Are Turkish actors more popular than Hollywood actors?
An excerpt from an interview with Global Agency CEO Izzet Pinto, who believes that Turkish stars are more popular in Europe than Hollywood ones.
What male names are popular abroad now?
Can Yaman, Engin Akyürek, Kerem Bürsin and Onur Seyit Yaran are the actors who are now in the spotlight.
What about female names?
Demet Özdemir, Beren Saat, Özge Gürel, Hazal Kaya, but number one is Cansu Dere. The series ‘Mother’ was insanely popular, and now ‘Unfaithful’ is a great success.
P.S. Mr. Pinto only talks about the TV shows and actors his company sells, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see other Turkish superstars on the list.
