“The story actually begins in a village, in a village beyond the border. We spent a very long time in that village. That village has a story. There is what happened in that village. It was a 4 month shooting process. Like Mehmet, actually I, as Engin, lived that journey a little bit. We also changed on that journey. When we returned to our own home with what we experienced there, the experiences there also added something to us. I started to look at life from a slightly different place than the old Engin. Along with the power of this story and the change of the story there, I also experienced that change with Mehmet.”
The famous actor Engin Akyürek not only became the hero of the story he wrote years ago with these words, but also gained great experience after this story was converted into a digital series.
With great self-confidence, the actor admitted that the story also changed him and that, as Engin, he looked at life differently after the series Escape.
