Born April 29th 1982

Cengiz was born in Istanbul. His Dad was a Bulgarian immigrant to Turkey.  He was a qualified basketball player for Ulkerspor a basketball team in the Turkish league. He played there for 7 years, then transferred to Eregil Spor where he remained for 2 years he then graduated in 2008 from Marmara University sports department.  During this time he also started modelling… He did really well in modelling competitions and he was chosen as a model for Prada in Italy and Japan.

He got acting training from Sahika Tekand and joined her workshops. He then got roles in several TV series including Doktorler and Hicran Yarasi. He has made three movies the first of which in 2012 was the popular Fetih 1453 where he played the role of Giovanni Giustiniani. It is said that he didn’t get the main role as the Sultan as his eyes were blue. He competed in the series Survivor Unluluer-Volunteer Race but he was eliminated on the 94th day.

In 2014 he started in the TV series Dirilis Ertugrul as Turgut Alp. This role has majorly boosted his popularity.  He is fluent in English and loves sports including Athletics, Billiards, Bowling, Boxing, Cycling. and motorbiking all of which its said he is very good at.

He is active on Instagram and has some particularly good images of himself. He has been in a long term relationship with Sevgilisi Beatrice. He also has a dog a cute Jack Russell who appears in some of his photos.

I think the role in Dirilis suits him well, but I would like to see him in a updated romantic role with a new image..looking at his earlier photos, the clean cut look really suits him.
