Aytaç Şaşmaz was born on August 4th 1995. His older brother is İsmail and he also has a baby brother. His hobbies include reading books, music, and acting.
Before he pursued his acting career, Aytaç wanted to become a musician. He plays instruments such as drums and guitar. Despite his passion for music, he pursued a career in acting and followed in his brother’s footsteps. His love for acting began when he took theater in high school. Unlike his older brother, Aytaç is new to the acting industry. He had not been acting for that long. His acting career began when he acted in the film Kötü Çocuk (2017), he acted alongside Tolga Sarıtaş who he is also acting with in SÖZ and worked with director Yağız Alp Akaydın who is also the director of SÖZ.
Aytaç rose to fame when he began acting in his first series SÖZ (2017). He currently plays the character of ‘Feyzullah’. Season 3 will start in September. Since he began acting in SÖZ, he has gained lots of recognition and success. His acting has definitely improved from Season 1 of SÖZ to Season 2. Aytaç has appeared in several photoshoots and interviews.
In January 2018, Aytaç appeared in the ‘Aşk Tadında’ music video of singer Fatma Turgut. In February 2018, Aytaç won the award for ‘Best Debut Male Actor’ KTÜ Medya Ödülleri for his role in SÖZ.
Aytaç has developed strong friendships with some of the his co-stars in SÖZ. He became close friends with Görkem Sevindik, Eren Vurdem and Meriç Aral.
Aytaç being only 22 years old and has been acting for less than three years. His acting skills has definitely improved and he has the ability to keep improving. Especially seeing his acting get better in Season 2 of SÖZ made me admire him more and more. In a recent interview, Aytaç compared himself to his character ‘Feyzullah’, as they are both young and willing to learn, live and see everything through the challenges that life offers them.
Aytaç is very close to his brother İsmail. He learned a lot from his brother’s experience in the acting industry which had helped him in his own career. Other than having the same career. They have other things in common. They both love animals very much. Currently they both are single. They both love music. Also they both love anything that relates to Spiderman.
Aytaç and İsmail are both definitely rising stars. I’m excited to see what the future holds for them. Looking forward to seeing the Şaşmaz brothers grow in this industry.
