Turkish TV dramas are still all the rage in the Arab world.

Arab audiences have much love for Turkish actors, and it isn't a one-way street! Looks like Turkey loves us back, because one of our homebred actresses is making her way to Turkish TV screens in the very near future.

Lebanese actress May Hariri is starring in a Turkish drama alongside actor Saruhan Hünel, aka his famous character Asmar in the ME.


May has already acquainted herself with Saruhan over a friendly dinner (photos below), and received a warm welcome from Turkish media, as well.



Filming begins early next month, and while no details have been given about the production, we know that May will be playing the role of a mute, which absolutely makes sense since she can't speak the Turkish language!

Meanwhile, rumor has it that Saruhan might be starring in May's next music video for a whopping $50K USD, if he agrees to the offer.
