With the incredible increase in the popularity of the Turkish series, there is enormous demand for Turkish stars. Firstly the beautiful actresses attracted all of the people around the world, then people wondered about the male stars. Now here we go with our one and only Turkish actor Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ.

So, let’s try to put a flash to the actor’s life which is full of success and kindness…

Who is Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ?

The accomplished actor was born on 27 October 1983 in Adana, the city which is famous with many popular names it brought in to Turkey. He lived in Adana until his father had a heart attack in 1997. Then he and his family moved to İstanbul. The actor always dreamed to be a basketball player, and so, he played in Fenerbahçe Basketball Team for a year. Later on, he played in Beşiktaş Basketball Team for a year, too. However, he had an injury, and unfortunately, after this injury, he had to quit basketball.

Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ’s National Recognition

In 2002, the young Kıvanç joined “Best Model of Turkey 2002” and he was at the top. He was selected as The Best Model of Turkey. Then, he won the “Best Model Of The World 2002” in Paris. The handsome young was now the best model of 2002. After this great success, he moved to Paris and worked as a model for 1 and a half years.

Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ Starts Rising as an Actor

There can be said many flattering things about Turkish actor, which we will, but the first thing among them is that even when he was at the top of his popularity, he had never stopped there. On the contrary, he has always worked hard to improve his acting skills. Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ has never been the man of cliche roles such as a handsome, cool, rich man to whom every woman admires. He, on the contrary, picked opposite roles and pushed himself to demonstrate he is capable of displaying difficult roles.

It may sound a little bit assertive, but in my opinion, Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ is Turkey’s Christian Bale in that he always praised acting not his attractive out looking.

Which Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ?

It sounds like a stupid question, isn’t it? It is not actually because when we mention his name, we actually talk about 3 different persons. First, he is a great actor both on TV TV and on the silver screen. Second, he is an incredibly kind, gentle, and humble person despite his international popularity and handsomeness. And the third, and maybe the most impressive, he is a philanthropist who bravely and candidly dedicates himself to social issues.

And when calendars show the year 2008, the actor made his best debut with the phenomenon Turkish TV drama Aşk-ı Memnu (The Forbidden Love). In the drama, the actor displayed one of the most unforgettable Turkish TV characters ever, Behlül Haznedar, who falls in love with the wife of his uncle (Beren Saat). This “forbidden love” became one of the most iconic Turkish TV productions ever and brought international fame to the actor. The harmony of Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Beren Saat, with whom the actor falls in love, was fantastic, as well.

    good night

  45. bonjour M kivanç tatitulg

    en regardant vos interviews en votre langue maternelle et en anglais;
    désolée il m’était difficile de comprendre votre langue maternelle.
    j’ai aimé votre façon d’adaptation avec le rôle que vous choisissez dans vos series televisées mais le souci est qu’on a du mal à appercevoir et accepter cette attraction des scenes d’amour trop exagérés. puisque des familles regardent votre travail.
    vos nouveaux series cuzei et autre j’ai remarqué que c’est bien metamorphosé vers des objectifs qui ont un lien avec le réel vecu.

    c’est bien aussi les spots publicitaires
    je vous souhaite bonne chance et 2012 continuera en succés vous merittez.

    j’espere mon message sera lu par le fabuleux kivanço et me répondre si j’avais mal apprécié l’art quil presente.

    A trés bientôt
