  19. Engin Ayurek is by far the best actor of these times. He masters each roll and manages to personalize it in a unique way. He enjoys what he does and it shows in an extremely professional manner. He knows how to communicate even when not speaking. His every move and facial expression tells you what he is trying to transmit beyond words.
    I enjoyed Fatmagul, Kara para ask and Olene Kadar. All exceptional productions. However, in my humble opinion, Engin’s roll in Kara para ask was outstanding. The chemistry between him and Tuba was incredible. It made me really believe they actually really loved each other and it wasn’t a portrayal. It was masterful. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to seeing more of your work here in the United States as well as hoping to get a hold of your book ” sessizlik” in either the English or Spanish version so I can enjoy your other talent as a story writer. Best of Luck, God Bless you.
