How was your university years? Do you have memories which you did not forget?
My school years were superb and amusing. I did not forget the first day of my school life, my first film, the short movies which we shot, my friends, my teachers and the festivals which we meet.
Did you always want to be an actor or did you want to go this way when you started to study this department?
I always want to be an actor but I didnt’t try it at the first years of my school. Then my friend Leona shot a short movie and gave me a role. Our teacher and director Oğuzhan Tercan encouraged me to be an actor. After short films and episode acting my actor adventure started.
