Onur was born in Ankara. He studied Physics at the Middle East Technical University. He then moved to Ankara University and studied Political science. While there he took part in the university’s theatre productions, and also amateur plays. He then decided that this was what he wanted to do for his career. He went to the Theatre Department of Bilkent University. They discovered he had a good singing voice so also took part in the university choir and also some musical theatre. Onur also was a theatre director for some time and then presented a 13 series children’s programme called Lets Go.

Onur’s onscreen career is impressive and although he has appeared in a few films that included Sonbahar ( 2007 ) Guz Sancisi ( 2008 ) Denizden Gelen ( 2009 ) and Ruzgarin Hatirilari ( 2015 ).

Gonucelen ( 2010 ) again with Tuba, Vatanim Sensin in which he played the role of Tevfik. It was a role that he played very well and does make a great bad guy.

Bad guy appears to be the character of his new role in the eagerly awaited series Carpisma. The series which stars Kivanc Tatlitug and Elcin Sangu tells us the story of four peoples lives who are intertwined after a car accident. In the trailers, Onur certainly makes a scary figure.
