The project, which was broadcast on Netflix and won the love of millions in Turkey under the name Zeytin Ağacı (Olive Tree), reached a wide audience abroad under the name Another Self. One of the leading roles in the series was Boncuk Yılmaz.
Although she is a well-known person in Turkey for the TV series she has appeared in, the Zeytin Ağacı TV series was a good project in the name of Boncuk Yılmaz, to be recognized abroad as well.
Among the unforgettable roles of Boncuk Yılmaz, who has been on the sets since 2005 and we can watch in a small number of projects, the characters of Narin in the Sıla series and Sevgi in the Çukur (The Pit) series come to the fore.
Boncuk Yılmaz, who has recently appeared in front of the audience in different roles one after the other, strives to portray very different roles.
The actress, who also took part in the main cast of the TV series Ateş Kuşları (Firebirds), which attracted great attention in the first two episodes, received great acclaim with the character of Nazmiye, which she portrayed.
Stating that the only resemblance of the character to herself is that she does not lose her joy in the face of events, Boncuk Yılmaz said that the story deeply affected her.
The Ateş Kuşları series tells the story of street children holding on to life and becoming a family. Of course, they go through many tragic events and their bonding with each other in this process is reflected on the screen as an important social message.
Returning to the screen with such an effective drama, whose ratings are also very good, was a good step for Boncuk Yılmaz as well. The actress said, “One of the reasons I took part in this drama is definitely the story. As soon as I read the story, I wanted to be involved. Our screenwriters are very strong pens,” hse said.
The character of Nazmiye is actually a very foreign person to the actress. It will not be easy for her to identify herself with this character. However, Boncuk Yılmaz’s portrayal of such a person for the first time created a new experience for her career.
The actress said, “‘Nazmiye’ is a character that I have never played before. Nazmiye’s keenest feeling is ambition. The only thing similar to Nazmiye is not to lose my joy in the face of events.”
