First feature film: Murat Şeker/ Aşk Geliyorum Demez (Love Doesn’t Say I’m Coming)
Her view of life: She states that the strongest emotion she feels when she looks in the mirror is love. “When I look in the mirror, I just don’t see myself. I see the creator. Love starts there. Then I see my mother, I see my father. You can’t love anyone else if you don’t love yourself first. Love begins within itself.”
Perspective on business life: Hertook part in both cinema, theater and TV series projects. It puts them all in very different places. “We are in one-on-one communication with the audience in the theater and there is no repetition of the ‘moments’ we live. We can reach wider audiences with movies and TV series. In both cinema and television acting, we have the chance to replay scenes from different angles with many repetitions. And the audience can archive a movie and watch it again years later. No matter how long we have working hours in serials, the episode shot that week is consumed within the time allotted to that series. The actors say they looked at the script and chose a job. There are a few actors who are really stars in Turkey and they choose the TV series they want.”
Career Plan: There are some roles she says she won’t play. “I don’t want to say big words. What I am sure of is that; I don’t accept the role I won’t play, I play the role I accept. Just as someone else’s truth may be my fault, my truth may be someone else’s fault and I can say, ‘I would never play a woman who makes love’. This may not be a professional truth, but it is my truth. The character may be making out in the lovemaking scene, but in the end, the body is my body.”
Music career: She is also involved in music, sings. “I released two singles. I wrote the lyrics for the song “Only” in the Ajda Pekkan album. I do not go on stage, it seems that this job is not for me when there are so many valuable names in the market who have given their years to this profession. Stage offers are coming, but I don’t accept them because I don’t feel ready yet.”
