Questions From the Interview with Gulsum Ali


Question: “Chasing your dreams” lies at the core of the plot of An Anatolian Tale (Gonul Dagi). So, how long have you been chasing your goals?


Answer: I learnt to chase my ambitions at an early age and never gave up. In ten years, I ran 569 kilometres between Ruse (where I was born) and Istanbul. I used to sit around waiting for everything to get back on track. Despite the fact that we were Turkish, I spoke with a Bulgarian accent because I was born and raised there. It took me a long time to overcome my accent, but I never gave up and worked diligently. I sat and sobbed on occasion, but I always brushed away my tears and continued jogging. So, everytime someone asks me for life advice, I always tell the same thing: “No matter what happens, don’t give up on your aspirations; stand up and keep running even if you get stuck.”


Question: During the series, when emotions are at their most raw, it gets increasingly impossible to notice them around us. When we see what is meant to happen, we are even moved. What are your thoughts on this?
Answer: Unfortunately, genuine life has vanished behind computer keyboards in our day. People began to write as if they were the person they wished to be, rather than as they are. They had lost touch with reality. That is why when we come across something genuine, we become emotional. We used to get together to share our joys and sorrows, but now we just post on social media.


Question: When others make compliments on you, they use terms like “pure, pure beauty.” What does beauty mean to you?
Answer: Everyone’s definition of beauty is different. Personally, there are times when I don’t like myself or notice my defects when I look in the mirror. I am one of those who believes that a person’s true beauty lies within. External beauty fades with time, but inner beauty lasts forever. It is wrinkle-free and does not age. In the meanwhile, I’d want to express my gratitude to everyone who described me as “innocent, pure, and lovely.”
