Engin Akyürek tests positive for coronavirus
Coronavirus infection is present on Turkish TV sets almost constantly, making the work of film crews much more difficult. The cast of the Disney Plus series Escape / Kaçış, as well as the lead actor Engin Akyürek, did not escape infection.
The bad news came from the set of the series Escape / Kaçış, which is produced by O3 Medya for the Disney Plus digital platform. Filming of the show, which was supposed to be completed in March, is delayed. First, a snowstorm interfered with the work of the film crew, then the all-powerful and omnipresent coronavirus intervened.
As it became known, cases of coronavirus on the set significantly complicate the work of the group. Engin Akyürek, who plays the role of a war correspondent named Mehmet in the series, is currently in quarantine with a diagnosis of coronavirus. The actor is doing well. Shooting of the series continues while filming scenes that do not require the presence of the main character.
After the news that Engin contracted the coronavirus, fans in 51 countries expressed their support for the Turkish actor. The hashtag with the name of the star hit the tops in a dozen countries.
