Early risers might have seen Russell and Yilmaz Erdogan, the Turkish star who plays Major Hasan in The Water Diviner, on Channels Seven’s Sunrise show this morning. They spoke about their experiences shooting in the extreme heat in South Australia, and the significance of Gallipoli-Canakkale to Australians and Turks. It was Yilmaz’ first ever interview in English and he charmed them. For those us who are not so early risers there is this link.
