Afra Saraçoğlu: 5 unexpected facts
The great success of the series “Golden Boy” aroused great interest in the stars of this project. Afra Saraçoğlu, who plays the role of Seyran, is well known to fans of Turkish TV series. What do we know about the young actress?
Fact 1. Afra grew up without a father, who abandoned the family when she was young. She has no special desire to get to know him. Her family is her mother and grandparents. From the age of 14, the young girl began working as a model to help her family.
Fact 2. Afra owes her acting career to her mother. She saw the announcement of the producers of the movie starring Ozcan Deniz and Nurgül Yeşilçay, who were looking for a girl with green eyes for the role of the daughter of the main characters, and sent a photo to the casting. As a result, the producers chose Afra. Thus began her career in Turkish show business.
Fact 3. Afra entered the Faculty of Philology at the University of Eskişehir, but interrupted her studies due to a busy filming schedule, so she has no education yet.
Fact 4. After an unsuccessful affair with the assistant director of the series “Ms. Fazilet and her daughters”, Afra Saraçoğlu met Mert Yazicioğlu, who became her chosen one. The young couple is an excellent example of a stable relationship, preferring a quiet and orderly life in the countryside, away from Istanbul, where actors come only to work.
Fact 5. Afra Saraçoğlu was first noticed during the broadcast of the series “Ms. Fazilet and her daughters”, where she played one of the supporting roles. Despite the two subsequent failures, the talent of the young actress was appreciated. She received an offer to star in the TV series Yeşilçam, becoming the co-star of Çağatay Ulusoy. In 2021, the show became the platform’s most viewed project. This was followed by an offer from the production company OGM Pictures to shoot in the TV series “Golden Boy”, which turned out to be very successful. It remains only to hope that the scriptwriters of the show will not lose their inspiration and the young star will fully reveal her talent.
