From the Interview with Orkuncan Izan

How did you cross paths with Turgay, both the author of the theatre play Misket and your playmate?

Turgay was my classmate from the Department of Theater at Bilkent University. We had a dream to make a theatre at school. We used to come to Istanbul and watch games all the time. In this way, we were more encouraged. After graduation, we settled in Istanbul. We were lucky and now we are playing at the same theatre play together.

How did this journey from Ankara to Istanbul start?

Theater is learned in Ankara, but it is performed in Istanbul. Unfortunately, our opportunities in Ankara are very limited. I knew that somehow my path would fall on Istanbul. I made all my preparations accordingly. I am very happy to be here.

Is there a moment that makes you say that 'I am glad I have become an actor?'

While I was studying Archaeology at Hacettepe University, I was acting as a hobby at Ankara Mujdat Gezen Atelier. I was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Sadri Alisik Awards with the theatre play I acted there. In that moment, I realized that acting was not a hobby for me. Since I could not do theater together with the school, I dropped out of Archaeology and moved to the Theater Department of Bilkent University.

Making art in Turkey and being an artist is getting more and more difficult day by day. Does it scare you?

I don’t think acting is about age. It is much more difficult to make theater for a young person, but when I look at the plays I watch, I see that the young generations of newly graduated people give very good performances. When you pursue the work you truly believe in, life pays off for you.
