Date of Birth: July 24, 1987
Place of Birth: Istanbul
Height: 1.63 m.
Weight: 56 kilos
Sign: Leo
Eye color: Brown
Siblings: Oğuz Sevi

Family: Born and raised in Istanbul, originally from Artvin Arhavili, she has a brother.

Childhood years: On screens from an early age. He says it’s a conscious orientation. “Since my grandfather was a bailiff, my childhood was spent in the courthouse. They wanted me to wear the robe worn by lawyers at every opportunity. I won law school the first year I took the university entrance exam, but I didn’t want to go. Because I always wanted to be an actress. May Allah grant everyone the ability to do what they love.”

Education life: After graduating from Istanbul Nişantaşı Nuri Akın High School, she graduated from Yeditepe University Theater Department.

The turning point of her career: She became widely known for her role in the TV series “Yalancı Yarim”. “When I got the offer for ‘Yalancı Yarim’, I really liked the story. The producer also believed in me, it turned out very well. As for the other actors in the series; we worked with great masters; Bülent Kayabaş, Ayşe Kökçü, Unal Gümüş. All of them were very successful, they were grown up, they were almost my grandfather’s age. Of course I learn a lot of things and they all said that I am very good over time. They are really valuable to me.”

The first step into acting: She started her television adventure in 2003 with the character “Özge”, which she portrayed in the TV series “Hayat Bilgisi”.

Which project did it shine with? She attracted attention with her character “Naz Özkul” in the TV series “Yalancı Yarim”.

Personality traits: She has a structure that can get angry very quickly, very little things. “I want everything to be fine. I have no distinction between people, because everyone has a life condition. You will say not what I have become, what will I become. If you don’t, you’ll go upside down. I am a creature with developed human feelings.”

Personal development: Although she has received acting training, he believes in the importance of continuous self-development. “The world is spinning, climates are changing, technology is developing. Flying car will be out soon. Even the child you give birth to is born smarter than you. So you always have to do something for yourself. This also applies to acting. If you want to do this job justice, you will not only get a conservatory education, but you will also put something of yourself on it. None of us are perfect people. We’re down-to-earth actors. There is no point in pretending that we have achieved world peace or that we are solving a very important problem. I think that my profession is something that can always be trained. No matter how old you get, I can’t somehow say ‘I am’.”

Mindset: She thinks her fans love her looks, not because she’s famous. “I don’t think people admire us just because we’re on TV. They like our character and stance. I’ve been keeping this love in the same spot for years and it’s a great feeling, glad they exist.”

Source of happiness: She was 17 years old when she first started her career and was going to the set with her mother. She is happy to have had the opportunity to work with actors who are much older than her. “Because I worked with actors older than myself, I couldn’t interact with my peers much. This gave me work discipline. Here is how to come to the set, how to prepare, how to pay attention to the hours I learned all from Pınar Altuğ. She is very disciplined, everything is in order. Thanks, it helped me a lot. I guess my luck back then was Pınar Altuğ. Pınar would cure my fear and ignorance. She’s one of the most disciplined actors I’ve ever seen. I learned set discipline, choosing costumes and many other things from Pınar. We are very good friends and see each other often.”

First feature film: Şenol Sönmez / Rina

Her view of life: She does not agree with the statement “I am an actress, I act every role”. “You can’t act every role just because you’re an actress. What’s more! Be as good an actress as you want, the project determines your acting. Your soul, your current typology, the color of your hair, your stance, everything is a whole. The perception of ‘I’ll do anything’ is unfortunately a dominant feeling not only among the actors but also throughout the country. We are in this situation because of those who say, “I can do it” even though they can’t. Also, the show shouldn’t always go on. Just like a woman who gave birth or someone whose loved one died, goes on leave, I also have the right to do so, don’t I? Because I’m human too. Here she says, ‘My mother died, but I took the stage’. I find it very dishonest to describe this as a gimmick. Then either go out or don’t say it. Let no one know what you did. Since you’ve announced it, you expect us to appreciate you. I swear it didn’t happen to me, I don’t want to talk big, but I can’t go on stage.”

Her outlook on business: She thinks that acting is not necessary to become famous and that education is meaningless without talent. “The biggest experience that acting has given me is discipline. It’s a responsibility and limits given by starting at a very young age, it’s not cold but I have a lot of red lines. Thinking about something else while doing my job, personal issues and problems are unimportant for me, and I think that this should be done regardless of profession. There is no other way of success. I’m not a big believer in awards either. I don’t want to be rewarded for decisions made by weird communities. That’s why I don’t see the award as a criterion for success. Every new job is a milestone. I am going through a turning point when I am not working. I am a person who lives by faith. If there is no job, thank you. I’m not one of those people who likes to go in the direction the water flows. My effort, work ethic and respect for my job are obvious. If the project I’m going to be in is not a festival film, if it won’t work for a student and if it won’t benefit someone, I won’t act without getting the money I want. I would like the price of this regardless of the circumstances, and I would not work with anyone who does not. For me, the whole work is more important than the role I will act. I want the people acting next to me to be much better than me and I want to be supported. In other words, I believe that success will come with the support method, not the elbowing method.”

Career plan: A long time away from the screens, in the last years of her career, she focused on the theater scene. “I don’t have an ego like ‘The works I sign should be great, it should take 3 years’, but I make an effort to make it so. I love television and I think the television audience deserves good acting. I’ve always achieved what I wanted. There were ups and downs, of course, but I tried. My career has always progressed in this direction. At first, I acted in commercials. Then I moved on to serials. I did not dare to do theater immediately after graduation. But I’ve been doing theater for a long time. Cinema and TV series is a difficult field. Our teachers always call the theater private square. They are very right. It can be difficult to recover from mistakes when performing live on stage. At that moment, intelligence is needed, not talent. However, I think the cinema is more difficult.

They are all different things, but your energy and excitement should be the same while doing your job. The value given to the job should not be evaluated by the money earned. Both theater, television and cinema are very precious to me. I have the utmost respect for anyone who does their job properly.”

Unforgettable memory on set: Her unforgettable memories on set are usually about sleep. “Sleep acts an important role in my life. I fell asleep while recording on set years ago, I can’t forget that”

What advice would she give to aspiring actors? She advises young people who want to become actors not to choose this profession just to become famous. “They have to make the right decision, they have to be sure of what they want. Acting is not just to be famous. You become famous for doing your job well, you have to understand this thoroughly. Not listening to everything everyone says and going their own way will make them see the truth.”

Male attractiveness criterion: It gives importance to honesty. The physique of the other person should also appeal to her. “It is very important for the man in my life to be honest. It ends when she lies. I can’t trust again. She can only lie if it’s going to surprise her. She can be jealous without bothering me. I will never tolerate excessive jealousy.”
