In the pantheon of Turkish drama stars, Bergüzar Korel and Halit Ergenç are akin to royalty.
The couple first worked opposite each other in 1001 Nights and married soon after the series ended its run in 2009. Ergenç went on to play Ottoman Sultan Süleyman in the megahit Magnificent Century, and Korel spent three years in ATV’s successful Karadayi. In the new Kanal D series Wounded Love Korel and Ergenç are back on screen together.
Korel and Ergenç tell TV Drama about why they initially resisted being co-stars and how the story in Wounded Love, about Cevdet and Azize, a couple torn apart by war, changed their minds.
