In the grand historical series “Selahaddin Eyyubi” on TRT1 channel, the talented actress Tuvana Türkay delivers a brilliant performance. This ambitious show depicts the life and achievements of the great Muslim commander and ruler Selahaddin Eyyubi, whose figure is vividly embodied on screen by Uğur Güneş.

However, the role of Victoria, the Christian queen whose fate intertwined with the epochal events of that era, is no less memorable.

In an interview with the fashion magazine “Gardirop”, Tuvana Türkay shared her thoughts about this colorful historical figure. “Victoria was a real woman who lived in those times,” the actress noted. “Given the cruel customs and political intrigues reigning at the courts of that period, it’s difficult to assess the similarity of our characters. However, Victoria can certainly be characterized as a resolute and unyielding nature with a very expressive gaze. In this, we are alike – I, too, stubbornly defend my beliefs and do not back down.”

Thanks to Tuvana Türkay’s talented performance, her character is not just a decorative element of a costume drama, but a living, contradictory personality that prompts the viewer to empathize with her conflicts. This colorful image undoubtedly adds historical depth and multidimensionality to the depiction of those events unfolding in the series “Selahaddin Eyyubi”.
