The Actress Overcomes Each Difficult Role
We don’t even know where to begin to tell of this acclaimed Turkish actress Burcu Biricik. Yet, as a starter, you may want to take a look at this article:
The accomplished actress has been lately incredibly productive. Even though we don’t know where to begin, Kırmızı Oda (The Red Room) provided her to make the best debut. It was a small role that took only a couple of episodes, but she used that chance as best as she could.
By the way, it is very crucial to point out that the series has been like a factory that produces actors and actresses. Or else, it polishes the star of already-famous Turkish stars. If it is needed to name some of them, Erkan Petekkaya, Melisa Sözen, Melisa Aslı Pamuk are just the few of them. So, Burcu Biricik is also one another, for sure! Although she is not a kite on business, with the series, Burcu Biricik made the pick in her career.
One Followed Another
First of all, we admired the Turkish actress Burcu Biricik with her role in The Red Room as “Boncuk” (literally bead). She starred as a beautiful young woman with her bead-like eyes. (That is also the reason why they called her Boncuk). This young, kind, and beautiful woman had a mental illness, therefore she visits The Red Room. During her 10-episode performance, the actress reduced the audience to tears.

Later on, she has begun visiting our homes with one of another shining role. Camdaki Kız (Chrysalis), which was broadcasted on 8 April 2021, is going to be on the small screen with the 4th episode. In this series, the actress stars as Nalan. She is a beautiful young woman who earns everyone’s love at first sight with her warmth. However, she is under dreadful pressure from her mother and tries to get out of her cocoon.
There We Are with “Fatma”
Fatma is Netflix’s brand new Turkish original drama with Burcu Biricik starring as the leading role. The drama is now in first place in the Top 10 in Turkey Today.
Fatma consists of 6 episodes, and so, it is a mini internet series. Each episode of the drama is 45 minutes long. As for the genre of the series, it is crime, drama, and thriller. While Burcu Biricik stars as the leading protagonist Fatma, some accomplished players such as Mehmet Yılmaz Ak, Hazal Türesan, Uğur Yücel are accompanying her.
The series was aired on 27 May 2021 on Netflix.
The Story of Fatma
We believe that the best and the shortest way to explain the story of the thriller is that it is a story of an invisible young maid. Fatma (35) is an ordinary maid. Her husband Zafer disappears shortly after he is released from prison. Meanwhile, Fatma, who sets out to search for him, commits an unexpected murder. With Zafer’s dark connections learning about this murder, Fatma has no choice but to keep killing in order to survive.
Later, this situation becomes a ritual for Fatma, where she can take revenge for everything she has experienced until today. We must also add that Fatma has a son with autism. However, she losts her son due to an accident, which also damages her mental balance. In sum, she is a lonely woman with a very poor financial situation. she has a heavy burden on her shoulders because of her son’s memory. What’s more, in addition to all, she tries to find her dissappeared husband.
