You are looking at a passionate soul standing in the middle of a deserted canyon. He continues on his way by embracing the messages that life gives him. It may take some time to figure out whether it is normal or abnormal . Moreover, you cannot put it in any mold. Listen carefully to what comes out of his mouth, as he is a pretty good storyteller.
In a world where it is not known exactly what it is to be abnormal, there are many definitions of normal. Do you consider yourself normal?
I don’t think I’m a normal person. It is certain that there is a ‘professional normal’ world, and I am very abnormal for that world.
Why did you study in Boston? Let’s find out what was going through his mind in those days.
I always wanted to act. My mom found Emerson College. They have a department on Entertainment Marketing, which I wanted to do something about. Moreover, it also has cinema, television and theater departments. I first got into marketing, and after my first year, I got involved in acting. Due to the education system, after the second year, you have to turn to either the film or the stage in terms of acting. I turned to the film and entered the film world.
Then why did you return to Turkey? Even though you have received such an education, returning to Turkey is perhaps an easy way out.
I did not plan to come to Turkey or to act here, even when I came, I was between quitting acting and not giving up. While in Los Angeles, I lost my best friend who lived in New York in a car accident. In times like these, people question their life. He realizes what he should devote more time to and what he is wasting time on. At that time, I started to feel like a robot. I didn’t have a particular lifestyle for me, because the system is taking you out of it. As you try to keep up with the pace of the system, you begin to lose your self. I was 24 years old and felt immersed in a system. I wanted to disappear a little and get away from it all. That’s why I came here. The first thing I did as soon as I arrived was to join the military. I stayed here when I returned. I still have no clear idea why I stayed, I just knew I didn’t want to go back. Then, I went to China, made a movie, came back. Acting continued. Meanwhile, I continued to question acting, whether it was worth it. Life gives you certain messages, it is important whether your perception is clear or not. So instead of the system, I let those messages guide my life. I wanted to live life like this because it was more interesting to me that way.

Have you had any adaptation problems?
Of course. I’ve built myself a temporary life here, yes, but I was thinking I’d be back in the summer. Then, Mine Güler appeared before me. He advised me to correct my Turkish and helped me. It made me believe that I could have an acting career in this country. Devrim Yakut and me got together and we worked with Devrim Abla for a few months. Afterwards, I crossed paths with D Yapım and Altan Dönmez, they believed in me and thus the story began.
