INTERVIEWED BY: RODRIGUE ZAHR
WE KNOW HER AS ASI IN THE SERIES THAT IS NAMED AFTER HER AND LAMIS IN GONULCELEN. WE ARE GETTING TO KNOW HER AS A WOMAN AND A MOTHER. A SPECIAL INTERVIEW ON THE BOSPHORUS.
R: “How did you start your career?”
T : “ I was a teenager when someone noticed me and asked me for some photos, so I did couple of photo shoots. Then, I was offered a role in a series by a producer, which I refused. Subsequently, I refused two more offers because I was still in school and I did not want to pursue a career before I complete my studies. I think that I accepted the fourth offer which was a small role in a series where I played the role of Zarife. Since then, acting became my career. However, the funniest thing is that when I was 13 years old, I hated to be in pictures.”
R " How do you spend your day?"
T " I wake up early in the morning and I try to get settled before the girls wake up. I like to see them sleeping. When i am home and not working, i try to spend a long time with them so i take them to the local park and we play together. Sometimes, Onur joins us"

Last words for Tuba “I must say that the photo shoot today, was a lot of fun. Even though I did know the photographer from before, but we got along quickly. I also loved this Louis Vuitton collection that I had the opportunity to wear today. The clothes were original and trendy. Each look was a trip across time and place and I am very excited to see the photos. It was a great and effective team to work with. True that this was our first time working together, but we felt as if we knew each other for a long time”.
