Education: Graduated from Işık University, Department of Industrial Engineering. She studied acting at the Dilek Sabancı State Conservatory Theater Department.

Turning point in her life: While studying Industrial Engineering, acting came into her life as a hobby. “Actually, there has always been art in my life. It came into my life as a hobby while I was studying at university. I had so many friends around me who encouraged this, that there were people in my family who did this job. Those who are on the production side of the business, producers, those in the advertising industry… Actually, this is a job I’ve always heard. All of a sudden, I was very fascinated, the thing I wanted most was to be an actor and it happened. It is already a 3-year adventure for me.”

The first step into acting: She started her television adventure in 2018 with the character of “Gülten”, which she portrayed in the TV series “Bir Zamanlar Çukurova”.

Personality traits: Someone who lives their anger to the fullest. She is not a person who is easily surprised.

Mindset: She tries to be an inspiration to other people in everything he does. “I am willing to give opinions about other people. For example, let me talk about the rape scene in Bir Zamanlar Çukurova. It was such a beautiful performance scene that for me I could be the voice of the women who were raped there. It is actually fascinating to offer a glimpse of life, to all kinds of events.”

Source of happiness: She was a guest on a television channel in Lebanon and shot for a magazine, she was very happy with the attention she received there. “Once it created a tremendous awareness internally. No matter how small an area you think it occupies in the series, you realize how big of an impact it actually has. I saw that what you are doing is actually not that simple, it adds a lot of interaction with invisible bonds, and there is something in it that I can quite notice. At the same time, it is something that enlarges your goals and feeds and caresses your desire for this job. You can’t say you will quit when you notice the interest there. You feel the need to set sharper goals forward.”

Her outlook on life: She likes to surprise herself. “I am someone who enjoys when I can surprise myself. I’m on my way to surprise myself to go beyond my own limits. Because I have no expectations from anyone and I learned this in a short time. Of course I have expectations. For example, I have expectations from my lover or business life. But I’m talking about not holding on to expectations.”

Her outlook on business: Acting was not something she had dreamed of before. But once she got into it, she saw that she could reach larger audiences and started to feel pleasure. “I watch myself, I hear a lot of people who say, ‘I can’t watch myself and look objectively’. It was difficult at first, but I realized that without watching, this work could not be progressed in a healthier way, at least I would be deficient in terms of self-development. So it’s part of my work that I watch myself. I’m at peace with myself because you can’t do this job without being at peace with yourself. Like beauty, everything is relative. Maybe he can’t watch it because he doesn’t like himself. If the person cannot monitor himself, I ask the reasons. Maybe he finds his acting inadequate, maybe he doesn’t like the character. Everything is so important when actually doing this job. Are you doing it to please the audience or do you have a purpose? What kind of place do you feed while playing that character? These are all very important questions. Above all, if you are not sure what you want to play, you will read shortcomings in front of the camera.”

Career plan: She does not look at business life as just practicing her profession. “I would like to position myself in art as much as possible. For now and later. However, you can stretch it from time to time for some commercial concerns, some expectations of being a profession, and survival. I don’t like to make concessions on myself too much. If I am doing a profession, that profession should feed me. I did not become an actor because I would make a lot of money.”

An unforgettable memory: She cannot forget a memory she had with her mother. “One day, I was driving long distances with my mother. We were on our way from Istanbul to Balıkesir. At that time, we had a summer house in Balıkesir. We were having a very bad day. I hadn’t slept until very late at night, and she had said that we would leave at 6 in the morning. It was a very angry day. It probably wouldn’t go well. Because I’ve had this habit since I was a kid. If my day doesn’t start well, it won’t go well. That’s why my mom was trying not to mess with me too much, but on the other hand, I feel tired now. My hair is messy, I don’t like myself at all, I’m not happy. My mother got up in the morning, had her breakfast and did her make-up in a very disciplined manner as usual. I looked at her and thought that if one of me saw us, they would think I was a mother. Then we walked into a gas station and the gas man asked if she was your daughter. I will still tell you how I experienced such a thing.”

Beauty care routine: Off the set, naturalism. “I try to protect my skin health, thinking that looking beautiful without make-up is more valuable. For this reason, I only do makeup for very special events or photo shoots. In times like these, eye makeup is the part that I envy the most. The way to make the expression meaningful is to reveal the eyes. A meaningful pair of eyes is very important in cinema. I like to use vibrant colors on the eyes.”

How she keeps her form: She pays attention to her diet. “I started to take extra care of my diet, especially after the pandemic, for my immunity. I have observed that some dietary supplements, such as vitamins C, D, and zinc, have improved my skin health. I am one of those who believe that the beauty of our skin is directly proportional to what we eat. The skin definitely suffers from suddenly changing the nutritional balance, applying any diet, not eating all day and suddenly being loaded. For example, in any imbalance, acne immediately appears on my skin. At such times, I perceive it as my body’s reaction to me and review the conditions I am in.”

What does she do at home? She likes to just do nothing when she’s alone. “Those stopping moments mean a lot to me.”
