Family: She was born in Hamm-Bockum-Hövel, Germany, as the first child of a Turkish father and a German mother. She has a brother and a sister.

The couple’s wedding took place in the town where Selma Ergeç lived while in Germany. The couple has a daughter whom they named Yasmin. “I actually resemble my mother as a type and my father as a character. My father mostly wanted me to go to Paris and become a designer. I was already lying down and drawing. He was not very fond of acting. My father was a good example in front of me, doing his job very well and working idealistically, looking after too many patients for free, but my choice was mainly for ethical reasons. ”
Childhood years: She grew up in a family that had to move constantly because of her parents’ job. Therefore, she could not have a stable group of friends in her childhood. She always had a couple of close friends, but she knew she was going to leave, so she didn’t get too attached to any of them. That’s why she doesn’t have any childhood friends. “My childhood was very enjoyable. Kindergarten and elementary school in Turkey in the first two years I continued after I went to school in Germany. There was a much freer environment at school in Germany; There you can research yourself more, you can research topics, you are allowed to ask questions, even you are always expected to ask questions. Since these are what is expected of you, you are more free. Your brain is wandering in endless places and is encouraged to do so, so I felt much more free and comfortable there. ”
Education life: Graduated from Grundschule (primary school) Gottmadingen in 1989. After Gymnasium (middle school) Ochtrup, she studied at the Gymnasium Georgianum Vreden during 1993-1995. She studied as a boarding student at Headington Girls School in Oxford, England between 1995-1996. She continued Gymnasium Georgianum Vreden between 1996-1998 and went to Lille / France in 1994 as part of a student exchange program. Between 1993-1998 she played the violin in the Euregio Orchester, Musikschulorchester and Streichergrupp orchestras. While studying drama, English literature and fine arts, she decided to study medicine. She returned to Germany and entered the University of Münster Medical Faculty (Westfaelische Wilhelms Universitaet Muenster) in 1998. 6 After the first 3 years of the school came to Turkey and then did an internship in Internal Medicine Emergency Anchor in Adana. After the internship period, she took a break from her education for a while and started acting.
Turning point of her life: While studying at the medical school faculty internships abroad came to Turkey in the third year. While trying to take a six-month break from her teaching, she saw an actor being searched and left medical school. “When it comes to acting, I had to quit medicine and it happened. But I did not make this decision alone, life guided me. Coincidences overlapped, some things went wrong, some things went well. So life hits you right and left, and I chose to take this road. Since I decided to study medicine at the age of 15, acting education has always remained in me. When I was studying medicine, I saw that I couldn’t do anything, I said ‘I should take a break from school for 6 months’ but then I could not return.
The first step to acting: She started her television adventure with the character “Merve”, which he portrayed in the “Will It Be Like This” (Böyle mi Olacaktı?) series in 1997.
With which project did she shine? She drew attention with the character of ‘Defne’ in ‘Asi’ series.
Personality traits: Expressive, ambitious, emotional, strong, idealistic, warlike, timid.
Mindset: She never had sharp goals like ‘I want to come here, I want to be like this’. “I am very ambitious, but based on the work I do. I start a job, I have a lot of ambition, I want to do the best, I think “how can it be better?” But this is not an ambition like “I will get to this point, I will do this”. When I see ambitious people, I want to be like that, but it doesn’t work. It either exists or does not have ambition in a person. I am only concerned about doing the best of what I do. ”
First motion picture: Reha Erdem / Beş Vakit
View of life: She lives life with its flow. She plans but doesn’t expect them to happen. “My life flow was clear. For example, quitting medicine was not something I had ever planned. I was going to act, finish medicine and become a doctor. But that didn’t happen. I was also very fond of studying medicine. If I continued, I would love to practice medicine. But I never thought of working in a hospital. I was mostly thinking of joining the “Doctors Without Borders”. I never had any intention of making a career in the hospital where I could earn lots of money. ”
Career plan: Acting abroad with the foreign languages and equipment she knows is also among her dreams. I would love to act abroad, it is something I desire very much, but it is not something that I am passionate about and cling together like ‘I will do this’. ‘No matter how I will do this. it’s not something I say anyway. I don’t have such a character, what can I do! How cool it would be, so I jump with happiness, but if not, it’s not the end of the world! ”
Dream of the Future: The most utopian dream of the future; World peace. “This is really my most utopian dream, because it sounds so utopian to me. Still, I can’t stop dreaming. I wish there was no money, it seems to me that if there is no money, we can handle world peace, we can solve this situation. I have a dream of humanity evolving. But if you say, “Which of all these dreams?”, I prefer the world to be a more thorough place and people not to be that bad. I dream of a world where people are human. ”
Concerns: Very sensitive about people, social status and the concept of justice. I can get very angry about it. I grew up in very small places where people treat each other humanely, not in metropolises. Not to mention the country aware of this, I grew up in a small place in Turkey. I’ve always been with people who approach each other very warmly, but I’m sensitive about it. ”
Who does she admire? If he was a journalist, he would have liked to interview Mandela, Gandhi, Elia Kazan, Marlon Brando and Atatürk, whom she was very fond of. “I would like to talk about life issues outside of the profession. People who have made a difference have been at the forefront of many things. There must be big movements to make a big difference, and that doesn’t happen in boring perfectionism. I even wonder what they ate for breakfast in the morning. ”
Hobby: She practices yoga and kickboxing, both of which help her relax.
Relationship with nature: She loves being at sea. “When I have a vacation, I would like to be on the boat, in the sea. Let me see the sea, let it be water, I do not want anything else. ”
What does he do at home? She loves being alone, staying alone and reading books.
What does she spend money on? Relationship with money, ‘Good when it is, not good when it is not. That’s why I prefer it to happen, ” she explains. She spends the most on books.
Does she follow fashion? She’s following, but she’s not obsessed with wearing what’s so fashionable. “My style of clothing is more or less certain and has been in the same line for a very long time. I do not like to shop alone, but I mostly prefer to go shopping with my very close friends and my brother. I do not plan to travel abroad especially for shopping, but of course I love shopping when I go abroad. Sometimes I go shopping and walk around all day without finding what I want and return home at the end of the day without getting anything. ”
