In 2010 he was one of the main actors in season 1 of Fatmagül’ün Suçu Ne (2010-2011). His first lead role was in the series Kuzey Güney (2011-2013). He played the role of ‘Güney’, he acted alongside Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Öykü Karayel. This is where his acting career kicked off successfully. He won the award for ‘Best Series Actor’ in 2012. He did a great job performing the role especially since it was his first leading role. In 2014 he was the lead actor in the series Bana Artık Hicran De, he acted alongside Asli Enver. Buğra became a well-known and successful actor in 2015 when he played a leading role, the main actor in the romantic-comedy series Aşk Yeniden (2015-2016). He acted alongside Özge Özpirinçci. It is one of my favourite romantic-comedy series. I became a fan of Buğra during that time. His performance as ‘Fatih’ was just amazing. He got nominated several times for this role and won an award for his performance as ‘Fatih’. A really great performer. Earlier this year he played the main male character in the mini-series 8 Gün (2018). He acted alongside Burcu Biricik.
Currently, Buğra is playing the role of ‘Demir’ in the series Kızım. He is the leading actor, he is acting alongside his be close friend Serhat Teoman, Beren Gökyıldız and Leyla Lydia Tuğutlu. This is a new series which started in September (2018) on TV8. It is currently one of my favorites. Buğra is playing the role so well. His performance each week as the father is getting more emotional. Buğra is a great actor but his acting in Kızım is really something else. Such a special and beautiful connection he has with Beren Gökyıldız, she plays his daughter. I adore and enjoy their scenes so much.
The film Acı Tatlı Ekşi that premiered last year in December (2017). Buğra played a leading role, the main male character and Özge Özpirinçci played his on-screen partner, they are very close friends. They also acted together years ago in the series Aşk Yeniden. He wrote the screenplay for this film. It really nice to have Buğra and Özge act together again in another project. For the 2017 film Mahalle, not only did he act in the film but he co-directed and co-wrote the screenplay with his close friend Serhat Teoman.
Buğra is very much active on social media. He uses Twitter and Instagram on a regular basis. He has 1.8 million followers on his Instagram and over 440 thousand followers on Twitter. He has an amazing selection of photos.

I’m really enjoying his performance in Kızım, I look forward to continue watching him in Kızım and in any of his future projects.
