From the interview with Ugur Uzunel

Do you prioritize certain genres as actors?

No. What matters to me is the role itself. I want to play roles that I can distinguish in my own way. In Ask and Mavi (Love and Hate), I played a lame and very naïve person while in The Circle (Halka), I played a human smuggler. As a player, I want to try and search for different characters. When I get older, I want to see that I’ve tried a lot of different roles.

Do you have a moment in your acting life that impressed you a lot and that you cannot forget?

I have not one, but a thousand memories. There are so many things that I’m very impressed with. I don’t know which one to tell. I think it was 2011 at the Izmir Bornova Municipality City Theater, I was acting in a play called İşgüzar Bir Tekerrür written by Aslı Ceren Bozatlı. Our director was Ant Aksan. There was a long scene that I played alone, I was asking a question and then waiting for a while and answering my question. A person from the audience took my question very seriously and gave me a great answer out loud. The rest of the audience burst out laughing. Normally, I don’t get angry easily on stage, I don’t laugh right away. But I laughed too, so I couldn’t help myself. We started laughing with the audience. Then I played the rest of the scene with the audience who answered me. As if I was answering him, as if I was asking him, as if I was trying to tell him my problem. When the light went off, we got a nice round of applause. It’s not my habit to go out of the direction, but I’m glad I did it that day. It was a beautiful moment.

Is there a role you dream of and would like to play in the future?

Let me give you a short answer: every role. I dream of so many things and I want to play them all. I want to work with all the directors. I still have a lot of energy. I’m waiting for it to happen.

Do you have any other interests or interests besides acting? How do you spend a day?

Yes, I’m actually a curious person. I have a lot of interests. Currently, I spend the most time with sports. I do fitness, I run, I box, I do krav maga, and I do yoga. I am also very fond of cinema and literature. I am constantly working on writing a play. There’s a theater play we’re working on right now, and it’s going well. I also like to take photos. Apart from these, social media provokes all my curiosity. I am interested in nature, travel, sky, and geography.
