  2. Que dire sur Engin AK.?
    IL EST FABULEUX. TALENTUEUX.. un vrai sucre d’orge, un infini de tendresse, de qualité, d’émotion et de désir! Son sourire est un bouquet de roses rouges, son visage un paysage givré de cartes de Noël, ses cheveux l’onde de la nuit déployant ses étoiles !
    Engin, nous offre tout au long du passage un florilège de sentiments retranscrits par son visage, son regard, son attitude tellement son jeu sonne la réalité !
    A travers son style personnel et ses résultats exceptionnels, il est l’incarnation même de la performance pure, de l’intégrité et de l’esprit, de la simplicité, de l’amour du partage et du sacrifice et de la liberté !
    On le sent tantôt Amoureux, tantôt Heureux, tantôt Furieux. De toute évidence, la puissance et l’énergie qu’il dégage font déjà de lui un protagoniste extrêmement influent et unique !


    Jamais un autre Acteur n’avait eu autant d’emprise sur moi ni même FAN. Le 12 Octobre est un jour spécial pour moi aussi, car je suis née le 10/10 et il est un plus pour moi !!!

  25. Engin Akyurek is one of his kind. First his acting, he can portray a number of emotions with great ease and he doesn’t need dialogues for them his eyes are enough to show his strong emotions. Never for a second did I feel he is acting.When he is acting he puts himself aside and becomes that person. We feel for the character and all are sympathies are for him even if he might be wrong!! Such is the power of his acting.In the few Interviews that he has given one can see how dedicated and passionate he is about his work and he doesn’t talk about silly things. secondly I love his personality Yes he is greedy but not for money or stardom but for characters through which he can prove his wonderful acting skills!! His simplicity, he doesn’t give a damn about the way he looks. he is not a showoff and a very down to earth person.and last but not the least there are many actors who are good looking but not only is Engin good looking he is very charming and captivating too. He attracts you like a magnet. We all are smitten by his charm . I just hope that he keeps entertaining us like this and May he reach greater heights of success Ameen
