Her acting career began in 2011, a leading role in the series Küçük Hanımefendi (2011-2012). Then the role of ‘Zehra’ in Kayıp Şehir (2012-2013). Her acting career kicked off successfully when she played the lead female character in the series Burgünün Saraylısı (2013-2014), she acted alongside Serhat Teoman. In 2016 Cansu played in two different series, Göç Zamanı and Familya. I really enjoyed her performance in the series Familya. It was a nice comedy series, unfortunately, it ended quickly. In Familya she played the character of ‘Hare’, she acted alongside Uğur Yücel, Erkan Kolçak Köstendil, Aybüke Pusat and Şükran Ovalı. In 2017 she was the lead actress in the drama series Bir Deli Sevda and lead actor was Erkan Kolçak Köstendil, they were dating during that time.
Cansu knows German and English.
Her first film was in 2014, the film İksir. Since then she has acted in two other films. The lead actress in the international Turkish film I Am You (2018) and she acted in the thriller film Anna which will be released in 2019. The film was filmed in France and it stars Luke Evans and Helen Mirren.
Currently, Cansu is acting the role of ‘Fatma’ in the great series Mehmetçik: Kutlu Zafer. She joined the cast of Mehmetçik in May 2018 near the end of season 1. She acts alongside Hakan Vanlı and İsmail Hacıoğlu. She has been performing the role of Fatma really well. Great acting, I’m enjoying her performance.
Cansu married actor Erkan Kolçak Köstendil in August of 2018. They met on the set of the series Familya in 2016. They fell in love and that is when their relationship began. In 2017 also they acted together for the second time in the series Bir Deli Sevda. In October 2017 they got engaged. They have beautiful photos together on their Instagram accounts especially some of their wedding photos absolutely stunning.
Cansu is very active on social media, she uses Twitter and Instagram. She has a little over 355 thousand followers on her Instagram and over 21.2 thousand followers on Twitter. She has a very nice selection of photos on her Instagram including some beautiful travel and dance photos including some from her wedding. She is close friends with fellow actresses Leyla Lydia Tuğutlu, Elifcan Ongurlar, Begüm Akkaya and Şebnem Bozoklu.
Cansu Tosun is a great actress. She can play the comedy and drama roles really well. She is considered to be an underrated actress but has gained lots of recognition and fans over the last few years. In the near future, I have no doubt that she will become one successful actress. I look forward to continuing watching her in Mehmetçik: Kutlu Zafer and I’m excited to see what project she will be acting in next.
