What's the most exciting project that you have worked on so far?

Honestly, they were all exciting. If the character is not a historical figure or the character's journey is not clear that means I will be deciding its fate. This in itself is very exciting. On the other hand, breathing life into a new character means that I get to experience character's choices and live an alternate life simultaneously. There are things I know as Esra and things I will learn as this character. I have been working on Corinne Lütfü. I have never been this excited for any project before. I am so looking forward to it. In the future, my answer would be Corinne.

How do you like to spend your free time?

I am a third year law student. Since it's impossible to pass my exams while I am working, I have been mostly studying for the past few months. I can confirm that studying law is very challenging. I am struggling like most of my friends but I love it at the same time. I usually spend my time studying. Learning makes me happy and I wouldn't change that with anything else. When I am working, movie sets can be exhausting so in general, I enjoy being at home or spending time with family and friends.

Do you think that there is a positive correlation between having a social media presence and acting career?

Like in everything else, there are positive and negative effects. I am not sure if using social media effectively means having a presence or posting something regularly. I think the right way is rather relative. There are many successful people that use social media professionally to boost their careers. For me, social media is a tool where I communicate directly with my followers. Therefore, I try to make time for it.

What advice would you give for aspiring young actors?

First of all, I would like to point out that they will end up accepting the negative aspects of it while embracing the positive. You have to take the good with bad. Make good friends who will always tell only the truth and provide sincere and constructive feedback. And never stop observing.

What is your skin care routine? Which products are your go-to?

Aside from genetic factors, sleep, personal care and diet directly affect your skin. For healthy skin, I focus on these factors first. I use water based moisturisers to hydrate my skin. I also use SPF regularly to protect my skin. I drink at least 2 litres of water. I use a facial cleanser to clean and moisturise my skin before I go to bed. try to use natural products as much as I can.

What are the hair products you specifically use for summer?

Thanks to the heat, showering more, sun, sea water even wind damage your hair. The same factors for a better skin apply for hair as well: Sleep schedule, balanced diet, genetics... Additionally, I usually prefer products that keep my hair naturally moisturised. I get a lot of questions about my shiny and healthy hair. For summer, I use Herbal Essences Aloe and Avokado Hair Mask. The vitamin in both aloe and avocado will nourish hair even in one use.
