Of course, there were various explosions and riots in such a protected life. They coped with my classic teenage girl triple. But it was good in general. Since I was a child, I have had a more conflicted love relationship with my mother. Possible conflicts between mother and daughter. I went to America at the age of 7 because of my father’s job, I studied there in the second grade. I think that year has a very big place in my life. The perception of America and the absorption of American culture at an early age created something else for me and I always wanted to go back. I was very determined to do this when I reached my 18th. Thanks to my parents, my parents were also financially able to fulfill this request. They opened a completely different world before me. ”

Childhood years: She received ballet training for 10 years, starting from the age of 4. “Being on the stage is a passion for me that came with dance. There was always dance in my life for 10-12 years. I was about 14 years old when I realized I couldn’t be a prima ballerina. After that, I cooled off from the dance and my interest shifted to the theater thanks to a high school teacher. After that, my focus was always on acting. This time I went to America alone, at the age of 18. Of course, my primary reason was to read. Then I wanted to stay there. America has a great meaning and importance in my life. My experience there taught me to stand on my own feet. ”

Education life: She started primary school in Şişli Terakki. Then, when her father went to Syracuse University as a teacher, se studied in USA for a year. After returning to Istanbul, she studied at Işık High School and then graduated from Üsküdar American High School. She won the Department of English Language and Literature at Istanbul University. She studied here for a year, but left school and went to the USA. She studied Sociology and Theater for 4 years at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster in the United States of America, and then she received a master’s degree in acting at Actors Studio Drama School in New York. She was a waitress on the one hand. She also participated in Shakespeare Workshop at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts). In 2003, she won the lifetime membership of Actors Studio founded by Elia Kazan, Cheryl Crawford and Robert Lewis. During the years in New York, she was compared to the American actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

The turning point of her life: She started acting when bhe entered the musical “Man of La Mancha” in high school and did not want to quit again. While in New York in 2006, her sister began making fun adventure in Turkey with director Ömer Faruk Sorak her photographs. “An offer came from the TV series” Blade Runner “. I confirmed too. During the first stage, only series I intended to stay in Turkey. But that season, after the series was over, our producer Erol Avcı offered me a new character that will enter the third season of “1001 Nights”. I confirmed too. The transition process here has been a bit turbulent. Because since the moment I started working here, I have also been trying to cope with the feelings of returning to my country. After all, I lived in America for 14 years. But suddenly I started wanting to live here as well. Being close to my family was good for me. Finally, I decided to stay for good. ”

The first step into acting: She started her television adventure with the character ‘Serra’ in the ‘Knife’s Edge’ series.

With which project did she shine? ‘Behzat Ç. He drew attention with the character of “Prosecutor Esra” in the TV series “An Ankara Police”.

Personality traits: She always takes care to prioritize purity and sincerity and tries to keep the spirit of the child alive. “I think I’m perceived as cold and distant from the outside. For this reason, too many people try not to approach me. However, when approached, I am extremely sincere and sincere. I am a friendly and social person. I am a classic Cancer. I am home. I am family oriented. I am both introverted and extroverted: so my shell is thick and hard, but my inside is soft. I like this feature of mine the most. .

Social: She doesn’t like going out at night. She finds Istanbul’s nightlife very degenerate. “In my spare time, I try to devote more time to my real friends and family. I live in a neighborhood and I know the shopkeepers, the people who live in my neighborhood. On the whole, I love riding, playing sports, reading books and cooking. ”

Mindset: She thinks that lack of freedom of thought is one of the biggest obstacles to art. “When we look not only at the USA but also around the world, we can see that the freedom of expression of the people in our country is limited. This situation of course also spreads to art. The free spirit in the nature of art continues to live in chains. This is also against the nature of art. In such a case, the talent grown in these lands will either count in place, or throw the cap abroad, or try to do the best he can in his own country with special means.

What kind of person is she on set? Although she is uncomfortable with being with others instantly in daily life, she thinks that such barriers should be removed and a team should be quickly on set. “It’s a team job, not a star job, after all. It seems very absurd for me to think of yourself as something, especially in the television industry; “You exist today, you are absent tomorrow”. I work hard while preparing for my character. I’ll go down to the finest details of the role. There is character for me from the moment I enter the stage. I see everything through his eyes. For example, because of the “Gülfem” character in the “War of Roses”, I read many psychology books and refreshed all my psychology knowledge. My continuity amount. I have a notebook and take notes for him. I love my job and I work hard. ”

The source of happiness: She feels lucky in terms of the actors she has worked with in the productions she has played so far. “I’ve played with great actors in everything I’ve played. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a TV series, a theater or a movie. There are many people I would like to play together again. Here are a few: Haluk Bilginer, Ayça Bingöl, Fikret Kuşkan, Erdal Beşikçioğlu, Okan Yalabık, Ali Atay and many more. ”

Debut feature film: Christopher Burke / Shooting Johnson Roebling

Definition of love: “A lot of sacrifice can be made for love, but there is a place where love ends and psychological health begins. When people fall in love, they often forget themselves. That’s why they themselves are unhealthy. I love being healthy. ”

View of life: She never said ‘I wish’ in her life because she thinks very thoroughly before making a decision. “I make a difficult decision, but since I look at it from every angle and take a step, I don’t look at the pros and cons of what will happen later. This is the case in my life and my work. If something needs to change in my life, I weigh it for a long time, I look at it from every angle. But when I come to the decision stage, I am blind. I live in America 14 years from the decision to come to Turkey bought just 5 days. Living is beautiful despite everything. There are plenty of moments when we make life difficult for ourselves. Our hesitations in most experiences and our brain’s chorus of a thousand and one voice block what we can do. I think there is a question I usually ask for such situations: “What have I got to lose?” The answer is usually “nothing”. Then I get more courageous against life. ”

Her attitude to business life: Although she loves her job very much, she thinks that acting is emotionally exhausting. “Acting is an emotionally tiring job where you eat a lot of whips. It is heavy for many people and leaves this profession. Because when you hit the average, there may be longer times when you feel unsuccessful even if you don’t. There are moments that lead to depression. Because you want to express something and cannot find a job. I think it should contribute me personally when accepting a role. I want him to carry me somewhere somehow. It can be something very simple or very difficult, or something physical or cultural. For example, playing the prosecutor introduced me to Ankara. I lived fondly in Ankara. It was something that should have been in the spirit of the business. It’s not good to be spoiled with fame, I’ll beat myself beautifully if necessary! ”

Career plan: There is no particular character she dreams of. Only when you see it on paper your heart has to jump. “I can only be unhappy, especially in long-term work, which I accept for logical and practical reasons. That’s why my heart must have said yes too. As Canan, I go through various stages of my life as a woman. I also have very old sides, 5-year-old children. I prefer to live these in different ways at different stages. So I want to have a variety of roles that I call. Rather than always playing the same role, it is effective for me to act by searching for “What can I find specific to this role”. I am moving on a commercially effective path so I do not waste myself.

I would love to do comedy too. But like most TV jobs, it shouldn’t be a blind eye comedy. I think I would be good at a dramatic comedy. ”

Future Dream: She wants to take part in international projects. “I have talent and a foreign language. I don’t want to be limited to Turkish only. For example, it was very important for me to act in Russell Crowe’s movie. I have been able to do what I wanted to do until this time in my life and I will continue to do so. Living is a good thing. And if I can do what I want, I don’t want more than that. I can’t imagine myself doing another job anyway. I also very much want the Cohen Brothers to lead me. I also have a desire to open a restaurant in the future. I love cooking, eating and also chatting with people about food. I’m gourmet. ”

Who does she admire? Some of the names he likes her acting; Zerrin Tekindor, Ayça Bingöl, Erdal Beşikçioğlu, Haluk Bilginer, Fikret Kuşkan, Ebru Özkan, Tomris İncer, Okan Yalabık. “Also, I would love to work again with Erdal Beşikçioğlu and Fikret Kuşkan.”

What does she do at home? She’s good with the kitchen, she cooks well. “I roll the dough, I like to do things that force me. I like gourmet recipes more. I do something starting from that recipe and adding my own color. I have a lot of books and magazines. ”

How does she keep his shape? She does not diet, she pays attention to a healthy diet. “I eat healthy food and try to turn this into something I will do for life. I focused on lowering my fat, not losing weight. I was exercising every day. While on tour, there was not a gym in every hotel we went to, so I used my yoga mat and practiced yoga.

Does she follow fashion? She likes to be comfortable and generally prefers clothes that make her feel comfortable rather than fashion. She has no brand obsession, she dresses from the market. “I like to dress up every now and then, but I usually dress plainly and look as I am. Even though I love to dress up and go somewhere like any woman, that life is not in the foreground for me. ”
