An 11-year-old boy from Greece partners with Russell Crowe in his new film, part of which was shot in Turkey. He is Dylan Georgiadis, a pupil in the 5th grade from Melbourne.

In the film, Dylan plays a boy from Turkey and naturally had to learn Turkish to some extent. For about a month and a half, he left the lessons at the school in McKinnon suburb of Melbourne to go to Sydney, where they were filming for four weeks and then to Istanbul for two weeks.

Little Dylan says Russell Crowe behaved very well with him. "He helped me a lot and tried to entertain me. He did everything with a lot of humour", says the boy. Anyway, Dylan now says he is happy to return to school and his classmates.

Let us recall that Andrew Anastasios, a Greek immigrant to Australia, in collaboration with Andrew Knight, wrote the script for the film entitled "The Water Diviner" and Russell Crowe himself is its director.

The action of the film takes place in 1919 and the main character is a father from Australia, who goes to Turkey to find his two sons who have been missing since the Battle of Gallipoli in 1915.

The film includes scenes of the landing of Greeks in Asia Minor in 1919 and of an attack that Greeks seem to have carried out against a train carrying Turkish soldiers, in which Connor, the character of Russell Crowe, was as well.
