Family: Originally from Ordu, he was born and raised in Istanbul.

The turning point of his life: The flow of his life changed with the TV series “Arka Sokaklar”. He took part in the series, which he started at the age of 9, for 15 years.
The first step into acting: He started his television adventure in 2005 with the character of “Orhan”, which he portrayed in the TV series “Köpek”.
Which project did he shine with? He attracted attention with his character “Tekin” in the TV series “Arka Sokaklar”.
Personality traits: He says that the character he portrays in the TV series ‘Arka Sokaklar’ has the opposite characteristics. “My character in the series; jumpy and mischievous. We’ve had a lot of scenes like this. That’s why people may think that this child is very mischievous. But when I was in high school and college, I never got up from my desk. Because I like a little more calm.”
Unforgettable set memory: There are many set memories, but one of the unforgettable ones is a snatch scene; “We have so many memories. Every time we go to the set, we lie on the floor laughing. We had one snatch scene. We are waiting for the bus at the bus stop with my brother Metin in the series. There is an aunt and the snatcher comes and steals her purse. We’re recording, the scene is being shot. The people around thought the incident was real and beat the child. Someone tripped, someone kicked the ground. The teams came from the set and announced that they were shooting a scene. We have such a memory.”
Social: You don’t have many people in your life. He prefers “less people, more happiness” situation. “This is how I go about my life, so there aren’t many people in my life who would bother me a lot with their irresponsibility. I’m not a liar at all. I’m not antisocial, I’m social, but I have certain groups of friends. Apart from them, I can’t let too many people into my life and I can’t make people easily.”
His view of love: Love is something that excites me a lot. I also love to love. I love to love and appreciate a person. It’s not easy for me to get a real person into my life. It’s not easy for me to give up on it once I get it. But there were times when I had to do it even though it wasn’t easy. This stage is very difficult for me. It’s not a result I can achieve in a few situations. I’m so tired now and I said that if it doesn’t happen, it shouldn’t happen. After a while, I’m starting to take care of myself now. No matter how bad something I experienced, after a moment I experienced a very beautiful thing, it was in a very beautiful place inside me, I value it, I care about it, I say that I respected my own love. After doing this, I can finish it very easily. Even though I say it’s comfortable, it takes some time for me too.”
First feature film: Murat Şeker/ Çakallarla Dans
His outlook on business: He left the TV series “Arka Sokaklar”, where he played for many years, and is very excited to do something new. “I started ‘Arka Sokaklar’ when I was 9 years old with great excitement. I didn’t know anything about acting. But I was always very excited about acting. I don’t think it would be a disadvantage to be involved in the same project for a long time. On the contrary, there are many things that I have accumulated inside of me and that I cannot do. On the one hand, I was lucky, on the other hand, there is a time for everything. It was such a process for me. Now I want to do something new. This is something I’ve been thinking about for a very long time. But on the other hand, there is a business that has been going on for 15 years. It doesn’t matter what job it is. Even if you go to an office for 15 years, it is difficult to leave. “
Career plan: He is very happy to take part in new projects after ‘Arka Sokaklar’. “On the one hand, I am very happy to do something new, on the other hand, I have accumulated great memories and met very nice people. Of course, those people are very important in my life now. Frankly, I’m a little excited for what’s next. There was no resentment due to leaving the series. Everything has its time. I think this is the right time for me too. It’s not a decision that I made out of sudden thought. 10 years ago I wanted to do something new. I go to the set 2-3 days a week. I don’t work very hard. Now I want to work more. I want to push a little harder. This turns into a comfort zone after a while. Not a bad thing at times. Everyone has their comfort zone. But we need to get out of that safe zone a little bit. Because if you want to achieve something, this is necessary. It applies to every job. Because if nothing triggers you outside of your comfort zone, you can advance at a certain level.”
Future Dream: He has a lot of expectations from the future. “I expect too much thing. First I want to say to myself “yes that’s what I wanted”. It doesn’t matter what happens next. I want to satisfy myself first.”
