Among fans of Turkish TV series, and there are a lot of them, the controversy surrounding the Russian adaptation of the popular TV series “Knock on my door” does not subside. As soon as it became known that the project would be filmed with us again, the audience immediately began to wonder who and what roles would play. Sensing this interest, TNT and Okko, who took over the adaptation, began to give the viewer a slice of various characters.
The least interesting were first – female supporting characters (well, who follows them in Turkish TV shows?): Alexandra Tulinova, Yulia Serina and Ekaterina Shumakova will play the girlfriends of the main character Masha (in the original – Eda)
After the authors of the project removed the mask from another minor character – the native aunt of the main character. She will be played by Anna Nevskaya (“The Siberian Barber”, “Dyldy”).
“Now it is difficult to say unequivocally what my character will become, because we are only at the beginning of the journey,” the artist intrigues. – Together with the creative team and the director, we searched for an image and a character. And how it will turn out – to judge the viewer. It is clear that for the beloved niece of her, my heroine will do everything possible and impossible to make her happy.
Then it became known that even the singer Vlad Sokolovsky joined the series. He was entrusted with the image of Oleg, a friend of the protagonist Sergei (Serkan, in the original), although the blue-eyed blond auditioned for several roles at once. Including the main one.
“I auditioned for two roles: the main character and his best friend Oleg,” Vlad honestly admitted. – Inwardly, I myself felt that I liked the character of Oleg more. This hero responded to me immediately. I get it, because sarcasm and humor in general are very inherent in me. And in the series this is just the area of responsibility of my hero. I like characters that dilute the general vibe, and Oleg is exactly that.
Then the Internet was flooded with false stories that the main role was given to the son of the head of Gazprom-Media, which includes TNT, Leo Kandelaki. A Georgian who really looks like a Turk got into the project, but he’s not playing the Russian analogue of Serkan. And, most likely, the actor of the Leningrad City Hall Theater Nikita Volkov.
It was with him that paparazzi pictures appeared on the network, which show that Nikita is participating in one of the scenes, apparently, from the Russian TV series “Knock on my door” together with a young actress Liana Griba (“Monastery”, “Crystal”). Most likely, this couple will play our version of the architect Serkan Bolat and the florist Eda Yildiz.
Liana really resembles a Turkish woman with cut eyes and the outlines of an oriental appearance.
But Nikita, who became famous after the Internet series “Difficult Teenagers”, can hardly even remotely resemble the red-haired Kerem Bursin, who glorified the image of Serkan Bolat all over the world: tattoos, stand-up performances are dedicated to him and printed on t-shirts.
However, the creators of the Russian adaptation of “Knock on My Door”, it seems, are not going to achieve absolute visual similarity. For which they can only be respected.
