Of course, being in different cities is a bit difficult, but we visit each other frequently and talk on the phone every day. I am a family that stands behind and supports me in every step I take and every decision I make. Their presence is the greatest chance for me. ”
Childhood years: She spent her childhood playing games in the streets. “We used to make houses and dresses for our babies. I guess that’s why I still can’t stop creating something. I guess we were lucky kids because technology is not in our lives that much. My story starts in Ankara. I was born, grew up and studied there. Ankara is one of the most important points that makes me me. That’s why I am a melancholy from time to time, like Ankara. I stayed in Ankara until I graduated from university. I went to France with the Erasmus program in my last year. I studied French during middle school and high school. After studying in Lille for six months, I returned to Ankara and decided to come to Istanbul. Once I left home, I said with the same courage, “I am going”, I came to Istanbul. ”
Educational life: She graduated from Ankara University Faculty of Language, History and Geography, Department of Sociology. The Academy received acting training at 35 and a half. She also went to Vahide Gördüm and Altan Gördüm’s acting school.
How did she decide to become an actress? While she studied on Communication sociology. Television and media started to gain her attention at that time. Upon this, she decided to come to Istanbul and learn something in this field and improve herself. Meanwhile, she studied both working and acting. “It was a busy and difficult time, but I’m glad I endured it all. Now I can say it was worth it. ”
The turning point in her life? The commercial she starred with Nejat İşler was the turning point of her life. “When I first went to the meetings, I expected a good job, but frankly I couldn’t think that it would attract so much attention and change many things. The audience, including myself, saw a completely different Hande with that ad. I have been involved in many projects until that day, but none have been so popular. So many people got to know me. Moreover, this advertisement changed the nature of the acting offers I received, but “Waiting for the Sun” became the opposite corner even for me. ”
First step into acting: She started her television adventure with the character “Zeynep Kayhan” in the “Heroes” (Kahramanlar) series.
With which project did she shine? She drew attention with the character of ‘Zeynep Yılmaz’ in ‘Waiting for the Sun’.
Personality traits: Impatient, well-intentioned, overly sensitive, thoughtful, idealistic.
Mindset: Although she experienced occasional disappointments, she never lost hope. Because she believes that even the things that do not go well open a new door for her and always carry her forward. “There’s nothing top down in my life. It is a great feeling to work hard and be rewarded. I am very happy to work hard. I guess I would have lost sleep if I could have this life easily. Now I am moving very deeply on the way I want. ”
What kind of person is she on set? Every morning she starts her day by drinking her coffee. Again, every morning, while making preparations in the trailer, she listens to the songs that will increase her energy. Apart from that, her books and sudoku are always with her when she’s always on the set.
First motion picture: Burak Aksak / Bana Masal Anlatma
The look at love: “One cannot do without love. Love is a feeling that fills people in every sense. When I fall in love, I have the energy to do anything. I want to live everything, without missing a moment. I want to create more, work more, live more. To share more, to spend more time with him. I think the whole perception of man opens with love, so he has more enthusiasm for everything he can do. ”
View of life: From time to time, everyone feels lost like they are. Her awareness increased with her 30s. “The important thing is to be aware that whatever we are living is something we have to live with and learn from it. That’s why even when I feel lost, there is something waiting for me at the end of it, I can question “Why am I living this?” I started to question too many things in my 30s. Everything I experience, sometimes upset, has something that it tries to teach me, there is a reason; However, if I can understand these, I will be a happier individual and I can approach the ideal. Noticing and learning is a painful process, but there is a great feeling of freedom and peace afterwards. Like everyone else, I have weaknesses, but at a certain age you become stronger as you realize and learn that there is a reason for what you experience. ”
Her view of business life: She sees acting as a way of life. “This is my job, of course there are difficult aspects, but I do what I love. Its danger may be related to individual preferences, but this applies to all professions. Watching yourself on the screen is always an uncomfortable feeling because you are never satisfied, there is always the thought that I can do better. I usually try to watch it so I want to know where I am doing and see how I can do better. I wish everyone who wants to be a good player and take part in good jobs, and who devoted himself to this profession, will get the money they deserve. ”
Career Plan: She really wants to play a character from the past. “I would like to live in a time when technology has not taken over that much and every emotion is more real. Until now, my problem has been to do the best whatever I am doing. Therefore, I would like to evaluate the situation I am in in the future about what I want to do. Professionally, cinema is a very valuable field for an actor. I wish to have participated in cinema projects where good stories are told and continue to do so. ”
Future Dream: She has many dreams professionally, she sees herself at the beginning of the road, and she has the desire and energy to do much more. “In general, my dream in life is to leave a peaceful and happy life behind. A big happy family, a healthy and peaceful life. One day I will make a world tour where I can visit all the countries I have not seen. Actually, I want to live in a place I don’t know for a while. The idea of making a new life on another side of the world sounds very attractive.
Concerns: Finds the censorship practices on the screen alarming. “21. century to be talking about censorship in Turkey is still very annoying. Unfortunately, we still talk about censorship and fears, while we can talk about art and productivity. I don’t believe we can go a step further as long as we cannot express ourselves freely with any branch of art. ”
What is she most angry with? It does not tolerate being deceived. This applies to all those who love and value in life. “I highly value the people I take into my life. Maybe more than enough. And sometimes I can be very naive about it. I can tear down all my walls without question and put them in my most precious corner. Any situation that can exploit this can hurt me very much. ”
Most disliked feature? She is very impatient. “I want everything to be resolved immediately and well. That’s why I’m fighting hundreds of thoughts and solutions at the same time in my head. ”
How is it with social media? She’s good with social media. She especially likes using Instagram because she is involved in photography. Photography special curiosity. “I use my Twitter account with more business content. Frankly, I think that everyone spends more time on social media than necessary. There are many people who have to use it for their job. But I feel sorry for those who prefer to live their life on social media. But of course this is a choice and I respect it. There are those who prefer to spend their time on Twitter, as well as cinema, theater, concert etc. There are also those who prefer to go out or socialize with their friends. I guess families are the most responsible for the social media addiction of young people. ”
Role model: Her mother. “It’s a great chance to stay as good as she in this world.”
What does she do at home? She prefers to rest at home in her time off work. “Absolutely, listening to music and watching movies at my home reassures me a lot because I miss the calm of my home while working. Of course, it is my greatest pleasure to spend time with my family.
