA said that several youths rallied near the building and banned the technical team accompanying Lahham from carrying on its work.
The actor didn't bicker with the protesters and complied calmly to their requests, it added, without giving further details.
In February, Lahham visited Internal Security Forces chief Maj. Gen. Ashraf Rifi, a day after he was forced out of a Qalamoun town in northern Lebanon over his support for the Syrian regime of President Bashar Assad.
He was shooting a movie scene at a villa in the area when several men chanting anti-Assad slogans asked the actor to leave the town.
ISF immediately interfered and Lahham left.
Lahham, a comedian and a director, is well-known for his acts under the nickname Ghawar al-Toushe.
