Tuba was born in Istanbul, but her family came from Erzurum in Eastern Turkey but were initially immigrants from Crete and Crimea. She loved drawing from being very young and later studied costume design at The Fine Arts University. On leaving University she took small parts in TV ads, and was approached to act in Cemberimde Gul Oya. She was a huge hit with her natural beauty.
Her first lead role was in the hugely popular Asi, alongside Murat Yildirim. This really influenced the Middle Eastern viewers. Who have a big fan following of Tuba. Her next role was in Ihamurlar Altinda where she starred along with Bulent Inal. They fell in love while shooting the series. There relationship lasted two years before and its widely reported that he had an affair with Beren Saat. Which left Tuba and Beren enemies. In 2010 Tuba appeared in Gonilcelen where she fell in love again in real life with Onur Saylak. They married in 2011. They had cute little twin girls Maya and Toprak, and then went to live in France for a while. On her return she starred in 20 Minutes for which she was nominated for an International Emmy.
She then played opposite Engin Akyurek in Kara Para Ask, another hugely popular series. Her final project was Cesur Ve Guzel with Kivanc Tatlitug , this was very interesting for viewers who wanted to compare the acting of Tuba with Kivanc after Beren acted with him previously. Tuba is UNICEF’s National Goodwill Ambassador for children. She has played in 7 films including Istanbul Kirmizisi. Also 9 TV series and has done various commercials for Pantene, Credit cards, and designer perfume brand Lamees and Mohannad with Kivanc. In total she has won 29 awards for her acting out of been nominated for 33 ! I love Tuba, stunningly pretty but natural. A great Mum who loves her work with children. I loved her in Cesur and KPA. Asi was a little slow going for me, but not the actors fault, more the story.
Cesur ve Guzel and Asi season 1 are on Elite, and season 2 of Asi is on Platinum. We also have a couple of her films too translated all in English.
