Damla's English is good, I remember from a movie she did where she played a Turkish woman with an American husband.  Ilayda presumably knows it well from doing international press for Mustang, she was semi-famous in American and French indie circles before Turkish TV.   So I'm not worried about those two.

Cem doesn't look a thing like those pictures buuut he's a good & charismatic actor, so I guess they're prioritizing that.

If I speak English, it sounds funny, because I can't get rid off the Teutonic accent

Lol I had to look up teutonic accent... assuming its similar to German?

Turks accents while speaking English is even funnier.

Lol I agree.... but its not like the Indian accent isn't funny. So they've made a lot of English/hindi original shows for Netflix and Amazon prime. But it is realistic because people do speak a lot of English in India. Also there is sort of this elitism about English in India.

Just not sure how they would work English in a script from the middle ages. Modern English wasn't even a formed language at that point.

I liked him a lot in the protector. With the right makeup .. I don' think it would matter much. Also his age seems more appropriate.

I have a hard time understanding their English

The best are Scandis and the Dutch when it comes to English.

Yes it is tough. I am probably more used to it because I am Indian by descent. But I think I'd equate it to something like a local dialect. Also they use a lot of Britishisms but in their own way so it gets confusing,

Ahh, okay. Yeah, that makes sense of course. Especially when they speak fast and I'm like So it's all about getting used to something.

Too bad my Bollywood phase is over, though sometimes I still listen to the osts of Devdas or Paheli.

Don't be too sure, there are many trash docus out there. But let us pretend they will be accurate lol.

So Tuba will play Mara Branković

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mara_Branković

played by Idil Firat in the KanalD version

She was actually the stepmother, but since she seemed to have actual influence and her being Christian makes the character more interesting.

Mehmets actual mother was called Hüma, a slave girl whos background are sadly unknown. Also she died only around 40.

Not sure how true.. but I hear they are aiming for release in September. Also that they are going to start filming in March... I guess that part makes sense because they have most of the cast finalized. 

Also Mara's real life history sounds very interesting: The real historical facts about Mara Branković, a daughter of Serbian despot Djuradj Branković: She was born 1416, betrothed to sultan 1431, and entered harem of Murat II 1435, as a third wife, in order to prevent Ottoman invasion on Serbia, and started to be a step-mother of young Mehmed Ii (later named Fatih (fatih in Turkish means conqueror). Mara than named Mara Hatun or Despina Hatun. Since she did not have her own children, Mara played a major role in his upbringing, but also in helping to come to power 1451, when she was 35 years old, and he was 19 years old. As the widow she rejected a marriage proposal by Constantine XI, Byzantine Emperor. After the conquest of Constantinople (now Istanbul) 1453, with approval of sutan Mehmed, she returned to Serbia, but later she lived again in various places in the Ottoman Empire and was the most honest advisor, confidential person and "diplomat" of Mehmed II. She helped the Christian monasteries. She died at age 71 year.
