On June 4, 2016, she married Ertan Saban, an actor like her, and the couple have a daughter named Biricik. “My brother and sisters left home when I was little. I lived with my parents for six years in a small town in Nevşehir Hacıbektaş. I had a lonely childhood. I loved being an earth person. It was a time when I plucked the fruit from the tree and ate it. I understood that the texture and warmth of the small places relaxed and reassured me. My family has never been harsh on me. We were always very harmonious. By talking, we understood each other very well. They were very respectful of my desire to act. They understood and supported me. Right now, when I say ‘Mommy I’m getting tired’ or ‘Dad I’m too tired’, I’m faced with sweet reproaches like ‘Well you wanted it!’
Childhood years: She was a hyperactive child, so she was always bruised as a child. “I still am. I crash all over me for moving fast. I always wander in bruises. I am also clumsy. Very mobile people are also clumsy. My older brothers were married because I was the youngest child. My mother and father were also working. So I had a lonely childhood. I would invent games by myself. Acting has been in my mind since I was a kid. I went back to Ankara for university and studied at the Department of Theater in Ankara Faculty of Language, History and Geography. My manager Jülide Kar finds the actors from the theater stage. She wanted to meet me in Ankara in 2006 and we continued on the road. ”
Educational life: She graduated from Ankara University Faculty of Language, History and Geography, Department of Theater.
First step into acting: In 2006, she took the first step in his acting career with the character ‘Melisa’ in the movie ‘Kabuslar Evi: Bir Kış Masalı’.
Which project did she shine with? She drew attention with the character “Halide”, which she portrayed in the “Lady’s Farm” TV series in 2009.
Personality traits: Obsessive, self-controlled, determined, hardworking, distant.
Mindset: She prefers to stay away from magazine in her private life. She loves privacy. “We love and try to protect privacy but we are not hiding. Of course we go out, we shop, we don’t just encounter the magazine. They don’t happen where we are. The locations are different, I guess. ”
First motion picture: Handan İpekçi / Çınar Ağacı
The look at love: “Love makes me who I am. It affects my chemistry. It even causes chemical disorders from time to time. I think love is the main link of life. ”
Her view of life: Until today, she always behaved the way her truth is. She cannot live with the thought “What will others say about me?” “I know how to enjoy every moment. I have no high expectations, no ambitions. That’s why I’m not disappointed. My pocket items increase from time to time and decrease from time to time. These also leave something for me. It gives experience. ”
Her view of business life: She loves her job and every branch of art. She is happy where she is for her own name. “This is the best fit for me, I know it. While choosing the scenario, I first look at whether I like it or not, I do not have a special method. I would also like to make a reverse corner in the future and act in a quality comedy. ”
What has being a mother changed in her life? She describes motherhood as “an indescribable, unique feeling”. “After joining our lives, of course, many things have changed both emotionally and technically. I became free, I express this at every opportunity. I do not think of anything unnecessary and spend more time on anything than it is worth. I think of my daughter’s sister, but I don’t know what time shows. We love large families. I would very much like Bircik to have a brother. ”
Career plan: She never sits down and thinks ‘what would I like to play’. There are no rules such as choosing a role, playing in the sex scene, or kissing. “Frankly, I don’t think much about such issues. I do not grow it up by thinking. Because they have never been my focus. I think everything should be done properly and on time. If it is a very demanding situation, if it has a message, it can of course be within certain frameworks. But that’s never my focus. I choose the role according to the script. I see if I like the role or not. I see if it excites me. I make choices in this way. I do not differentiate between roles or styles in cinema, as in television and theater. I can be in any movie that is well written, has a problem and conveys it to the audience sincerely. ”
Concerns: In life, she has troubles with injustice, people deteriorating for the sake of competition, and even intentionally trying to harm each other. “Sanctions and coercion drive me crazy. Othering, suppressing, in short, any kind of behavior that prevents peace and happiness was my concern. I also do not find the pressure and censorship applied in the industry right. I also don’t understand why things in life are prohibited. We eat, live in love, are born and die. If you are in real life in love and not holding hands or kissing on the screen, if you are unable to drink in a scene that shows you are drunk, the connection with reality is broken. If we remove them, there are still people who do not live. ”
Who does she admire? ‘Stephan Hawking fan. “I admire those who can do a job that I could never have done, but which I am very interested in. Astronomers, astrophysicists, mathematicians. ”
The criterion for attractiveness in men: It is enough for her to be human and to be honest. “What matters to me is the man’s perspective, stance and how he reacts to what and where.”
