Family: Mother is a housewife, father is a shoemaker. He has a brother and a sister. İsmail Ege Şaşmaz, whose brother is also an actor like himself. “We have a very good relationship with my brother. We share rather than direct, we tell each other what we have learned. He covers his deficiency and my deficiency. Everything is going very well for both of us. We strive, we try not to stand still, we dream, we walk along this road together. My other brother is very young yet. If he was a girl, I would name my brother if he was a boy, I put it. I was strange when I first held him, you feel like a father, a responsibility is placed on your shoulders. It’s a soul, a piece of you. Now it feels like you are working for him, you will grow, teach, show. Of course, it also makes us grow. ”
Childhood years: Actually, he had an interest in music at an early age and wanted to be a singer. He even learned about it. “I’m not professional but I also like to sing. I like every style, but I like softer music with piano and violin background. When I met theater in high school, I decided I wanted to be an actor. And I started taking steps in this direction. At first, of course, I hesitated because I had witnessed my brother’s difficulties. However, this was a lesson rather than a negative impact on me.
Education life: In an interview, he stated that he won the conservatory but could not attend, but he studied acting. “Private schools and conservatories are expensive schools unless you get a 100 percent scholarship. Especially if you came to Istanbul alone. My budget was not enough. ”.
How did he decide to become an actor? While he was studying high school in Manisa, he started theater with the encouragement of his teacher. Then he moved to the city theater. “They wanted me to stay and be permanent staff, but I took a risk and came to Istanbul. Life also offered me luck. When I took the stage, the whole future that I had in my mind changed. That’s why I decided to be an actor. I realized that there is everything in acting. It is a free space, you can be whatever you want, whatever you choose. ”
First step into acting: He started his television adventure with the character “Feyzullah Altıparmak”, played in the “Söz” (The Word) series.
With which project did it shine? He drew attention with the character of “Emre Acar” in the TV series “Hekimoğlu”.
Personality traits: Natural, sympathetic and straight. “I’m not a closed box. I am as much as I am. I am open and in favor of sincerity. I can understand someone who is insincere, I do not have energy and do not deal with him. ”
Personal development: He wants to go to Los Angeles for training as soon as possible.
Mindset: He thinks acting is instructive. “I started this road with theater. For me, theater is the art of telling people humanly. It is an art where you can find answers about who you are, where you came from and what you can do. I can never forget the day I took the first stage. It was like I was living again. There is nothing more beautiful than presenting all the skills you have in this world, as well as to many people at the same time. That’s why it’s acting! It’s like an endless road, a school where learning never ends. Actually, I believe in luck a lot. I think there is a reason people meet each other because everyone teaches each other something. ”
Source of happiness: He thinks he is a lucky person who takes advantage of his luck and is happy about it. “Life has always opened good doors for me. I met beautiful people, and they compared me to more beautiful people. Thanks to them, I was able to learn something and move forward. Thank God I work with very experienced actors like Timuçin Esen and Okan Yalabık. All of them are valuable actors and actresses. I try to find out what I can observe and learn from them. We have a very decent set environment, very friendly people and sincere actors that you can consult with whatever you are curious about. I think I am very lucky for this. The consultations we do before and after the stage adds a lot to me. ”
First motion picture: Yağız Alp Akaydın / Kötü Çocuk
The person he admires: He admires Haluk Bilginer. “I would like to have a photo of me playing on a stage with Haluk Bilginer.”
The look at love: “I used to think that the things I experienced were love. I just got to know love with my last relationship. Love is a feeling that is difficult to explain and changes according to the person. Actually I am jealous, but this situation started to change after I came to Istanbul. My head is open. Let’s say I’m jealous in your dose. Correct communication is very important in the relationship, if something the other person does not like, they should not do it, or vice versa. Everything is mutual in the relationship. Everyone will close each other’s gaps and teach each other something. Because the more they add to each other, the more they exist. At least I’m trying to live and learn like this. It takes time to get to know each other, you need to reveal all your gaps so that you can stay clean. It is necessary not to be afraid to talk, not to run away, and to speak out.
View of life: He thinks that a person who does not live in poverty will not know the value of existence. “The more you get things, the more you enjoy your gain. People have a problem with making a lot of money. My problem is to do the job I love successfully. I could never understand my own peers. The new generation does not know how to dream. Even if he dreams, he does not take a step. People who do not take a step cannot get anywhere in life. With fame, you start to see the true face of people. People start to value you after you become famous. So I don’t mind this new interest. What the old Aytaç is, is Aytaç now. ”
His attitude to business life: Although there are benefits of good looks in the acting industry, handsomeness is in the background for him. “Trying to be handsome and being like that seems insincere to me anyway. I learned many things in professional professionalism in the “Rookie” character that I portrayed in the “The Word” series. The biggest of them are discipline, perseverance and continuing unabated in its negative and positive aspects regardless of what I do. Not giving up was indispensable. One of the most difficult parts of our job is, of course, irregular working hours. But what your work brings to you is making up for these things.
Career plan: He believes that his dreams and goals shape the path he takes. “No matter how much you want, how hard you work and you can be confident on this path, you will pass the obstacles on your way and continue on your way. And one must have a goal, concentrate on that goal, devote himself to that goal and walk to it. He should not give up at the slightest obstacle. The more it falls, the stronger one should get. Most importantly, he must be happy. Unhappiness brings reluctance, and unwillingness hinders success. I’m in a very good job now. Yes, everything is going on wonderfully. But for this to continue like this, I want to study and train more and put it on myself. This is not the only acting training, but I have a desire to get training in music or a few martial arts. Cinema is quite different for me. A world where you feel and find yourself more. Cinema has a taste that lives and makes me feel alive. I have a dream to portray a superhero on the big screen. ”
Dream of the Future: He doesn’t want to die without signing on to this world. “I want to add something to people with the work I do or the words I say. My only consolation before I came this way was my goals. I closed my eyes and walked to my target, struggling for something. In the short term, my ideal is to plan my tomorrow well and to prepare intensely for my tomorrow. Of course, my primary goal is health, happiness, peace, then plenty of work. I love to work. I hope the right things come out and this beautiful road continues. I also have a few projects in mind. I want to write and direct my own movie. I hope I can realize this as soon as possible. First, I would like to portray my childhood dream of Superman, and I would love to play the character of Baby in the movie Baby Driver. I hope it happens one day.
Concerns: “I think the biggest problem in the world; He speaks with a mouth. Lovelessness, insecurity and ego are also big problems. ”
Hobbies: He is very good at horse riding. He’s playing guitar. “Of course these are just a few, there is a lot more to learn. According to the project, I always look forward to using what I know. ”
Relationship with nature: If he painted the picture of happiness, he would have a quiet and peaceful chalet and loved ones.
How does he keep his shape? He has been doing sports regularly for many years. “I actually try to do all sports, especially bodybuilding and running. I would like to participate in all activities during my high school years. But I do sports not to develop my muscles, but for my own health, to feel good. What kind of routine you have depends on your body and metabolism. I love my body as it is. I pay attention to what I eat, but occasionally I flee. ”
What does he do at home? A domestic person is the only place he is a regular at home. “I can rest at home with the people I love. When I’m alone, I love to play quiet music and listen to it. In my spare time, I spend a day mostly watching movies, TV series and doing sports. Of course I also like to spend time in the kitchen. ”
Which movie was he affected by? Most influenced movies in recent times; ‘Inglourious Bastards’, ‘Vizontele’, ‘Organize İşler’, and all Superman movies.
