The latest episode of the Turkish TV series The Magnificent Century, dedicated to Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and his beloved Hürrem, was released on 11 June 2014. From that moment on, the lives of our favourite actors, watched by the whole world, changed dramatically. Some of them became stars far beyond Turkey, others disappeared from TV screens, and still others got involved with the wrong company.
OBOZREVATEL would like to tell you how the fate of the popular actors in the historical drama scripted by Meral Okay and Yilmaz Shahin turned out. We will also show how they have changed since the beginning of filming, which started in 2010 (to see the photos, scroll to the end of the page).
Meryem Uzerli was offered the role of the Slavic captive Hürrem, who became the first wife of Sultan Suleiman when she was 29 years old. In 2014, after the filming of the series ended, the actress gave birth to her daughter Lara, whose father she divorced when she was pregnant. The man turned out to be a scammer - he borrowed $215,000 from his fiancée, and when Weatherly broke off the engagement, the businessman fled the country. In 2021, Meryem became a mother for the second time.
In real life, the loving Sultan Suleiman is an ideal family man. He has been married only twice: his first marriage did not last even a year, and his second is still ongoing. On 7 August 2009, Khalit married actress Berguzar Corel, who is 12 years younger than him. On 9 February 2010, the couple had a son, Ali, on 8 March 2020, the second heir, Khan, and on 3 November 2021, daughter, Layla. Ergenç's last TV project was in 2019.
Actress Vahida Perchin was 47 years old at the time of filming. She became widely known for her roles as Zehra in the TV series I Called Her Feriha and Once Upon a Time in Chukurov. In 2013, the celebrity divorced actor Altan Gerdyum after 22 years of marriage. In 2011, Vahide defeated breast cancer.
The actor gained worldwide fame for the TV series "The Magnificent Century" and "East-West". As for his personal life, the actor and his wife have known each other since childhood. In 2011, the couple got married, and a year later, a son, Mehmet Efe, was born to the family. In 2018, the Magnificent Century star was sentenced to 16 years and 8 months in prison for resisting police, hostage-taking and illegal possession of firearms. The celebrity is now 41 years old.
To become part of the Turkish series, Ileri had to train hard and gain 8 kilograms. The man had an affair with actress Ezgi Eyüboglu, who, by the way, also played in The Magnificent Century. However, their love ended after the project closed. Gürbay is now 35 years old. He rarely appears on TV.
Recently, OBOZREVATEL showed how the stars of the Brazilian TV series Clone have changed over 22 years. The main characters of the melodrama, Giovanna Antonelli and Murilo Benicio, were a couple not only on the set but also in real life. The ex-spouses have a son together.
