Berk became a well-known actor in 2015 for his role as ‘Can’ in the romantic-comedy series İlişki Durumu: Karışık and
in İlişki Durumu: Evli (2016). I enjoyed his role. He was great. Berk Oktay and Seren Şirince acted great together. Currently Berk is acting in the series Savaşçı (Warrior), playing the lead role of soldier and team commander ‘Kağan Bozok’. Berk Oktay has been a part of this series from the beginning. The series began in April 2017. I really like Savaşçı and Berk has done a great job so far. His acting has definitely improved over the years.

I look forward to watching Berk Oktay in the new season of Savaşçı. Season 3 will start in October on FOX.
An underrated actor with great skills.
