For Selahattin Paşalı, the TV series Ömer started to turn into one of the most important leaps in his career. The actor has been on the screen with different roles so far, and he had a good promotion opportunity abroad with his successful performance in the Netflix series Pera Palas’ta Gece Yarısı (Midnight at the Pera Palace). However, for the young actor, the Omer series, in which he is currently in the leading role, has a greater meaning.
Omar, adapted from the Israeli TV series Shitsel, has a very different meaning, especially when considering the power of the story and the emotional intensity that the project leaves the audience. The story of a young man who falls in love with an older woman who also has a child will attract attention all over the world.
Here, the character of Ömer started to mean a very important turning point in the career rise of Selahattin Paşalı.
Selahattin Paşalı, who also carries out a very good partnership process with Gökçe Bahadır, plays the leading role in a scenario that is not far from real life, although he will receive reactions from some circles in an environment where social prejudices are prominent.
The love story of a young man who grew up in a conservative family with a middle-aged woman who has a child and separated from her husband in the TV series Ömer, which was screened on Star TV, is not an easy situation to accept.
With a scenario that challenges social judgments in Turkey, the importance of the TV series Ömer is obvious.
It will not be surprising that the series attracts attention abroad as it is an adaptation of Shitsel and also reveals the value judgments of the Muslim community.
Selahattin Paşalı is in the most important period of his career and his success in identifying with the character himself showed in the first two episodes.
As the TV series Ömer continues to be broadcast, we think that the name Selahattin Paşalı will be talked about more and this project will have a very positive effect on the actor’s recognition abroad.
