Hurriyet 2014

Those who could not think of Zeynep and Kerem separately created the word “Zeyker”. What will you say to them?

  • Last Sunday, during the broadcast of the new episode, Twitter was officially destroyed… We became TT, that’s all. Our fans have taken over all social media. The support is incredible. We always say “we are a family”, they are also a part of this family.


Kerem was shown to give up on his love…

  • Kerem and Zeynep’s love is like the stock market. One goes up, one goes down (laughs).

Are you that strong in normal life? Do you compare yourself to the characters you play?

  • I also stand behind what I believe in. But the things I believe in are not the same as Kerem Sayer believes, the difference is there!

Were you crazy at that age too?

  • What does crazy mean, I was crazy at that age.

The season finale is approaching, have you started making holiday plans?

  • The priority of our lives is “Güneşi Beklerken” and we act accordingly.

Speaking of cinema… Any big screen projects on the horizon?

  • There are a few. I’m reading the scripts. I go to meetings. Let’s see; maybe if the timing fits with the series.



An offer came from the TV series “Homeland”, what stage is that project now?

  • It is not clear. Negotiations continue. Maybe it will happen, maybe not.

“Güneşi Beklerken” season finale is approaching. And especially in the last few episodes, the excitement is at its peak. What will happen to Zeynep and Kerem?

  • There will be exciting things, that’s for sure, but we don’t have clear information, believe me. We learn as the script comes in. By the way, you know, our screenwriters have changed too.

How did the change of screenwriter affect you?

  • Of course, we were a little nervous at first… But they are doing a very successful job.

Are you glad you’re back from America? Or do you still miss it?

  • Of course I miss America. Conditions there are much more comfortable. But I don’t regret my decision. I am very happy to be here.

Can we say that you will continue his journey in Turkey now?

  • I don’t know, you never know. I can’t say anything like “I’m here” for sure. If a project comes out there and the conditions suit me, I can go. This is a global market now. It looks at a 10-hour journey. It’s not impossible to run both.

You have millions of fans in a short time. Did you get used to the fame?

  • I can’t get used to being famous
