Netflix has continued filming a series in Sevilla that was recently banned in Turkey because it included a gay character.
A production company has spent days in Sevilla filming scenes from ‘If only I had known’, starring Megan Montaner, a Netflix series that was banned in Turkey for including a gay character.
The filming of the series began at the end of July and until this week it was been possible to see the film crew deployed in the capital.
Scenes have been recorded scenes in Triana, in the Murillo Gardens, and in different streets across the city. In total, the film crew will spend almost a month in Sevilla where, previously, the Boomerang production company had searched for suitable locations.
This filming is especially important for Sevilla because of its commitment to LGTBI tourism and for its defence of gay rights.
The synopsis of If Only I Had Known revolves around a 30-year-old woman, starring actress Megan Montaner, who wants to explore new possibilities after her ten-year marriage came to an end.
After experiencing a supernatural event, she travels through time and takes the place of a younger woman, thus turning into a new version of herself- exploring other avenues of life. The script, written by the Turkish Ece Yörenç, has been adapted by Ay Yapim and Irma Correa.
The series is being described as a fiction fantasy, confirming Sevilla as a filming city that is committed to the industry. The reactivation of the sector in the Andalucian capital has come back in force, according to the latest figures.
There are already more than a hundred films waiting for municipal licenses, many only require interior sets and do not require authorisation or access to the public thoroughfare, these have already been processed by the Sevilla City Council.
Of these, there are 14 films, 13 documentaries, 8 short films and 15 TV programs, 21 commercials, and 5 series for TV platforms.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
