NEVŞEHİR - Anadolu Agency
After spendng a few days in Istanbul and Edirne, Crowe has visited Cappadocia and the fairy chimneys. DHA photoAustralian Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe has arrived back in Turkey for a new trip preparatory to a film to be shot in the country, taking in the highlights of Cappadocia in Central Anatolia.
The actor arrived in at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport over the weekend before heading to Edirne and subsequently Cappadocia, where he has visited fairy chimneys in the province’s Ürgüp district. On July 27, one day before his visit to Edirne, he tweeted: “Sun’s coming up. 4 a.m. call to prayer woke me. This place is amazing. At least once in your life, you have to experience Istanbul.” During his recent trip to Edirne, Crowe conducted some research for a new movie that will focus on the life of a father who lost his sons at the Battle of Gallipoli. “Been all over Edirne. Interesting place, some great potential locations for filming. Met the Governor and the Mayor, big day,” he tweeted.
This is not the first time Crowe has come to Turkey, as he visited the northwestern province of Çanakkale on May 22 with U.S. producer Keith Rodger and Britain’s Dene Jesham. The famous actor, who was traveling on a luxury yacht named Latiko, had come to Çanakkale after visiting the Greek island of Mikonos. He and others visited Anzac Cove and the New Zealand monuments and graveyards in the Gallipoli National Park.
At the time, the famous actor tweeted about his visit, saying, “The Turkish coastline is so beautiful.” He also tweeted a picture with the caption: “The sun rising over the Gallipoli peninsula.” “In 1915 we would have been in earshot of the Turk guns for the last hour. Lest we forget,” he said in another tweet.
