Uğur Aslan, who we watched as the commissioner Eren in the Yargı series, has also become a popular name in recent years, as a musician. Uğur Aslan, who has been in the series industry for a long time with his screenwriter wife Sema Ergenekon, also told about the big change he experienced for the first time.
Speaking to Kanal D’s magazine program, Uğur Aslan impresses the audience with his musical show called Afara, as well as giving a very successful performance in the series Judgment, for which his wife is currently writing the script.
The production, which changed the lives of Sema Ergenekon and Uğur Aslan duo, goes back to one of the most important projects in Turkish television history, named Gümüş. Sema Ergenekon, who wrote the screenplay of Gümüş, and thanks to this story, great steps were taken both for her and her husband, as well as in the history of Turkish TV series.
Gümüş, starring Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Songül Öden, was a series that lasted for 100 episodes. The adventure of broadcasting Turkish TV series abroad started with Gümüş. The series, which was very popular in Arab countries, pioneered the rapid spread of Turkish productions to the Middle East.
Sema Ergenekon and her husband Uğur Aslan also have a big share behind such an important project. Uğur Aslan, who participated in the test shots for the character of Orhan, thus started his first series. However, the actor was very overweight at that time and had to undergo a major change as soon as possible.
Uğur Aslan explained his TV career that started with Gümüş series and its effect on him with these words:
“My wife came to Istanbul and sold the Gümüş series. At that time, I went to the military and came back and entered Gümüş’s audition and it was my first job. Yes, I was very overweight at that time and I made radical decisions. I was a very sore throat man, I had to discipline myself. Later I turned into a man nicknamed Colonel. He does morning sports, pays attention to his diet… My wife also said that you need a hair transplant and I did that too.”
Gümüş series, which started on January 20, 2005 and made its finale on June 18, 2007, was filmed as 100 episodes. Screenwriter Sema Ergenekon took the biggest step of her career with this project. For Uğur Aslan, Gümüş was also unforgettable in that it was his first acting experience.
