Leyla was born in Berlin , Germany. Her father is Turkish and her mother German. She attended primary school in Turkey and took piano and violin lessons too at this time at Turkey’s conservatory. She worked at a model agency, and then graduated from high school and decided to give up music lessons and concentrate on her modelling instead. She also started to study German Language and Literature at Istanbul University. She also speaks, English as well as Turkish and German.
In 2008 she won the title of Miss Turkey, and even entered the Miss World competition . She has won several awards in different countries for The Most Promising Model.
Her first TV appearance was in ES-ES where she had the lead role. In 2012-2015 she played Songul in the brilliant series Karadayi , this is the first time I saw her act, she was very good. She had a supporting role in Kiralik Ask and then she got the leading role in TatliIntikam another series I really enjoyed. Playing opposite KeremBursin in Bu SehirArkandanGelecek next , that too was a series I enjoyed,
She has also made five movies , probably the best known was Delibal where she played the lead role alongside CagatayUlusoy in 2015.
This year she will star in a new diziKucukBirOyku alongside BugraGulsoy.
Leyla is currently in a relationship with fellow actor CeyhunErgin.
She is very active on social media and has 1.8million followers, her photos are great and cover a wide spectrum of her life, both professional and personal.
I genuinely have liked all Leyla’s previous work and am looking forward to seeing her in this seasons new dizi.
