The world-famous actor Engin Akyürek will meet his fans again with the TV series Kaçış (Escape), which will be broadcast on Disney Plus platform very soon.
The famous actor is loved not only in Turkey, but also in the world and is appreciated for his acting. Every step he takes is on the agenda of social media, but little is known about him.
Engin Akyürek, who gave an interview to Halkan Gence from Hürriyet Newspaper, told about his unknowns. Hakan Gence, “You don’t give many interviews, you are not in the magazine. It’s like you’re living in an iron cage. On the other hand, you are very popular, every step you take is on the agenda on social media. What is the secret of achieving this?’ He replied:
Engin Akyürek: “I don’t know if he has a secret. Actually, I am always in life. I am aware that the magazine is a part of my profession and I think that I am there as much as necessary. Those who know me, those who work with me know; I am someone who lives a normal life. I have a life in life, on the street.”
So, what is the famous actor like outside of work? Engin Akyürek said, “I don’t have a lot of routines. Since we are in a busy and crowded environment during our working periods, I like the energy of being alone when I am not on the set. I enjoy spending time with myself, I find it valuable. One of the things I love in my life is diving, I try to do it whenever I can. I like to spend time with my close friends and chat.”
Engin Akyürek, who has been keeping a distance from social media for years, explained the reason for opening an Instagram account last year with the following words; “Actually, it’s a five-year affair. We always thought whether we should open it or not. In normal life, I don’t take pictures of myself. Look at my phone, I have very few pictures of myself. E, I did not feel the desire to share my own photos.
But after five years, I said, “Let’s open it now”. Because it is a suitable medium for announcing and expressing something at first hand. That’s why I entered social media with a professional decision.”
Engin Akyürek, who portrayed men in love many times on the screen, confessed that he could not solve love and expressed his feelings about love as follows; “Is there a solution? If you have a solution, let me know. Love is a quest. Finding it, trying to feel it, wondering who it will be, it’s an incredible and very powerful feeling that connects us to life.
I think that when you ignore love, something very powerful about life starts to fade. When I am in love, the image of everything comes to life. Colors, sounds, smells… It is as if the soul and the body unite when in love. When love ends, that feeling disappears over time. There is no love in my life right now.”
