BORN: 25th October 1992

STATUS: Single

Ayca was born in Sinop. Her Mum is Tunisian and her Dad Moroccan. She has six older siblings, five brothers and one sister. She did her early education in Sinop.
Ayca always wanted to act since being 8 years old and took part in some amateur theatre productions. She studied acting at the Gonul Ulku-Gazanfer Ozcan theatre and also at the Sinop Municipality Conservatory. Continuing her education Ayca studied at Istanbul University and graduated from the Radio Cinema and Television Department. She remained in Istanbul after this, however she did have reservations and had difficulty adapting.

Her first professional role was in the series Dinle Sevgili in 2011. From 2013 to 2015 she was in the series Karagul where she played the role of Ada. In 2015 she appeared in her first movie Sevimli Tehlikeli alongside Sukru Ozyildiz. It was written and directed by Ozcan Deniz. In 2016 she was in the Tv series Altinsoylar. Then in 2017 she took the lead role in the series Meryem and acted alongside Furkan Andic.

Her most recent work was in the Netflix original series The Protector starring Cagatay Ulusoy.  Recently talking about the series Ayca said all the cast are very excited for the release, and she cannot wait to see what the audience think of her character Leyla. She is really proud to be in a Netflix original series. It’s a very different job than she has had before and she feels that she is part of something bigger. The first 10 episodes are due for release on the 14th of December 2018 with the remaining 10 in 2019.

Ayca is on social media and has 1 million Instagram followers. In interviews she says she won’t eat a lemon, orange or sugar it makes her ill. She is very private and doesn’t confirm or deny relationship rumours. Her images on Instagram are all professional ones. Interestingly she has said that she has had to enhancements regarding her looks however she has had some work to her teeth and this was advised by the actor Ozcan Deniz.

I think from what I have read and seen, Ayca’s new role in the series The Protector will be vastly different from her role in Meryem. It will be interesting to see her in a more ” gritty ” role.
