The 7th episode of Fox TV’s new season’s period series, Kanunsuz Topraklar, was aired this week. The impossible love of Gülfem and Davut in the TV series starring Esra Bilgiç and Uğur Güneş became a story that the audience followed with admiration.
Uğur Güneş and Esra Bilgiç were compared to each other with their screen harmony. The successful performances of the two actors and the work put forward after months of preparation for Kanunsuz Topraklar, together with the names of the other cast members in the series, are known to everyone.
The story of Kanunsuz Topraklar, which has accomplished a difficult task, takes place in Zonguldak. However, the set of the series was set on a plateau in Istanbul.
Despite the fact that Gülfem and Davut love each other like crazy, all their dreams are turned upside down because of the cruel mining boss Ali Gelik.
Gülfem has no choice but to marry Ali Gelik in order to save her father Malik from this cruel man and to protect Davut and everyone she loves from Ali. However, Gülfem, who could not digest this situation no matter what she did, finally decided to take her own life.
Gülfem, who wore the wedding dress sent by Ali Gelik and went to the lake on her horse and left herself in the waters, was saved by her sisters who realized the situation when she was about to drown.
Here’s the Instagram post of Esra Bilgiç, who plays Gülfem, with the photos taken during those scenes, revealing that there were difficult times behind the camera.
In the scene, which was watched for a few minutes on the screen and searing everyone’s heart, at the same time, Davut burned the cottage they lived together after Gülfem had to leave, saying “Be free”, while Gülfem left herself to the cool waters of the lake after this separation.
On that stage, the song “Keklik Gibi” began to play with Melek Mosso’s voice. These sad scenes deeply affected the on-screen audience. It was not that easy to shoot those scenes that lasted a few minutes!
Before and after such brief scenes on the screen, it is a difficult and tiring process for both the actors and everyone working in the team. When the actors have to enter cold waters, the team is ready to ensure the comfort of the actress and take precautions for situations that may pose a danger.
Esra Bilgiç made some posts that made the audience wonder about this special scene before this lake scene was broadcast on the screen.
It did not go unnoticed that the actress also noted “4 o’clock in the morning” on one of the frames, for which she also thanked the set photographer. In the scenes that start at sunset and last until the morning, Esra Bilgiç’s special bond with her horse in the series is also evident from the word “my son” in her post.
