Characters of Yalı Çapkını (The Kingfisher)
Afra Saraçoğlu (acted as Seyran)
Kazim and Esme’s little daughter. Like her older sister, she is one of the young girls of Antep who are pointed at. She is at least as beautiful and educated as her older sister. Well, Seyran dreams of reading and standing on her own two feet. She is a merciful, loving girl who can become irritable when appropriate. With her stubbornness and perseverance, she never stops fighting to take control of her own life.
Mert Ramazan Demir (acted as Ferit)
Ferit is the grandson of Halis Ağa, the younger son of Orhan and Gülgün. Ferit is diabetic. Due to both his illness and the fact that he is the youngest son in the house, he was pampered from his childhood and most of his wishes were said yes. Since he studied abroad at the university, he could not internalize the rules of the family very much. Therefore, Ferit is in conflict with the rules. He is handsome, frivolous, crazy, funny, and flirtatious, but he has never been in love yet.
Çetin Tekindor (acted as Halis Ağa)
The head of the Korhan family. Ferit’s grandfather. While he was one of the best faithful masters of the country, he retreated due to the diseases brought by old age. Thus, he handed over the business to his son Orhan. However, Halis Ağa still makes all the important decisions. He is an authoritarian, prescriptive, tough-tempered man. While he challenges his own body by trying to embroider jewels in his room, he also reveals his inner conflicts with the diaries he keeps.
Şerif Sezer (acted as Hattuç)
Hattuç is Kazım’s aunt. Esme, Suna, and Seyran also call her aunt. She is an authoritative, tough-tempered woman. While she was one of Antep’s daughters who were pointed out at the time, her father did not marry her to anyone. Her father was subjected to both psychological and physical violence until his death and internalized this violence. That’s why she supports Kazım’s harsh attitude towards his daughters.
Gülçin Şantırcıoğlu (acted as İfakat)
The great widowed bride of the Korhan family. She came to the mansion as a bride at a very young age, upon the approval of Halis Ağa. She lost both her husband and the baby in her womb as a result of a traffic accident at the beginning of her twenties. On top of that, her mother-in-law’s heart could not stand these events and the family suffered painful losses one after another.
Halis Ağa healed the wounds of İfakat, which he regarded as his son’s trust, and positioned her as the lady of the mansion. Accomplice considers the interests of the family more important than anything and everyone. There is no limit to what they can do so that the Korhan surname is not tarnished.
Emre Altuğ (acted as Orhan)
Son of Halis Ağa. Father of Ferit and Fuat. Orhan is a successful businessman, but Halis Ağa’s hand skills did not pass him. Therefore, no matter how successful he was at his job, he could not please his father. Although he gives more freedom to his sons than is given to him, his only request from them is not to lower their heads against Halis Ağa. He married Gülgün at the request of his father, without ever knowing them. The feeling he felt towards his wife was not love but love and acceptance. He is a compassionate, understanding, and spiritually lonely man.
