Siblings: She has a sister.
Family: Her mother is a teacher, hed father is an engineer. Originally from the east, she has a sister. “‘Hivda’ means coming from the Moon. My mother learned my name from a loved one while teaching in Diyarbakır. She said, “Promise to give her that name if you have a girl!” When my father liked this name, it was the joint decision of the two. The meaning of names is valuable for my family. There is only one other person in my family who chooses art as a profession. But everyone is very interested in art. Since our childhood, my brother and I have grown up with art. My mother and sister have been painting for years. My brother has vocal training. My father is an engineer, but the baglama plays. My mother imagined that I was playing the violin while I was still in the womb. By entering the conservatory in middle school, I realized his dream. ”
Childhood years: Her relationship with music started when she was 8 years old when her father bought a walking organ for home “When I started playing the melodies I heard before I had a musical education, my mother and father imagined that I would build my future on music. I won the Conservatory and was selected for the violin section, voluntarily and with the convenience of my hand. I was very adventurous as a kid and my front teeth were badly damaged during a bike race. Then my years were spent in orthodontists and dentists until I went to university. As a girl who spent her adolescence with braces in her teeth, I couldn’t laugh much. Now I enjoy being able to laugh to your heart’s content. ”
How did she decide to become an actress? She felt she would be an actress since childhood. “We experience the purest form of playing games in childhood. I still have the taste I get from the games I play on the street. I generally did not like games such as hopscotch and ebelemece, I created games with stories for myself. And getting into those roles would have excited me. So, from the moment I was old enough to play on the street, I knew I would choose this profession. I remember how I envied the theater students in the next building when I was in the violin department. My brothers / sisters, whom I missed at that time, became my colleagues now. As someone who only watched children’s play until the age of 10, I watched a real theater play at the event held by our school’s theater department on March 27, World Theater Day. From that moment I knew where I wanted to be. But until I reached college age, I could not tell my family about my decision and continued in the music department. It was a great chance that my first job was musical. I can say that playing in a musical in the second year of my education in the theater department has improved me a lot. It was an alternative theater musical written and directed by Engin Alkan. It has been an excellent training for me. Sometimes I would like to jump on the stage and play those roles. ”
Education life: She studied secondary school and high school in Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University State Conservatory Violin Department. She graduated from Haliç University Conservatory Theater Department in 2015.
First step into acting: She started her television adventure with the series ‘Fugitive’.
With which project did she shine? He drew attention with the character of ‘Ada’ in ‘Phi’ series.
Personality traits: Calm, melancholic, emotional, responsible. “I am the smart, calm, emotional, responsible daughter of my mother and father. Everyone knows me with these qualities. A job can be entrusted to me blindly. My brother knows that when he needs emotional support, I will comfort him. I am the sister of all my cousins. I am the ‘first eye pain’ of all my aunts and uncles. I am the coy but strong daughter of the house. ”
Mindset: “None of us are as much as what we just talked about or wore. We have cracks in our parental relationships, our weaknesses, our habits that we do not even realize, and we have traits that will make people thank our existence. We are one with them. While creating the character, it is necessary to be able to imagine all these in order to be alive like us. I say to dream, because it is not something that can be solved solely through logic.
What kind of person is she on set? Serious in the work environment. She drinks the most water on the set. “But I got used to tea and coffee on set, which I don’t drink in my daily life. While we were filming the Konak scenes in Ambassador’s Daughter, we were generally playing a game in a corner with my fellow actors at every wait. Since I have left the mansion, I cannot see them much. Now my time is spent mostly with Neslihan, Engin, Beren and Uraz. It is great to consider our job not only as a job, but as an opportunity for good friendships. ”
View of life: She likes to keep up with the flow of life. “I think one should be able to flow like water. Sometimes slow, sometimes fast. Life is too short to represent a single thing. ”
Career plan: She would like to play the characters ‘Carrie Mathison’ in ‘Homeland’ with Nina in the movie ‘Black Swan’. “In my development and change process, there will of course be challenges as well as beauties. Even if my career is in the first plan of my life, the first thing I always pay attention to is not to forget my personality and how and why I set out on this path. I will continue to look for elements that will serve my art and acting in the projects I choose and will choose. Regardless of our profession, each of our career steps should be stronger than the last and inspire our new colleagues. ”
Dream of the Future: She has many dreams and goals she wants to realize. She believes that she will achieve all of them in time. “I prefer not to say my wishes that I hold for now so that they will come true.”
Who is her biggest critic in life? Her mother.
Relationship with nature: She loves being in nature and animals. She thinks we are indebted to animals and nature. “We stole a lot from their lives for our own comfort. We must all take steps to compensate for this, so that this world is our world. Fortunately, we will take steps to increase awareness of this. During the quarantine process, we often read news about how nature renews itself. The nature, which we normally expect to take revenge on us, has actually embarrassed us with its affection. Maybe, if we can imitate nature a little in this new period, if we aim to give love and beauty, and isolate from the feelings of revenge without saying retaliation, there will be no need for a global virus to understand that we are all branches of the same tree. ”
What does she do at home? She likes to spend her free time at home by reading lots of books and watching movies. “I watch movies that I haven’t watched. I try not to neglect my sport. I am also a puzzle freak, I usually puzzle even five minutes before I go to the set. ”
Watched TV series: Big ‘Dark’ fan. ‘After Life’, ‘Better Call Saul’ and ‘Avatar: The Last Air Bender’ are some of the productions she has followed.
