Height: 1.70 m.

Spouse: Caner Erkin

Pets: She has a dog.
Family: Originally from Izmir, the only daughter of the family. A staunch Beşiktaş fan married Beşiktaş football player Caner Erkin in 2017. The couple has a daughter named Mihran. “I am the only girl in the family. My grandmother and grandfather were sweet people, and so was my late uncle. We experienced a little too much loss in the family, we are not a large family. Family is the subject I care most about. First of all, I am Şüko for them. I know they love me, and I love them very much. ”
Childhood years: Her childhood passed in nature in Izmir. She was a kid who loved to play. “I still love. It is for playing games. That’s why it’s acting! I messed my head up in a huge garden with warm relationships in Izmir. I also climbed the tree, and of course I fell from the tree. I was a kid who loved to hide. I never stopped joking and laughing. ”
Education life: After studying at İzmir Mustafa Urcan Primary School, she graduated from Fevzi Çakmak Secondary School. After completing her high school education in Göztepe, she came to Istanbul and studied acting at Müjdat Gezen Art Center.
First step into acting: She started her television adventure with the “World of Secrets” (Sırlar Dünyası) series.
With which project did she shine? She drew attention with his character “Bahar” in the TV series “Beyond The Clouds”.
Personality traits: Friendly, natural, modest, hardworking, indecisive, changeable.
Mindset: She thinks that change is inevitable in life. “Things you defended before can lose their meaning years later. Change is one of the biggest motivations to move forward in your life if you can honestly criticize yourself if transformation is in the name of adding something to people. A lot about myself has changed, transformed. But I don’t think certain things about human character will change much. ”
What kind of person is she on set? She questions the past of the characters in her projects. “I think what it will add to me. But I do not judge. One thing I learned from my teachers and I lean back on is that I think that defending whatever a character does, will turn acting into reality. Of course I will search. If I don’t have the character’s past, I can construct a subtext, a past so I can defend it with my imagination. The more your experience is, the more infused your acting is. ”
The source of happiness: What makes me think “Life is getting cool on this”; established deep-rooted friendships over the years. “I think it’s a cool thing to have friendships for at least 10 years and to be like my family. We grew up with my schoolmates, we still have a group we meet. Enis Arıkan, Şebnem Bozoklu, Gözde Seda Altuner, Ezgi Mola. I can always show off about it. I have solid, beautiful friendships and chosen brothers. ”
First motion picture: Osman Sınav / Pars: Kiraz Operasyonu
The view of love: “I think the way of experiencing love changes according to time, perception and experience. In other words, love is something that changes for everyone. You can’t put it in molds. Love is bond, balance is a must. ”
View of life: She always tries to look at life from a positive side. She has no problem with anyone but herself. “As long as one lives, one should not give up hope and change. I am the kind of person I feel like I really respect both those who love and those who do not. Because some love and hate seem very artificial to me. I learned this as I lived. We see the real thing over time. Accepting, growing up. I am someone who questions how much I can change and transform. But my conscience is very clear. My relatives know that I love sleep and I can sleep anywhere. Because I think my conscience is really comfortable. I have no problem with anyone but myself. ”
Her attitude to business life: She thinks that adapting to the lives of others as a part of her role teaches her not to judge, to empathize and to look from different angles. “Acting is a difficult thing to accept being someone else. It has a weird balance, you can suddenly forget yourself and live for someone else. Acting is a business of telling trouble and accepting to be someone else. Getting that reaction from the audience right away is too precious to put into words. Everything in acting looks at your excitement. Theater, cinema and TV series are all precious in themselves. I would love to be on the screen in a role I’m excited about. It seems to me that a good person is a good actor. The real humanity is through being able to live with someone else’s problem as common as your own. Sometimes we forget about ourselves in order not to be selfish. I’m trying to learn that too. ”
Career plan: She has always been involved in drama projects until now, she also wants to try comedy. “I’ve always wanted comedy, but they took it away. Actually I’m a funny person. When I take part in the comedy, I know they will say ‘Why didn’t you do it before?’ People who look at my face don’t think I’m funny. I will definitely play this genre. ”
What has being a mother added to her life? Maybe she was fully aware of a lot of things, but she realized that he and her daughter were an individual. “I learned that I have a field, to accept myself with my weaknesses and good aspects. Mihran was good for me. Boy everything! I noticed that he learned and imitated everything I did from the moment he was born. For this reason, I imitated him all the time, played games with puppets. For a while, I was like a single player staging a play. I am very happy, it is enough for him to laugh. With a boy, you remember again that you were a child. I felt like this after the baby; We were all babies. I have a hard time getting angry with someone now. I also noticed that; I bought toys for Mihran and I thought I would play him, but I was playing. ”
Her dislikes feature: Unstable, changeable. “I can suddenly dive away, I am indecisive, I have unstable decisions, I cannot decide what to eat and sit hungry for another hour.
What can not tolerate the most: She cannot afford injustice.
