ALI ERSAN DURU
Born September 19th 1984
Ali was born in Ankara, his Mum’s side of the family comes from the famous Turkish dynasty “Karamanogullari” He is the youngest of five brothers ( Oh his poor Mum )
After secondary school he went to study Finance at University, it was there in his second year of studies that he found his love for acting. And joined a theater group. On leaving university he decided to do acting as a profession. So he moved to Istanbul and studied all aspects of acting, from script expressions to workshops, he really took it seriously and worked hard.
His first professional acting job was taking part in the popular sitcom Basrolde Ask. While there he was offered the main character role for the series Hayat Devam Ediyor, as Berat, he played that role for 46 episodes. Then in 2012 he starred in his first movie Canakkale 1915. Immediately after he had a guest role in the film Romantik Komedi 2. Several parts followed including an advertisement for Trivago…yes its on You tube…I looked . Probably at the time his most notable job was the popular dizi Sahane Damat where he played the role of Doctor Mehmet Ciragan.
At present Ali is the lead actor in the summer series Kalbimin Sultani..loosely based on the iconic movie The King and I. In his spare time he loves to sing…that I would love to see. His other interests are horse riding, kickboxing and fitness. He also loves cats, and I have come across a few images of him with the little furry creatures. Ali likes to keep his private life just that…private, although he is single and you wont see many images of him on his social media with lady friends.
Ali … very good actor, fits the part of the Sultan extremely well. A new actor to me, the first work of his I have watched is Kalbimin Sulatani, but I would love to watch him in his other projects.
