ZERRIN TEKINDOR BIOGRAPHY
Born: August 5th 1964
Zerrin was born in Burhaniye. Her father died when Zerrin was seven years old. She lived with her Mum and her sister Zerin who is now a successful dietician. She completed her primary and secondary education in Ankara. She graduated from Hacettepe University Theatre Department in 1985. She then started to work as an intern at the Ankara State Theatre. She has done lots of theatre work. In 2003 she moved to Istanbul State Theatre and won several awards for her acting roles on the stage.
Between 1990 and 1994 she attended Bilkent University where she graduated from the Art Dept. She loves painting and has a large collection of private pictures. She has held over 16 exhibitions. Her paintings have mainly women as subjects and she says that she likes to show the most powerful women, the most successful and the creative. The things she must have while painting is, space and all her materials. nothing missing. She says that she doesn’t choose between her acting and her painting they are both equally important.
Her screen roles were the film Omer Atay where she acted alongside her husband, she has done several more films and also TV series. Her dizi career is very impressive and she has worked on some very good shows including, Bir Istanbul Masali, Ask-I Memnu, Kuzey Guney, Kurt Seyit ve Sura, and most recently the International Emmy winning series Kara Sevda. Zerrin has just announced that she will start in Sahin Tepesi which is based on the US TV series Falcon Crest. The series produced by Ay Yapim and directed by Hilal Saral will premier in November 2018. It has a good cast including Murat Aygen, Aybuke Pusat and Boran Kuzum. It is anticipated to do very well.
In 1987 Zerin married actor Cetin Tekindor, they divorced and then remarried, and then separated again. They have one son together, Hira. He too is starting to be in the acting scene and he really does look like a mix of his Mum and Dad. She said of her ex-husband Cetin that he is a very positive person, they have a relationship for 17 years and they both dote on their son. Zerrin was then in a relationship with the very talented actor Haluk Bilginer, but they separated in 2017.
Zerrin is active on social media, she has 1.7 million Instagram followers, her posts are a mixture of photo shoots, personal pictures and of her artwork. Which is really good. Zerrin is a very talented lady and gifted with her painting skills. Always a popular actress who gives 100 per cent to all her performances. I have yet to be disappointed with any of her roles, or any of the series she has acted in. Sahin Tepesi I am really looking forward to.
