Over the years his acting career kicked off successfully, he played in the following series Yerden Yüksek (2011), he was a lead actor in Pis Yedili (2011-2012), Babalar ve Evlatlar (2012), a leading actor in Şehrin Melekleri (2015) and in the series Kaçın Kurası (2016).

Ümit played the main male character of ‘Onur’ in the series Kanatsız Kuşlar (2017-2018). He acted very well. He acted alongside Melis Tüzüngüç. It was a nice series and I enjoyed his performance. During his acting career, he has also done films as well. His recent films Savaş (2018), Bizim Semtin Çocukları (2018) and he is currently acting in a film this summer called Dert Bende, which is set to be released in cinemas in 2020.

Currently, Ümit is one of the lead actors in the dizi Vuslat (2019) which premiered earlier this year and it will return in September for a season 2. He plays the character of ‘Kerem’. I am very impressed with his performance in Vuslat. It does not compare to his previous ones. He is acting alongside Kadir Doğulu, Devrim Özkan and Pelin Uluksar.

Ümit Kantarcılar has acted alongside Kadir Doğulu in three different series over the years; Pis Yedili, Küçük Sırlar and currently Vuslat.

In 2014 he was the host for a TV competition show called Kızlar ve Anneleri. He has also performed in several plays. His recent theatre play was earlier this year called Suit (2018). Ümit was performing this theatre play while also filming season 1 of Vuslat.

Ümit was married to Turkish actress Gamze Topuz for a few years. They got divorced in 2016 and they have a daughter together named Eliz Naz. Ümit is very active on social media, Ümit has over 354 thousand followers on his Instagram and over 121 thousand on Twitter.

Ümit is a man of many talents. An actor who has appeared in lots of series and films. He is also a successful theatre performer. Ümit is a really great actor, he can perform a comedy role and an action-drama role so well. He can play a goof character and a bad character so good. This is a quality that not many actors can do well. This is why his role in Vuslat surprises many fans and has received lots of recognition for it. His character is not so likeable but he is performing it well. Vuslat returns in September for season 2. Looking forward to continuing watching him in his projects.
