Hande Soral was born on February 2nd 1987 in Bursa, Turkey. She has two younger siblings who are twins, Bensu and Bedirhan. She graduated from high school in Bursa and moved to Istanbul for university. Hande studied and graduated from the Psychology Department at Istanbul Bilgi University.

Hande never had plans to become an actress. One night in 2008, Hande was at the right place at the right time. She was in the audience of a comedy show called
Komedi Dükkanı. The host of the show was Tolga Çevik. Hande got chosen to go on stage randomly from the audience to participate in a skit. The producer was impressed by her personality and sense of humor. Her life changed from that night. That was her first television appearance and it was by pure chance, a random act. With some assistance from that producer her acting career began in 2008. He offered Hande her first role.

In 2008, Hande played the role of one of the main characters in the series Küçük Kadinlar (2008-2010). Following that she appeared as a supporting actress in few series before she landed her next big role, which was in 2014. Hande played the role of ‘Azelya’ in the drama series Çalıkuşu (2013-2014), she acted alongside Burak Özçivit and Fahriye Evcen. I remember watching her in that series, she performed great even though her character was not a ‘good’ character. Hande also acted in a film, she played the role of ‘Cennet’ in
Birlesen Gönüller (2014). She became a successful actress over the years. In 2016 she played the main female character in the series Kalbim Yangın Yeri. In 2017 she acted in the film Biz Size Döneriz alongside Çağlar Ertuğrul. Hande played the role of ‘Handan’ in season 2 of the action series İsimsizler (2017). Hande Soral has acted in two films and more than seven series.

In October 2015 Hande started dating actor İsmail Demirci. In July 2017 they had their engagement ceremony. In October 2017 they got married. They are one amazing couple. They are both very active on social media and love to travel.

Hande has a special bond with her younger sister actress Bensu. Even though Hande is four years older than Bensu they get mistaken for being twins. Over the years they have appeared together in several photoshoots.

Hande loves traveling and doing yoga. One of her close friends is actress Şirin Kılavuz. Şirin is also a yoga instructor and they spend lots of time doing yoga regularly. Şirin is married to actor Burak Sevinç and he is a close friend to İsmail.

Hande Soral may not have dreamed of becoming an actress but by being at the right place at the right time and having that bubbly personality and being talented has made her the great actress that she is now. Her acting has improved over the years. I have always admired her and I cannot wait for her next project.


Age: 27
Status: Engaged to Hakan Baş

Bensu Soral was born on March 23rd 1991 in Bursa, Turkey. She has a twin brother Bedirhan. Her older sister is actress Hande.

Bensu Soral graduated from high school in Bursa. Bensu studied and graduated from the Graphic Department in the Faculty of Arts at Marmara University in Istanbul. For a few years Bensu did some modeling before she turned to acting. She was inspired and influenced by her older sister Hande who was making a name for herself in the acting industry.

In 2012 Bensu Soral began acting in her first series Yol Ayrimi (2012-2013). She played a supporting role, acted alongside Engin Altan Düzyatan and Hamdi Alkan. She then continued acting in several projects including Boynu Bükükler in 2014 before she landed a leading role in the series Tatlı Küçük Yalancılar (2015) which is the Turkish version of the American series Pretty Little Liars. She played the character of ‘Aslı’ which is similar to the role that American actress Lucy Hale played in Pretty Little Liars. She and actress Dilan Çiçek Deniz became close friends after acting together.

In 2016 Bensu became a well-known actress when she played a leading role the character of ‘Melek’ in the popular and successful series İçerde (2016-2017), she acted alongside Çağatay Ulusoy and Aras Bulut İynemli. I liked her in that series. I loved the bond between her and Aras (he played the role of ‘Mert’). For her role in İçerde she was nominated for awards several times.

Bensu has appeared in commercials and has done several photoshoots. She is a brand face for Max Factor Turkiye.
In 2017 Bensu appeared in the ‘Kader’ music video of the popular singer Murat Dalkılıç. Bensu started dating businessman Hakan Baş in October 2015. In March 2018 they got engaged and they are planning on having their wedding in a few months in the fall of 2018.

Bensu has a twin brother but she and her sister Hande are easily mistaken for being twins. Bensu is four years younger than Hande. In March 2017, the Soral sisters were guests on the Beyaz Show.

I would like to see the Soral sisters acting in the same project in the future. That would be really nice. Hande is a more experienced actress but her sister Bensu is not that far behind she is following in her sister’s footsteps. I like both of them but I do favour Hande Soral over Bensu Soral. They both are great and I’m looking forward to seeing them progress in the acting industry.
