Angela Sarafyan, who plays the role of Maral in The Promise, a new movie about Armenian Genocide, has revealed an unknown fact about this film. It turns out that she and Oscar Isaac, who plays Mikayel in the movie, were technically gotten married in Spain.
The actress posted some footage and photos on her Instagram account and wrote as follows: “The priest on the set of @thepromisefilm was a real Armenian priest from Armenia that happened to live in Spain. Etchmiadzin, one of the oldest cities in Armenia, has three sister churches and this is where he was ordained. He actually married us on set, with the true Armenian prayer they would do at any traditional Armenian wedding. Those prayers were true in 1915 and remain the same to this day. In the end, he told us, ‘I need to divorce you, because you are technically married in the eyes of God.’”
The premier of the Promise has been held in Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia, and in the major cities of several other countries.
