Leyla Tanlar - Actress

From the Interview with Leyla Tanlar

Do you make great sacrifices for love?

When it comes to giving up something I love, something I am happy to do, then it is hard to make sacrifices. Because I do everything I do with great passion. Someone who wants me to give up the things I already love cannot really love me. The person who respects and supports what I want to do is really in love with me. I cannot predict the other things very much because so far I have not encountered a situation that requires me to make great sacrifices.

Is playing the ney push you too hard?

I thought it would help me a lot to play the side flute. Blowing ney is something else. It is certain that it is very difficult but it is a very interesting and beautiful experience for me. I have taken private lessons during the preparation process, but you have to spend a lot of time and patience to make a sound. It is certainly not like other instruments.

What kind of childhood did you have?

I grew up away from the urban chaos of Istanbul and intertwined with nature. When I was a little child, I used to play in the streets. I grew up on the street, on a bike, skating, climbing trees, jumping, and jumping with my dear dog.

Is it difficult to build intimacy with you?

I get very close with the person with whom I have similar energy. But I don’t get to know many new people outside of work because I am a very homely type. When I do not work, I spend most of my time at home.

What is the most challenging aspect of your personality? Are there any parts of you that you say, I would like to be more flexible?

I have so many different interests. When I should be enjoying it, the lack of time stresses me out. I am a little bit controlled. I want to take care of everything myself. That challenges me, but on the other hand, I don’t want to be more flexible. I’m happy to be like this.

What has been life's greatest gift to you?

My family, my dog, my childhood, my upbringing…

What do you enjoy doing the most?

Coming home after a busy set day or a tough exam and getting under the blanket.
