Born 27th May 1980.

His acting history on screen started in 2005 with Besinci Boyut. He has been very busy and in some years has had 3 or 4 roles in the same year. In 2016 he played the role of Evliya Celebi in Muhtesem Yuzyil Kosem. More recently he played the bad guy in the series Dolunay opposite Can Yaman and also Tolga in the series Sahsiyet. Currently, he has joined the cast of Cukur in a big role as one of the Kocovali brothers, Cumali.

Necip has an Instagram account with 211k followers. Interestingly all his images are black and white, all except one which is a colouring of a bird from his niece.
I think Necip is a great addition to the Kocovali family in Cukur. Very clever casting, he is great at playing the tough guy. And with Cukur’s current popularity it may be a role he can have for a long time.
