Engin Altan Duzyatan, the main character in the Turkish TV series Resurrection Ertugrul (Dirilis Ertugul), stated that his role of Ertugrul Gazi changed his life. He stated that “It is very important to play Ertugrul Gazi who is the hero of our ancestry. Of course, this role has changed something in my life. I am the man who always tries to act carefully, but I am trying to live my private life more carefully since I took the role of Ertugrul Gazi.”
“The Love Towards Our Job Increases Our Work Enthusiasm”
“It makes us too happy to see how much people love our job and it also increases our work enthusiasm. We have seen this in our episode ratings but to see people’s energy directly with our eyes is much better. We have been trying to deserve this love. We work five days in a week and I hope that this love will increasingly continue to grow.
“There Is A Job Offer From Abroad But I Do Not Have Time”
“I have received some job offers from abroad but it is very difficult to do it due to differences concerning work order between Turkey and abroad. In Turkey, we can shoot films only during summer time. However, in abroad, films also require working during winter time. I do not have any time during winter time due to my tv series. Because of this reason, I could not take part in foreign project. I hope that I will do in the future. ”
I Would Prefer Seeing Turkish Projects’ Success in Abroad”
“I want to see Turkish actors and actresses in Hollywood projects but I would prefer seeing Turkish projects in Hollywood. I want to see the success of our own projects in Hollywood.”
“At this age, I have received a very good role. I received Ertugrul Gazi role when I was 35 years old and I have been playing in this tv series for 2 years. I don’t want to plan what will happen after Resurrection Ertugrul tv series. I usually want to look at what is happening now. I am trying to enjoy this time.”
Am watching this series for the 3rd time. This brand of the Islam religion is so beautiful and I hope that this shows the world what a beautiful religion this can be. Having been raised in a Christian country, I knew nothing about Muslums. Engin Altan Duzyatan was perfect for the main character. Am sure he caused men and women to love the character’s faith, morality, and ideals of justice.
Which we lack in today’s world. Sadly!
This series was a wonderful experience in learning the history of Turkey and the Ottoman Empire. Since we recently went to Istanbul, it made me curious about Turkey. Seeing the City Istanbul (Constantinople) and the palace which was conquered by Mehmet who is the great great grandson of Ertrugl Gzai was very interesting. It made the whole experience surreal.
I have also watched Kurulus Osman. Cannot wait to see Season 2. I am from Punjab, India. There are so many similarities in the language of Punjabi and Turkish.
Thanks to Bozdag for making this series.
I believe the Turkish entertainment industry can make big changes in Hollywood. Honestly many Americans don’t watch Hollywood due to their political stand. Many despise our creator. I thank you for enlightening the world about Islam.
The movie Resurrection became our talk of the day on our Facebook posts. We laugh we cried along with you and you have educated us. God bless you all in all your endeavors.
All series available on Netflix. Just love the show. Hooked!
