Şafak Pekdemir, who was born in Istanbul in 1988, has been in serials since 2010. Having gained experience in productions such as Türk Malı, Şüphe, Firar, the actress attracted attention with the Nisan character in the TV series Leyla and Mecnun.
Şafak Pekdemir, who we also watched in the TV series Seksenler (Eighties) and Asla Vazgeçmem, achieved her big break thanks to the Yasak Elma (Forbidden Apple), where she appeared with the character of Zehra between 2018 and 2021. The actress, whom we watched in the five-episode TV series Yalancılar ve Mumları (Liars and Candles) in 2021, returned to the sets with Barış Akarsu Hello after a long hiatus.
While the Amasra phase of the film’s shooting is completed, the team will now shoot in Istanbul for about 2 weeks and the film will meet with the audience in November. Şafak Pekdemir also welcomes the digital projects that have increased in recent years. After Netflix, Disney Plus also made a strong entry into the series and cinema industry, with actors and producers experiencing a great deal of intensity.
Şafak Pekdemir said, “I think this is a very good situation, because as the diversity increases in terms of scriptwriters, actors and producers, we are more pleased when we see that we can do other things. There’s something for next season. But my heart is always with television,” she said.
Şafak Pekdemir, who stated that there are some jobs coming to her for the new season, also announced that she would prefer to take part in television series rather than digital projects.
