BORN: 3rd November 1992
Alperen was born in Ankara, he lived with his Mum, Dad and three sisters. He was very interested in acting and music from a young age, His Dad was a teacher and always pressured him to do well in school but Alperen said his head was always busy with other things. His brother is a music teacher and after graduating high school he prepared to take music exams.
He attended and graduated from The Department of Theatre at Ankara State University. His working career started in modelling with his good looks he made quite a few commercials. In 2015 he was invited to do an audition and a screen test for Tatli Kucuk Yalancilar. This was successful and he moved to Istanbul. The series brought him to the attention of producers.
Still in the same year, 2015 he was cast in the series Aci Ask alongside Seckin Ozdemir. This was the role that really started his career. In 2016 he was in the series Bodrum Masali again with recognised talented actors, this again was a huge stepping stone for his career.
In 2018 he appeared in the huge hit series Cukur as Komiser Emrah, and his new project which I predict will shoot him right up there is Carpisma with Kivanc Tatlitug. The series looks great. He also is playing a more loveable character that appears to be in trouble but for the right reasons.
Alperen really does get into his acting roles and takes them very seriously. For the series Aci Ask he says that he actually brought himself Alperen back to zero to concentrate on the role of Ali. He studies in great depth the characters he is to play. He says that there are no good and bad character roles, they are what the actor makes them.
He is quite sporty and played basketball for a number of years, he needed to play the role of a professional swimmer and for the role, he trained two or three times a week. However, he says that his favourite sport is billiards. He would love to take a year out and live in Alaska. He loves spicy food and the pain that goes with it. Rock music is a favourite and says his favourite actress Charlize Theron.
Alperen dated actress Burcu Ozberk for a while but they have separated. He has a big following on Instagram 945k and he loves, and I mean really loves his 3 dogs and cat.
Alperen, in my opinion, is only going one way, with this new series Carpisma and that’s up. A very talented young man who I’m sure will soon be taking the leading role in a future series.
