We have been hearing the name of the famous actor Tansel Öngel since 2004. The actor, who always aims to appear in front of the audience with a different character with his TV series projects and movies, has attracted great attention with his latest series of Masumlar Apartmanı (Innocent Apartments).
The character of Naci was actually a character that was not easy to see on television. Therefore, as a reflection of Tansel Öngel’s acting success, Masumlar Apartment has become stronger. Naci was a naive person, an introvert, and he had a side that everyone knew from somewhere.
Tansel Öngel mentioned this prominent situation of Naci in her interview with Milliyet newspaper and spoke as follows: “Yes, Naci is more naive, his eyes are more introverted. We all have a side of ourselves that we know from somewhere, but it was a great advantage for us that he is not a character we see a lot on television.”
Tansel Öngel, who thinks that the audience’s desire to see macho men on the screen affects the producers and screenwriters, emphasizes that the audience should also make self-criticism if they want to see different characters. The reason why the actor is in the doctor’s series called Yeni Istanbul (New İstanbul), which will be shot for Show TV in the new season, is that a completely different character attracts him.
You will watch Tansel Öngel in the role of Cardiovascular Surgeon Baran in the project whose preliminary preparations continue and the cast is about to be formed. Returning to the screen with a completely different character after Naif Naci in the Masumlar Apartmanı is exactly the career choice that the actor intended.
The New Istanbul TV series will be the local version of the TV series called New Amsterdam, and it is expected that famous names will appear in this series.
Tansel Öngel, who is known to choose a project based on how much the audience will believe in the character he plays, must have seen an important opportunity for his role in the new series, because he wanted to take part in such a role.
Expressing in his interview that we, as a nation, forget that there is a character like Naci, Tansel Öngel, with his new role, will reveal the importance of being a doctor, which can be considered as another strong message.
