Gönül Dağı series, broadcast on TRT1 screens, was very popular as a story that touched the naive lives of people living in the steppe of Anatolia. The series, which has been on the screen for two seasons, is shot in the Sivrihisar district of Eskişehir. While the series was filmed in the harsh winter conditions of the region, the actors sometimes have a hard time. However, scenes with high emotional weight sometimes tire the actors.
The season finale of the series came to the screen in the past weeks, and there was a development that both surprised and upset the audience. While Dilek, the beloved character of the series, lost her life, Gülsüm Ali İlhan’s departure from the series came to the fore.
Gülsüm Ali İlhan came to the agenda with allegations that she left the series voluntarily. When the actress who returned to Istanbul was asked about this subject at an event, she stated that the story of the character she played was over.
Although Dilek is gone from the series, the other name in the lead role, Berk Atan, will be in the new season as well. Cihat Süvarioğlu and Semih Ertürk, who gave life to the three popular characters of the series, are among the names that will continue. Three successful actors shared the scenes they had the most difficulty during the shooting of the series in their interviews shared on TRT’s youtube account.
After Gülsüm Ali İlhan, who shared the lead role, left the series, Berk Atan did not hide that he had a hard time in that last scene. The actor tells that he recreated those moments with great emotionality. Berk Atan relates those moments as follows: “It was the scene in which I received the news of Dilek’s death in the last episode. It was actually a difficult scene. After all, losing his pregnant wife is truly devastating for every human being.”
Cihat Süvarioğlu, on the other hand, states that he did not have much difficulty in the scenes he took part in throughout the series, but that he had some setbacks by drawing attention to the harsh winter conditions in Eskişehir during the winter months.
Süvarioğlu stated that it was very cold in the scene of the breakup with Hazal, that she could not prepare, and that she had difficulty in playing, “I was not prepared emotionally anyway. I felt like I couldn’t get anything out even though I was prepared. It was the scene I had the most difficulty with. “I couldn’t play because of the cold,” she said.
Semih Ertürk, on the other hand, admitted that the family assembly scene in the series took too long and he had difficulty in this scene.
