Childhood years: Stayed in Germany for five years. When he comes to Turkey, but he never forgot speak Turkish in German in two to three weeks. “I don’t forget the German language that my family regrets most. We settled directly in Sakarya from Germany. Then, when my brother won the university, we moved to Istanbul. I was a mischievous student chasing ball. I did not like working very much, but I was very socially active. I met the theater after my high school years, with the earthquake. A theater whose building was destroyed in the earthquake came to our town. Karasu district. The place where the Sakarya river flows into the sea. My teacher Salim Atar said, “I want to do theater here.” We wanted to help, too. But it never crossed my mind to go and play in the theater. Over time, I said to myself ‘This is what you will do’ and I started. I always say; The earthquake affected the lives of some people very badly, but it also introduced me to my job. ”
Education life: He studied Theater at 9 Eylül University.
First step into acting: He started his television adventure with the Kurşun Yarası (Bullet Wound) series.
With which project did he shine? He drew attention with the character “Izzet”, which he portrayed in the Avrupa Yakası (European Side) series.
The mindset: He thinks that people and actors are exhausted now, there are too many actors in the market and if they don’t exist in the theater, they cannot exist otherwise. “People are now constantly opening theater venues. The television is now full. The meaning of theater for me; Simplicity and simplicity. When we choose the plays in the theater, we don’t look at them just for comedy. We are after texts that entertain and question, not text that puts a finger in the blind eye. Our theater is repertoire theater. The games we have chosen deal with today’s problems. William Shakespeare plays don’t bother people, we want to show how much fun people can have. ”

How has being a father changed your life? Since he was a father, he has been trying to look at everything from a safer place. “Especially if your baby is very young, you have to be more careful and protective. . A father’s discovery of his daughter and a daughter’s father’s discovery is a phase that develops after the mother. That’s why I’m standing back a little bit. I think of myself like a safety, like a shield. ”
His view of business life: He is also one of the founders of Moda Sahnesi. Although it is difficult to run the theater together with the series, he does not regret this situation because he loves his profession very much. “This is about love. I have been in the industry for 12 years and play in theater plays. Because you are doing your favorite profession, you endure everything and you risk this challenge. We try to arrange the dates and times of the shootings in some way. When there is a theater play, it is very tiring. I live accordingly, I do not go out at night, I rest my body, I choose to stay at home at the slightest opportunity. Theater is always there.
The job he saw as a turning point in his career? He sees the ‘European Side’ series as an important stage in his career. “School is over, I came to Istanbul, I started theater at the Oyun Atölyesi. One evening while I was doing theater there, Erdem Baş received a phone call while sitting with friends. Here is an upper class friend of mine called Mehmet. He is also big, with a mustache. The phone is from the “European Side” assistant director. ‘We are looking for a friend with a theater background who will play an episode. He says he will be a little tall and have a mustache. Since Erdem is opposite Mehmet, he is looking directly at him. Our friend Mehmet was working at the State Theater in Sivas at that time, he said “I cannot go, I have a rehearsal”. And we met eyes. Here’s your chance. I got the role. When Gülse Birsel liked it, the character continued. ”
Career plan: As an actor, he constantly wants to portray different characters. She thinks she’s played enough comedy. “While choosing the scenario, I first look at whether the job is sincere or not. I don’t look very emotional. We are doing a job, we are trying to make a living. ”
Is it theater? TV? It has been running both together for many years. He never thinks to quit the theater. “This is a different perspective. It’s about how long you stand behind what you do or will do. For example, I have been doing theater for many years and I do not intend to quit. Of course, everyone will try to earn money, but it doesn’t happen when you say “I’m making TV shows to make money”. Okay, we will make money, but we will also improve ourselves. How much can you improve yourself in a drama. Frankly, I would be unhappy if I was someone who was shooting TV series all the time. ”
Dream of the Future: He dreams of a house on a hill in one of the bays of Assos in Çanakkale to spend his old age. “I love it. I’m going every summer. I want a stone house in one of those bays. ”
Concerns: He is worried about the long working hours on TV shows. “Now the conditions are a little more mature than in the past. Of course, this is a little bit about the production company. Some are very cruel. I realized that I am now starting to be surprised by things in the TV drama industry. Because you are trying to do the work of the world in a tight space and limited time. This is bullshit! Everyone knows that this will not happen. I also noticed that there were no qualified personnel left. A slightly sane person understands and leaves that he cannot work in the TV industry. ”
Role model: He has admired Şener Şen since his childhood.
Relationship with nature: In his spare time, he rests in nature. “I am a man who loves mountains and hills. I have an engine. I have friends, bikers. In my spare time, we usually escape to nature with them. Also, I like skiing. If it happens, I will go immediately, because that white thing also rests me.
What does it spend money on? He’s not stingy, he’s one of those who win the money to spend “I spend the most on the car, on traveling.”
