We are progressing step by step towards the end of the first season of the Alparslan Great Seljuk series, which is broadcast on TRT1 screen on Monday evenings. The series, whose 22 episodes have been broadcast so far, is expected to make the season finale at the end of May… The story that started as the Awakening Great Seljuk, told the period of Sultan Melikşah in the first season. However, in the renewed second period of the series, we watch the story of Sultan Alparslan.
The end of the season is approaching for the new version of the series starring Barış Arduç and Fahriye Evcen… There are millions of viewers who follow the Alparslan Great Seljuk series, which is planned for 3 seasons, and it will not surprise anyone that the series is at the top in the next season. One of the important characters in the series, which stands out with its successful story and strong acting performances, is Süleyman. The character played by Korel Cezayirli draws great attention.
This season, Korel Cezayirli received the horse named Bilginer, with whom Buğra Gülsoy appeared on the stage together. Bilginer is a special horse and also made an important contribution to the story of the series.
Korel Cezayirli, who answered the questions from the fans with his co-star Rabia Soytürk on Youtube, said that it is difficult to act in such series.
Answering the question of how it feels to be in historical TV series, the actor said: “As an actor, it is not an easy thing to play. But you have a very limited space when portraying lived, historical characters. All around you have to play inside the tight frame. It is not an easy thing to play within that framework without faltering.”
Underlining that there is not much information about the character of Süleyman reflected from history, Korel Cezayirli reminded that he still had to stay within a certain framework.
Explaining that the actors should work well in order to revive such historical personalities, the actress said, “Swords, horses, battles, fights, shouts… I am discharged, I like it very much. On the other hand, it is a very difficult job,” he said.
Underlining that the fact that all the characters took part in the series for 6 days in all weather and ground conditions forced the cast, Korel Cezayirli said that they were in a slow shooting process.
