Murat was born in Kayseri, Turkey. After finishing middle school he along with his family moved to Istanbul. He was a very good basketball player and played as a professional for Fenerbahce Sports club whilst in High school.
He graduated from Marmara University with a degree in Business Administration. He loved acting and trained at the Academy Istanbul.
His first on-screen role was in Kursin Yarasi in 2003. He has gone on to do both movies and TV series that have included New York’ta Bes Minare, Yer Gok Ask, Deli Gonul and he is currently in the new ATV series Bir Zamanlar Cukurova which has had amazing reviews and is hoped to do well.
Murat married actress Birce Akalay in 2011, but they divorced in 2012.
He also learned to play the clarinet as a hobby. He is active on social media especially as he has the new series starting. He usually doesn’t post often and has 35k followers, but he is recently coming back into acting after a break, so I’m sure that this number will increase with the success of Bur Zamanlar Cukurova.
